Holds up my big/tall man weight!
I have been looking for a stool to use while day hiking and backpacking for several years as my fifty plus year old knees and body have gotten tired of scrambling to my feet from an old Crazy Creek chair, but, due to my weight of 250 pounds no stool was rated for me, until I found this one. I have been using this stool in the Beartooth Mountains for day hikes this summer and last week used it for a backpacking trip in to the San Juan Mountains and it has been GREAT! My twenty something son makes fun of it, but not as much fun as he makes when he watches me try to stand up from my old flat on the ground chair!!
I take a stool backpacking as my one luxury item. I bought this one to replace one I wore out. The old one had steel legs that did not fold and as a result I could not close the side pouch I carried it in. It was the type that had the large plastic disc that held the legs together. This new stool packs smaller, is lighter and stands taller....all pluses. The area of the seat is slightly smaller, but not uncomfortable.
Better than sitting in the dirt
I bought this stool to take on a week-long backwoods camping trip, but after trying it out it occured to me that a backrest would be a wonderful thing. Nothing bad to say about the stool. It's lightweight, compact, sets up easily. It sits well for a 150lb guy, but if you're much bigger it might seem a bit unstable. I'll probably use it for short fishing trips (it will almost fit in my tackle box.)
Great little backpacking stool
Telescopes with shock-cord legs, like a tent pole. Works well. Seems strong, and is light and compact. Ideal for a backpacker, or as in my case, a touring bicyclist. Certainly beats sittin' on the ground. If there is a con, it is that the seat portion is a bit smaller than I anticipated, but is still comfortable enough for a casual campground evening use.
Great For Disney Trip!
I was concerned about standing in lines on an upcoming Disney trip since I am 68 yrs old. This portable seat is perfect...lightweight, easy to set up. My only con would be that the seat could be a little bigger. But all in all, I think it is going to work out really well.
I would buy this again to my kid
When I saw this, I was in a hurry to order it so I could use it for a vacation tour. its a lot of walking where we going. I could carry it because it is a light weight and I could have used it to sit down when I get tired walking.
My son and I use this product when campfire camping with the Scouts. Best feature is that it will fit in or on our packs. Easy to assemble and transport. As long as we keep in mind it is not a beach lounge chair, it is comfortable for it's purpose.
Great packer. Narrow behind required.
I got this for disc golf tournaments, because there is usually plenty of waiting involved. Great stool, quality material, nice finish. I bought it because it was the tallest/lightest on the market. I like it, though you really have to watch where those poles are going when you sit down!
PackSeat Portable Stool
I like to go fishing but I like to do it by motorcycling so this camp stool is light weight and compact enough to pack on the bike with other gear. I have used this 10 to 12 times since I bought, can't say enough good about it. Thanks
Nice packable stool
Great little stool. This pack small, sets up easy, and holds a ton of weight (300#). The seat is moderately comfortable. I mostly want something to sit on to tie my shoes and stuff like that. This is small enough to pack and gets the job done.
