Replacement poles for REI Flexlite Chair

(2) of the poles that attach to the base of the chair have bent beyond my ability to bend back. I feel even if was was successful at bending them back the poles would either snap or be extremely compromised. I've tried searching for repair parts for the chair but have found no such luck. Is there anywhere to find replacememt parts as opposed to having to buy and entirely new chair for something so easily repairable?

@Jay718 Thanks for reaching out!

We're sorry to hear that you are having this issue with your REI Flexlite Chair. Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have any way to procure replacement parts for this item. While quite a long shot, you could keep your eye out at a used gear sale at your local REI store to see if there is a set of poles missing a chair seat that could complete the set for you. Additionally, we have had another thread, Can I get a replacement nylon seat for a flexlite chair?, regarding the need for replacement parts about this product as well. We appreciate bringing the need for replacement parts to our attention, this feedback is important to us and we are passing it along to our teams. 

Hopefully this helps, thanks!

@Jay718 - If you would like our poles, we trashed the nylon seat and would love to not put the poles in a landfill...

@kg1 - I'd be interested in your poles. i have a flexite chair. i left my poles at the state park and they are no where to be found.  please direct message me.


@kg1 - I would happily send you $40 for those replacement poles


@Jay718 - Did you give away your old poles - I’m in the same predicament and looking for replacement poles.
