This thing is seriously ultralight and ultra compact. If you're like me and leave your stool behind on longer treks or quick ground blind set ups on turkeys, you should consider the BTR. I'm 6'3", 203lbs, and the 17" BTR is comfortable and sturdy. It's worth mentioning the warning that the load capacity can only be guaranteed on flat surfaces and when the weight is evenly distributed across all three legs. As well, the bearing surface of the feet is slightly bigger than a quarter (a little over 1in/sq). Testing in my rain dampened yard seems fine, however, I expect to eventually deal with some sinking when afield as well as rarely finding flat ground. Shims under the feet to level the stool and increase the weight bearing surface should mitigate this. I still give the stool 5 stars considering it's insanely light and compact. The BTR is a perfect compromise between all day comfort and portability. I'm looking forward to putting this new piece of gear to use!
