    Kelty stuff stands the test of time.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    All the kelty stuff I own has held up spectacularly. This chair is no different. I have the recliner version too, but this one is nice if you need a slightly smaller chair and/or lower price point.

    It will last much longer than a Walmart chair and you will be stoked on it. Comfort wise, it is run of the mill and there is nothing wrong with that. It has a cupholder that functions just fine. Really happy with this chair for all my desert, apres, loungy needs.

    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 put it through the wringer

    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.

    2016 and still going strong. I'm a lady when it comes to my gear. I treat it kindly with a nice tuck into the closet at night but my chairs are a totally different story. They are thrown everywhere and sometimes ran over (don't judge me). Have a couple of these Kelty's and they haven't let me down shown any wear or tear other than a little to a lot of dirt.
