User Review: Alite Monarch Chair
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $73 retail but had dividend and 20% off
I love it! Lightweight can go anywhere. Wish I had this chair when I was young, perfect for festivals and concerts.
- Quick and easy
- Pricey enough that I am a bit possessive
I used my REI pts and a Teacher of the Year giftcard to buy myself something I really wanted. Had seen the chair earlier and loved it so when the opportunity came to purchase I was right on it! I took it on the beach with me and it worked perfectly on the packed sand , softer sand I did sink a bit.
I like it because I can throw my legs out in front and stretch out. I did a most important test ...opened a beer, called my dog Bax to jump in my lap and did not tip over or spill the beer. I guess good knees are important for getting up...but if you needed a little help, perhaps keeping your walking stick close by would work.
It is light enough that I take it on trails with me and when I come upon a view that deserves more than a pass I get our the chair, pop it together and soak up the scene. I am 54, love being outside, can't afford too much fancy stuff..but know good tents, good pads, good cooking gear and good chairs make the difference.
