HUGE, barely portable

HUGE and heavy! I was somewhat shocked. I had read the reviews and thought it would be a good chair for camping. Unfortunately, my son does a lot of backpacking too -- no way in the world would he use this. It is almost FOUR FEET tall FOLDED (actually 46 inches). It is also SIX pounds! I think the super cheap fold up chair WITH bags at mass market stores is better. I was hoping for a lot more. I wish there had been a better description. I relied too much on reviews. I guess if you drive to all your camping sites, it would be OK.

Responded on

Yes perhaps heavy if you were expecting a backpacking chair but that is certainly not what the chair is designed for. Sorry you were surprised but for future reference Backcountry.com does a great job of listing the specs for all of the products they sell- this chair included. The folded dimensions are listed on the side as 45X5.

Also looking at the reviews people seem to be describing it for its correct usage, which is car camping and lounging.

I know it stinks to not get what you were expecting but at least you are still getting a super comfortable chair to hang out in!
