Our Analysis

The NeoAir Jembe Seat Kit turns any NeoAir mattress into an 18-inch camp stool. A durable 200-denier ripstop nylon base protects your pad while the compression straps create a firm and supportive sit surface.

The Jembe Seat is more comfortable than the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Pump Sack, which can double as a seat. It's lighter and less comfortable than seats with back support, though. For cushion on your bottom and back we suggest the Therm-a-Rest Compack Chair. If weight is a concern, and you camp in winter, we recommend the NeoAir Pump Sack, because it will both inflate your pad and be used as a seat.
