The TravelChair Slacker tripod stool is a lightweight camp chair that folds down small, is easy to set up, and is the perfect blend between comfortable, portable and durable. Perfect for camping, a day at the beach, an outdoor concert, fishing, hunting, golfing, or to keep in your car just-in-case, the Slacker weighs only 1.9 lbs. but can hold up to 275 lbs weight capacity. Designed for ease in traveling, the Slacker chair is no bigger than a rolled-up newspaper when folded and secured with its integral Velcro strap. Its frame is constructed from extra-heavy tubing for less flexing, and is coated in an exterior, rust-resistant powder. The double-coated PU-backed polyester fabric will not fade or degrade in the sun and is stretch, tear, and abrasion resistant. The fabric also distributes weight evenly, making sitting on this folding travel chair quite comfortable. This stool has high-quality nylon connectors and rivets that fit perfectly and will not move around. The Slacker features oversized, nylon feet to prevent the chair from sinking into sand or other soft surfaces. Available in a variety of colors, the Slacker is lab tested to ensure its strength and durability. The TravelChair Company cares about making a chair that is strong, durable, and convenient for your on-the-go lifestyle.

For $20, this can't be beat. It is lightweight and surprisingly comfortable. I've tried quite a few chairs for backpacking, and there are three truly worth considering:
This travel Stool: $20
The REI Flex Lite: $65
Big Agnes Helinox Chair One: $100
All 3 options are approximately 2lbs.
For hiking, I wanted something I could lounge in a bit more after a long hike, though, and opted for the Helinox. It is as comfortable as my couch. And I have a very comfortable couch. Not even exaggerating.
This chair perfectly fills the "budget" space. For $20, you get a lightweight, comfortable stool. If you want back support and are willing to spend more money, the other options are fantastic.
A fourth option is the Alite Monarch, which is barely over 1lb, but sits VERY low to the ground, and lounges too far back. You can't do camp cooking sitting in it, and it is rough on the knees getting up from it.
Pros: Surprisingly sturdy but very light which means not thinking twice about taking it. The price is also very reasonable.
Cons: Must be placed on sturdy footing or risk falling over. Can be said for any chair but the small footprint makes this more relevant.
No back support means you will notice you don't have back support when you get up.
Overall: This is a very affordable, surprisingly comfortable, and travel friendly chair, as such, I can recommend!

This chair is almost perfect. It has only one major flaw. Both the flaw and the solution to the problem are detailed in the second half of the review.
My review will be referencing several photo collages that I attached under customer photos. Each photo is numbered 1 through 7.
The chair turned out to be more comfortable and more stable than I imagined from the photos. I sit on it as I would sit on a bicycle seat (see photo #6). Imagine that the top part of the photo is the pointy end of the bicycle seat, so my butt is on the wide part and it feels pretty comfortable. Not armchair comfortable but not unpleasant.
The slacker chair is pretty light. Photo #4 shows it on the postal scale, and you can see that it comes in at 1 pound 14.1 oz. Photos #5 shows the construction of the seat. Photos #7 show the feet. The feet generate pretty good friction and don't slide.
The chair is 24" long when folded. and when I wrap my measuring tape around its width the circumference is 7". When it is open, the seat is 17" from the ground. I am short and I find that height very comfortable. My husband thinks it is a little too short but not bad (he said it was like sitting on a toilet).
So now, the big flaw. What makes this chair valuable to me is the ability to carry it around. I need it to be very comfortable to carry around. However the strap is too short to comfortably carry it over my shoulder even for small person like myself. And what I really wanted is carry it like a sling across my back. I want it rests on my back and be totally out of the way.
Photo 1 through 4 show my solutions to this problem.
The strap before alternations is 21.5 inches long. The distance before anchors for the strap is 19". So you get only a couple of inches of slack. This lack of slack is the problem. To fix this problem, I cut the strap (see photo #1) and extended it with a regular black strap you can buy at any craft store.
The key to working with these straps is to singe the edges of them so they don't unravel. The strapping material does not burn, it melts. This forms a protective coating on the edges so you don't need to worry about them coming apart. Also it allows you to connected the two straps with minimum bulk, you don't need to fold them under. You see a close-up of the treated edge in photo #2.
After singing all 4 ends I connected the two straps with my sewing machine. I made the strap long enough to be comfortable for both myself and my husband, which required doubling its original size. I can make the strap shorter by feeding the access strapping material into the buckle. I also attached an extra Velcro strip in case I wanted to tuck away the dangling strap while I am sitting in a chair and not bother with the buckle.
With this simple fix the slacker chair is absolutely perfect! I can now take long walks like I did before my back problems.
Ali Julia review
The chair came with a few issues. First, the rubber feet were just pushed onto the leg tubes, but, not attached, and would be all too easy to lose. Each foot had a hole in its sleeve, where you can clearly imagine that a screw or rivet would go through, to attach it to the metal leg. I happened to have some aluminum pop rivets on hand, so, I drilled matching holes in the legs, and affixed the feet. Second, the wrap-strap would not even go all the way around the folded chair, and, was just in the way. I cut it off. Third, the carry strap is just barely long enough to allow a thin person to sling the chair over a shoulder. For me, it was easier to put the chair into my day pack (sticking out), since I would carry the pack, anyway.
The top is made of good material, and appears well-sewn. The legs are of appropriate strength. I like the instant deployment of this stool. Zero setup time! See the photo, where this chair is compared to a Byer Tri Lite, and a GCI PackSeat.
-- Months later --
I saw a Slacker Chair stool in an outdoor store, today. The feet were riveted on, as I knew they should be.
