Therm-a-Rest QuadraPod Chair
Close encounter of the chair kind.
While the hovercraft has yet to be successfully created, the Therm-a-Rest QuadraPod Chair is straight up out of this universe with its four-legged, futuristic look and lightning quick setup. The QuadraPod packs down into its own base and is equipped with 7000-series aluminum poles and rugged ripstop fabric. Additionally, the QuadraPod is fashioned with a luxurious feel thanks to its bucket chair construction while the non-skid feet and 300-pound capacity assure a stellar and stable seating experience.

comfy but tipsy
I like this thing, with your feet up is really, really comfortable. Heavy though, it spends most of the time on my porch.
My wife has been consistently ejected by this thing and doesn't like how it sits. I'm ok with it. I would sit in this before getting one.
better than the ground, worth the lb.'s
I think the title tells you everything you need to know
Not meant for hardcore backpacking
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought two of these. Just sent them back because they broke/cracked. Didn't survive 160 mile backpacking trip. Thermarest products are typically awesome. The design of these chairs is in fact, awesome. However, they both cracked in the same area. A more durable polymer would fix the issue. Prior to cracking, these chairs were incredibly comfortable and worth the 3lb weight.
I work in the repairs department for Therm-a-Rest. It sounds like the issue that you described would likely be covered under warranty. If you can reach out to our customer service and warranty team then they should be able to set you up with some replacement parts.
Super neat and stable enough
It doesn't feel so stable that you might kick back in it, but it's a worthwhile trade-off for its awesome stowability.
Really easy to set up and put away, and beats stuffing a cumbersome folding chair into a bag.
The 300 pound capacity is plenty--just no lap sitting.
