Our family has 4 of these stools. We use them for everything from camping, to gardening, to a footrests. Even put a small board on the top and use it as a table. They are light weight and the shoulder strap makes them very easy to carry around. The zipper storage pouch has been nice. These stools have been particularly helpful for my mom who has a bad knee. She can't stand for long so she takes this stool with her. It has been great! They can get a little ruff on the back side if you are sitting on it for an extended amount of time, we just use a small cushion and its fine. Only critique, I wish there was a solid black option in addition to camouflaging.
