REI Flexlite Air Chair

My chair broke. REI provides no resources for parts or repair of this chair. I have one of these chairs with a broken joint. I weigh 157 lbs, and it was not being misused when it broke. REI wouldn't help with the part or repair. I was given the oversea distributor's info, but no one replied. This is an expensive chair to be an unreliable throwaway. For a company like REI that pushes sustainability, this item does not reflect their own standards.        Full review

REI Flexlite Air Chair

A great lightweight luxury item I have not carried the extra weight of a chair until now, opting for available logs, boulders, ground, and bear can (when carried) as a seat. However, after sampling a friend's Helinox Chair Zero on a weeklong backpack this summer, I decided to go for it and get one for myself. I ended up getting the REI Flexlite Air. It was less expensive (helps when it's on sale too) and was similar to but about an ounce lighter. Comfort and fit for me are very similar. Like most… Full review

La Siesta ZunZun Travel Hammock Chair

A lightweight, packable, comfortable hanging chair. This hammock chair arrived in its own stuff sack, and the instructions for setup are sewn inside! My 9-year-old and I could easily put this up. The spreader bar disassembles easily and packs into the bag. It's lightweight enough to add to your backpack and provide a comfy alternative to sitting on the ground. We use it at home on our swingset, and both grownups and kids love it. It's the perfect spot to snuggle with a book and a warm drink. When… Full review

Sling-Light Chair

I manufacture the Sling-Light camp chair and headrest and have since 1977. We stopped making the chair from 2014 to 2019 because of low demand and high production run costs. We restarted production in 2019 and it is available to order directly from the Sling-Light website. I developed and manufacture the Sling-Light camp chair and headrest so I will let the customers review the chair as I have seen in this section. It is a great chair, but has its limitations as to size, weight, and cost. It is… Full review

La Siesta ZunZun Travel Hammock Chair

Extremely comfortable chair that can be used at home or anywhere you feel like traveling with it! Well worth the purchase! Outstanding chair for travel or home use. Extremely comfortable, fairly lightweight, and easy to set up. Only issue I have with it is I haven’t been able to find a tree with a branch hanging off heavy enough to support the chair with someone in it the two times I have taken it backcountry camping. It needs a hammock strap system of some sort to strap between two trees and… Full review

GCI Outdoor Pod Rocker Pro

The Pod Rocker Pro takes lounging over the top for taller and larger campers. My Pod Rocker Pro was one of two folding rockers that I ordered from GCI Outdoor. I really wanted a chair that I could kick back and relax in and anticipated that the Pod Rocker Pro would fit the ticket. The lack of hard armrests and the chair’s scoop shape really appealed to me and I thought that the green fabric would show the least amount of dirt in the woods. I got the Pod Rocker Pro due to the higher weight limit… Full review

La Siesta ZunZun Travel Hammock Chair

I really love this hammock chair, and would totally recommend it to someone looking to use it for a short distance hike (or at home!). What an awesome idea! I love to hammock, but the most frustrating thing is trying to find two trees that are the perfect distance apart. This makes it so easy!  I came up with a lot of pros, and also a couple of cons while trying this out a few times; Pros First off, I need to absolutely talk about the shipping. I ordered it on June 10th, and got it two days later!! Full review

Helinox Chair Zero

This is a super light chair which is very useful in the backpack or even the paniers on a bike trip. It weighs less than a full water bottle, and it is great for a picnic. The legs will sink into loose dirt, mud, or sand—so pick hard ground. The chair has been a great addition to the backpack and paniers on day trips and adventures in the woods. It works for adults and kids, making it something we fight over! It also is great for the living room when adults, who are perhaps not as nimble, are… Full review

Helinox Swivel Chair

The Helinox Swivel Chair is a comfortable chair that swivels 360 degrees with ease. It’s pretty big and heavy, which means it’s not ideal for backcountry use, but it’s great for car camping, tailgating, fishing, hunting, backyard cookouts, etc. The chair is well-made and sturdy, which makes for a pretty comfortable sit. Conditions: For nine months, I’ve used the Helinox Swivel Chair as my go-to chair for things like car camping, hunting, backyard cookouts, etc. Because of the weight and… Full review
