I've personally have had this stool for, I think, over 5 years now. From the Backcountry, at gatherings, festivals, through airports, I've taken it everywhere and it still looks almost new. I had a corporal who carried a very similar one in concept on her pack in the military and this was the only stool I could find with the same design; the bottom part of the legs are open so you can slide it in from the top of a backpack putting the legs into the packs compression straps, for fast & easy deployment and weight distribution. Anyway, this thing is a fantastic little stool, and I'm glad I bought one.
Here is the ultimate light and sturdy stool (four legs are much better) to tuck into a pack, briefcase, or art kit.
It also functions as a footrest or table for the palette. My sketching friends are jealous and want one too. Best of all you get to choose the spot to paint from rather than having to sit on an existing bench or rock. Alternative use: a place to sit down in hot climates (India) , long lines (rush lines theater), intermenable tour guide talks (Machu Pichu) You can't imagine how much a seat helps.
Excellent small ultra lightweight stool. Very sturdy. Good weight limit. Excellent for bike packing and touring!
I use this stool for motorcycle adventure riding. At 350g, it packs down pretty flat and small. It is stable, you can reach forward or to the side without worry of it flipping you over. It is easy to take out and set up for a lunch stop on the side of the road. I use it in combination with a small Japanese brand table. The height is perfect to get you off the ground, but still be low enough to set your beer down easily. It is the perfect middle man between a foam sit pad and a full on chair.
