Walkstool Comfort comes as four different models with sitting heights 45, 55, 65 and 75 cm (18, 22, 26 and 30 in). The smallest model features a large and comfortable seat size, being increased on higher models. Walkstool Comfort is made in our own factory in Sweden and has a light weight construction with telescopic legs in aluminum. By not extending the telescopic legs, you will be able to use Walkstool in a lower sitting height as well. Walkstool Comfort offers big rubber feet and an ergonomically shaped seat of mesh material, making it possible to sit comfortably for extensive periods of time. All Comfort models come with a practical bag to for instance carry over your shoulder. Walkstool is the only three legged telescopic stool in the world with patents and trademark protections.

I am a 5' 9" woman in my 60s with limited physical ability (notable back/spine and leg issues). I believe the Walkstool is going to liberate me, allowing me to get out and about by myself without fear of being stranded with no place to sit comfortably and rest when my legs give out, or when my back demands I sit and rest a bit. I haven't had the opportunity to 'field-test it,' yet. But, in 10 days my hubby and I have a day trip planned that includes 1 1/2 hours total time on a sight-seeing boat, an island excursion, enjoying a live performance, a salmon buffet, and time to explore shops, the shoreline, etc., before heading back for mainland. Of course, I plan to take my Walkstool and put it to the test, but I'm optimistic it will not only meet but exceed my expectations. I will be back after our excursion to update my review and let you all know how the stool performed.
MAY 22ND UPDATE: Here I am as promised, with an update after using the stool on our day-trip excursion. The stool exceeded my expectations ... I don't know what I would have done without it. I was able to sit whenever I needed whether or not public seating was available. In fact, the day had been rainy, so while others sat outside on damp, wet, cold picnic table benches or rocks, I sat comfortably on my dry stool. I was able to carry the stool in it's convenient storage bag slung over my shoulder with ease ... it was so lightweight I often forgot I was carrying it. NOTE: as it turned out, having the Walkstool for this excursion was the difference between me having a great time, or having to cancel plans and stay home. A week and a half before the trip I experienced a major setback. My spine became inflamed and very painful; my joints became swollen and radiated heat. This prevented me from standing for more than just a few minutes at a time, or doing even the simplest of household tasks without discomfort or extreme pain. Two days before our trip, my hubby was still considering canceling our plans, and would have done so had it not been for the Walkstool. The day of our excursion was my first day 'up and about' since having the flare-up. I am sincere when I say that it brings tears to my eyes knowing that even when experiencing a mobility setback caused by a flare-up, I don't have to feel like a prisoner. I can still go out and enjoy the outdoors and going places, within reason.
One thing I would like to mention is the lock-buttons on the telescopic legs (they are used to shorten the legs for storage, when the legs are fully extended). There is an indention surrounding the lock-buttons. Although I am right handed, it proved time consuming, difficult and frustrating to try and press in the buttons with my right hand. This was because the fingernails on my right hand are moderately long; they extend beyond my fingertips. It was very easy to press in the buttons using my left hand, however, because the fingernails on my left hand are cut very short. (I play mandolin. I keep fingernails on my left hand short, to hold down the mandolin strings, and grow out the nails on my right hand for strumming.) Just wanted to give a heads up - if you have long fingernails it might prove difficult to press the buttons in all the way.
AUGUST 93, 2016 UPDATE: still loving my 'take anywhere stool.' Spend an entire afternoon at the beach with my husband in the shade of a beach canopy. He had his telescopic canvas chair (which is heavy, cumbersome, and is long/large even when folded up). I had my trusty Walkstool (which is lightweight, barely noticeable carried over my shoulder, and very compact). The stool performed perfectly, even in the shifting sand, and remained comfortable to sit on throughout the day. I loved that the net fabric dried so quickly when it got damp (yes, I went in the surf!). Because the seat is netting and breathable, the fabric never felt hot or uncomfortable even during the hottest part of the noon. I enjoyed myself so much and liked that I could easily carry it myself, without having to burden my dear hubby with having to carry seating for me, in addition to his own.
NOTE: I paid full price for my Walkstool Comfort 18-inch stool; I did not receive it free or at a discounted price in exchange for an evaluation. So, why did I take the time to write such a detailed review? Because, like you, I depend upon the comments and experiences of others when making an Amazon purchasing decision.
After deciding to buy a Walkstool Comfort, I had to decide on which size. The 45cm (Large, 18") is the same height as a kitchen chair. The 55cm (XL, 22") is the next one up and they get taller than that from there. I was also concerned about the minimum collapsed height since it will be packed in my motorcycle bags.
I am 6' tall. I went with the 55cm stool and glad I did. Collapsed it is 15" long and easily fits in the motorcycle's bags. Also being a little taller, it is easy to sit down and stand up from the Walkstool Comfort 55cm (22"). The 45cm is 2" more compact and if the 2" is critical for packing get the 45cm. If you are several inches shorter than 6' and its easy to get out of a kitchen chair without assist, get then consider the 45cm.
The Walkstool Comfort feels light in my hand when just walking around and holding it. I find several uses for it. Also the 55cm (22") has a weight load capacity of 495 lbs. The 45cm has a load capacity of 440 lbs. I don't think I will be testing the limits but it does feel very sturdy when sitting in it.
I've been blessed to go to San Diego Comic-Con the last several years by volunteering and have tried numerous portable seat products. First tried a rolling cart with a seat attached; ok but needed more strength. Then a portable short mesh chair with a carrying bag; did the job but was a bit heavy and cumbersome. This stool is the best one by far. It has it's own carrying bag, fits in my backpack, and is extremely lightweight.
Wanted a seat that would hold my weight and a heavy backpack. I believe this can hold a max 400lb but the suggested weight is around 350lb. They probably want to be sure people don't over weight it.
The price seemed a bit high compared to other stools but then I realized the combined cost of the 2 previous chairs equaled the cost of this one. Also, getting a well made chair that should last a long time and can handle my weight was of utmost importance. I wanted to avoid being flat on the ground after breaking a chair in front of so many people.
Having never used a 3-legged stool before, besides holding my weight the second biggest concerned was stability. After a few tries the easiest method was to position one foot against the bottom of a leg and then sit down. Was that a necessary step? Probably not, but it made me feel more confident that the stool wouldn't inadvertently slip out from under me or fold itself up as I set down. After doing this a few times I was popping up and down from that stool like a jack-in-the-box.
One drawback, which isn't a real con, the polls dig in your flesh just a little. I'm going to find a little padding to put on those points of contact and see what that does. After I set for a while I stopped noticing it as much so it may not be a real issue.
I'm not only in love with this thing, I'm taking it to work to show a fellow Comic-Con'er. Those long convention lines have met their match.
