p.1 #1 · chair for use in a portable hide


Hello everyone,
i would like to know if someone uses or knows about a portable, lightweight chair which can be folded, to use it with my portable hide for wildlife photography.
I prefer to find something which is also comfortable, because i may seat for hours on that one..
Thanks a lot,
George

I'd grab any one of those chairs that folks use for concerts. I've seen many, I've got an LLBean one (a gift). They fold into practically nothing, and I think they are pretty comfy.

Here's a fancier version

I have a Walkstool, folds up quite small, weighs very little and is surprisingly comfortable although I would probably not spend all day on it.
The naturesscapes link above has it in the blinds section.

Thanks for your help guys.
Bill, the chair from llbean looks to be quite good, although no dimensions or weight is mentioned.

Martines i could not find something in your site, also, there are many other interesting things there.
I haven't looked amazon yet, i am searching it from google until now.

Lotuselite, i think a stool will be nice just for short periods as you said, for a day in a hide i will need a chair with support for my back. Thanks anyway.

Take a look at this chair. The seat turns in a complete circle to allow you to photograph from each window in your blind. A seat back is also available.

These are great. Keep them in my car for road trips, use in my portable blind etc etc.

These are insanely light, while amazingly comfortable and easy to set up:

They only have two feet, but they work quite well and take the cake on portability. Unlike the other options your butt is only a few inches off the ground. That might be an advantage or disadvantage depending upon the situation.

'leftcoastlefty', thanks for your opinion, this is a disadvantage for me...I prefer to sit a little higher..Thanks anyway.
'Hummingbird', this is great! That's what i was looking for! Thank you very much!
'Gumbygreen', your choice looks interesting..It's expensive, but it looks nice. I wonder how comfortable would be.
Thanks again guys.
