I saw someone camping with one like this Alite Monarch Butterfly Ultralight Travel and Camping Chair - YouTube It was a different make but just the same, (just found this one now while looking to post on here) I tried it out and it felt really comfy, just what you need at the end of the day. I was sold on it straight away until he said it cost him 90 euros in Holland but now i've found these i'll look at getting one.
I got mine from Bever at €79 a bit pricy (to say the least), but when space is a premium then there aren't too many options available.
One of my main criteria was being able to use a chair sitting inside the porch area of my Khyam Biker tent. There is nothing as uncomfortable as trying to read a mag or a book scrunched up on the deck or in the sack. Over the years I have found nothing either adaptable enough or long lasting, ..........until I discovered the Kermit with leg extensions. What a great bit of kit! easy to roll up and transport, beautifully hand made in proper timber and stainless steel. Without the extensions I can sit comfortably inside the tent, with the extensions it's exactly the right height to prevent leg cramps after a long day in the saddle, and damn comfortable. Worth every cent ( including the import duty).
Most accolades for the best Camp Chair are for the Kermit or similar which we agree are great... for solo riders... The weight is way (weigh) too much for two up riders. For the light weight seats close to the ground, these are difficult for us old folk to dig ourselves out of after a good feed and a bottle of wine. Somewhere on our travels we will locate the ultimate seat...reasonable height, with a back-rest weighing under 1 kg.. Surely with the alloys available today this would not be too hard to do. Our current alloy stools weigh less than 1 kg for the two... a back rest would make these perfect...Maybe we need to find a fabricator to bend some alloy pipe and attache with some suitable material.
A little while back on this post we mentioned Coleman Woodsman Chairs. Folds down like a stool but with a back and weighs 1.78 pounds. Has anyone had any experience with these!!??? Cheers and thanks for all the feed back.. K & C
in the photo in romania, the empty chair top left, thats the sort of thing i take everywhere with me.
yes they are big packed up (but light)
yes they dont last very long (although you should expect a couple of seasons out of one)
but a kermit is something crazy like £130 to get to UK, this is £5 and replaceable in any supermarket or petrol station.
its light and waterproof so it can strap anywhere on the bike.
its a comfy, full sized seat that doesnt need a balancing act, a sober pilot, or einstein to put up/take down
