A Seat With a Story That Will Make You Smile

More than just a lightweight and easily packed seat cushion, Chipper™ is also a big step in sustainable manufacturing. Made entirely from reclaimed and remolded PE foam scraps from our sleeping pad production, we’re reducing our footprint and making a fun, unique, and extremely resilient product. The engineered contours provide an outsized feeling of suppleness and protect from cold surfaces. Chipper™ is an affordable, environmentally responsible and super-versatile companion for backpacking, gardening, travel, festivals, day trips, and sporting events.

By reclaiming foam remnants from our pad manufacturing, in the first year of production we are able to keep 8.8 tons of scrap foam out of the waste stream and 48 tons of carbon dioxide out of the air compared to using virgin materials. We picked just the right blend of reclaimed scraps to give Chipper™ excellent support and resilience. And utilizing the hexagonal nesting pattern from our Switchback™ pad, we were able to optimize for packed size and weight.

  • Versatile companion for camping, backpacking, gardening, travel, festivals, day trips, and sporting events. Includes removable loop for hanging, lashing, or staking in place.
  • Chipper closed-cell foam seat is made completely from 100% off-cut PE foam remnants from our sleeping pad manufacturing process.
  • Reprocessing our foam scraps not only reduces waste, it also changes the properties of the foam to make it even more comfortable and resilient as a seat.
  • No two Chipper™ pads are exactly alike! Each one has its own signature appearance thanks to the unique manufacturing process.
  • The hexagonal nesting pattern in the design of Chipper optimizes packed size and while offering greater thickness and comfort.
  • Includes removable loop for hanging, lashing, or staking in place.
  • Packaging is 100% recycled.
  • Protected by the NEMO Lifetime Warranty.

Chipper sit mat

Fantastic product. Light, compact and super comfortable. Fit's in the pack very well and love that it's made from repurposed material.

Great piece of kit

This is a really versatile foam seat. I recently used it on a multi-day hike in Tassie in all types of weather and surfaces and it stood up really well. It's very comfortable too. Unfortunately, the seat I ordered from OzBackCountry had a manufacturing defect. But John from OzBackCountry was incredibly responsive in acknowledging the problem and providing a refund. Even though I ended up buying the seat from another retailer, I've no hesitation in coming back to OzBackCountry for further purchases.

Thanks Prakhar! Sorry about the defect and sorry we couldn't supply a replacement! Supply has been tight. Glad to see you found another one, though!

Useful, Affordable, Environmentally Friendly.

I bought this as a gift. Great recycling story and I like the unique colour ways. Good dimensions but the weight of this product suggests that it is for use in the car or at home, maybe MTB touring, rather than ultralight backpacking and that’s what I’m into these days. There are other brands out there similarly priced, that are noticeably lighter. I can’t comment on longevity. I’d be happy though, if someone bought one of these for me.

Soft and keep your butt dry from wet ground

Use this foam seat on my hike when sitting down having lunch. Soft with somewhat massaging ribs lol
