Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remarkably Pleased ... I spent ridiculous amounts of time reading reviews of all chairs in this price range. I finally took the gamble, liking that I can use as a pad for camping with sleeping bag (since I normally go with none, that will be a bonus). In short, I'm average 170lbs-180lbs and about 6'. I find that it supports me well, once I tinkered with the adjustable side arms. When I first tried It I ran for the receipt and packing to return the chair. But, again, a little tweaking and I found the balance spot. On the beach, it will actually work as a nice reclining rocker, just dig a couple sand trenches with your heels. The storage on the back is handily done too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I'm a Mom but this product isn't just for Momma's. Boy has it been useful. Useful enough I thought it was worthwhile to write a revview. :) We bring this chair on cragging days so I can have a comfy seat to feed the baby in. It lays flat so then it is perfect for diaper changes and naps. It has been a little essential piece to help me keep adventuring. Non mommy uses- Great at the campsite! Or anywhere else you need a comfy chair. Sinch up the sides and you can store loose jackets or what not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as pleased with this version of camp chair I brought the REI camp chair and loved it. Wanted to have more of them and saw this brand (Crazy Creek) was on sale so ordered three of them. I don't like this one nearly as much as the REI-brand camp chair. This one hits me in a weird place on my back, plus the back support tends to buckle a little, making it feel less secure. I still use them but I always favor the REI brand. (I have no association whatsoever with REI.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Chair This is a very comfortable chair. Steel bars in the seat keep it rigid, even on bleachers. It is so nice to be able to lean back, especially in camp, and I'm 245 lbs. My chair weighs in at 953 grams, 2.1 lbs, so it is the one luxury item I take with me on backpacking trips. There are 3 cons. Once opened, the bag is too small and you really have to roll it up tight to get it back in. I just use a strap. The bag fits a Platypus 2L Zip water container and I use it for that as I hang the Platypus in the space between my back and eternal frame pack. Rolling it up is awkward because the valve ends up on the inside of fold. So as you roll from one side, you have to have your finger inbetween the folded halves on the other side, holding down the valve to let air out as you roll. The valve is not robust. If you push on it too hard you disconnect the rubber nubbin on rubber flap from the plastic arms holding the nubbin. You have to put it back together carefully. So just don't push too hard. Putting the valve on the back of the chair would be better than on the seat.
