Description

However, Virginia finds the hammock to be shallow enough that you feel like you’re going to get pitched out of the chair or slip out of the bottom. This is the only chair I’ve ever seen with this frame approach, which can make for a confusing tear down since not all legs collapse into the frame. But, especially as the years go by, lots of us find there’s not much that can beat the comfort a good chair provides after a long day in the saddle.

Alternatively, one could place the chair legs on rocks or bits of bark to help disperse weight and prevent sinking.Overall, for such a lightweight chair, we’ve been impressed by its stability and the comfort it provides.

In terms of how the chair is made, the thick aluminum tubes are larger than many others I’ve seen, especially for a chair of its size. and as such it is made from lower tech materials than some others, but is a robust weave cloth, well stitched, with thicker diameter tubes than many. On anything longer than an overnighter, many bikepacking setups rarely provide space for anything more than the bare essentials. At the time, it was pretty revolutionary because it was one of the first lightweight camp chairs designed for backpacking and backcountry camping. The Monarch is probably least comfortable of these three because the depth of the bowl creates such a “C” curve in the back, but it’s great for slouchy times.While it’s generally safe, as the ground is not far from the seat, a few camping cocktails could make things interesting. Ultralight foam “sit” pads provide some protection from cold and wet ground, and we’ve also used a foam sleeping pad to triple as a stretch mat and a place to sit. A compact camping chair that comes in under 2 pounds, making it an option for backcountry use or most commonly, an easy to haul option for those times in the frontcountry when you need a chair (car camping, backyard cookouts, beach trips, and more). First is the fact that two back legs are riveted in place, meaning that they don’t detach like all the others. Maybe I got 2 particularly awkward ones but it was laughable trying to get the cover on and I actually pulled a muscle in my side and my much stronger girlfriend had to put them together, even she struggled and she does boxing twice a week.

If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. This chair looked really good as it folded small and I needed a small chair that packed up tight and was light weight. The chair doesn't have any extra features such as a cup holder or pockets, but it's main aim is to be as portable and functional as possible and that's exactly what it does. In the most upright position, resting the arms on the straps just isn’t comfortable as the thin edge of each strap is abrasive. And, most of them have experienced a few welterweight friends borrowing them on our many socially distant overnighters over the last year and a half.The cut of the bucket cradles the lower back, providing decent back support, although not as good as the Nemo (see below). The chair has been used during weekend camping trips, day trips to the beach, at several backyard cookouts, and pulled out of the trunk at the trailhead when I’m back at the car after a strenuous hike (I love sitting it in to take my sweaty boots off and enjoy a moment of rest before getting back in the car).

It's light, comfortable and has been probably one of the finest bits of camping kit I have and fits easily on the outside of my pack when wild camping for that extra bit of comfort sitting on the summit watching the sunset. The seating available on the stool is adequate and robust and there is some cushioning where the seat connects to the legs support to cushion your bottom. Bought one just before covid, only used a few times when one of the spiggots snapped at the hub making it useless. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.LIGHTWEIGHT AND COMPACT - This chair from OEX is incredibly lightweight and super compact and makes an excellent addition to your expedition pack. These bends do two things: broaden the base at the point of ground contact, which increases stability, and allow for a wider seat. OEX is one of my favourite UK outdoor equipment brands because everything they design and develop is made with the British weather in mind. We have over 300 original and curated bikepacking routes in our global network spanning nearly 50 countries.
