The lightweight, compact Alite Designs Mayfly Chair offers versatile comfort for camping, backpacking, outdoor concerts, beach trips or backyard lounging. A front “foot” grants stability and can be removed to enable the chair to function like a low-riding rocker!
I’m relaxing here in the Alite Designs Mayfly Chair. This is an extremely packable, extremely lightweight, yet very strong camp chair that provides a little bit of extra comfort when you are hanging out by the campfire, at the campsite. You can take it to a concert, take it to the beach, hang out in the backyard. It is lightweight and small enough that you could even take it backpacking if you are willing to carry the weight with you. It weighs in right around 1.4 pounds.
So the sling that I am sitting in here is extremely comfortable. It is made out of 210 denier rip stop nylon, so you do have a lot of durability with this sling. It is comfortable. It moves with you as you move around and it is lightweight enough and packs down really small. But with that 210 denier fabric it is very strong, so it is going to last a long time. And then the frame behind me here is made out of 7000 series aluminum. You have got aluminum poles. They are shock corded poles, so they are hubbed in one hub and it is really easy to set up.
So, basically, all you do is you pack these down when you are ready to set the chair up. You make sure all the poles are connected and the little pockets for the poles to attach to the sling are color coded. So you just attach them where you need to and you are ready to relax.
Now there is two ways to use the chair. I have got it set up with this front bar so that I have just a nice stable base here. But if you want to, you can make it a little bit lighter weight and actually remove this front bar. And that is able to give you kind of a rocking chair type of motion. So, you know, if you want to leave that behind, you can, but it is just really comfortable. I can move around in this chair. I can sit up. I can lean back and it is going to provide just all of that comfort that you need. It sits up a couple of inches off of the ground so it definitely beats sitting directly on the ground. It gives you a nice comfortable back rest. So this is a chair that I would take with me anywhere and just have a comfortable place to sit. It is the Alite Designs Mayfly Chair.
