Product Updates


We listen to our customers and representatives and use their feedback to continuously improve our products. On the 5th version of the BTR Stool we’ve upgraded a few of the components to increase durability and overall strength.

product updates


We have changed the alloy and manufacturing processes of some of the components to improve their physical properties and extend the life of our products, while still maintaining a weight under 500g on all sizes.
The lower tubes of the legs have been updated to use Aluminum 6061 and the wall thickness has been increased.

The center piece is now forged to increase its strength and durability.

I’ve packed it in a dry bag on long-mileage paddle days, strapped it to my bike for a much-needed resting perch on an 80-mile gravel ride, and more. It is always worth carrying, and sometimes I forget it’s even in my pack.

Gear Junkie

Minimalism and comfort combine in Hillsound's BTR, a camping stool that packs down to a water bottle's size. The genius of the BTR — short for "Better Than a Rock" — is in its telescoping legs and their integrated PhantomLock technology, which hold fast while you are seated but disengage when it's time to pack it all up.
