Great Chair

This is a very comfortable chair. Steel bars in the seat keep it rigid, even on bleachers. It is so nice to be able to lean back, especially in camp, and I'm 245 lbs. My chair weighs in at 953 grams, 2.1 lbs, so it is the one luxury item I take with me on backpacking trips.

There are 3 cons. Once opened, the bag is too small and you really have to roll it up tight to get it back in. I just use a strap. The bag fits a Platypus 2L Zip water container and I use it for that as I hang the Platypus in the space between my back and eternal frame pack.

Rolling it up is awkward because the valve ends up on the inside of fold. So as you roll from one side, you have to have your finger inbetween the folded halves on the other side, holding down the valve to let air out as you roll.

The valve is not robust. If you push on it too hard you disconnect the rubber nubbin on rubber flap from the plastic arms holding the nubbin. You have to put it back together carefully. So just don't push too hard.

Putting the valve on the back of the chair would be better than on the seat.

Remarkably Pleased ...

I spent ridiculous amounts of time reading reviews of all chairs in this price range. I finally took the gamble, liking that I can use as a pad for camping with sleeping bag (since I normally go with none, that will be a bonus). In short, I'm average 170lbs-180lbs and about 6'. I find that it supports me well, once I tinkered with the adjustable side arms. When I first tried It I ran for the receipt and packing to return the chair. But, again, a little tweaking and I found the balance spot. On the beach, it will actually work as a nice reclining rocker, just dig a couple sand trenches with your heels. The storage on the back is handily done too.

I'm a Mom but this product isn't just for Momma's. Boy has it been useful. Useful enough I thought it was worthwhile to write a revview. :)

We bring this chair on cragging days so I can have a comfy seat to feed the baby in. It lays flat so then it is perfect for diaper changes and naps. It has been a little essential piece to help me keep adventuring.

Non mommy uses- Great at the campsite! Or anywhere else you need a comfy chair. Sinch up the sides and you can store loose jackets or what not.

Good, quality camp chair

I am a Scoutmaster in a troop with an active outdoor program. I have been using the Crazy Creek original chair for years, and recommend it to others. Great as a chair, of course, but also to extend the length of your sleeping pad, or as a kneeling pad for such tasks as fire-building. It fits in the upper compartment of my (large) backpack, and I have carried it on backpacking treks.

This chair is awesome!

This chair just withstood 6 days of use and abuse in the boundary waters of northern Minnesota. It was great for using as a paddling chair in the canoe, easy for attaching to our backpacks for portages, was used as a door mat for our tent, and for evenings around the campfire or short stops during the trip. I wish I had 4 instead of 2!

perfect chair for everywhere

I use it mostly in stadiums watching soccer so not sitting right on the aluminum. Weather is variable and I like that a fleece blanket easily slips in this. Got this for my 75-year-old mom since it is so lightweight. People ALWAYS ask where they can get one.

It's great to have a seat that takes up little space in the car, and can be easily used.

Good but not for Kayak Camping

I ordered this for kayak camping but it was way too bulky. It's nice but not suited for the kayak. I swapped it out for the Crazy Creek Hex 2.0. which is lighter, more compact, and just as comfy. Campmor was great to deal with on the exchange. Thanks!
