I am tired of sitting cross legged on hard ground. Don't fold as easily as I once did. Also tired of dragging boat to cooking fire to sit in.

I have the tallest of this one from Lee valley and I love it. (I am 6' tall)

It packs very nicely on top of my 120 L dry bag.
the large one does not have the feet adapter for soft soils.

Check out this stool very compact w/backrest well worth the extra for the back support.

When ice fishing, I use a three-legged stool with a back like the one mentioned by Rockie. It allows me to sit in an erect position when fishing, and the back support is a major advantage of this kind of stool over a tripod stool with no back support.

But for camping, I prefer a Helinox style folding chair. See the chairs at https://www.rei.com/s/backpacking-chairs for examples. The Helinox chairs are obscenely expensive, but many other manufacturers make similar chairs which are less expensive. If you do a little internet searching, you can find examples of this style of chair at pretty reasonable prices. They are really comfortable to sit in, you can stand up out of them with no difficulty, they are at a good level for cooking, and they fold up quite compactly. I bring this kind of chair on unsupported whitewater kayak trips, where there is a limit to the volume of gear you can bring.
