I agree, I have the Ultrapod II and it lives in my camera bag. A very useful little thing. Very well designed, too: the tilting part of the head is ratcheted and stays firm if you unscrew the head just a bit to slightly adjust the ball. If you need to adjust the tilt, just unscrew it some more.
I have an Ultrapod II and the velcro strap just broke. I'll have to figure out how to replace it or leave it off altogether. It's a few years old, but that strap is definitely a weak point. Good idea to check the strap and make sure it'll still hold before strapping your camera to a tree branch or railing.
