Wanted: Camping chair - packable
« on: May 18, 2022, 11:04:12 am »
Not many hosts answering requests this year so looking at lots of camping in the Sierra Cascade mountains.  Getting older and would sure enjoy sitting down in a chair in the evenings.

I've been using one of the bottom-of-the-line Crazy Creek chairs.  They weigh about a pound and can be rolled up for attaching to the bike.  I use a velcro strap to lock mine down in a roll.  Way less than $100 if you can't fine something used on this forum.

Thanks, Mr. Bent:
I gave up waiting and bought a cheapo online that comes in a soft case.  Tried it out last night and it feels good.  I'll get some reading done for sure.  It's a few pounds heavier than yours but I travel heavy and don't worry about weight.

Dude, that's DEEEELUX!  Hah.  Re. weight:  My wife and I bike tour with our dog, so a few pounds here and there are no biggie for regular bike tourers.  Enjoy.  Time in camp will be so much better.

Jack ~ Like the little discs on the feet that'll keep the legs from sinking into dirt that might sometimes be a little soft.
Going to look at again ... I just might end up purchasing one just like yours.
Wish you great touring, relaxing at camps & good reading : ).

My latest bike tour begins today by way of a train to California.  After a few days in the desert during the present heat wave, I will send you an update.  Had no idea that I might become an influencer.

Hope you found the perfect chair. I’m a pretty light tourer and one of the luxuries I carry is the Helinox Chair Zero. I much prefer it over the picnic tables at most camps. Also nice to have to get out of the sun on hot days.

Yo Jack ~ On the outside chance that you have not seen this "Chair" topic string that was recently active ...
it offers some general information about 'packable' types of chairs and experiences experienced   ;)  ....
