    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a very comfortable chair. I would say this is the ideal bacpacking chair, espeacially if you have a pad that will fit right in it. It does take a minute to set up and your comfort and stability results will vary based upon which pad you have to use with it.

    The most poorly designed product ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Ok, the title is a little strong, but really, this is one of the most poorly designed products ever. The stay rods, which make the chair a chair, require 1 of 2 things: 1. Interminable wrestling with them to get them into the rod sleeves or 2. Cutting the rod sleeves open so the poles can fit. Both are highly suboptimal. I had a chair kit for 15 years that worked beautifully until the seams ripped and replaced it with this one, expecting it to be better. It's really shocking that a great company like Therm-a-Rest would produce such a poorly designed product.

    Used with Nemo Astro Air Full

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    No problem fitting a 2.5 inch thick full length pad in this. It is one of the longer setup time chairs but once you've got it under your tired tush you'll be glad you did. Its fairly packable. I kept mine rolled up and in on of the external side pockets common to most backpacking packs. After sitting in it in the evening, I would keep my pad secured in the sleeve and simply release the tension straps and slept on it. In a way, its a 2 in 1 product. You get a 2 position chair and a sleeping pad liner to keep dirt/drool off your pad.

    This seat is not designed to work with the NeoAir series. You should check out the Jembe seat - which turns your NeoAir into a little stool. Not as comfy perhaps but it is lightweight.

    I have neo's and it works fine... tight fit but it does work. called thermarest to confirm this and they said that it works but due to the tight fit you may not get the full 2.5in of padding out of your neo air when lying flat in bed mode. I noticed no difference, and now the neos are protected with a sleeve 24/7 when in use and i get a comfy chair out of the deal too. win win.

    Review Title

      Took some time to get it on the pad, but once on, it stays, and it truly holds up as a campsite lounge chair. I'm very happy with it. It's also good as extra protection for the Thermarest pad. The only problem I see with it is that campmates are going to be trying to get to it before I do...

      Well Worth It

        I don't mean to sound redundant of previous reviews but this chair makes camping, backpacking, or anything where you need a rest so much more comfortable that I feel it is worth reiterating. The Trekker is lightweight, protects your pad, and gives your weary back the rest it deserves. If you can master removing and replacing the stays (which at first can seem like quite the chore) then you can convert it quickly and kick back while your friends sit on rocks and lean against trees. If your worried about spending the $$$ on something that seems less than necessary I would strongly recommend picking this item up. You won't be sorry.

        Must Have

          This chair is the way to go. I would have a hard time camping comfortably without it. I'm by no means an ultra-light minimalist, and consider this chair a must pack. I have the 25" version for my prolite 4 large and it is great. I used to fold my mattress in half and stuff it in a stuff sack, then put it in my pack. Now I just remove the back stays and roll it up and strap it to the top of my pack under the lid. Super comfy and way supportive. I'm 6'2" and 250 and it supports me no problem.

          best as a sleep mat

            expected my trekker lounge chair to act like a crazy creek chair which is more rigid and designed ONLY as a chair.
            trekker chair isn't rigid enough as a chair. i'll test it later as a sleep mat - i think that'll be the best use.

            I've got an old Original Therm-A-Rest full-length 20" pad and was wondering if this chair kit will fit it. Thanks!

            When I install the regular NeoAir Trekker...

            When I install the regular NeoAir Trekker pad inside the lounge chair the length is reduced to 69" rather than 72". I thought the Lounge spec is 72". Am I missing something?

            I got the chair today but did not know it...

            I got the chair today but did not know it didnt come w the pad,((( can anyone tell me which pad to buy??

            I have just bought the Thermarest Trekker...

            I have just bought the Thermarest Trekker Lounge and an Exped Downmat 9 deluxe. I had read that this would work out, but hadn't realised that the deluxe version of the Exped downmat is a little wider than the regular pump version. I do read here that a trick is to inflate the matress after you put on the Trekker Lounge. But do anyone know if the Downmat which is 65 cm wide, could fit at all in the 25" Trekker Lounge? Please - I need to know before ordering!

            I guess I'm too late to be of any use to mona.ostda1285423 but I had the same question and couldn't find an answer.

            I have an Exped Synmat 7M (50 cm wide, 7 cm thick) and it works with a Thermarest Trekker Chair 20' (NOT the lounge version). It looks a bit puffy but it's actually really comfy and easy to fit.

            Please note: I haven't had a chance to try the lounge version and if you have a larger Exped (LW) pad, you probably would need the 25' chair.

            Would a Trekker Lounge 25 work with a 20"...

            Would a Trekker Lounge 25 work with a 20" pad?
            I have a 20" wide Therm-a-rest pad that is getting old. I'd like to get a Trekker Lounge 25 in case I get a wider pad one day but I'm worried about the 20" pad working in the Trekker 25 because of the way it folds and straps into a chair. Anyone have any experience with this?

            There's a Trekker Lounge 20" too. The 25" is going to be too wide for a 20" pad and having had a 25" pad with the Trekker Lounge 25", I would imagine a 20" pad in a 25" sleeve would fit, but would make for an uncomfortable chair. I'd highly suggest looking for the Trekker Lounge 20" instead. When I was searching fro it, that model was cheaper anyway and was the exact same thing except designed for a 20" pad. Good luck.

            Is there a trick for taking out the stays?...

            Is there a trick for taking out the stays? I spent 5 minutes just getting the first one out then gave up on the rest.

            Does this chair have straps to compress...

            Does this chair have straps to compress and attach it to a pack? Or do you need a compression sack?

            The Trekker Lounge does have two straps at the head of the sleeve to secure the rolled up pad which could also be used to attach it to your pack. However these straps only work if you remove the stays and roll it from the bottom to the top. Some people have trouble removing the stays or don't remove the stays for fear of loosing them (which is my problem) and therefore must fold and roll it so that the stays are parallel. In that case a compression sack would be needed. Hope this helped.

            Can this sleeve chair kit be used with any...

            Can this sleeve chair kit be used with any thickness of Therma-rest?

            I bought the lounge chair along with the 2.5" thick camp pad by REI. Got it in the Mossy Oak woodland pattern BTW 'cause I like subdued & natural. The pad's 72"x 25" x2.5" (regular) and fit like a glove. The pad was super-compact because I put it in before it's first inflation but wouldn't have a problem doing it again. Ya just have to be patient, do a little folding, and smooth it on there.

            I've got a prolite 4 short. Anybody know...

            I've got a prolite 4 short. Anybody know if this will work with a short pad? Thanks in advance.
