Unfortunately, I live in a condo with no yard. I have to set up in public areas, so I like to limit the gear I take out at one time. If I can't take everything out in one trip, it's not going out. I can strap a fold-up camping stool around my shoulders. I don't think I'd be able to do that with a Catsperch Pro.
Now, when I travel to a dark site, I can pack more gear and I do. But so far I haven't needed a special astro chair for my Dobs and Cats. A $19 adjustable stool works fine.
But since I've gone ED/APO, I'm done with the achro. Never did like the CA. Never liked the GEMs. Never liked the long tubes with the huge range in eyepiece altitude. Expect to see all that for sale soon on S&S and AstroMart. Though I think I'll keep the little achro finders and the ST80. And of course the C80ED is not going anywhere.
