    I got a Giotto's MTL9351 B Tripod a few years back - solid, removable centre column. I got mine with a ball head as i don't like all the sticking out bits on a pan an tilt style head.

    It seemed to be a fraction taller than the manfrotto - it was around the 100 mark.

    I strap it on the backback and go walking - its get wet, muddy and sprayed with salt still seems fine.

    You don't mention the equipment you use or how often you intend to use it or under what conditions .....

    One of the cheapest ways to get a big-name tripod is the Manfrotto MKC3-H01 Compact Tripod. Up to 1500mm high when extended and fitted with a trigger style ball head for 39.00 from Wex Photographic.

    This month's DSLR Photography has a group test and the top two were Giottos MTL9261B and Manfrotto 190XProB - both a smidge under 100.
    And for ballheads there are Slik SBH280E (75) and Velbon QHD53D at 60.

    Or get thyself down to Jessops and manhandle a few.

    3 Legged Thing are great. A little more pricey than those mentioned above but built to last forever and made in England.

    I've used the Manfrotto 055 for 6 years, not cleaned it, been immersed more times than I care to remember in the sea, yes I had to free one screw earlier this year, and I'm not the most careful user of my tripod.

    But be careful going for too cheap a brand, ensure they are sturdy, keep away from the lightweight aluminium all in ones.

    thanks to everyone so far, I use a canon 50d sometimes with a 150-500mm sigma, its the height I need as in some situations for wildlife and sturdy up north in the wind
