I love this chair

I got this chair to replace one I have had for six years. I really like that this one has a back rest. My previous one did not have a back rest and what a difference having one made. After long days sitting at the lake my back did not hurt a bit. I found the shoulder system was a great idea. Grab it and give it a yank and the chair folds up and your ready to go. It is a bit cumbersome, but not so bad that I wouldn't buy it again. The feet are big enough that they don't sink into the ground. A couple of times I had to find a rock or a piece of wood to put under the front foot when I was on a slope. The size of the feet made it easy and stable.

Surprisingly comfortable

I've owned two of these chairs for a few years now and bring one on just about every troop campout that doesn't involve a hike in. Its small size would seem to indicate a less than comfortable chair but I think it's more comfortable than many full size folding chairs I've tried or own. I'm in good shape and I find that my posterior fits well into the triangular seat without feeling pressure on my thighs along the edge of the fabric. The seat back fits perfectly into the small of my back providing comfortable support that's lacking from folding tripod seats. It's small size and shoulder sling make it easy to carry.

Super Convenient

I like the convenience of bringing this chair to a festival or concert. For a shorter person or most women, the strap needs to be tightened for carrying. The shorter strap will avoid the chair hitting your leg. This isn't hard to do, but once you get to your destination, the strap needs to be loosened in order for it to fully open and be comfortable. This was annoying, but workable. Aside from having to move the strap to different lengths, this chair is great! Very comfortable, has some padding and the back rest is great!

Really worth the price

My nephews used these as their only seats at the 2011 Boy Scout Jamboree. They had to walk miles to reach their campsite. So, the lighter the weight of anything the better. They were well impressed with these -- mostly for the weight, but also said they were "pretty comfortable." They have used them for campouts and get-togethers (when weight was not a factor) since then. Just said maybe a higher back support that, somehow, would not increase the overall size would be better. But liked them a lot.

Great for what I needed

My girlfriend needed a compact chair with a back on it for waiting in the horrifically long lines at Comic-Con in San Diego, and this thing did the trick. Can't speak to it's stability on uneven surfaces, but on flat ground it's comfy and light enough to carry around with the shoulder strap that is all part of the design. Using a mesh material for the back might have saved some weight.

Great little chair to save your back!

I use this chair when I will be standing in long lines or at the Street Fair and there is no where to sit. Used it @ Comic-Con this year. It was great! The only NEGATIVE comment, it is HEAVY (4 lbs). Everyone asked where I bought it. Do not buy if you are expecting a heavy duty small chair. I think anything over 200 lbs for this chair is too much.

Wonderfully surprised!

I bought this seat primarily to use with a set of tripod-mounted binoculars -- the binoculars need a steady platform and holding them rarely works -- the tripod places them an an awkward level, so sitting is preferable. This seat is perfect! Comfortable, steady, and holds my weight -- I am 6-2, 230 pounds. I am totally pleased. Campmor products are always reliable and first rate.

Way Better than Sitting on a Log

I bought this for my son for Boy Scout camping trips. There is a similar chair without a back that is quite a bit lighter and packs smaller. We bought this for just $7 more, because of the back rest and to us the back rest is definitely worth the extra bulk. Also, my son loves the cup holder.

Works great, comfortable

I use this chair at archery tournaments, wearing a quiver at my side, so armless works super for me. Seems very stable. Has a little cushioning even, in the seat. Very comfy, easy to carry and use, tho I wouldn't pack it probably hiking or backpacking--too heavy for that, unless you're using llamas or horses.
Winnie4 at REI on 08/08/2013


replaced another model I had whose plastic part broke and happy to see that part is metal on this model which I'm hoping will hold up better. too heavy to be considered a light alternative to an armchair but needed armless to play my guitar and hoping the extra weight translates to extra strength.

Negative Reviews:

Great, until the fabric rips

I needed a stool for plein air painting and I chose this stool over REI's similar stool because it felt sturdier and more robust (purchased in store). But with extended use it ended up being very uncomfortable. The fabric seat is supported in such a way that it cuts off circulation to your legs if you're sitting for long periods of time (an hour or more). Even worse-- After about a couple months of weekend use (2x per week, max) the fabric seat started ripping (I returned it). I weigh 220lbs, the max weight is 250lbs. This shouldn't have happened. Also the feet don't accommodate for uneven ground; this feature should be implemented.
If you're small (under 175lbs) and you're only sitting for periods of 5-10 minutes, this stool may be great. Otherwise choose something better or opt to stand (as I have).

Neutral Reviews:

Functional and economic.

I primarily use this product as seating in my camper van. It is easy to set up and the height fits my table. They should include a carrying/storage bag, for a few bucks more.
Fred & Pachy Blanc at Campmor on 04/04/2012

Caveat emptor

These chairs are made pretty good. But if you are a person of size, say 6', 200#, they are not very comfortable for more than 5 minutes at a time.
Gunslinger at Campmor on 06/06/2011

Good, compact seat, but not so durable

Seams on seat are separating but the seat is still holding up. Did so on first outing and I'm 180 lbs so not really happy about that.
