collapsible mic stand

I'm not talking about those music-store ones that fold down to 3 feet in length. I want something that will fold down to fit in a backpack. I have seen things like this for music stands and camera tripods, surely someone must make one for mics. A table stand will not do.

I am usually pretty good at googling but words like collapsible and folding just bring up the same 3 or 4 stands that are collapsible but not to the degree that I need. Besides I already own two of those. I would appreciate even some suggestions for other search words.

(I am flying off to the 3rd World with my laptop and a preamp and a mic for literally a day and a half of hit and run recording and I want to travel Light.)

Can you get an adaptor for one of those tripods with threading
for a mic stand clip? I know they have them for light stands.

I would love to know where to get such an adapter (other than have a machine shop make it).

i know hunt's photo carries them if you're in mass but u can also mail order them from some companies.

there is a set of adaptors on this page that will work.

and this one does the trick for 10 bucks
1/4-20 to 5/8 Adapter with stop

i prefer to use the ENG clamp from cascade and clamp to my stand. it has the correct threads on it and i can also clamp it to some sort of railing if i want to.
you can find that on the same page on the cascade site for 18.99.

hrob id love to check out your truck sometime if it would be possible. im located in boston. im currently a student and working part time as a FOH engineer. live recoding is a dream of mine tha hopefully will one day come true. shoot me an email if you have any onther questions about this stuff .
