Great for Cold Weather Sitting

    Comments about THERM-A-REST Z-Seat:

    This is a great item to bring along for cold, wet or winter sitting. It effectively insulates against cold rocks or snow that would otherwise suck body heat right out. It's very light and compact, and easy to stuff in an external bottle pocket and secure with a compression strap. Because it folds, rather than rolls, the sitting side stays clean and dry. I'm puzzled, though, by the reflective plastic on the new model: Which is the preferred sitting side?

    My only complaint is the shipping. The total weight of the manufacturer's plastic sleeve and the EMS paperwork was 2.5 ounces (the Z seat alone weighs the specified 2 ounces). It cost $6.99 to ship in an oversized cardboard box that weighed 11.7 ounces with the included packing material. Surely a padded or tyvek envelope and about a dollar of postage would have done the job more cheaply and with less packing waste.

    Light weight, good pillow

    By SwampMom

    from Ohio

    Comments about THERM-A-REST Z-Seat:

    This pad is very light weight and reasonably comfortable. It easily straps on the outside of either exterior or interior frame packs. However, most of the time I just sat on the ground and got dirty. Folded, the pad made a decent pillow. I used it that way much more than as a seat.

    If you find yourself wanting a light weight seat, this is a good option, but I'll be leaving it home most of the time because I didn't use it enough to justify carrying it.
