PICNICKING, CAMPING & OUTDOOR

The Amazing Disappearing Stool

Call it the collapse-a-seat, a portable place to park your carcass without having to tote a folding chair around. Measures 10” dia x 2-1/2” thick when collapsed, like a canister of film on its way to a movie theater. But give it a twist and pull it out like an accordion, and it opens and locks at 18” tall, or anywhere in between for tots. Great for camping, back yarding, fishing, gardening, museum-ing and cow-milking. Manufacturer says it holds big lads up to 330 pounds, but weighs in at a totable 2.5 lbs. Also has a little fabric carrying handle.

MYLAR WARMTH

They have the look of something designed for the space program. They're mylar, a paper-thin shiny metallic sheet, that comes in handy when your car breaks down in winter, or when you're separated from your climbing group on the slopes of Mt. McKinley. Barring that, they're also a perfect material for a do-it-yourself cold-climate Halloween costume-near impossible to rip by hand, but cut easily with scissors. There's no padding, so they wouldn't be too comfy on your bed, but they sure are warm. They both come folded about the size of a wallet. The Blanket is 52" x 82", the Sleeping Bag is 34" x 84".
