Anybody have recommendations for a light, easy to carry folding chair for short hikes?

I bought a fishing stool for 8 euro a couple of years ago. Works great. Folds up, weighs nothing and is quite comfortable to sit on. They come in different styles of course. I have something similar to this (external link).

I can recommend the Walkstools. They are expensive, but excellent, light and pack very well. Plus they come in different heights. As already mentioned there is an attachment called the Walkstool Steady to stop the legs sinking in on soft ground. Personally I haven't bought one yet as the Walkstool has quite wide feet and I haven't experienced any difficulties with the legs sinking in. In addition, you can get spares such as replacement legs for these seats, and they take much more weight than most of these type. I've got the 65cm one, which I found perfect as it means you are not sitting too low.

I see a few recommendations for the Walkstool. A friend of mine has one and rates it very highly, I agree that it is well made but when I sit on it I think it is an instrument of torture - no exaggeration it hurts me just where I really don't want to be hurt! He (the owner) finds it absolutely fine and can sit comfortably on it for hours. It is an excellent piece of kit but TRY before you buy!

Personally I use this one:

Cheap and cheerful, comfy, doesn't sink too far unless the mud is very soft. It is not the lightest but far from the heaviest!

That one is very similar to the Dove hunting stool that somebody else recommended. I agree that the Walkstool looks a bit uncomfortable for the manly bits...

As I said - try it first. My friend finds it very comfortable and it is a quality item, unfortunately I don't!
See Codling Grinder (Blackadder series 1, end of Episode 6) - we are all built a little different.
