The Crazy Creek Original Chair is a camping necessity. Sure it's important to bring your tent, water and food, but none of these items are nearly as enjoyable if you've forgotten your Crazy Creek. Sitting around the campfire, eating and reading become uncomfortable to the point where you just want to go home if you're without your Crazy Creek. It's easy to pack and transport. Use Crazy Creeks to furnish your apartment, take on picnics and to the spring series kickball tournaments.

Old faithful

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Over the years, I've owned three Crazy Creek original chairs. They are solid and pack well in my photo kit. They are used and abused and are well-worth the money I spend on them every eight years or so.

Unanswered Question

Does this chair have a pocket/pouch?

5 5

Yes, Just Yes.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This chair is awesome. Sit anywhere comfortably. Got this as a gift for my husband, he loves it. I love it. Tighten the straps to sit up straight or loosen them to recline. The fabric seems to be holding up well in the 4 months we have owned this.

Do these have a spar inside? Something...

Do these have a spar inside? Something to keep the back from curving, and that can be used as a splint?

Hi David,

The Crazy Creek Original use carbon fiber support stays on the inside, but they aren't designed to be used as a splint. If I needed a splint outside, I would likely first try to find a strong stick first--not go digging into one of my CC chairs.

So, in conclusion--they do have carbon stays, but I'm not sure how you'd use them as a spar.

Great pack-able chair

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This thing is awesome, always throw it in my pack, or strap it to the outside. From sitting around the campfire, to taking it to a BBQ, always finds its way out of my pack to grab a comfy sit spot. Pretty self explanatory on how to use it, comes in awesome color options.

perfect guest seating

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When traveling by (canoe, bike, sled, anything but backpack) these are a perfect respite and well worth the weight. 6 years and still going strong. At home I have them in my small apartment for extra guest seating around the coffee table; much more fun than cross-legged.

how much does it weigh?

how much does it weigh?

Responded on

This weighs in at a light weight 745 grams or 26.7 oz or 1.6 lbs. This is supper durable and should support up to 250 lbs.

The Original Gangster.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Mine, had it for 20 years. Forgettaboutit. Its still going strong. I scooped up an additional for the girlfriend. She huffed and puffed claiming she wanted something with legs. Rubbish! She used it while fishing in a canoe, opened to share a seat on a downed fireside log, ate while sat in it by the fire every meal, and folded it under her lower legs to complete her shorty sleeping pad. She loved it and no longer wants a chair with legs. High fives!

Crazy Creek !

This is by far the most comfortable camp chair I have used. They are durable and awesome. Don't waste your time with cheap imitations, just get the Crazy Creek.

Staple Item.

This piece is essential to any camping trip. Though you're obviously not bringing it along for a lightweight backpacking trip, it's ideal for canoe camping and the like. These are perfect for around the campfire, and the bottom material is bomber. Being able to get off your feet after a long day in the mountains or valleys is priceless, and it's all thanks to these beautiful Crazy Creeks.

Totally awesome chair

We've only had to replace one of these chairs in the past 15 years and that was because a dog ate it. They last forever. We've taken them everywhere. Backpacking, car camping, bleacher seating and boating. We did a 2 week dive trip in the Pacific and these were great a) they packed in our luggage, b) we were the only ones on the dive boat with back support as we were bouncing over the waves, c) even after getting soaked in salt water and gasoline, these baby's have lasted the test of time.

get me one of these!

i just had to get me one of these after i saw how supportive they are. they make your back not get sore at all. usually after a long wrestling tournament all i wanna do is drop like a fly, but after using this amazing technologically advanced backrest, i was ready to wrestle a polar bear into submission.

I'm teach Kindergarten to 5th grade music,...

I'm teach Kindergarten to 5th grade music, and we normally sit in a circle on the floor during class. I was wondering if these chairs would work as comfortable support for the kids' backs, but could also be quickly put away when we got up to do movement activities. Also, would they be durable enough to stand up to being used for five 50 minute classes of children each day?

Responded on

These chairs are great for back support, and, if you have the funds to get one for every student would for sure hold up to the serious abuse kids can dish out. They are also super easy to fold up and stow away, I'm picturing a long hook to hang them from their carrier handles.
I'm a teacher, too, and that sounds like a good idea EXCEPT.... these chairs would be very "fun" for the kids. When you sit down they lean back a bit and you can easily tilt your whole body back to rest just on your butt. I can totally picture kids rocking back and forth in these things, some falling backwards, possibly getting hurt. I feel like it would be more of a distraction for them than a comfort. And I think the kindergarten kids would be a bit too small to fit in the chair properly.
Excellent idea, though! Let me know if it works! :)

Wicked Sick Gift

I bought this Crazy Creek original Chair as a Gift for my mother, and She absolutely loves It, She watches a lot of High School Football Games and Wrestling Matches and her back just killed after a season on metal benches, so I got her some of these and her back I just great now!, I always like to get hugs from a Happy Mom!

Will the back of this chair support your...

Will the back of this chair support your weight if you are lounging on the lawn with a cool one in your hand watching a great outdoor concert? Or does it require the support of bleachers or some such to hold you up?

Best Answer Responded on

You can sit on just about anything with this, no extra support required.

A super comfy way to rock the goat

I love how light and easy to carry this chair is. Super comfortable to sit on, and really adjustable. A good sleeping pad in a pinch too. I think the pockets on the back are pretty worthless, but I just cut em off.

Simply and effective.

This chair is super durable and can make anywhere seem like your living room. I have been on trips where other people had this chair and I didn't. Needless to say, they were all comfortable and I was sitting on a rock. It is adjustable to fit your needs. Perfect for front porch lounging or serious smores around the campfire.
