Monarch Chair

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Tired of sitting on the ground or searching for a dry place to sit at camp after a long hike? This chair fits in your backpack, is quick to set up, and is quite comfortable.

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Trying to get Alite to respond to my warranty replacement for a failed/broken Mayfly chair has been futile by phone (never returns my voice mail...tried several times). Don't buy...bad service/warranty support. Full review

Monarch Chair

rated 5 of 5 stars This was quickly coined the "stupid chair" after I excitedly showed my dad my cool, new chair and he responded: "That's stupid." Here are all of the reasons it's not... First of all, these chairs are a lot of fun. I don't think you can buy one without a sense of humor. It's pretty interesting to watch people try to sit down in them. Once you figure out how (hold the chair up to your butt as you sit down instead of trying to balance it on the ground), you begin to see the practicality of it. The… Full review
