I bought more!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought a couple of these earlier this year and just bought a couple more because they are so great. PLUS they are on sale!

good ... slightly better

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

good chair ... slightly better than other cheaper chairs of this type. Extra strap makes a bit easier to carry without shoulder concerns (sort of - still similar type weight, just spread out) ... the mesh does make it a bit cooler (we used first time on a 90degree day), and I bet easier drying out with morning dew ... and the side "cooler" addition is nice. Final thought, I think this also stays slightly below the 30" recommendation for concerts - but not really sure the guys at the entry really notice a difference?!

10/10, Would Drunk Buy Again!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I found out that I purchased on a sunny saturday morning ( following an outdoor concert with shitty camp chairs) via backcountry email confirmation, and immediately broke out in the "oh no what did I buy now" sweats. After going through the reviews, it started to become apparent that I may have done my due diligence and made what appeared to be a solid purchase; which was a bit of a relief. When they arrived and I tested them out, I was beyond impressed, I would easily pay over $50 for these chairs. They are slung nice and low, the mesh back is perfect for summer weather, and the pocket cooler really seals the deal while ensuring many more drunken backcountry purchases to come. I immediately pounded a 40 and bought two more to celebrate my amazing decision making abilities. Getting them in and out of the sleeve is a bit of a PITA, but the overall quality and value make it 5 stars.

Great chairs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have never owned any camping chairs so I was really excited to get some for camping and outdoor concerts, you know the ones with the security guards walking around with tape measures. Nice cool and comfy and the cooler bag is my favorite feature, I need to get more as gifts!

Comfy and Cool

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These chairs seem pretty sturdy for the price. And we like the mesh that keeps you cool. Good colors. We like that they are low because our little one can climb in all by herself. She loves them. Good Chairs

Nice chair

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

Very sturdy chair,comfortable and low. I bought this chair for camping , fishing, and to keep in the back of my jeep for when I need a chair.

Breathable!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The ALPS Mountaineering Getaway Chair is comfortable, breathable and spacious! One of the best chairs out there for the price. It's low enough for outdoor concerts, the side cooler is so awesome and the cup holder fits most cups/bottles (no Nalgenes). The good new however, the Nalgene can be tossed in the side cooler. Booyah!

Beer drinkers rejoice

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It has a beer cooler in it. Yes.
It's also fully mesh backed which is great for the hotter days we have here in Utah, and it sits relatively low to the ground so you don't feel like you're lording over everyone else in the campfire circle.

This chair has changed my life.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's impossible to sit in this chair not be happy about it. Furthermore whatever you're watching becomes instantaneously more interesting because your comfort level is at an all-time high. Pretty light. Looks like it's gonna last long time.
I may buy several and give them to my parole officer as a thank you gift. You will not be disappointed

Chillax around the camp

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great camp chair to chill and relax around the camp. I really dig the insulated pocket for a snack or adult beverages!

it works

    decent chair. A little pricey. I like the cooler pocket and i use it to keep track of other things too.

    So simple!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought two of these chairs and they are great! Sturdy, breathable, the whole deal right here.

    The best

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    perfect for all the soccer games of nephews I have to take care of ...

    Chair + views +coffee= heaven

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Here's a cool pic of my chair in action camping up in Silver Reef outside of St. George (Blue chair on the left) . This chair + this view + a big cup of coffee= heaven. It;s science.

    Chair + views +coffee= heaven

    Comfy campsite chillin' chair

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Woah that was a lot of "C's" in the title. But definitely all true! I just got this chair and brought it car camping and while it is a little bit big to travel with, is definitely my new camping staple! The chair is pretty low to the ground and the arm rests with one cup holder and then the other side with the little cool are PERFECT. Haven't used the little cooler armrest yet to keep things cold but it works to hold snacks just as well. All the specs are in the review below which I got directly from the ALPS mountaineering website. My only issue is that the chair is kind of big and heavy when folded up but its easy to just throw in the back of the car and head outside! Overall I really like it and would recommend.

    ***PRODUCT DESCRIPTION***

      The name couldn't be more fitting... If you like relaxing on the beach, listening to the waves roll in, the Getaway will be the perfect chair to escape to. If it's a hot summer day, the Mesh fabric will provide maximum air flow and there is an arm cooler attached to keep your beverages cold. To make transporting as easy and convenient as possible, there are two straps on the included carry bag, so you can wear it like a backpack and keep your hands free for other things you may want to carry.

      Killer Chair

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      While I love the earth and the ground it's really nice to kick back and relax in this chair! Perfect for car camping or hanging out at a bbq. The low stance puts no pressure on the legs so you can really get comfy. Love this chair!

      Great Chair

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

      I purchased this chair as a gift and it is perfect. Comfortable and lower sitting style that is great for the campfire, beach, or show. A great chair for any use.

      Great Beach Chair

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Sits low, holds a few beers in the cooler pocket and the backpack style straps on the bag make it easy to carry.

      Pure laziness

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Camp chairs are the best to have around!
      - The are great porch seats.
      -This one does sit pretty low to the ground so be careful that you don't just plop down in it.
      -The cup holder is a must have!
      -The beer cooler! whaaaaa, this is why its great for lazy people who don't want to go to their cooler to grab another beer.
      -Also, instead of using it as a cooler my friend used it and said they put their little bit of trash in it.
      -Great buy, would be a great affordable gift too.
