We used these at a 4th of July picnic and they were perfect. They are light weight, easy to carry, simple to set up and very comfortable (even for those of us with wide posteriors!) Everyone at the picnic wanted to try them and many asked where we had gotten them. One woman who has back issues said she was going to get them for watching her kids' games (to use as a stadium seat) and others thought they would be great for the beach or camping. Tonight we will try them at a concert in a park and I'm sure they will again be perfect! Very happy with my purchase!
