Hiking allows you to bring along whatever you can carry on your back. For those who like to stop and enjoy nature, it helps to have a place to sit that is not on the ground. Carrying a chair is not exactly ideal, but taking a lightweight portable chair may be. Some easily attach to your pack, while others are light enough you won't mind carrying them if need be. The best part is that you do not have to sacrifice comfort for the weight.
