Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chair for backpacking This chair is great! It's basically a cheaper version of the Crazy Creek chair. I bring it on every single backpacking trip. It's easy to strap on to my pack and not heavy enough to seriously impact my load (I'm also not an ultralight backpacker - I like to be comfy, unlike those guys). It also works as a sleeping pad, if you're into multipurpose stuff or run into a problem with an inflatable pad. This happened to me - my Thermarest popped on day 4 of a 21 day backpacking trip and while I cursed myself for not bringing a repair kit, it wasn't a huge deal because I just unhooked the buckles on the chair and slept on it. Not as comfy as an air pad, for sure, but definitely a lot comfier than the ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I bought this I am a Peace Corps Volunteer serving on an island in the South Pacific where most people sit on the ground on woven mats. This chair has been AMAZING (and a back-saver). It's comfortable and very portable. It's light and packed easily on the bottom of my duffel bag for the trip over. It's had hours and hours and hours of use on multiple types of terrain and it's lasted well so far. Some of the seams are starting to fray a little at the stress points but nothing that hurts its performance yet! A few of my fellow Volunteers have had these shipped to them once they saw the one I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problem Solved: so it seems I previously reviewed this product and gave it two stars, due to the fact that it kept coming apart at the seams. I took it back to REI, and as usual they were very nice and gave me no hastle about returning it. I was unsure if I would replace this product with the same thing or look for something different. However, my mind was made up quickly when I saw the chair in the store. Since I purchased the chair, REI changed the design. In the place where the seams had come apart twice before, it is now a solid piece of material. Due to this change, I don't think that my previous problem will reoccur. I'm glad to see that REI looked at the faults in the product, and made appropriate changes to fix it. As previously stated, this chair is extremely comfortable, and will continue to come with me on future backpacking and river trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for Me I have 3 of these, and they have been repeatedly used and abused, mainly on river trips in oar-powered rafts. Overall, they are both durable and useful--very valuable equipment. They have provided heroic service as the oarsperson's seat, where they are subjected to terrific stresses. The straps have held out fine, although I managed to rip the seam on one of the handles by accidentally jumping on the seat the floor of the boat it when it was still strapped to the raft frame. .We've also been using these seats recently on backpacking trips. They are light, fit easily in front stretch pockets when folded in half, and are even useful as pillows for sleeping. When not using my seat for sitting or as a pillow, I use it as a wind break for my canister stove. Sounds like good multipurpose gear to me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for hillside sitting I'm not small, and this chair was very comfortable for the few times I have used it. The best use has been on a hillside which I happily sat for a few hours (with beer) and had great back support the entire time. Very light, built strong, doesn't tear or loosen. I like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Do Everything Chair Well worth the weight. It is more comfortable than the other trail chairs I tried. It's a chair, a sit-pad in cold weather, a sleeping pad in an emergency, a leg splint if things go sour . . . Plenty of uses and worth the ounces when the hiking is done for the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps me comfy at the backpacking home camp Seems sturdy & well built. Was a very nice comfort item during a long weekend of backpacking. We watch every ounce, but this one was nice ... sitting on a rock, provided a backrest on the ground or on a log, folded flat for some cushioning too. I unclipped the straps and used it to extend my 3/4-length sleeping pad. It also was a great item to help us get a fire going after days and days of rain. I'm looking forward to letting my wife try it on the bleachers for high school football season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great seat Easy to use and adjust this comfy little seat. We've gotten so much use out of these chairs at outdoor concerts, the beach and picnics. The only thing I wish for with these chairs: a strap long enough to sling them over your shoulder.

I am looking to take this on multiple day backpack trips.  Can this chair be easily rolled up and stored in our outside a 60L pack?

Asked by: PowChaser
I like this chair for backpacking, and it packs well enough. We recently took a couple of them on a 5-night trip to Mt. Langley in the Sierras. Though a bit stiff, I was able to sort of roll mine and then strap it to the outside bottom of my 62L Osprey pack. My partner's Deuter pack didn't have readymade straps at this location in order to do this, but he did fine by curving his chair a bit and sliding it between the brain and main body of his pack and cinching down the brain straps.

will this fold or roll into an airplane luggage or carryon?

Asked by: GPal
The folded dimensions of this chair are 17.3 x 17.1 x 1.2 inches. We suggest comparing these to the interior dimensions of your luggage.

How's your low back feel after sitting in this chair for a while? I'm on the hunt for a simple chair that doesn't create unnatural curves in my low back.

Asked by: chaseyoga
This chair is designed as a light and packable seating option. It has light support stays to for reinforcement. Most people find this chair to be quite comfortable, since it essentially forms to your back shape. Whether it will feel comfortable for you and your lower back is a subjective question that may require you try the chair to find out.
