Are you underwhelmed and disappointed in the folding and stacking chair options you’re finding available?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, then our review of the Triple Tree folding stool might be of great interest to you.
We’ll be quick to admit that this type of seating is not for everyone. It’s a niche product, but a very good one. For the right user, this could be the perfect alternative to the same old, same old boring folding or stacking chair.
In the sections that follow, we’ll tell you all about it. By the time you reach the end of this review, we think you’ll agree; even if you opt to go in some other direction, these sturdy little stools are pretty awesome and well worth taking a closer look at. Let’s do that, starting now.
An Overview of the Triple Tree Portable Folding Stool
Before we talk about particulars, let’s begin by taking a look at the core stats that define the Triple Tree folding stool. Here they are:
For such a lightweight little thing, it supports a truly impressive amount of user weight. It even collapses down to an incredibly compact size, which makes storage a simple option indeed. Granted, this stool isn’t going to win any beauty contests. Still, its green paint job and matching seat strapping aren’t unattractive, merely unobtrusive.
Technically, this rugged little stool is designed with campers in mind, but the presence of the rubberized feet makes it a good fit for indoor use too. Also, you won’t have to worry about it scratching your flooring, making them incredibly versatile and every bit as useful as a standard folding chair. In fact, these stools are arguably even more useful as it’s usually inconvenient to lug folding chairs off to a campsite. The Triple Tree is even big enough to be used as an impromptu luggage stand, making it perfect for busy travelers too.
Adjustability and Comfort
There’s not much to talk about here. Nothing about the Triple Tree Portable folding stool is adjustable. Although the high-density nylon webbing is breathable and comfortable, this is not the kind of seating you want to find yourself in for the better part of a day.
No Assembly Required
Like the section above, there’s not much to talk about here. The stool comes fully assembled and ready to use. Just take it out of the box, unfold it, and have a seat. It’s that simple.
Pros and Cons of Triple Tree Folding Stool

In addition to that, although Triple Tree isn’t a huge brand with a globe-spanning presence, this stool does feature a lifetime warranty. So if you ever have a problem with it, the company will take care of the issue.
Granted, you may have to jump through a few more hoops than you would when dealing with a big national brand, but the company does stand behind their products, and that’s a very good thing.
There aren’t really any negatives associated with the Triple Tree, but you will need to ask yourself what product you’ll be better served by: This or a standard folding chair. Depending on who you are, what kind of lifestyle you lead, and what your specific needs are, you may conclude that this is the better option for you.
At least as often, though, when you evaluate this little stool against folding chair options, you’ll reach the opposite conclusion and head in the direction of a folding chair after all. There are no ‘right’ answers here, beyond which product best meets your needs.
Triple Tree Folding Stool Review Conclusion
