Do you move around a lot on any given day? Have you ever been somewhere where you had to stand in line for a long time? Who hasn’t, right? If you answered yes to either of our first two questions, you’ll love our SitPack 2.0 review.

This is one of those products you may not even know you need, but by the time you reach the end of the review, we’re betting you’ll want one. If you’re intrigued, keep reading, and we’ll tell you all about it!

Key Features of the SitPack Compact Foldable Seat

The Sitpack 2.0 is not much to look at. It’s a stick with a rubberized foot and a modestly-sized seat. The good news is that it’s unobtrusive and blends into the background pretty easily, which is why we rated it rather high in terms of aesthetic flexibility. It’s not good-looking; it’s just practically invisible, which means it will easily fit in almost anywhere.

Specifications

As to basic stats, there’s not much to talk about, but here are a few:

  • Product Dimensions: 7.1” x 2.8” x 2.7”
  • Total Weight: 1.23 pounds
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 220 pounds
  • Seat Width: 12”

That’s about it for statistics, but as you can see, they’re rather impressive. This is truly an ultra-lightweight, amazingly portable, go-anywhere standing stool.

In a pinch, you can slip it into your purse, backpack, or even an oversized pocket.

If you have a very active job that requires you to move about constantly, but you’d still like to have a convenient perch, you can bring this handy little stool with you and set it up as needed.

Even better, although it’s at home in most office environments, it’s also rugged and durable enough to be used outdoors. Take it with you on your next camping trip or if you take your kids to Disney and don’t want to stand around in the long lines. Anywhere there’s a long line, there’s a need for the SitPack stool!

Adjustability and Comfort

The SitPack Foldable seat has only one adjustment feature. The stool stem telescopes out from its compact position, and you can adjust the total length as much or as little as you want or need. Once it’s as long as you need it to be, simply twist it to lock it into position, expand the seat, and your perch is ready to use.

Comfort-wise, it’s about what you’d expect, given that it is an unconventional seating. It’s better than standing, but in no way could sitting on this stool for anything other than short, sporadic periods be considered comfortable. That’s not the point, though. The point is, if your feet and legs are tired and need a break because you’ve been on your feet all day, and there’s nowhere to sit, you can solve that problem and get a much-needed rest. In that context, this little gem of a standing stool is pure awesome.

Nothing to Assemble, But…

It probably won’t come as a surprise, but if you buy a SitPack Compact Foldable Seat, there’s absolutely nothing to assemble. You will have to un-collapse it and lock it into position any time you want to use it, but that operation takes seconds and isn’t complicated in the least.

Pros and Cons of the SitPack 2.0

Sooner or later, everybody will find themselves where they wish they had one.

Lines exist, and we all wind up in them, often for far longer than we’d care to. But long lines and wait times are only the tip of the iceberg. When you stop to think about it, there are probably at least three or four times a day, and perhaps more than a dozen times every week when you find yourself in a situation where this kind of ultra-portable standing stool would come in handy or at the very least provide some welcome relief.

When was the last time you were at WalMart nearest you? You know, the one with a hundred checkout lanes and two cashiers working? That’s a recipe for long lines and notoriously long wait times to check out. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a handy perch to relax on when the line wasn’t moving? If you think so, you’re not alone!

SitPack 2.0 Review Conclusion

Let’s face it—sometimes, there’s just no chair available, or using a chair would be impractical (e.g., standing in line at checkout). That doesn’t mean you can’t sit for a few minutes and give your feet and legs a break.

Think back to last year. How many times have you had sore feet or legs while standing in line and found yourself looking around to see if there was somewhere you could take a load off, even for just a few minutes? It’s almost certain to have happened more than a few times, right?

With the SitPack stool in your pocket, it will never happen again.

In our SitPack 2.0 review, we say that it’s not a must-have product by any means, but it is a very low-priced, nice-to-have product that solves a very real and prevalent problem.

If you weigh 220 pounds or less and have waited in line or been on your feet for extended periods, we recommend this handy little stool. You probably won’t love it, but you’ll still wonder how you got along without it.
