    A Great Way to Get a Short Rest When Hiking in Open Space, July 20, 2013

    Recently, I’ve been having trouble completing hikes even on warm days. Part of the problem is that if I’m half-way through a 5 mile hike (or walk), I’ve got to get back to my car, and there have been a couple of instances when I just barely made it. I know what you’re asking: why don’t you sit down and rest? A legitimate question, but my normal trails are in an open space with almost no place to sit, AND one has to be mindful of ticks and rattlesnakes, both abundant this year. I would not give up hiking, but now I’ve found the perfect solution, the GSI Outdoor PackSeat!

    I don’t need something to sit on for an hour. I only need something for 10-15 minutes, and at 6’2″, something that isn’t so low to the ground that I can’t get up. (“Help, I’ve sat down and I can’t get up” just doesn’t have the urgency.) This is tall enough so that I can just get up, pack it away in the VERY handy carrying case and be on my way, and now I can complete my hikes.

    The carrying case is very important to me because I also carry a camera, water, a hiking pole, and binocs once in a while, and I need a way to “balance” my gear without the weight causing another problem.

    I doubt if I could sit on it for an hour, so I can’t recommend it for watching a parade or seating at some other kind of event. But if you tire more easily than you used to while enjoying the outdoors, I wholeheartedly recommend this seat.

    The GCI Outdoor PackSeat is a simple, lightweight camp/outdoor stool that does exactly what it is intended to do.

    I go camping and backpacking quite often. The need for gear to be lightweight is a must. It’s also important for gear to be sturdy. Often lightweight=flimsy.

    That’s not the case here. The GCI Outdoor PackSeat is very lightweight, folds down to a rather small profile and holds quite a bit of weight.

    Although there are a couple of downsides to this stool:

    In softer ground/dirt, the feet will sink into the ground. Make sure you are on solid dirt.

    Also, the profile of the seat is on the small side. This is not meant to be a seat that you will want to sit in for hours on end. The points where the poles meet the seat will also meet your backside. Granted, not in a super-uncomfortable way, but enough to let you know that it’s there. After about 30 minutes, you will probably want to get up and move around a bit.

    Then again, if you want comfort, get a larger/heavy camp chair.

    Also, the carabiner attached to the carrying case is garbage. It’s plastic and not meant to be used heavily. I saw that and immediately replaced it with a proper load bearing carabiner. I bit over kill, but I have a few misc. carabiners on the outside of my pack, so I just used one of those.

    Other than that, this is a solid camp stool. I barely noticed the weight in my pack and since I hang it off of the outside of my pack, I didn’t have to sacrifice any room inside my pack.
