Therm-a-RestTreo Chair

You cook my s'more. I don't want to get up.

Sitting on the ground sucks, but so does hauling around a giant, bulky monstrosity of a chair. The Therm-a-Rest Treo Chair solves your problems by offering big chair comfort in a tiny package. It packs down completely into its own tripod base to take up little room in your car camping setup and utilizes strong 6000-series aluminum poles and rugged Dyneema sling material so you don't have to worry about it buckling under your weight when you imbibe in a few too many campfire weenies.

  • Composite tripod base
  • Non-skid feet
  • 6000-series aluminum poles
  • Dyneema sling fabric
  • 13in seat height
  • Integrated elastic band

Big Chair, Small Package

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This chair is awesome! It collapses down into a fraction of its expanded size and is incredibly light! Great for a variety of activities and is insanely durable! I used it for a couple camping trips and other than some scratches it's been in great working condition!

Most comfortable chair, then it broke!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this around the house for 2 weeks preparing for a trip, and absolutely loved it. It's heavier than a lot of chairs I could find, however this was the ONLY chair that did not force me to lean back too far causing me neck pain.

After the second week, the chair broke. The front right pole broke through the fabric.I weight 138 lbs, and always sat gingerly into it. This was used very carefully, and I can find no reason why it should have broken on me. When I returned it, the store clerk said they'd seen many of these returned.

It's possible I received a faulty one, so I'm giving this one more go. It breaks down and sets up very quickly, and I want it to work out.

If the next one doesn't break, then I would recommend this chair, as it's very comfortable. However, it is easy to tip over, and when you sit it in, you can feel the bars against the bottom of your thighs, which doesn't bother me.

Goats Don't Mind It.

A nice place to sit and ruminate.

Goats Don't Mind It.

UMMM... I'm sorry, hahaha. GOATS. These are adorable! But may I ask, why do you have goats? (P.S. Backcountry must absolutely love you for posting these pictures. Were they like, THAT girl deserves a bonus. ) ;-)

Hey Jamie!
We actually rented 5 pack goats for a backpacking trip with Backcountry Employees. We were using the goats to venture 9 miles into the backcountry with camera stuff and extra gear for a couple different photo shoots. Stay tuned to our blog + social media as we'll be dropping a trip report soon : )

Nice! Excited to read about it.

Great Chair

This chair packs small, but still provides comfortable seating. It is a bit too heavy for backpacking, but it can fit in a backpack and go anywhere else you need a chair.
