Lightweight, super portable, versatile backpacking chair. Easy setup and take down, and packs up nice and compact.
- Easy to set up
- Not the most cushioned
I did a lot of research before choosing this chair for my backpacking trips. I wanted something that was light, packable, versatile, comfortable and tough. This chair meets all requirements.
It only weighs 21 ounces and rolls up nice and tight with a built-in strap to tighten it up. I strap it to the lid of my backpack. It is great to be able to have a nice place to rest in the middle of a backpacking trip.
The chair is super easy to set up—unroll it, fold it to whatever angle you choose and click together the adjustable straps. You can set the straps at a 45 degree angle and rock in the chair with your legs up, you can keep them at a 90 degree angle and stretch your legs out, or loosen them even more and recline a bit. I lay it out flat to serve as my camp kitchen as well.
When I'm done, I fold it back up in half (dirty side out), roll it up and cinch the strap around it.
I shopped around and was able to save a little bit by finding it on sale, but it is a mid priced chair. And it's not the most padded chair around, but for my needs, it is a perfect fit.

Saved my back.
- Easy setup
- Easy packing
Sometimes, hiking when you're a middle aged mother of three who's broken her spine in three places can be a wee bit stressful on the back.
With this chair, I can take a break anywhere and recline fully supported and comfy and rest so I can enjoy the rest of my hike. I have read that completely open, it can double up as a half sleeping pad... my jury's still out on this, lol.
It's super light and tough as nails, sets up in seconds and rolls nice and tight. I can fit mine inside my pack, or outside in the side stretch pocket and secured with the compression strap, or below or above.
