He ain't heavy, he's my chair
Verified Buyer Reviewed by up the river from Ohio on Tuesday, June 15, 2010
Ok--so I read all the reviews of this chair, and I did some thinking, and looking around at all the fold up chairs I could find. The main gripe seems to be that this is a heavy chair. But, it does hold 300 pounds... so, wouldn't you want it to be 'heavy'?

  • Great Chair
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by echostar from Michigan on Friday, July 27, 2018
    The chair is very comfortable, The solid arms are great. Cupholder works good.

    Just hope you don't have to carry it a long distance ----- a little heavy.
  • Sturdy but not that comfortable. :/
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Scott from Sanford MI on Monday, August 21, 2017
    I have an alps tent that I absolutely love. I was guessing I would love this chair made by them too. It's a nice chair with the exception that the angle of the seat and back are wrong somehow. The bottom sits flat. Just not comfortable. Great chair for your mother in law.

    I haven't taken it on any adventures yet, but it seems sturdy, and is definitely comfortable for my petite frame.....
  • I wanted to like it
    Reviewed by Kkdi from Indiana on Monday, June 26, 2017
    Bought two chairs along with the ALPS tent (which I love) but the chairs, not so much. I found that they just leaned back too far for my 5'3" frame. I felt like I couldn't sit too long without feeling strain in my neck as I tried to lean forward. With that lean, they need neck pillows.
  • leisure chair success!

    easy to handle (take out and put away in bag), lightweight, great rust/pumpkin color, weird rods digging in the back, no seams digging into legs, nice relaxing angle but upright enough to eat....excellent purchase!

  • “The color of the frame is aluminum, rather than black in the prior version of this chair that STP carried. The fabric also looks different in the Khaki. Is it the same chair with a different color frame, or is the fabric thinner (and cheaper) than the previous version?”
    Asked by TexasMom from Texas on 1/29/2018 2:27:15 PM
    • Unfortunately I am not able to accurately answer your question as I was not able to find an older version to compare it to.

  • “I am 6'-1" and my camp chairs have a low back. For someone with my height, will it allow me to rest my had on the back?”
    Asked by Traylwokker from SoCal on 7/7/2016 11:55:34 PM
    • These chairs are extra wide, and while the back is higher than any other camp chair we own, it's not tall enough to rest your head on it. However, the chair offers lots of support. We love them.
      Answered on 7/8/2016 6:28:55 AM by CathyS from Michigan
    • No, I don't think so. This chair is very comfortable, but it does not include a headrest.

    • I am 6'2" and am not able to rest my head comfortably.

    • I'm that same height and I use the chair regularly. It's not tall enough to rest your head on the back. Great chair though.....

    • You can rest your head on the back if you slouch down a bit. My husband is 6' and the top of the back is about equal to his shoulders. It is higher than most camp chairs.

  • “When seating in the chair - are you able to rest your head back in the chair?”
    Asked by Michelle from IL on 7/10/2015 12:10:37 AM
    • No.
      Answered on 7/18/2015 11:08:49 AM by desertguy from Los Angeles
  • “I have a bad back and poorly made camp chairs torture my back, especially as they get older and the seat fabric begins to sag, and there is therefore zero lumbar support. I do realize that a camp chair does not have true lumbar support. Does this chair support the low back or does it allow the low back to curve towards the back with no support? ”
    Asked by Melissa the rafter from Colorado on 1/2/2015 12:35:47 PM
    • This is a very substantial camp chair.It is well designed and solidly built. One sits securely largely because the frame is heavy and rigid. There is definitely some give to the way the fabric is cut - my partner and I both feel we supported and there is 100 pounds difference.

      I am sure you could easily tuck in a pillow or dry bag or stuff sack to provide some additional support.

      Since you seem to be all about rafting, I will say that I am not sure that I would want to carry this on a raft.

    • I have arthritis in my lower spine and this chair seems to be supportive, but not as much as a pillow might provide. Its roomy size and solid construction are what appealed most to me and the fabric is not stretchy so that what you sit in now will be what you sit in next year as well. I bought a second because of its construction and comfort.
      Answered on 1/2/2015 2:24:41 PM by OCULUS from Rensselaer, NY
    • Well, I've had two back surgeries (got hit by a backhoe in the late eighties, and had two separate disc removal surgeries in the L4-L5 region of the spine), & so far I have been happy with the chair (bought a second one after purchasing & trying the first). The way the chair is designed is the seat has a bar on each side from the front to sticking maybe 1/2" out of the rear material to make the back more of a straight up-and-down tightness on the back material rather than the slope you would expect on a beach chair sort of arrangement. So, it tends to give more of a rigidity than you normally encounter. I have been through a few chairs (bought a Kermit some years ago and the jury is still out on it as I bought it for when I use my motorcycle, although I do take it camping), and so far this is the one I like to take. It's not a light chair, I think it's well constructed. I will attach a photo to give you some appreciation of the chair construction. It doesn't have any bars going across the back, but like I mentioned earlier - the seat construction kind of makes it superfluous to add anything else. You're not going to have perfect posture in the chair, but I think you will be comfortable as the material stays tight in a supportive manner from the seat up.
      Happy New Year!

    • You might still want a small pillow for total comfort but I find this chair to have the best back support of any I've used. This is my all-time favorite camp chair!
      Answered on 1/2/2015 3:50:42 PM by TnBsMom from Colorado
    • This is by far the best camp chair in terms of offering back support without the traditional sag found in most. Due to the solid construction, I would warn that this is not a chair that you will want to pack-in to a remote site as it is heavy. I think you will be very pleased with this chair.

  • “Does the frame cross over under the seat or does it sag in the center? Thanks for any info!”
    Asked by Sonora Golfer from Sonora, CA on 12/7/2014 8:01:14 PM
    • The frame doesn't touch the seat of the chair. The seat is more like a sling supported at
      The edges, not in the middle. It's the most comfortable of this type of chair we've used.
      Answered on 12/7/2014 8:09:09 PM by TnBsMom from Glenwood Springs, CO
    • Facing the setup chair, there is a vertical X facing you under the seat,
      connecting the arms and the legs, with a corresponding X in the rear
      of the chair. There are no supports that come in contact with any of
      the seat, or back. It's kind of a sloop design, that when the chair is set up
      you sitting in it provides the tautness of the material. I have a bad back (two
      surgeries lower back), and was satisfied with mine. It doesn't give you
      perfect posture as you naturally slump a little. But, I sit in mine to relax.
      Hope this is helpful for you. I ordered a second one, after the first for
      my late teen son (no complaints).
      Answered on 12/7/2014 9:29:52 PM by yetijoe from Nebraska
    • I forgot to add that it does have bars on the very
      sides of the seat, but these do not come in contact
      with my body - they just tighten up the material for
      When you sit down in it.
      Answered on 12/7/2014 9:34:30 PM by yetijoe from Nebraska
    • It does not cross over, but the fabric is taught/does not sag. These are extremely comfortable.
      Answered on 12/7/2014 9:55:10 PM by bobcatpilot from Ohio
    • Mine is packed away, but to my recollection, the frame members are along the edges of the seating fabric, not under it. Or put another way, at 215# I don't "bottom out" against any crossing frame.

      I liked the first one so much, I ordered a second.
