If your dad loves the great outdoors, is always on the move or spends endless hours watching your rugby, football or netball matches, he can take a much deserved rest with the Sitpack foldable seat! Sitpack is a high-adjustable foldable seat, which, when folded, looks like a small, inconspicuous cylinder the size of a beer can. The real magic of Sitpack happens when you unfold the cylinder revealing a 13 inch wide seat, pull out the 34.25 inch telescopic leg which can be adjusted to your height and your seat awaits, letting you stay relaxed leaning in at eye level with your friends!

 

 

Perfect to pop into his bag and pull out when a much needed break is required. No more unwieldy fold up chairs to haul around, which blow away and are inclined to collapse quite readily! Sitpack is also perfect to take on holiday, for family camping trips and for the more adventurous dads to take the weight off his feet at festivals.
