Weighing in at just under 3 lbs and packing down to 5.5" x 4.75" x 15", the Leki Chiller Folding Chair is a compact, lightweight, and comfortable chair that is perfect for the camp site, festival, beach, or little league game.
We are taking a close look at the LEKI Chiller Folding Chair. This is a very convenient, very comfortable folding chair that has a small pack size. It weighs in right under three pounds, so you can definitely take it to the camp site, take it to the campfire, to the beach or whatever else you can throw at it. It has got a really stable base with the pole structure and we will take a look at that. It has got a really comfortable sling here that you in in, but everything folds up to be really small. And it has even got a convenient little beverage holder that is removable.
Set up is really simple and it is going to support the weight of up to 320 pounds. I will take off the sling here and talk about the base. So I have removed the sling here just to talk about the structure here. This reminds me of tent poles in that it is very lightweight, but also very strong and sturdy. And you have got one single hubbed design here. So each one of these poles is hubbed together and it is really simple to set up.
So you have shock corded poles. These are lightweight aluminum poles and they fold down to be really small. So that is the back portion that supports your back when you lean into the chair. And then the feet here are really nice. You do have some traction on the bottom of those feet. So if you are on the trail or just anywhere where you want that traction, even if you are in hard sand, these are going to be really great. It is going to provide a nice stable base.
So, as you can see, got everything folded down here and that pack size is nice and small for all of the weight that this supports. When you need to set everything up, since it is that hubbed design, it is really simple to just put everything together.
Everything just kind of snaps into place. So there is no guess work on how to set up the chair. Now these longer poles in the back are what supports your back. The shorter poles are in the front. And the only thing I would say that you need to watch out for for set up is making sure that these feet are all the way in those little ports. If they are out a little bit or if they are off to the side, you know, you definitely want to make sure they are stable and they are in all four of those ports. And then you are ready to put the sling on the chair.
I have got the sling here and there are four connection points and they connect up with all four of those points there. So it slides into there really easily. This is very durable material. It is going to last a long time and each of those connection points is stitched extra. You have got a lot of durable construction here on all four of those sides. So if we take a look at the fabric, you have got very durable fabric here in the sling, but the you have also got some mesh on the sides and mesh on the back to keep you nice and cool when you are hanging out in the chair.
What I normally like to do is put the front on first and then I stretch the back two over the back and that makes it really simple to set up.
It does come with an included stuff sack. So this whole chair packs down into this small size. It is really convenient to take along with you, to throw it in the car. Definitely not a backpackable option to take into the backcountry with you, but certainly taking to camp sites when you just need a place to hang out. It sits up pretty far up off the ground. You get 16 inches of clearance here. So right now I am sitting in the Breeze Chair by LEKI, which is a little bit shorter. It is 12 inches off the ground and this one sits up nice and high and you have a nice, stable base behind you. So it is really easy to get in and out of. It sits you nice and high off the ground, but with that pack size, again, it packs down really small. This stuff sack actually attaches to the front so that you have an extra little pocket that you can store some items that you wan to get your hands on there, so cell phone, wallet, keys, you can store in there and then with that little beverage holder you can spend lots of time hanging out in comfort in the LEKI Chiller Folding Chair.
