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

Stansport Aluminum Camp Stool

The Stansport Aluminum Camp Stool provides a comfortable sit for only a few bucks. If you are willing to add 17 ounces to your pack in order to have a more pleasant experience in camp, then this is a stool worth investing in. A year ago I spent a week on the Ozark Trail with another hiker from my area, "Astro." Riding on the top of his pack was this stool. As breaks occurred, I would be scoping for the perfect log to sit on, while Astro simply reached over his head, pulled his chair out, and sat… Full review

Klymit Cush Seat

A super lightweight pad, that packs down tiny, when you want a little something between your tush and the ground. On most day hikes, I like to have a little something to sit on when I am having lunch or chilling creek-side. For years, I have used a Therm-a-Rest Z-seat, a compact closed cell mat for that. But sometimes, when going fast and light with a small pack, I don't really have space for it. I kept getting emails from Klymit offering the Cush Seat pad "for free. You just pay the shipping."… Full review

REI Flexlite Chair

I overlooked the wobble in favor of size and weight. However, my mesh developed a rip, not due to weight (I'm 160 lbs) or misuse. There is NO customer service! These chairs are not cheap, and there are NO resources for replacement parts. REI will not replace them after one year. Youngone Corp who manufactures the chair is impossible to contact. There is NO customer service or even an email. So they are essentially a $90 throwaway. Shame on those that preach sustainability or carbon footprint.    … Full review

Therm-a-Rest Trekker Chair Kit

The Trekker Chair Kit is a relatively light and supportive supplement to your air mattress so you can lounge around camp at the end of a long day. It packs away in a small roll, adapts to different sized pads, and provides decent lower back support. It could be a bit taller in the back, and is usable but not overly comfortable on its own without a pad. As it’s a seat on the ground, it fits well for lounging around in your shelter but would get dirty sitting around camp and takes a little while… Full review
