    Pure laziness

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Camp chairs are the best to have around!
    - The are great porch seats.
    -This one does sit pretty low to the ground so be careful that you don't just plop down in it.
    -The cup holder is a must have!
    -The beer cooler! whaaaaa, this is why its great for lazy people who don't want to go to their cooler to grab another beer.
    -Also, instead of using it as a cooler my friend used it and said they put their little bit of trash in it.
    -Great buy, would be a great affordable gift too.

    Sit back and enjoy a cold one...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Although a little heavy to lug on a hike or backpacking trip, this Getaway Chair is ideal for summer leisure time and car camping. It is impressively comfortable, easy to assemble and the mesh is breathable for those long days in the sun. The chair does dip pretty low so if you have bad knees or weak legs I would recommend considering other options. And like every other reviewer, I agree that the best feature is the insulated beverage cooler that easily holds up to 4 ice colds brews for after your hike or bike ride. Remember to get a 2nd chair for your lady (or man)!

    it holds 4 beers in the arm cooler!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    these are perfect for sitting around the campfire. they are low, mesh so you don't overheat and they hold 4 beers in the built in arm cooler! It just doesn't get better than that!

    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.

    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!

      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.

        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.

          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!

            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)

              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.

              What is the height of the chair?

              What is the height of the chair when collapsed? Fit in standard large suitcase?

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

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

              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?

              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.

              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".
