If there is one thing a good Slacker needs, it's a place to sit.

Actually bought this for a trip to the happiest place on earth, but they don't allow stuff like this in the park, so while it did not live up to the fullest of its potential that week, it is great to have an extra seat close at hand and does in fact support the 250 pounds it claims.
Sturdy and convenient

This sturdy stool is great for bringing along to the campsite for some guitar playing around the fire, or for bringing to park concerts to get a little sitting break after standing for hours. I could see the benefit for backpacking as well--it folds down to a small size and you could use it to rest on without having to sit on the ground (especially useful if it's rocky, snowy, or wet). I might try bringing this along on a long snowshoe trek this winter. But as the reviewer notes below, it could be lighter weight for its size, so camping and shorter outings might be the best use for it.
Worth the extra weight...
When I don't have my bear canister with me, I take this guy. I like to pack it on top of my pack for easy access so when I take a break I can enjoy a nice place to sit. Keeps your rear off the cold ground on cooler nights and more comfortable than uneven rocks. I just wish there was some way to lighten it up a bit.

I don't think I have a hook strap but I have a loop strap how does it work?
Great stool for the money
While not as light as the REI trail stool, this one is slightly taller and larger overall (which suits my 6'3" frame) for just a little over half the price. Highly recommend it!

What is the height of the seat when it is open and in use?
Open Dimensions: 18" x 11" x 11"
Closed Dimensions: 18" x 3" x 3"
Seat Height: 18"
Hi Chris, Not to get into an argument with Guy, but I am the rep for Travelchair and the dimensions should be:
Seat Height: 17.5"
Hope this helps.

3"x3"x24" - Pretty tight!
I got this for backpacking and climbing and have been really happy with it, it is great for anytime you kinda want to sit down and have nowhere else to sit. its pretty light and super easy to strap onto any pack. Its just a solid little stool.
