Trail Bum Backpacking Stool

If you are in need of a multi-purpose camp stool check out the Trail-Bum by Trail Dogs. Those beautiful black straps with orange sewing came from our shop (the embroidery was done by a third party.

According to my wife this must be comfortable. Years ago I had an orange T-shirt that I would not give up. I was informed that the “orange thing” must be comfortable otherwise I would have sent it to the dump years ago. Since then by definition everything orange must be comfortable. I am sure that these stools must follow my wife’s decree.

I can attest that the straps are plenty strong. They are all heavyweight polypropylene. The two on the outside are 2″ width and the middle one is 3″. ¬†Sewing is all with Tex 90 polyester thread, in orange of course, which will provide great abrasion and UV resistance.

The manufacturer of this camping stool discontinued the product quite some time ago. No inventory of completed stools is available nor do we have any of the strap assemblies we made. We have looked in to making more straps but have concluded that we do not wish to be in the camp stool business and installing straps on a completed stool is quite impracticable.

      1. Rollie,

        I am in the same boat. Were these straps available anywhere, or able to be fabricated?


  1. Is there a way to get this stool?
    It’s a great idea but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. This is so much better than anything else on the market.

    1. The complete stool is no longer in production. We just made the straps and have approval from the stool manufacturer to sell strap kits. You will have to source the metal frame locally, many sporting goods stores carry them with a fabric seat. If you get the right one you can take it apart and install the straps. I will post more information on strap kits shortly.
