Few things can tax a biped's patience (and feet) more than standing. GCI Outdoor, a company based in Higganum, Conn., offers the ultralight Packseat, which will come in handy whether you're waiting to board a bus in India or slogging through airport security around the holidays. This compact, tripod-style stool has collapsible legs, so you can fold it up and slip it into its slim (15-by-4-inch) travel bag. It measures 21 inches high, supports up to 300 pounds, and weighs 1.6 pounds.

For those wanting back support, GCI Outdoor also makes the Quick-E-Seat, which comes with a padded, adjustable backrest and is available in two heights: 16 or 20 inches. The Packseat sells for $19.50 and the Quick-E-Seat for $30 or $36 at L.L. Bean (800-441-5713, llbean.com). Or, go to gcioutdoor.com.
