Construction changed since 2010

I bought this chair in 2010 and it has been the most comfortable bag chair I've ever used. No sagging. Seat tight as a drum with no bar at the front edge.

Problems: the rear hinge popped open occasionally and the carry bag was flimsy material, prone to quick pinholing. Also the 45" folded length can be awkward for carrying on you or in a small canoe.

The construction is now changed as of 2012. The entire aluminum bar structure of the back has been re-aligned for increased overall strength, less wobble, and the hinge made much stronger and less prone to popping open. The padded head rest has been doubled in height, reducing the amount of mesh on the chair back. And, significantly, they have remade the carry bag out of stronger material.

The bad news of the redesign: Less comfort for me because they reduced the effective depth of the seat by eliminating the flap connection between the seat and back. Nevertheless, it's still the most comfortable bag chair I know, and now stronger.

Great chair but...

Love the chair - took it camping and bairly got to sit in in as everyone else took it. Only problem I have is that the locking arm on between legs on back side comes un-done and chair kind of collapses on you. Considered sending it back as one of two chairs seems to have problem all the time - but the cost to return and replace makes me just use duct tape.

Nice chair

The price for this chair was good. I bought this for my boyfriend but he hasn't actually used it to go fishing yet. We have set it up and tried it out but not long...comfortable enough. Seems to be of good quality. Hopefully he won't have the same issues that others have had - but since we live in Ohio he won't be using it for fishing until next spring.

Good chair for all-day use and camping

Very comfortable and well-built, superb chair for campsite or all day use at a concert or picnic.

Bag strap is too short for shoulder carry.

Heavy and awkward for long-distance carry.

Drink holders accommodate only stem glasses (useless), but with a little ingenuity can be put to good use as umbrella holder.

This is a great chair

Like I said it is a great chair, I take it on my VW campouts. I belong to a VW club for campers, I allways get asked about my GCI chairs! I have 3 different models and love them all.

Great chairs!

Great for kids sporting events, outdoor concerts, backyard parties, camping -- all around great portable chair! Only downside is a relatively small holder for water bottles.

You want a folding chair this is it!

I use it for VW camping and get a lot of comments on it and where I got it.

A little bulky, worth it because it is so comfortable and great to use.
I love this chair.

Negative Reviews:

Not at all what I had expected

Not a good product at all. When you lock in the locking mechanism then go to sit in the chair the lock mechanism opens and the chair folds when you sit in it, move it over, or any actual movement at all. I bought 2 chairs and they both do it. I have to wire the lock mech. to be able to use the chair. Not impressed. I even wrote to this company about it and never heard a response at all.
A very unhappy customer

Defective Design

This chair has a defective design. The brace in the back of the chair (which is not shown on the marketing pictures) does not stay locked. When you sit down in the chair, or make the slightest movement it folds up and becomes like sitting in grocery sack. A simple change to the design of the brace would make this a great chair.

Chair locking brace defective

The locking brace between the legs in the back is supposed to keep the chair taught. the part wore out after a month of use on weekends. I am a small woman, not a football player. This is a serious design defect.

recliner NOT

The latch device in the back slips and the chair won't stay upright.

Not exactly what I expected

backrest with three reclining positions is difficult to set - just not smooth as I thought is should be
