I bought this because I always end up with a sore back on backpacking and camping trips because of not having a comfortable sitting situation after hiking all day. This chair is light, sets up easily and was easy to learn to use. I carry a backpacking tripod chair with it as a foot rest. This makes what my son calls my "backpacking lazy boy." While I think the chair is a bit pricey on the front end, the quality of manufacturing is so good, I don't think I will ever have to buy another chair in the future. I would definitely buy this again.

If you are a backpacker, looking to minimize weight and maximize you seating comfort this is the chair for you. This thing only weighs around a pound and packs up about the size of a hoagie sandwich making it well worth the price. Great for day packing also and will fit into any small day pack.

This chair is really, really, light and compact when stored in the storage bag. It fits nicely in my pack or attached to the exterior of my pack for quick access. Putting it together isn't difficult considering the construction and design of the chair; some compromises have to made in order to get what you get. When assembled, the chair is surprisingly large! I am six foot two weighing in at two hundred ten pounds and have no problem fitting into this chair comfortably. When in the chair and situated it is nice, comfortable, relaxing, and so many more positive adjectives. It does take practice however to get in and out of that wonderful relaxed sitting position; that being said, it is by no means difficult. The chair, due to its two legged design, can rock back and forth, be a sort of recliner, or be situated so that you are sitting straight up. It is very adaptable to your moment's needs. I have taken this chair on many outings across various terrains in the north east and have not had any problems with the structural integrity. I will say though that I am very careful with the torque I put on the frame due to its perceived tendency to shift with my motions. I fear that if I were not careful and were to move haphazardly in the chair with no regard to its structural limits that it might simply break. The chair is held up by what appear to be nothing more than tent poles, and everyone has seen or at least heard of tent poles bending or breaking under extreme stress. I would say that a large person sitting atop a tent pole chair shaking and moving about would classify as, at least potentially, extreme stress! Additional precautions I take to ensure the long life and enjoyment of the chair are assessing the terrain I place the chair on.Read more ›

This is a great little chair that collapses and can fit in many motorcycle saddle bags and trunk boxes. My motorcycle has a lot of fiberglass and plastic, so bungee cords are not an option. This little comfy chair does the trick. Might be a little pricey (4 stars), but it sure beats sitting down on hard picnic benches at the camp grounds after a long day of riding.

Bought this for our Philmont trip (708G2) - excellent choice! Lightweight, easy to set up, LIGHTWEIGHT, and you can impress your friends by your mastery of the chair----"mastery" defined as "you don't fall over when sitting down"

I bought this chair from REI about 3 weeks ago. It only weigh maybe 12 oz. and is very compact when put away. I plan to take on all of my trips pretty much any where. The only complaint that I've heard is that you can't recline in it, which you can if you balance it right. It is also a little shorter than most chairs but it's still much better than rocks. Other than that its the best, lightest, most comfortable chair on the market.

Although this chair seemed to have a good write up, when I assembled it ,I found that it was only suitable for rocking not sitting comfortably on a beach or other place, if you stopped rocking , you found yourself on the ground with no support. I have returned the chair as it doesn't In fact do what I thought it should do. The price was very high too and altogether a very BIG disappointment....

.....I was looking for a full free standing chair. This chair requires you to use your legs to stay upright. It's great for hiking as it weighs nothing and is small and compact but I didn't investigate things enough and am sending it back because it is too small for my large size. If they built a larger free standing chair I would definitely buy as the build quality is astonioshing!!!
