It broke. On the fourth trip, a connector broke. The frame was replaced under warranty without hassle. Next trip was months later—a corner of the cover let go.

Pros

  • Seat height
  • Packed size
  • Price

Cons

  • Durability

I bought this for motorcycle camping where weight is even more important than weight. I bought the steel version, hoping it would be stronger than aluminum. The plastic connector broke first.

It packs much lighter and smaller than the Kermit Chair and is far more comfortable unless leg extensions are added to the much more expensive Kermit.

My aged joints can actually get out of this chair easily. The seller says the seat height is at least an inch or so higher than competition. I wish it had worked.

I turned the cover around and will use it with the bad corner on the bottom where it will work. When it breaks the next time it will go in the trash. At $40 it was worth a try, but a five trip lifespan makes it expensive.

I have no relationship with this or any other chair company.
