The unique Therm-a-Rest Treo Chair provides the comfort of a much larger chair in a small, compactable design. Ideal for camping, outdoor concerts or backyard lounging, the Treo Chair packs into its own tripod base for easy carry and storage.
We are taking a look at all the features and how to set up the Therm-a-Rest Treo Chair. This is an excellent camp chair that is going to be great in back yards, picnics, camp grounds, taking it to the beach. It is really easy to use and you have got really durable materials. So you can take it with you anywhere.
This chair packs down into its own case right here and the outer pieces of this case are actually the very strong composite tripod base that the chair actually stands on and this is what supports its weight. So just looking at the materials here you can really tell it is very, very strong and very durable. It is going to hold up to a lot of abuse, taking it out camping or backpacking. And it is going to hold a lot of weight. So if I kind of peel open the lid here and basically open up these three legs. But this here, again, is that case. It is also the tripod base for the chair itself. So, as you can see, really durable. This base is going to hold up to 250 pounds. The frame that is used to support your weight and used to support the sling here is four 6000 series aluminum poles. These are very durable poles. They remind me of the construction of a tent pole. So they pack down to be really small. They are very light weight, but they are also very durable and load bearing. You have four poles here and there is two that are shorter and two that are longer. So the shorter pieces are actually going to go in the front of the base here and the longer pieces are going to go in the back and they are really easy to set up.
Once you have all four poles assembled, they are really easy to just put into the base. Again, the shorter go in the front and the longer ones go into the back.
So this is your frame for setting up the sling. The sling is made of a nylon and dyneema mixture material here. So you have very, very strong materials. It is a ripstop, so, you know, you can just looking at the fabric you can see that this is really, really durable, but it is also very light weight.
Setting up the sling is really easy. There is four connection points on the sling and these are really durable pockets. So you basically stretch it over each of these four corners. When I am setting up the chair I like to stand behind it and put the front two connection point on first. There is a really nice tab on each of these points that you can, you know, get your hand in there and really stretch it over.
Because you want the sling to be really tight, it takes a little bit of elbow grease, but once you have got that tension, it is really easy to set up. You have got the third one and then you got to stretch it over the fourth connection point. So once you have the sling in there, you can see it is stretched over all four of those poles and now you are ready to relax.
Some things I really love about the Treo chair is that you get pretty much clearance from the ground. So unlike other camp chairs where they are either on the ground or they are really close to the ground, it is really easy to get in and out of this chair, because you are so high off the ground, which makes it a little bit more comfortable.
The other thing is that you have a really high back, so when you are sitting in this chair you can lean back and it is really going to support you. The back on this chair is higher than I have seen on some other, you know, really compact camp chairs as well. So really easy to get in and out of this chair. And one thing I want to mention about the feet. Turn this upside down. There is really nice nonstick feet. So on a surface like this where you could skid or you could, you know, slip, this is, you know, really nice. It is not going to slip around. You can lean back in it a little bit. It is not going to tip move around on you there. And as you can see, once you have this thing set up, it is really stable. It is not going to feel like it is going to collapse on you or anything like that. So, you know, really stable when I am sitting in it, relaxing in it, very, very comfortable camp chair.
When you want to pack up the chair, it is really easy to disassemble. So you just pull on those four tabs, take each one of the feet. Again, the base is the case for the chair. So pick it up just as it is and all you have to do is roll up the sling with the poles inside of it. Put it back into the base and you are ready to go. You can through it in a back pack, really easy to travel with and all in all it comes in a package that is around two pounds, three ounces. So, you know, definitely for car camping, for trips to the beach, throw it in your back pack and you are ready to go.
It is the Therm-a-Rest Treo Chair.
