I've tried 'em all, and I keep coming back to lightweight tripods over mic stands, primarily for use on uneven terrain, since the legs can be independently set (and I'm not about to schlep a "Rocky Mountain Leg" c-stand into the field!). The Joby Gorillapod works brilliantly on small recorders like the H2. Small units like the Slik Sprint Pro (with ball heads) are good, lightweight solutions for even stereo mid-side rigs in zeppelins; stable in calm conditions and weighs less than 1kg. I also graft mic boom arms onto lightweight light stands for more height variability and a minimum length when packed (article on that practice here).
Since most tripods are outfitted with 1/4-20 screws, I use step-down bushings in my pistol grips' 3/8" threads. I also keep a set of 5/8-1/4 and 5/8-3/8 adapters in the bag so that I can adapt any tripod to any mic stand to any tripod. I have 2 each of the appropriate bushings and adapters in my audio grip kit.
