Back rest!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

From summer concerts to campgrounds this chair gets it done. it isn't the smallest, lightest or the most comfortable, but it is much better than sitting on a log are anything that doesn't offer back support. Good value for what it is.

Better than a rock

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

A little floppy side to side but overall a great travel seat for a great price. The retainer buckles underneath have been subject to a lot of abuse and haven't broken yet.

Anywhere Chair

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This seat goes anywhere. Easy to pack and a pleasure to use. Used it on a row boat for support this summer and on a field during kids games. I've also used it at the stadium during the games at the school.

good, lightweight seat

    satisfied with these seats. We have used them for two outdoor concerts so far, and they seem pretty sturdy (and we are not small people!). I think they will last quite a while. they are very light - easy to carry.

    A Little Better Than the Ground

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

    The title of this review about sums it up—it's a little better than the ground. For backpacking, its weight and packability serve a purpose, but leaning against a tree or your pack might be equally comfortable. But hey, the price on these are pretty good, so there's that. I'd recommend these to someone interested in thru-hiking, but if you're a car camper, you could do better.
    One small complaint is that the design folds the chair back down when not in use, so it's a little hard to get situated in dark settings. Another would be that the low position makes it difficult to warm yourself by some fire pits. However, it's a versatile piece, cheap and pretty easy to pack. So yeah, it's better than the ground.

    Sit Back and Relax

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

    I wanted a chair that was easy to carry, easy to pack, and easy to use. This one has nothing to it really but is exactly what I was looking for! It's lightweight and will pack virtually anywhere. I'm looking forward to using it by the campfire - pass the marshmallows!
