New hiking stick saves space and weight for backpackers!

There is a new hiking stick being sold on ebay. It is called the "stikstool". If you are a backpacker you need to try one. It is a hiking stick that breaks down to assemble into a tripod stool without using any tools. I always hated carrying the extra weight of a seat or chair on backpacking trips. I have broken two of the flimsy backpacking stools and never liked the metal rods poking the fabric of my backpack. This stool is very strong and sturdy. The stick is sturdy as well. It is 20 times stronger than most of the expensive sticks out there. Hats off to you Stikstool, you are a great idea that saves space and weight.
