abunda_amazon_reviews I have never wanted to give an item MORE than five stars until this one. I've been using my trusty Z Seat for over a year on longer, section-hikes on the Florida Trail and Appalachian Trail, now. I keep it strapped to the outside of my backpack where it is most easily accessed. I simply won't take a break, have lunch, etc. without breaking this bad boy out! Keeps my butt out of the dirt, damp, and cold. This keeps me both comfortable and cleaner. Even in camps with a bench or picnic table, this is SO much more comfortable. Works as a great "Welcome Mat" outside of the tent at night to help with crawling out in the middle of the night to go potty. I've used mine for a seat, a pillow, a backrest, and just a cleaner surface to put my stuff on. I'm not being superfluous when I say that the Z Seat is my BEST purchase and one of my MOST appreciated and useful pieces of backpacking gear.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 19, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Light, Compact, and INCREDIBLY Useful!

Within 1 trip I am already seeing some significant gouges and chunks of foam missing. At this rate I see this item as more of a disposable seat cushion, not likely to last more than 1 season MAX. Combine that fact with the $15 price point and you get 2 stars.
