Hello @Timoe1.  This is a common struggle for many folks, including myself.  Personally a chair has become a standard part of my base kit.  I have used sit pads, logs, rocks, and the ground for years, but feel the benefits of a chair is worth the weight.  Some think the comfort is worth it, others don't.   It really boils down to whether you feel the benefits outweigh the additional weight.


These are a couple of options I have used over the years.

The Flexlite Air and the Helinox Zero Chair are both great options and only add 16oz. to your load.


I'm sure many in this community would love to share their personal preference.   Happy Trails!
