Product Highlights
  • 22" (55cm) Extended Seat Height

  • Made in Sweden

Walkstool is a unique company making an even more unique and extremely useful product. The Walkstool Comfort 55 XL is born of fine Swedish engineering and provides a portable posterior platform - in other words, a seat for all occasions. Whereas a folding chair or stool is nothing new, this Walkstool's clever design makes it stand out from the rest. The two primary issues Walkstool's designers focused on were compact size and load strength and the final product reflects their careful engineering and dedication.

The primary benefit of the Walkstool is the prevention of back strain or fatigue while keeping a person elevated to a comfortable height. This is useful for sports, event, and press photographers who spend many hours on their feet, squatting or on their knees. It is also good for campers and other outdoor enthusiasts or simply anyone who needs a seat in a location where a comfortable chair may be hard to come by.

The Walkstool Comfort line features lightweight and ultra-portable stools with two height positions depending on whether the telescoping legs are extended or not. Transportation of these sub-two lbs stools is a breeze, as it collapses into a compact form that can be easily carried in a camera bag, backpack, or tool bag to be taken just about anywhere. The Comfort line improves on the Basic line with a larger seat, different size seat mesh material, and larger rubber feet to prevent the stool legs from getting stuck in the mud.

Will hold up to 495 lbs
When folded, it is not much larger than a small tripod

      I have back and knee problems that make standing and walking long distances very difficult. We planned a trip to NYC for Thanksgiving. I was not looking forward to this trip, because I feared that I would not be able to participate in many of the planned activities such as watching the famous Macy's parade and long hours of shopping. A week before my trip, I was looking for something on-line that might help and found this stool. After reading all the positive reviews I thought it might just work. Boy was I ever glad I made this purchase! It is extremely lightweight to carry. I carried it like a backpack and at a moment's notice could set it up and take a breather. I was able to watch the parade and I didn't take up any more space than if I was standing! I had so many people interested in my stool. I was constantly showing it off!! It took up very little space in my suitcase and I could use it anywhere. I will never take another vacation without it!!! It's extremely comfortable and very sturdy feeling. I never felt unstable sitting on it. I loved how compact the stool was when not in use. I honestly can't think of anything negative about this walkstool. I would highly recommend this stool to anyone who has trouble standing or walking! I even had a police officer tell me it was the best idea she had ever seen when you needed a quick place to sit and seating was hard to find. Love, Love, Love!!!! this stool.

      Used for birdwatching, in tropical rainforest, where patience is required. This fits the bill as it's light and rather comfortable to sit on.
      A couple of caveats to be noted, feels a bit flimsy at first, extend the legs slowly or they might come out altogether. When setting it up on sloping ground, the chair can be a bit unstable (it's a rather small tripod), so, be aware of your centre of gravity and make sure you don't go tumbling down the hill.

          I have had knee and hip surgeries so when shooting games my legs get tired fast. This light weight seat has help tremendously. It is so light that I just tie it to my camera bag and bring to all the games when I get tired I open it up and relax for a few minutes.

                I bought this stool to enable me to get off my feet during long days of touring on vacation with a bad knee. It opens and sets up and likewise closes quickly and easily and was extremely useful even for sitting down just for a few minutes. I could whip it out on a trail or in a museum or shop, on a long line, and even in the midst of a crowd, to give my knees a rest. For this purpose, the 55 X-Large size was perfect (I am 5'7"), high enough to get up from easily but small enough to pack and carry around. It is very lightweight and comes with its own carrier, which has a shoulder strap. Without this stool I couldn't have done nearly as much on this trip. I highly recommend it.

                  Comments about Walkstool Comfort 55 X-Large Folding Stool:

                  We have only used this a few times, but really like it. It is solid, feels very sturdy, and even my 80+ year old Mom can easily carry it on her shoulder. Some others I looked at had very thin legs and I was afraid it would collapse. This is well-built. The picture of the Volvo sitting on 7 of them helped sell me. My plan was to buy this for an upcoming trip, but I think we both will use it before and after the trip. I plan to keep it in the car.

                  I was unsure whether to buy the 18" or 22" inch for her because she is only 5'5". I bought the 22 inch and am very glad I did. She loves it. Her knees aren't the greatest and I think if she had the 18", it would have been hard for her to get up from it. I'm almost 6' tall and I like this height too. Neither of us are petite and so we like that the seat is generous!

                  Right now, we will share, but we both like it so much, I might need to buy my own.

                  If you find standing for long periods are interfering with get that image, THIS is the solution. Made popular by sports photographers, I now know why they like them so much. Very rugged, very well made and relatively light. I goes everywhere I do. At my age (60), it's the difference in whether I get out to shoot or not since my ankles are not what they used to be. Perfect when paired with a monopod for shooting. I love it!!!

                    I got this to take on a photo workshop where we will spend a fair amount of time taking landscape shots on a tripod (not moving around all the time.) My back is most troublesome when I stand for a long time so this seems to be an excellent solution - good height, sturdy and will likely work well on site. Love that it folds compactly almost to size of my tripod and is light weight.

                              I got this because the shorter version was way too short. Want to take it to go hiking since I have joint problems and can't stand for tool long but still want to get out with the dogs.

                              I have problems with it not wanting to stay open while I try to sit down. I wish there was a way to lock it open! I'm really upset because this seems like such a SIMPLE thing to add on to this stool and then it really would be perfect.

                                Sorry I did not know of this item years ago. Saw an ad for it in the British edition of Digital Photo magazine, have never seen an ad in an American magazine. Ordered on for my photographer brother who has two knee replacements, and when I tried it out, immediately ordered one for myself. If you are anywhere without seating it is indispensable. It is at 22" very comfortable, and with my monopod allows for great shots. I never leave for a shoot without it. In fact, I usually do not go on any outing without it.

                                            Best stool I've found and I've tried several. Can carry on a shoulder with the included bag or tied to a belt loop without the bag. Very light, when you're tired just sit a spell! Or set your tripod lower and sit behind it waiting for that perfect light or event.

                                            I have been looking for a lightweight stool to take with me when I photograph. This stool is made for real size people. The seat is comfortable. I am 5'7 and the height is just right. When folded up, it straps easily to my camera bag. The feet sit well on the ground.

                                                Seat is uncomfortable and legs are kind of cheesy. They do not telescope smoothly - in fact they make an annoying scraping sound. I'm bringing mine back.

                                                Used for birdwatching, in tropical rainforest, where patience is required. This fits the bill as it's light and rather comfortable to sit on.
                                                A couple of caveats to be noted, feels a bit flimsy at first, extend the legs slowly or they might come out altogether. When setting it up on sloping ground, the chair can be a bit unstable (it's a rather small tripod), so, be aware of your centre of gravity and make sure you don't go tumbling down the hill.
