Seem solid...but only time will tell

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Overall a good chair. I have two pairs of of essential chairs; a regular pair and a low down pair, so I wanted to get two more for the rest of the family. The chair bag is thinner than the previous models and lacks the outside netting to store water bottles, hat or misc. gear in tow. These chairs also lack the cargo netting on the backside of the chair itself. The chairs themselves seem as sturdy, save for the crack in the plastic-like liner at the top of the cup holder; customer service is currently sending me a replacement chair. The product tag says it includes a bottle opener; not a deal breaker that the chairs don't have them, but a bit disappointed they are oddly not a part of the product as per label information. Its a decent chair. Only time will tell if they live up to the light blue ones I purchased nearly a decade ago (and still running strong).


This is a Chair

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is just a well made, sturdy chair. None of that super complicated, 'barca lounger by the fire' nonsense here.

Color: Green, trimmed in a sort of pale green.
Cupholder: Holds cups, even big ones.
Sturdiness: I weigh 185 lbs, a girl weighing roughly 110* lbs has sat on my lap in this chair with no issue.

*Kelsey, if you're reading this and I guessed your weight wrong, don't hate me.


Great Camping Chair!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I'm so glad I grabbed this and didn't get some cheapy. This thing is sturdy and has a great cup holder for your cans and or larger stuff. when I shoreline fish I put my fish gear in the holder it's so large and it's so easy to fold and stick in the sweet bag it comes with.
