SitLight Camp Seat

This sit pad doubles as a back panel padding for our packs and an ultralight camp chair. Available in 3 sizes.

Gear Notes

Some of us prefer to sleep on a pad that does not fit into the pad holder of a Gossamer Gear backpack. With that in mind we now offer the SitLight ultralight camp seat. Designed specifically to be used in the pad pocket of any of our overnight backpacking backpacks. This multi-use featherlight pad will give structure to your pack, cushion your back and allow some air to circulate between you and the pack while keeping the pack body close to you. The SitLight can also be used to sit on in camp or during breaks, to lengthen your existing sleep pad or as a base for your pillow.

The foam is amazingly light and strong for its density. The pads are tough, flexible and resilient, and exhibit good UV stability. As a closed-cell foam they will not absorb water.
