Solid, Functional Chair Kit
My first Trekker Chair Kit is close to twenty-years old; it is a tad faded, but just as usable as the day I got it. My new (second) chair kit looks and performs a lot like the old one, which is to say it is well-made and highly functional.

Very Comfortable But A Little Fiddly
Okay--it is a good product but not a great product. Here's the good: it's reasonably lightweight enough for backpacking (but not for ultralight fanatics). And, once it is setup, it IS comfortable and easily adjustable for your body weight and how upright or leaned-back you want to sit. Note that this does NOT have legs--you are basically sitting on a leg-less chair. Here's how it works and why it's also not so great. The product is completely unpadded. That's why it's so lightweight. The padding comes from using YOUR not-included self-inflating sleeping pad. You could also use a foam pad like a Ridgerest Classic. To set it up, you fold over 1/3 the length of the sleeping pad and insert this double-thick part in the bottom of the chair, and then insert the remaining single-thick 1/3 of the pad into the chair back. You CAN'T do this if the pad is fully inflated. You're best off letting it partially inflate, leaving the air valve open, inserting the pad into the chair, then closing the air valve. Then, you sit down and adjust the strap lengths until comfortable. So, some "assembly" required to setup. But here's the real issue: you need that pad to sleep on! So, now it's time to sleep, and you have to let the straps out, wrestle out the bottom 2/3 of the pad from the chair, get the pad fully inflated, and then you're good to sleep. But THEN, the next day, if you want to use the chair, you need to "reassemble" it, etc., repeat each day. One caveat: if you don't care about having any padding under your butt, you can use the chair without any padding at all in which case this is quite a fantastic product, right? :-) The construction seems quite solid and the chair is available for 20" and 25" inch self-inflating sleeping pads. My sleeping pad is standard length but it will work with any length pad.

Compact and Comfortable
I have my Therm-a-Rest - Trekker Chair Kit for a number of years now. It comes with me on all my camping trips but especially on my sea kayaking camping trips. The fact that it packs down so compact means it takes up little room in my sea kayak but still delivers great comfort with my Therm-a-Rest mattress, not to mention the fact that it's a well thought out design and hard wearing gear. Great for sitting down and enjoying the sea views in the evenings.
