  1. Lol I don’t really know too much about camping, but I can say that I’ve always wanted to go. In your bio you state that you went for 10 days to the Kenyan bush, what was that like? I can’t even imagine how cool that must have been honestly.

    1. Yes, camping is something everyone should do at least once in their life. Thank you for asking about my experience in the Kenyan bush. I really appreciate it. It. Was. Magical. Every night we would watch the sunset and stare up at the stars. The camp food was quite delicious (it was a big group). The Kenyans I was with were nothing but friendly and loving. I look at life in a whole different light because of it. Thank you very much for asking. If you like, you can read a bit more about me in my short bio.

  2. I love a good outdoor chair, especially ones which do not break easily! These look like they can have many uses, including sitting and watching local sport games at the park!

    I might pick up one! Thanks Alex for another great review, I’ll share your post!

    1. I really appreciate it Jeremy! These chairs do a great job. They are lightweight and durable, making them a long term investment. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Yes Eli, these chairs are very therapeutic. Once you sit in them, you will realize just how comfortable they are. These chairs are waterproof, but not fireproof. If you are concerned for them around a camp fire or a backyard fire pit, then I would encourage you to not put the chair too close. Thank you for your question and I hope you have a great day!

  3. Alex, I truly didn’t know there was such a thing as camping chairs like these with so much variety! You make a good point that these are a little pricey, but I agree that the materials likely account for this. The increased longevity probably outlasts many other chairs on the market, I’d be curious to see how they compare.

    1. Yes Donovan, these chairs feature quite a variety. While expensive, they are worth the money because of their comfort and durability. It would be good to do a comparison with other chairs on the market. I will look into that. Thank you for sharing and I hope you have a great day!

  4. I was looking at the chairs and at first glance, they all look the same. The difference mainly in the legs which can affect everything else as far as being comfortable. I think I might have an issue with resting the back of the knees on the bar. I do not see where the therapeutic component comes into play. And I think it is too expensive for a chair like this. I cannot base an honest opinion just looking at it though. I will have to try it out first.

    1. Those are some very good points to raise Maurice. You are right that it is expensive and they do look the same. However, because of its lightweight design and mesh seating, it is quite comfortable. They also differ in their leg structure.

      If you have to take a seat in it and an in person look first before you buy, then that is understandable for its price. I encourage you to do that. Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  5. Thank you Alex for finding these lovely looking chairs. I have never seen them before but quite often find the smaller camping chairs quite uncomfortable and very unstable. Do you know if you can get these in the UK at all? The price is a bit steep I think but do you think they are worth the money?

    1. Gail, you are right that these chairs are quite comfortable and look nice. You can indeed get them in the UK. They are expensive, but worth the money. With anyone of these chairs, you get comfort, durability, and versatility. Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day.

  6. Hey I am a tall athletic guy at 6’6″ and 260lbs.. Will these chairs handle my weight. I always try portable chairs like these and they don’t make it through the year. I’d love to have a good one!

    1. Because of your size, the chair one, chair two rocker, beach chair, and sunset chair are your options to handle your weight. The tallest out of those is the sunset chair, so I would recommend that chair for you. They do come with a 3 year warranty from the manufacturer if you are worried about longevity.

      It is expensive, but these are not your standard chairs, which come with a lot of padding and little durability. The Big Agnes Helinox camp chairs were carefully designed. Thank you for your question and I hope you make it a great day.
