This cane seat is lightweight and easy to carry around, and also made pretty sturdily. Those are the good things. The less-than-good thing is that it is not very comfortable. Don't imagine you will be able to sit on this for long periods of time. This is a good seat to take short five minute rests on, not to sit on for the afternoon.
I ordered this cane for my wife because she was having abdominal surgery and thought it would be perfect to help with her mobility. The day the cane arrived, I unpacked it and was checking the stability of the item, when it broke! I weight 180 lbs, 70 lbs less than the max weight of 250. I would hate to imagine what could have happened to my wife had she been the one to sit on the seat.
