Well constructed chair

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
Runs large
Size Bought
Only once size
Height
5` 0"
Weight
105 lbs

I purchased this chair for my husband as he likes chairs with motion like this one that not only reclines and rocks. I thought he would absolutely love it, but he didn't. First off, we watched the videos on how to assemble the chair and thought it would be simple, but we received a chair with excessively long rods to support the head rest. While the rods were only a half inch too long, they simply would not go in to the slot sewn in to the very rigid mesh fabric. If you receive a chair like this, do not struggle with it, just call NEMO and they will send you shorter rods. My husband is about 5-ft 7-in and the little neck pillow doesn't quite fit his stature. I am even smaller, and I couldn't sit in the chair with the pillow. I suggest that the velcro to attach the pillow be extended a couple of inches further down in the chair so it will be more comfortable for folks with smaller statures. For my husband, who has very long arms, the two arm rest bars are difficult to grab and not comfortable to rest your arms on. He suggested that they be padded a little bit more. In the reclining position, my husbands feet don't touch the ground and he felt more comfortable using an ottoman. It would be nice if the chair had a foot rest that came up automatically in the reclining position. But other than the issues with the too long rods to support the head rest, I felt the chair was very well constructed, but the mesh fabric a bit to stiff to make it easy to fold back in to the nice zippered bag.

Ingenious design; hair tangles in velcro

The Nemo Stargazer is sturdy and comfortable with an ingenious design, but...the velcro headrest is placed for tall folks. I’m 5'3' and my head doesn’t come anywhere near the moveable headrest. I had to add several inches of my own velcro at a lower placement. That worked for headrest adjustment, but now my hair gets caught & tangled in the original velcro. Gee, Nemo, short people have needs, too.

Glamper's delight

This is the type of equipment that I wouldn't normally purchase for myself, but I had a chance to try it out for free on a recent car-camping trip so I thought, "what the heck? let's glamp!" Pros: - The reclining feature just feels good after a day of adventuring, treat yourself! - Cupholder and snack/phone/storage/etc. pocket add a little extra luxury to chilling by the fire (though most camp chairs also have cup holders at least) Cons: - Wasn't the most comfortable -- while I did like the reclining aspect as mentioned above, the structure of the chair sort of "cocooned" me.. kind of like sitting in a hammock where all the weight slides/sags towards the middle. I think just a little extra structure in the seat area would solve this issue. - Its just a little tall. I'm 5'9", so I'm not super tall by any means, but I'm also not super short. I found that if I was in the reclined position, my feet weren't able to comfortably rest on the ground. They weren't dangling, but they also weren't firmly planted. Having the chair be a little shorter in height, or fixing up some kind of foot-rest would have solved the issue. Take-away: all in all, I think this is a really cool concept for glamping. It definitely delivers some modern comfort, while still feeling like a true camp chair. I just feel that NEMO needs to tweak a couple things to really dial it in to where it would be perfect.

I wanted to love it....

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

It’s comfortable and definitely a glamping bonus to chill in front of a fire. However, compared to other camp chairs, it’s heavy and unwieldy. The footprint is much bigger than I’d hoped. It didn’t swing as much as I hoped either. And as a tall-ish woman (5’7”), but short-waisted, I felt a little cocooned in it trying to talk to the person next to me. I wanted to love it; I really did. It’s worthy of love. Just not from me.

Mesh is prickly, stiff and uncomfortable

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

The chair I received was all mesh and the mesh is really stiff and uncomfortable, with sharp edges that prick you through your clothes. I just couldn’t enjoy the other features of this chair with that mesh distracting me. I can’t imagine how many uses you would need to have before it got broken in. If this were a different fabric I would try it again, but that mesh is awful!

HOLY LUX

Wow these are comfortable. By far the most thought through camp chair I have ever been in. The reclining system actually works extremely well. I would highly recommend. Only downside. The material against bare skin can be slightly pokey at some seams.And although mesh, in the direct heat they are not super breathable. But these are small negatives to such a killer chair. Get a few! They rock!

Ultimate Camp Lounger

Familiarity:

This chair takes camping to the next comfort level. It's awesome for lounging in day or night . It might even be comfortable enough to sleep in. I was hesitant thinking that it would be annoying to set up, but set up is super simple!

SO AWESOME

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

This chair is so comfortable. It's extremely easy to transport which adds to it's appeal as well. Why lug around a huge regular old camp chair when you can sway with the breeze and get a full view of the stars? This chair will change the way you relax around the fire that's for sure. The kids love it as well, it's like the perfect sized hammock for a toddler. I do wish it had some sort of footrest attachment or similar so that you could really lay back but a stump works just as well.

Fell asleep in it

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

This was a really cool chair when I got the chance to use it. It packs up small so it makes transportation really easy, and it sets up even easier. It's comfortable when reclined and it was nice to lean back and watch the stars. I actually fell asleep in it while rocking back and forth after a while.

The Ultimate 4th of July Chair

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

Easy to pack down and set up, this chair is comfortable and let's you rock back and forth. The real stand out features come out at night, however. Simply lean back and comfortably gaze at the stars, fireworks, UFO's or a cloud-driven manifestation of Mufasa from the comfort of your chair.

The perfect middle ground

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This product is the illicit love child between a camping chair and a hammock. It is heavy, and it takes a minute to set it up but once you are situated enjoy the weightless trip. No need to strap in for where you're going, this chair will make you feel like a weightless eagle soaring over the glaciers in Alaska.

Camping or Livingroom Chair?

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This chair is a bit much. Seriously, I love it so much that I have started using it in my living room. It has a mesh-like bottom material that is strong and durable. The mesh makes it breathable so if you are hanging out in it for long periods of time, you can just breath and veg out. I can't forget that it is also a rocking chair! I've rocked myself to sleep a couple of times in this guy. The only thing it doesn't have is a leg rest. But I guess that's what my cooler is for now.

Glamping reaches it's pinnacle

This chair will definitely bring out your lazy side on a camping trip. After a long day of hiking or biking, coming back to this chair will feel like you're rocking on a cloud. The construction is very simple and easy to set up while remaining quite sturdy for your rocking pleasures.

Takes Car Camping to Car Glamping

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

This chair was a big hit on our camping trip over Memorial Day Weekend in Southern Utah. Someone was always sitting in this chair. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this chair is to set up. The carrying bag is *relatively* compact . It is about the size of what your average 4 person tent packs down to. True to it's name, this chair really shines when you're lounging back around the campfire in the evenings, looking at the night sky. I found I was most comfortable in this chair when I was able to prop my legs up on something, like our cooler. It is kind of annoying if you're wanting to sit up straight, as you always feel a little hunched forward. This chair is definitely a necessity if you're wanting to make car camping as comfortable as possible.

Camp in comfort.

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This packs well for how big the actual chair is but is definitely intended for car camping. Very easy to set up and you will be wanting to nap in this bad boy any chance you get. Not too high off the ground, not too low. There is a cup holder and another sleeve for your phone or chap stick/another drink. Material is perfect for summer camping very breathable you could nap in the sun if you wanted to! Put your name on this chair otherwise people will try to steal it!

Glamping Necessity

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

Easy to set up and a sturdy design, this chair is great for hanging around the fire. Leaning back and reclining can feel awkward depending on your body type, and the cup holders aren't exactly the best. Nonetheless, an incredible chair, truly luxurious,

Kinda cool

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This chair is great for reclining and lounging out, but wasn't my favorite chair for sitting around the fire. Super easy to set up, but if you're looking for a bougie chair to star gaze with this is the chair. if you're looking for something to just sit around the fire with I would go with another chair.

Definitely Luxury Camping

This chair is awesome! Its easy to set-up and very stable. It was the most stolen chair of the camping trip and its great for keeping the kids entertained. I do think its better suited ergonomically to taller people, but it was still very comfortable for kids and shorter adults. It feels like a cross between a hammock and a chair. Unlike other reviewers I didn't have any problems getting it back into the bag, but then again nothing is ever very easy to get back in the bag. :-)

Where can I find instructions on packing the chair to fit back in the tote?
