Thermarests's Z Seat Sol is a durable, superlight closed-cell camping seat which features a heat reflective ThermaCapture coating on one side to help keep your bottom warm. 

Thermarest says:

With its accordion-style design and closed-cell foam construction, the Z Seat camping seat is an ounce-counter's solution to on-the-spot comfort. It's virtually indestructible and superlight, making it ideal for backpacking, ski touring and relaxing on rough terrain. This SOL version is our warmth-boosting, reflective ThermaCapture™ surface treatment, there’s hardly a place that the added comfort isn’t worth it.

The Therm-a-Rest Z Seat SOL is basically a mini version of the popular Z Lite SOL mattress. The proprietary foams are softer on top for extra comfort and denser on the bottom for extra durability. Ideal if you think you're going to be encountering rough terrain as it's practically indestructible. And at under 60g it's not going to add a lot of weight for that extra little bit of comfort.

The ThermaCapture coating provides additional insulation from cold ground making this an ideal seat for the ski tourer or backpacker.

Must have multi-functional and low value accessory!

I was impressed with the multi-functional use I got from the Z Seat SOL. It is a simple, low value piece of kit that comes in very handy when backpacking. At just 60g, it doesn’t break the scales and its accordion-style design means it packs down to a neat cuboid shape, perfect for strapping to the side of your pack. During breaks on the trail I threw the mat down for protection against wet/rough/cold surfaces. The closed cell foam is softer on the top adding comfort and tougher on the bottom for durability. It’s simplistic yet versatile, offering more use than just a sit mat - On arrival at the campsite I used the mat as a rest for my pack whilst pitching my tent, to help keep it clean. At dinner time I used the mat to make a seat on some cold rocks by the lake, it provided some good padding and the ThermaCapture coating worked well to keep that area of my body warm. The site where we pitched was a little boggy and the mat came in useful again as a door mat in the tent porch, ideal for stepping or kneeling on. I’ll certainly be adding this to my pack list for all my future trips.
