The ALPS Mountaineering Tri-Leg Stool provides a comfortable place to park your bum and packs up small for on-the-go convenience. This simple yet useful design features powder-coated steel legs and a rugged 600D polyester seat. Don't worry about eating 20 pounds of chili for dinner; the Tri-Leg has a reinforcing extra center support system that helps hold up to 250 pounds.

Worth It

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great bang for the buck. Practical for car camping, not so much for backpacking. Great to have extra for family and friends who "forget" or don't have chairs of their own.

Works Great

    I have used this chair on several occasions. If you have a little extra room on your pack, it beats using the bear canister as a chair during your entire backpacking trip. Packs light and supportive during sitting, low enough to cook on the ground or lowering your head in and out of the tent enclosure. Sometimes the support strap become entangled on the legs during opening and requires a moment to get it working properly. Overall great product and glad I have it available.

    July 31, 2018 Multi-Purpose and Handy!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is so convenient to use and has so many ways it could come in handy. I personally use it to sit on and take my shoes off outside of my tent. Also can be used to set stuff on like a side table when sitting around the campfire. Possibilities are endless though!


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These little stools are great for backpacking. I keep a couple in my vehicle just in case as well.

    An $8 seat for the masses

      - relatively compact for car camping
      - stout metal leg construction
      - included stuff sack for storage/transport
      - comfortable seating around the fire
      - unobtrusive, well thought design

      - economy engineering in materials and assembly
      - can be tippy when used by the squirrely 8-and-under crowd
      - a bit bulkier, and heavier when packed than you might expect

      Compact and Cheap

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I was expecting it to be not sturdy and not comfortable but this was a good product for how little you have to pay. I ended up getting four of them because they are light weight and we are always needing something for the summer time. This will be great to have instead of the huge chairs we currently lug around.

      Comfortable and useful

        I e used other stools similar to this one before. I especially like them for hunting and using around a campfire. It sits quite well and seems very well made. I like the strap it has attached.

        Great value

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Lightweight, comfortable for what it is. I’m 220lbs and dont feel unstable on it. Would have given 5 stars if the seat were slightly larger surface. Smaller folks probably wouldnt feel the same as me. Overall, great value

        Your friend forgot their chair

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The perfect stool to accompany your camping chairs. It's always nice to have the additional stool for your friend who forgot their camping chair, or if you just want to mix it up, or offer someone else the cushy camping chair while you get closer to the fire to perfectly toast your smore. It also puts you in a great position to play some tunes on your ukulele or guitar or other stringed instrument of your choosing.

        Very light and super sturdy. Awesome little stool to bring camping or to use around the house for DIY. Highly recommend.

        the perfect van camping accessory

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Best van accessory ever!! On a recent outing I wanted to put my feet up after a big hike--but I was so exhausted that I wasn't willing to deal with the effort it takes to pull out my upholstery-covered potty/footrest. I got this idea! It just arrived and I can already see that it could be my favorite accessory ever!! Not only does it fit my feet perfectly, it has movement and allows me to shift and adjust to lots of positions. Plus it's perfect for sitting in the middle of the space when I want to work the kitchen with the top down. And all the obvious uses--I now have two extra seats for those moments when I need them. And it folds into the size of an umbrella and stores under either front seat. Perfect!!

        Cheap but good enough

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This little stool can really do the job. It tends to rip were the legs fit into the fabric, but this usually doesn't happen for a year or two of solid use. great for a cheap backpacking stool.

        Great for what I'm looking for

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Love to take this on camping trips and short hikes. Has served its purpose as an affordable, convenient chair that I can always rely on. Will buy again.


        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I took it with me while backpacking. Wouldn't do it again, not worth carrying the weight. It served it's purpose but after trekking I prefer using something to rest my back. Might be better used while car camping. Will take it next time I go and try it out.

        Compact -- Serves the purpose

          Throw this in your vehicle and have a seat whenever you need it. Compact, convenient and affordable.

          great value!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          this is a sturdy and well made product, and you can't beat the price! perfect for car camping or an overnight trip, or even if you need an extra seat in your living room for the big game.

          So convenient at the crag

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          This little chair was so affordable it was hard to pass up. Super convenient at the crag and the campfire too. Plus it packs up easy and straps to my pack nicely.

          7 bucks

            Use it to stick whiskey

            Quality product

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            Material is thick and seems stout. I use it for camping and disc golf and i have no cpmplaints. lightweight, durable, comfortable and stylish.

            At its widest its about 3 1/2 inches
