Slacker in Use

Great for Price

    Very cheap and very light and very comfy

    definitely will be buying more

    More Sturdy Than You Think!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got this for booting up in the parking lot at the ski resort as well as apres ski and it's pretty awesome. Small enough to leave in the car and not worry about it but sturdy enough that you don't feel like you're going to fall through it. Might not be compact enough for backpacking but could be a nice bring along for a day hike.

    Tripod for the win

      This is a great chair for how compact it is. It takes up almost no space and is pretty comfortable considering it is a tiny tripod chair.

      Great for car camping, but its large

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

      Overall great stool, solid construction and is very comfy.

      However it is rather tall and did not work for my overnight backpacking needs due to the size it takes up in my pack.

      Five Stars for Quality!! *****

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

      Thank You, Grace ~

      Comfortable and compact

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This chair is more comfortable than it appears. These chairs fold to a very compact size which helps when we pack our smallish 2 door Jeep for road trips.

      does the job for backpacking...

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I took this backpacking and it worked great, it did everything a chair was suppose to do and was very comfortable. I attached it to my pack and so I could easily stop and unfold it in seconds. The only thing is that it's a little heavy for backpacking. I thought it would be lighter but it was still very doable to carry it.

      Small and Versatile

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've used these chairs several times prior to purchasing my first. I love that it's small, light and extremely versatile. One of my recently discovered uses is to turn it facing away from the fire and use it to let me warm my backside. So nice prior to jumping in a cold bag. Buy this chair, you won't regret it.

      Price, function, durability!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is the very best tripod chair around. I have one I use in Alaska fishing. Tough environment but these hold up to it all with the bonus of a small compact light footprint.

      Unanswered Question

      How much weight can this chair hold? I'm 250 lbs. (USA weight)

      It's got 4 Legs

        OK, It really only has 3. I guess that's all you need though.



        I'm not into sitting on the ground. Not even when I am backpacking.

        It's got 4 Legs

        No frills sturdy backpackers stool

          Highly mobile...compact....light. couldn't ask for a better place to rest my but after a long hike. Great multi purpose use and for $20, probably the best in its class. Money well spent.

          Perfect Camp chair!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          bought 2 of these chairs and they were great for camping. Light enough to stick in your backpack and easily pack able. Would recommend.

          Goes anywhere!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          This little chair is super light, super convenient, and super reliable. It is sturdy and reasonably comfortable. I use it frequently at work (I work in an outdoor setting), and also at the beach and on hikes and other trips. Love it!

          Small Chair Big Dog

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          After a long hike in the woods we all need a place to rest. Put your butt (or paw) in this chair.



          Small enough to take anywhere. Tie it to your pack or jam it inside. It fits. Despite its size, this chair feels well built and very sturdy. The seat webbing is pretty beefy. The strap is too short to really comfortably sling it over your shoulder.



          This sucker gets the job done.



          Don't worry the dog isn't dead. She just loves this camp chair.

          Small Chair Big Dog

          Love the portability

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I use this chair for in home massages. It's very lightweight and easy to set up in a short time. It's also very sturdy and price is also beyond reasonable. The chair arrived with time to spare in their ETA.

          Light, Compact & Reasonably Priced

            Light, compact, and reasonably priced. I've stashed one in my car along with a couple bigger folding chairs for the next impromptu tailgate. I imagine it'll also get great use camping and maybe even backpacking. I went with red but would have been happy with any of the colors.

            I liked my first one so much I just picked up a second!

            TRAVELCHAIR Slacker Camp Chair

            No product on this video has mentioned it's weight capacity. AS a 250 lb. adult I need to know this to buy the appropriate item from this line of products.. IT IS a very important selling point IMO..

            Surprisingly Comfortable

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

            Actually bought this for a trip to the happiest place on earth, but they don't allow stuff like this in the park, so while it did not live up to the fullest of its potential that week, it is great to have an extra seat close at hand and does in fact support the 250 pounds it claims.

            A 250 lb. or 275lb capacity. is not in the tech specs, it's only in the Backcountry description or unfortunately in the Slacker company video .Rebecca I appreciate you opinion from observed and practical experience and definitely will keep yourcomment in mind.. THANK you for your clearly honest opinion on this seat. IT IS a big help in my decision making process on it.
