Currently it seems to me the best travel tripods are carbon fiber and fold over themselves, i.e. the legs fold over the head so they can fold as small as possible. Find the best combination of this at the price you can afford.

3 Legged Thing tripods do this really well but mucho dinero.

The Sirui T-025 folds to just 11.8", the max height goes to 54" and it weighs just 1.8 lb. For what it does, it's not too expensive.

Manfrotto, Smith-Victor, Vanguard and all good companies for tripods as well.
