We needed chairs that were going to hold up through the abuse of a high-milage, multi-week expedition we were embarking on. We also wanted something that was going to be comfortable to rest in after hours of driving, winching, digging, and even hiking. The chair offers a sturdy platform to rest in after long days and you need some recovery time.
We were willing to trade packing size for comfort. Compared to those cheap discout chairs you find at any box store- its packing size is quite a bit bigger- it takes up 3x the space of the $9-$12 chairs you find in a grocery store–but when it comes to comfort and reliability- it cannot even compare. For those who are plus-size guys and gals- this chair is your best buddy in camp and won’t “let you down”. HIGHLY Recommend
