    Big Things Come In Small Packages

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great little chair! It is incredibly lightweight and packs very small. It is also super quick and easy to set up. I've used it on several camping trips this past summer. The mesh material helped air out my back on super hot days. The chair itself is fairly small and sits pretty low to the ground. I'm not sure how well it would fit someone that is super tall. I think this chair is very comfortable, but I'm also pretty short. The chair is so small that I just leave it in the back of my car in case I'm ever in a situation that I might need a seat.

    The Coolest and Lightest Camp Chair

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My boyfriend bought me this camp chair for my birthday back in April right before we went on a climbing trip to Moab, and to put it in a nutshell -- this chair is awesome!

    It's so easy to set up -- in about 1 minute you will have a comfy seat to lounge in after a long day of backpacking, climbing, or whatever outdoor activity you indulged in. The rods are all connected to each other so you can't lose any part, and it basically sets itself up using a system of resistance cords that connects them all together on the inside of the rods. All you have to do is free them up a little and they will begin to assemble together with a few adjustments needed. Then put the seat cover on and you're done!

    The chair case also doubles as a little holder/pocket if you put it on before you put the chair cover over the frame.

    The chair sits a little close to the ground but I don't find that to be a problem.

    If you are looking for a super lightweight and easy to set up/pack down camp chair for backpacking or car camping, this is the one! Buy this chair.

    Converted Skeptic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Most of my life I have been perfectly happy sitting on rocks or tree stumps while I'm out in the woods. I've seen my travailing companions get psyched over a new gimmicky camp chairs then completely give up on them on the after a few trips. I figured this "Chair One" would be the same, either too fragile, too heavy, or not comfortable enough to be worth bringing it along. That was until i was given one as a gift. Trying it out changed my opinion on lightweight camp chairs forever. Long gone are the days of sitting my sore butt on a jagged rock or slightly slanted stump. This chair comes with me wherever I go and keeps me sitting comfortably.

    One word of caution though. You move your feet you loose your seat.

    Perfect

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

    I've wanted one of these for a while, and I'm glad I finally pulled the trigger. I got to use it in the desert this weekend and it's exactly what I had hoped for. Packs up tiny, sets up easy.

    Comfy and Portable!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This chair really is amazing. It's incredibly light and packs away into a small case. Perfect for backpacking. Setup is very quick and easy, and although the chair almost seems like it would be flimsy, it holds up to plenty of weight. I really love how comfortable the chair is. you really sink into it and it feels great. A cup holder would be nice but it doesnt really work with the design of the chair with no arm rests after all.

    Tiny!

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

    I just picked up two of these chairs after an overnight trip with some friends who had them. I was so impressed with how small and light they packed down to. All the comfort you get out of a nylon chair, with just a little stretch to the fabric. So far I have only brought car camping, but I would not hesitate to bring backpacking with how light and small they are.

    Best 100 i ever spent!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First time I used it was in a downpour while grilling a ribeye on bank of Black River. Except for needing tennis balls on legs to prevent sinking in soft ground this thing rocks! I'm 245 lbs. Can lean back and enjoy. Will never sit on a rock again! Weight...what weight? I'll pack it gladly. Top quality construction as well.

    Campside

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love how lightweight and easy to assemble this is! Broke my finger and couldn't help much setting up camp but this chair made it so easy! Comfortable and sturdy. Supported my 90lb lab thinking he is a lap dog! Can't wait to take this backpacking and up a summit!

    I've Taken It Backpacking

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It packs down super small, it's super light, and it's super comfy. I took it backpacking, my friends made fun of me for bringing a chair, I was the one laughing in the end.

    I also watched the second half of the Falcons/Patriots Superbowl sitting in this chair and we all know how that ended, so, I can't say for sure, but I will anyways, this chair won the Patriots the Superbowl.

    It is a great chair that can be used in many different settings.

    It's Really Small and Light

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    This camp chair is basically perfect. Doesn't take up much space and it's pretty damn light to boot.

    No more Lugging

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For years I have just sat on the ground at concerts, games, picnics etc because I can't stand lugging folding chairs around. NOT ANYMORE - I can throw this chair into my purse and park it anywhere. Worth the $ for no more hassle.

    Mind Blowing!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm used to crappy, inexpensive, heavy chairs. Then I bought this chair and will not ever change chairs again. This chair is strong/durable, always feels safe and secure instead of other chairs feeling like they are going to break if you sit on it. It's extremely comfortable and light weight. A must have chair!

    Love the chair - graphics...not so much

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    My wife loved the chair, but the Aspen Grove graphics leave much to be desired - it's subtle, but there's a distracting nude female back drawing etched into the trees that just doesn't belong on a camp chair (in our humble opinion). The chair itself is great though. We bought one locally in the black color since our trip was only a day out from when the Backcountry order arrived. I'm 6'4" and my wife is 5'6" - it fits us both well (though we both are on the thin side - unsure how a more ample backside would do in it).

    Should Have Bought Two

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm usually a minimalist when it comes to camping gear (2lbs, that's 1/2 the weight of my tent!) but I decided to scoop this up during a holiday sale for a wilderness medicine class I was taking, where a lot of the course would be outdoors, and I didn't want to sit on the ground all day.

    I had no idea what I've been missing! First, 2lbs is incredibly light for a chair. When I've borrowed chairs from friends for car camping they're always heavy, and even when folded are kind of awkward and difficult to pack around in the car. This folds down to nothing, and is a perfect little rectangular tube inside its bag, making it easy to fit in a backpack or your trunk. Second, it's easy to put together, the first time I opened it I was sitting comfortably in less than a minute. Lastly, it's very sturdy, this fabric doesn't feel like you'll tear it and it's easy to wipe down so you'll be able to keep it from getting grimy.

    It now lives in the back of my truck so I have it ready for impromptu beach trips, or relaxing after a trail run. I'm definitely going to get a second!
