    I don't carry a chair very often but when I do it's the Chair Zero. If you're in an area that has flat rocks such as slate, they're great for putting under the feet for support.

    Hikermiker's definition is good. On the question of clothing, stuff that I normally don't wear once I'm warmed up and grooving down the trail counts as base weight.
