Here's what others have to say...

Killer lounger

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

More comfortable that the standard folding chair. It doesn't dig into your legs at the edge of the chair where the webbing connects the the front legs. The pictures don't quite show it, but this chair sits pretty low with a sloped back. The insulated pocket is pretty cool also.

Best chair ever.

I love this chair so much I am ordering another. The cooler in the arm will hold 4 beers! It doesn't get any better than that!

I picked up this chair about 1.5 yrs ago

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got it on a daily deal for 30 bucks. Have to say in the realm of comfortable (for my 5' 6" frame) its amazing. The full mesh seat bucket allows an incredible amount of air to reach the body. Its low set, slightly reclined, seating position is perfect.

I've not had any issues with campfire heat causing problems with the materials. Not sure how close the other reviewer was sitting to the heat, but at 3~ feet I've had no issues.

The chair is a little heavy and long when collapsed. Definitely wont fit in a water tight bulkhead of a kayak, doesn't fit my Necky Manitou 146r.

Overall chair is durable, very easy to clean (mesh) and still looks great after a year and half of use. Simply put, I love this chair.

Secrets revealed!

After answering the same question three times I thought it would be easier to post a link as a review.

Amazingly complete specs of this chair can be found here. Includes dimensions, weight, features, etc. Quite nice detail actually!

Does anyone know the weight of this chair?...

Does anyone know the weight of this chair? I like the dimensions and structure but weight would be a slight concern for me when kayaking and canoeing on weekend trips on shallow Missouri rivers.

Best Answer

Heavy. Alps says it weighs 7.5 pounds.

Good and Bad...

Sits well. Don't get to close to the campfire, melts quickly. The 2 can cool bag on the armrest makes closing and getting into the bag difficult.

Great camp chair

It sits a little lower to the ground which to me is more comfortable. Nice mesh backing to keep airflow to your back which is important in Southern California. So far it is holding up great. Although my wife and i don't weigh 300 lbs, our kids like to jump on our laps and it has held up to it. Cup holder is great, although I wish it would be big enough to hold a nalgene. Cups and cans fit just fine though. I like the little cooler deal on the other arm, keeps my drinks cool and close.

All in all, nice chair, sturdy and comfortable.

When the chair is set up and you are sitting in it, about how high off the ground are you? (In inches or feet)

Hard to tell from the pictures - does this...

Hard to tell from the pictures - does this chair have 2 armrests?

Yes, two armrests, one has a cup holder, the other has a little cooler to keep about 2 cans cold

Comfy, but design issues

Yep, the chairs are very comfy and lightweight. Even the insulated pocket (which we thought was corny at first) came in handy on a hot Main Salmon river trip.

BUT... there are 2 serious flaws:
#1 - Once we used these chairs in a sandy environment, it was next to impossible to get them to fold back up. We tried cleaning them, lubing them with silicone. Nope. Seriously spent about 1/2 hour one morning trying to figure out the problem. And this was with both chairs that we purchased. In the process of trying to push them closed, the screws at the bottom of the legs that go into the rubber feet just popped right out.

#2 - The carry bag is too small and just makes you spend more time trying to pack these chairs up and once you manage to get it into the bag, it looks like some of the frame is going to pop right through the material.

Waiting for the updated design to come out and maybe we'll consider purchasing them again. We returned the 2 we bought.

Very helpful. Mine would mostly be used on sandy beaches where I canoe camp, which rules this chair out.

Are you going to get the Black Mesh version...

Are you going to get the Black Mesh version back in stock at any point in the near future?

No, non are on order at this time. It could be a while.

Great comfy chair

Took this chair on a camping chair and absolutely loved it. At first I was skeptical because it is low to the ground and I have long legs. But the way the chair leans back made it perfect for me. Most of the time I found that my friends who had normal straight back chairs were trying to steal mine!

Waiting for my chairs to arrive. It sounds like a great chair and sturdy too!

I hope this makes sense...
See the point...

I hope this makes sense...
See the point where the arm rests meets the vertical post in the back. That section that holds the arm rest at a specific angle. My question is, does the arm rest slip down this easily. I don't like it when this happens, I like to set the arm rest where I have it and it stay there. It drives me nuts when they slip down and the arm rest is useless.
thanks for any help.

Understandable and it makes sense. The arm rest is supported, sits on top of a stopper and a pole. The only thing you'll have to do is well... sit there. Go Bulldogs!

Review Title

A haiku for the chair:
Black chair waits
tired hikers return
soothing chair comfort
feet in creek
ahhhhh :)
(I really really like this chair a lot. It's low to the ground, which is good, because I'm kind of short. It's angles are very comfortable, and it doesn't dig in to the backs of my thighs like other camp chairs sometimes do)

This sounds strange, but I need to know...

This sounds strange, but I need to know if you can roll a basketball under this chair? I want to use this for a festival, but they do not allow higher chairs that you can "roll a basketball under".

it would be really hard to do that with the strut set up but without that i think its tall enough to do that.
