This was so great when I was recovering from hip replacement surgery. I could put plates and cups on the seat, and take care of myself at mealtime. On long walks, there was the seat to give me a place to rest for a while. This is easy to put together with no tools needed - very cool! I have since passed it on to a friend with a broken knee... The built in pouch is great when shopping - I never needed to carry a purse, I just put my stuff in the bag. If there is one drawback - it isn't easy to collapse, and doesn't get too flat, which makes it problematic when people are trying to give you a ride somewhere, and it's the walker that becomes hard to handle and get into the car. But, I still give it a five star rating.
