    Original Chair

    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.

    Still a classic

      Can't deny the awesomeness and many uses of the crazy creek. I keep one in my car during the summer months. In the past year alone I have used it as a seat when I wanted to be lazy on a SUP board; we hiked them up to a peak to watch the total solar eclipse; and used them for summer concerts.

      High quality chair with reinforced material in places that take abuse. Have also seen one of these used as a splint for a broken tib/fib. The doctor applauded the use of such an excellent camping chair for transportation saying it worked as well as what they had but at a fraction of the cost.

      i take this everywhere

      i take this everywhere. friday night football games, camping, backpacking and even white water rafting. this char is simple, comfortable and good everywhere! i highly recommend and love this chair!

      The Original Butt Holster

        After seeing my parent's old Crazy Creeks get packed before every adventure throughout my childhood, I figured it was time to call one my own. The simplicity of the chair is key - it provides all the comfort I'll ever need for everything between concerts and camping trips. However, it's the durability that has me hooked...I expect to have this thing forever.

        I use this everywhere I go. Waiting for my laundry reading a book at the Laundry mat, waiting to climb at the crag, to keep my feet clean, a pillow (not ideal) and many other things. Not to mention all the compliments I get on the tie-dye

        Regular collapsible camp chairs are nice when the ground is flat and you've got plenty of room in the car, but the Crazy Creek is the way to go if your campsite is uneven or your car is too full for the big chairs. It's lightweight enough to bring along to walk-in campsites or on a backpacking trip, and is super comfortable.

        Whats not to love?

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Picked one up for the lady for work, she works with sports teams and ends up sitting on bleachers all the time. Plus now I do not have to steal a friends while sitting around the campfire. You should buy one for every person in your family.

        Thumbs up

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This chair is great to take anywhere you want a comfortable place to sit down. I've used it hanging out next to some waterfalls, in my room at home, on the deck, and now it's going on a canoeing trip! It fits perfectly in the back of the pack for a nice comfy backrest while portaging. You don't have to worry about sitting on the wet ground, or finding the perfect place to pop a squat, it's super comfy and adjustable to lean back as far as you want. I bought the ash/moss colored one and love it because it's a beautiful green. I'm planning on taking it on many many trips to come.


        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I bought these as a gift for friends, they are so comfy and easy to bring along to a picnic, camping or concert. We even used them floating the river on our SUP.

        Classic never fails

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I purchased two chairs for an upcoming backpacking voyage. One of them came in on time, unfortunately not mine, needless to say I was super jealous the whole trip as I sat on a log.

        When deciding on color the debate was between tie-dye and black for my boyfriend. My influence was tie-dye because why would you buy a black chair when you could buy a tie-dye one?! Tie-dye was the result and it is freaking awesome, plus it's decided the chair will never be lost nor will anyone ever be accidentally shot by a hunter with it strapped to a pack.

        The next debate, should we take it hiking? The chair didn't make the hike, but as soon we reached the summit and sat down for lunch, the words "I should have brought my Crazy Creek," were definitely spoken. So, a photo in camp it is!

        The chair is as simple and functional as it gets, just make sure you have enough for everyone.

        Classic never fails

        Happy Camper

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I am always the envy of the campsite when I bring this along. It makes sitting around the fire that much more awesome.

        My brother packs his on backpacking trips and uses it as a sleeping pad. I don't know if I would ever do it, but maybe you could give it a try.

        Nice little camping chair!

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

        I have used these before but have never had my own, so far, I am really liking it. The pattern is a lot of fun, and it is comfortable to sit in around the fire!

        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. ADDENDUM: I also use the chairs as a sling to carry tons of equipment.

        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.

        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.

        • 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!

        Unanswered Question

        Does either the Alps Mountaineering weekender camp seat or the Crazy CreekHex 2 Original Chair come with a mash pocket to carry a water bottle and other essentials? Thanks.

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

        Best Answer

        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.



        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?

        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! :)

        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?
