I love this one.  Got it $10 cheaper at amazon tho.  Compact, light, and very sturdy.

Thanks for the recommendation, Michaelnaut.  Looks great and opens easily.  I need to get 3!

Highly recommend this one! 330 lb weight limit if that’s a consideration, and very sturdy.

Thanks for the additional suggestion!  My husband has a bad back so I'll get both and let him test them.

I'm not sure if this is quite the right place to ask this, but a cursory scroll through all the various threads didn't lead me to what I thought may be a better/more appropriate one. :)  I'm cosplaying pretty intensely all days of con & I could use an assist getting into my "Witcher" Geralt armour (season 2) in particular....alas, given how hardcore that armour is (custom-fit molded leather), it's just not possible for me to get into it on my own.  My current plan is to do that cosplay on the Friday!  If someone would be amenable to help fasten the armour for me (cuirass mainly, and 2 bracers) on Friday morning, I would be only too happy to treat them to breakfast or Starbucks and a treat!  I'm staying right super close to con. :)

This year I learned that my feet can no longer take wearing Chuck Taylor Converse with all the walking. NEVER AGAIN!
