As a guide, I like having a place to sit thats better than a sit-pad and definitely "better than a rock". I don't usually want to carry the extra weight or use the space for a full chair though.
At 14.5 oz (on the home scale), I regularly add the BTR stool to my gear, and i've never regretted it. It's lighter than (and folds down much smaller than) my helinox zero, at about 40% of the cost. I'm 215 Lbs, and I found the stool to be very durable, until finally it was time to get another one. It was used regularly by myself and clients, who always enjoyed it. It also stays on squishy surfaces (like sand or boggy ground) better than most of my chairs. While it doesn't have a backrest, i've sat on it for long stretches comfortably. It initially looked too light to be comfortable or durable, but I've been pleasantly surprised. When folded, it packs conveniently without any flapping fabric or parts that catch on other gear. While I generally like a backrest, I've been very impressed with this little stool.
AWESOME. light, sturdy, capable. Already ordered two more and recommended to a friend!
Awesome product - lightweight and comfortable for backpacking
Awesome! Light, compact, great for taking up the mountain! No more sitting on the ground (my old body has a hard time getting off the ground ) I'd love to get one for my daughter (hiking partner) for Christmas!
Best thing in the box. I had a mini seat, but it has gone to the back of the garage after getting this. Such amazing design, and super comfort. I know this is a snow company product (looked them up) but its going to be perfect to fit in my dry bag for paddle camping. Frankly anywhere you need a pop up seat.
