There is lots of info about the folded dimensions (24"x6"x6") but nothing about the expanded size. It measures 18.5" wide, 18.5" deep, and 18" tall. I bought this in hopes of using it in a 5" x 7" tent. With a cot and gear bag inside this seat is too wide and too tall. I believe it is an excellent product for a larger tent or in its own shelter. For that reason I am keeping it. The dual functionality is a definite plus. I intend to use the product as a commode and a chair and add a piece of ply wood on top to make a table or nightstand. A Clip 'n Seal Clip-n-Seal Bag Clips - Large 3 Pack will seal whatever toilet bag you choose between uses.
I don't see any cons to this product. The unfolded dimensions should have been mentioned in the description. I might not have purchased it but for $5.00 (after using Amazon Rewards points)its a steal as the price has increased since I bought it. I guess it has to be the size it is to accomodate people at the maximum weight limit.
You can't go wrong with this product as long as you have room for it.
Boy, was I shocked and disappointed when I saw how much the quality of this product has declined. The fabric is now canvas, not polyester, so it won't clean as easily. The seat hardly has any padding. The seat and flap are attached with Velcro now instead of snaps, fine, but they should be put on straight. The seat doesn't line up, the Velcro was taken off the back side and re stitched, but the seat still doesn't line up. The straps to attach the flap
don't line up with the connector and there are 3 straps, but only 2 connectors, really pathetic. The Velcro on the straps is sewn crooked, one of the connectors isn't completely sewn to the chair. I was happy to see that there is now a bag for it, but wow, could the fabric be any thinner? It was already ripping and so thin that I'm sure it wouldn't last more than 2 uses. The product listing shows the old version in the first picture and the new one in the rest. The only improvement is that there are now straight poles in each corner which makes it stronger.
I understand that the economy is tough and cutbacks are being made to stay in business, but this is really bad. Are 5 year olds making this product now? I can no longer recommend this product to my many camping friends if this is the quality of this product. I of course returned it! I insisted on the return shipping to be paid also. The return was smooth and easy.
I sent pictures and my complaints direct to Travel John and they did not respond. Very disappointing.
We recently went for 5 nights camping, some nights extremely cold and a few raining all night so it was wonderful to not have to go out of the tent. I was sick of going off the bumper of the truck :):):) LOL.
Wonderful is all i can say!!!!
1. Height. This seat is taller than a standard toilet seat and easy to get on and off.
2. Stability. Four legs are obviously more stable than three, and the thickness of the legs is more than I imagined. This thing will hold a huge person or two.
3. Ease of use. Set-up and tear-down couldn't be simpler.
As far as weaknesses go, toilets such as this should have a mesh that keeps the potty bags from falling out. This seat does not have that. One could be fashioned fairly easily though. There is also no visible way to securely attach the potty bags. The picture shows the bag wrapping around the seat cushion but I assure you that will not work well. The seat cushion attaches to the potty by Velcro and wrapping a bag around it will not allow it to stay where its put. I'm sure that a little inventiveness on my part will solve this issue. In fact our bags will fit over the top of the seat, but that's not ideal.
The slight quality control issue is that the flap that serves as a lid has three Velcro tabs but only two attachment points exist on the bottom of the seat. This does not affect performance.
The seat hasn't been used in the field yet but it passed the trials with the wife and looks to be a solid buy. I may adjust the rating after our next trip.
