Even though you decided on the tripod chair, I thought I'd add my 2 cents for others. I had a tripod chair that had legs that broke apart in half, but were held together by an elastic cord so they didn't come completely apart. The chair would then fit inside a pouch no more than 4" in diameter and maybe 10" long. The pouch had a clip that would attach to a belt loop, pack, etc. It was my favorite chair to carry while hunting on those duck trips you may move from small pond to small pond, roving an area finding various dove spots, still hunting for deer, flyfishing for trout, and even ice fishing. Anytime you were doing a lot of walking, but wanted to sit for a while it was perfect. Extremely light and easy to carry and comfortable enough to sit on for a while. Lost it on bowhunting opener/dove trip last year and will replace it soon. Would be a great backpacking chair for those who don't like to or are just too uncomfortable to sit on the ground or where the terrain doesn't supply the rocks or down trees for places to rest.
