Exped Chair Kit
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $50
Great addition to the Exped mat. Allows you to sit up in the tent and lounge or makes a cushy chair.
- Protects your pad
- Saves your lower back from pain.
- Additional weight
I leave this on my Exped down mat 9 most of the time other than for very long backpacking trips where min weight is the goal. It alows you to pull a few straps and have a great back rest in your tent for reading or lounging. It also protects the pad from dirt and wear. You can also arrange it into a very cushy chair.
Just be careful around the fire, or cover it with a wool blanket to protect from sparks.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Turn your Exped mat into a comfortable backcountry lounger with the Exped Chair Kit. The durable bottom resists snags and punctures and the aluminum poles can be removed easily. Unlike other chari kits, the Exped allows you take full advantage of your full size pad.
Squatting around a campfire may have worked for our Stone-Age ancestors, but we've evolved since then. Enjoy the outdoors in comfort with the Exped Chair Kit, which converts your sleeping pad into a chair or lounger. Simply slip your mat into the protective cover, insert the stiffening poles, clip, and enjoy. When it's time to sack out, you can simply unclip the straps and stretch out without having to stand up.
