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!

Sturdy, lightweight 7000 series aluminum poles make it simple to erect the 20” x 20” x 15” Mayfly Chair and allow it to collapse down easily to stow inside a dedicated 11.5” x 4.3” x 4.3” stuff sack. Utilizing 210D ripstop nylon fabric, the chair weighs just 1.4 pounds but still safely supports up to 250 pounds. NOTE: Short-statured by design, the chair sits 2” off of the ground.

Available in your choice of colors, each Alite Designs Mayfly Chair includes a drawstring closure storage sack. Replacement slings (sold separately) are available to give your Mayfly Chair a fresh look.

  • 3-legged stable or 2-legged rock
  • Large sling for more comfort
  • Durable for everyday use
  • Packs down small to fit inside your bag, closet or car
  • Weighs only 1.4 lbs and can hold up to 250 lbs
  • Color coded for easy assembly
  • Replacement slings available (sold separately)

The most comfortable camping chair
Reviewed by Johanna H. - August 28, 2018

Likes: I tried many camping chairs before I finally settled for this one. It is very comfortable, and you sit in it for hours. It packs up very small.

Dislikes: It is light weight for such a comfortable camping chair, but I still could not carry an extra one pound for longer back country hikes.

Best of all the choices for backpacking

Rocker or chair....yay!
Reviewed by Christine C. - February 12, 2017

Likes: Can be used as a rocker or easily converted to a chair.
Packs down pretty small, good for car camping.
Appears to be durable and sturdy.
Worth the price for a little bit of campfire luxury (got it on sale).

Dislikes: Seems a little heavy for the size, if backpacking with it.
The design of the sling "seat" comes up a bit high on the sides, and can get in the way of your elbows, but this is minor.

Great backpacking chair!
