Ultralight Seat for Walking and Hiking Poles

Sometimes you just need to take a load off.

With the TALO Freedom Seat a good rest is just seconds away and when rested, seconds to continue on your journey.

Inspired through Necessity


Designed from Experience

I was injured but wanted to attend a standing room only event.  Needing a walking aid, I didn't want to carry a chair or rely on my friends to carry one for me.  Three days before the event, the solution on how to safely sit on sticks came to me in my sleep.  I got up to write it down, instead two hours later at 4 AM, I was sitting in the first TALO Freedom Seat.

Not knowing where the next available and dry place might be, planning long walks is challenging.  Now with a TALO Freedom Seat and either a strong pair of trekking poles or a trusted hiking stick, a good place to rest is only seconds away.

Using the TALO Freedom Seat can alleviate over 75% of a person's body weight from their lower extremities (knees, feet, hips) and also provides significant relief in the lower back region.

Whether walking, hiking, around the campfire, at an outdoor concert or just standing in line, when you need to take a load off,  reach for the pocket size, ultralight TALO Freedom Seat.

Strength Testing

With the help of our good friend Chris Merrit of BSP, we loaded the seat up to see how it would perform.  The first test is with our adjustable strap ladder lock buckle.  The second test is with a fixed system  (no adjustable strap buckle).

In addition, our engineer friend Jamie inspected the construction of the seat and said, "You could probably tow a truck with this".  So to test the webbing, fabric and stitching , we used a pair of fixed loop anchors  and put the system between a couple of full size 4x4 trucks and pulled.

Chris Merrit validates the TALO Freedom Seat anchor after loading 508 pounds of olympic weights into the seat.
