How It Works

The Sitpack adjusts to any height and supports up to 286 pounds. To use it, just unfold it, set it to the right height, and you instantly have the perfect seat. When you're finished, just fold it back up and it collapses into the size of a soda can.

At a mere 1.3 pounds, the Sitpack is light enough to bring with you everywhere. Most importantly, it's super comfortable, even if you're sitting on it for long periods of time. The Sitpack is made of sturdy, reinforced polycarbonate so you don't have to worry about it breaking or falling down when you're sitting on it. It also has a rubber foot clamp on the bottom so it won't slip around – even if you're on uneven dirt or a moving bus.

Where It Works

The Sitpack is great for all kinds of seat-free situations: attending an all-day music festival, waiting in line for the latest iPhone, watching the kids play soccer, marathon hunting and fishing sessions, or taking a break from the wilds of the Pacific Crest Trail. As long as you're on some kind of dry land, the Sitpack is the perfect seat.

The Sitpack is also great for the office. You can adjust it to work with a standing desk – something an ordinary office chair can't do. Whether you spend all of your day standing or you like to constantly alternate between sitting and standing, the Sitpack is a helpful part of your standing desk regimen.

The Sitpack also functions as a cane or a crutch if you want to remain standing but lean some of your weight against something. It's perfect for traveling around the office to stretch your legs or perching by a co-worker's desk to look at something on their computer.

Are Normal Chairs Bad For Your Health?

In order to have a proper discussion about sitting, we need to face an inconvenient truth: sitting in an ordinary chair is terrible for your health

When you sit down, electrical activity in your legs completely shuts off. Your body only burns one calorie per minute and it breaks down 90 percent less fat. And after two hours of sitting, your good cholesterol levels drop 20 percent. It's no wonder that scientists are saying that sitting is the new smoking.

Fortunately, the Sitpack prevents these horrific problems. It keeps your legs active so your body doesn't completely shut down, but still gives you a much-needed break from standing. It also helps with back and knee problems by keeping your spine and pelvis in the proper position and reducing chronic pain. If you care about your long-term health, then this is the chair that you should be using.

The Sitpack 2.0 Compact Collapsible Seat normally costs $65, but you can get it now for just $39.95, a savings of 38 percent.
