Just purchase an insulate pad used under sleeping bags. They are closed cell foam, so they don't soak in moisture. They aren't self-inflating, so you don't have to worry about an air leak.I just cut a piece large enough to sit on, fold it, and stick it in your pocket. They are very light.They are only $10 bucks, sometimes less.db

This one is ok. It "folds" but not real well. The legs are independently adjustable tall/short for uneven ground and it's comfortable enough. I got it for $15 at Sportsman's Wherehouse. Perfect for a short hike to a stand in vegitation.UT15ss.jpg

Or, if you like to sit directly on the ground, REI carries neat foam-cell blow-up (by mouth) seats made by Cascade Designs in Seattle under the brand name Thermarest (#1505585). Lifetime warranty and easy to roll up for packing. Measures 12 x 15 inches. Or.....WalMart used to carry a round "pillow" gizmo about 15 inches diameter, filled with some type of styrofoam. Cost was about $5. Feather light. Kept my butt warm sitting in the snow. It was camoflaged, but could not be rolled up. I don't know if they still offer the item.

Yeah, the Walmart pillows are still available for $5, I just bought one two weeks ago.

Here is what I use if I don't have to pack it too far. I don't usually use it for coyote hunting but it makes an excellent seat for shooting with a bipod. It's just one of those low slung lawn chairs. Only sits a few inches off the ground.post-38-1163009805_thumb.jpgpost-38-1163009829_thumb.jpgpost-38-1163009854_thumb.jpg

I also have one of those seats. I think Wal-Mart carries them; if not, Cabela's definitely carries them. Problem is, give me anything that is too comfortable and I fall asleep.

This one all the way! Extremely comfortable with a detatchable backpack. And it supports your back. I don't know what else could take the place of it. I like having the backpack when you need to take off layers of clothing. Here is a direct link... Northeast Products105-0589_IMG-1.jpg

That gizmo Walt uses the wife got at Wal-Mart maybe 4 years ago for 8 dollars. I haven't seen them for the last year there but it is also good in the snow and keeps the derriere warm. It is air and foam insulated and you can adjust the air for comfort and has an elastic belt with snap. I have to go to stuff-mart today to get a tire fixed so I will look and ask about them for you......Walt And it is camo.

You can sometimes find the closed cell foam pads at Walmart, Target etc. in the gardening dept. People use them to kneel on I guess while tending the garden. They don't have a backrest but they make a pretty decent seat. I picked up a couple at Walmart a few years ago for like a few bucks each, don't know why it was camo though.d91d0265.jpg
