Crazy Creek Hex 2.0 Original Chair
As is true for most all forms of travel, the general rule is to carry the minimum of what you might need. Excess weight is carried at the cost of energy, comfort, and speed. Minimizing volume has its benefits, too.
Some travelers will go to extreme measures (and extreme costs) to travel as lightly as they can. While I'd just assume pedal with as little weight as possible, I'm also of the frame-of-mind that if I'm going to be living on my bike for a few months, I want to be comfortable. Plus, once you add food and water to your touring load, meticulous savings in gear ounces here-and-there are easily overshadowed. And so on our Patagonia trip, where I knew that seats (even those offered by a picnic table) would be far-and-few-between, carrying the extra weight and volume of a Crazy Creek chair was acceptable.
Measuring 16.5" X 4" inches when folded and adding 1 lb 5 ounces to my gear weight, carrying the Crazy Creek is definitely a crazy luxury. But it is well worth it! How nice to be able to sit down and lean back in a comfortable chair in the middle of nowhere. Both my traveling partners brought Crazy Creek Chairs on this trip (at my urging) and both used them all the time. We used them at lunch...at our mid-afternoon coffee breaks...in camp at night -- basically anytime we weren't on the bikes or standing up.
Sure, there are lighter chairs, as well as ones with legs that will get you off the ground. But the Crazy Creek's versatility just makes more sense. For one, you can set up the Crazy Creek on any surface -- the ground, a log, a rock. Secondly, by disconnecting the side straps and flattening out the Crazy Creek, you can use the chair as a mat under your sleeping bag. Although it wouldn't be a full-length mat, it still provides a bit of padding and a minimal thermal barrier.
Should you decide to take a Crazy Creek with you on a bike tour or a backpacking trip, I suggest attaching the chair to the exterior of your pack so that it is easy to get to. The easier the access, the more it will be utilized.

I sent my Original Hex 2 chair back to Crazy Creek for repair of a broken stay in back and instead they promptly replaced it with a brand new one. Awesome Customer Service and quick turnaround. Crazy Creek fan for life.
