Easy and Light. You'll almost forget you're carrying it.
Reviewed by Robert G. - March 1, 2019

Likes: SUPER LIGHT WEIGHT, easy to assemble, surprisingly comfortable given its small and snug appearance.

Dislikes: Can be hard to get out but not unexpected. I could complain that it'd be nice if it had arm rests but who am I kidding.

Just what I needed

Maybe my favorite new backpacking item

Dislikes: Price- Thanks BCE for having this chair cheaper than bigger retailers.

Amazingly light, comfortable
Reviewed by Laura M. - December 25, 2018

Likes: This chair has been on my radar, long before the new refined version came out. I was struggling with its price point (nearly everywhere else sells it for $120). So glad i found it here cheaper. Super comfortable, and fairly lightweight, ill gladly sacrifice a lb of other gear so i can take this along!

Dislikes: My only 'dislike', I really think that for the cost of the chair, they should include the 'Ground pad' so this chair can be used on sandy/soft soils or in snow.

Worth the 1.1 lb!

Likes: -Lightweight

Dislikes: -Takes a little longer to assemble and disassemble then I would like but still not bad

Super lightweight, great for multi day hikes
Reviewed by Ken S. - October 8, 2018

Likes: Lightweight, stylish and just what a hiker wants at the end of a long day without the burden of extra weight. Sturdy enough for my 180 lbs, 6ft1in frame. Love it

Dislikes: The ends of the legs dig into soft soil and grass. Larger ball caps would work rather then selling an overpriced ground sheet as an option.

Unexpected comfort
Reviewed by Peter L. - October 6, 2018

Likes: Very easy to assemble, pack's up small, light weight, and best of all it's comfortable.

Dislikes: Don't have any dislikes yet

Great lightweight chair
Reviewed by John - September 21, 2018

Likes: I tried out several chairs at a local store before choosing to buy this one from Backcountry Edge. It had the right mix of comfort, weight, and packability. Just took it on a backpacking trip and it performed admirably. Stable and comfy (for a very lightweight chair).

Dislikes: None as of now!

VERY roomy butt cupper
