Real Customer Reviews
- Don't leave home without it
Likes: Super light. Simple design. Keeps the dirt on the ground on not on me. Really easy to just whip it out and pop a squat.
Dislikes: None so far.
- Great Alternative
Likes: If you want to be as light weight as possible, then this is the "chair" for you. It keeps the wet and debris from your backside, provides some decent cushion which is better than sitting in the dirt or on a log or rocks, etc.
Dislikes: Not sure how durable this will be, but it seems to be made well. I would expect it to be susceptible to tears, but should not "fall apart."
- great seat for the trail
Likes: This seat is a must have when you are on the trail, you can place it on a rock or the ground to have something cushy to seat on when you take a break, it is very light weight and once you try it you won't go out on the trail without.
Dislikes: It is foldable but is is not compressible, so you have to strap on the outside of your pack, not a big deal and the comfort that provide it is worth it.
- Must have!
Likes: Ok. This is one of those products you think you can do without. But why should you. It weighs next to nothing and keeps your butt off the wet ground, softens hard rocks and stumps. I won't go hiking without mine!
Likes: it's a little thinner than I expected but it does the job and is really light.
Likes: Lite weight
Dislikes: Nothing, well worth the money when you have been walking all day in the rain and want to stop for lunch and sit down to eat.
Likes: If you want to avoid "Boat Butt" or suffering all day from a damp Tuchas, the Therm-a-Rest Z-Seat Closed Cell Foam Seat is a great accessory to have on the trail. At 2 ounces, it's another one of those conveniences whose incremental weight is offset by it's benefits.
Dislikes: I wish Therma-a-Rest offered a model that was just a tad wider.
Likes: Seat is very comfortable. Packs well. Seems to be well made.
Likes: Very light, and easy to carry. You can use it as a seat and under your head while sleeping for extra padding.
Dislikes: Color (mine were yellow) is good, but I have preferred more variety.
