Small tripod to slide in a bag?


I am wondering if there is no fancy/expensive tripod to take for casual hikes which slides into a bag, something which doesn't have to become full height, like a table top one or similar so that I can eventually take some landscape photo including foreground by almost ground level or a small tripod with no central column so that I can spread the legs and get very low on terrain.

I have two tripods, an old and sturdy Manfrotto 190 series and Benro travel angel, both in aluminum but both with central column (detachable) but too big for casual shots or when I need to get low on the ground without to have to play with removing something; I soon gonna get my first ballhead (a fancy Acratech) so I will have an extra head to mount on such a little thing.

I am not into fancy stuff so it gotta be basis and not too expensive.

Any advise is welcome

HAve a great day
