I've got a Giottos (vitruvian kind) but last year I was looking for a small tripod I could put in my shoulder bag, so I bought the Gorillapod with the ballhead and I'm happy with it. It's not amazing either (I wouldn't use it with my 50-140mm, but it's okay for my X100T or X-T1+14mm/18-55mm). It was cheap, light, and easy to find in shops in Belgium.
It depends on the maximum size and weight you're looking for, your budget, and which lenses you're going to use with it. The MeFoto build quality looks great and more reliable, but also more expensive... I think if I had to buy one again (with a higher budget), I would go for MeFoto daytrip.
