Rated 5 out of 5 by from The "Xtra" is for "Xtra comfy!" My wife and I spent a day searching for camp chairs and REI turned out to have solutions for both our criteria. This is the chair she settled on - she describes it as a "chair-and-a-half for camping." It's roomy enough for her plus one of our kids to sit on, and with a weight rating of 400lbs (400? INSANE!), we're not worried about it falling apart any time soon. The only down-side (not necessarily a "con"), could be that the enormously oversized cup holders don't hold small beverages very well (eg. a beer bottle). The bag is roomy enough to get the chair in and out easily, and it feels like a much sturdier construction than the "sporting store" variety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Big Mans Chair" This chair was a replacement of my old chair. Mind you this the perfect chair for a man my size 6'5" / 260 lbs. Believe me I shopped and looked hard for my replacement. This is a little pricy but you have no good choice. If you go cheap you get less durability, style, bag cover flimsy,and features. All in all the chair is comfortable with the side pouch as a extra for your book, flashlight, storage, etc. This is definitely not a back packing chair, I use the REI Trail Stool for that. Other than that I would recommend it any where else you go. Enjoy! -Big JOhn

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Comfortable I was looking for a fold-up chair that won't break quickly. This chair meets that requirement very well. I'm impressed with the sturdy construction. It's also roomy - more than I needed. On the negative side, these are quite a bit heavier than the inexpensive fold-up chairs sold at discount stores. I was hoping for a chair back that was high enough to also be a headrest. This chair back isn't that tall. I can slide down in the chair and lean my head back, but that wouldn't be comfortable for long events. Overall it's a good chair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chair, but it was just too big! We bought this chair for camping and soccer matches. It was great and we liked that it is rated for 400 pounds. I'm nowhere near this rate, but the kids always like to 'share' our chairs. The bad part is it was just too big to deal with, especially when trying to return it to the carrying bag (fit was too tight). So we returned it for the Camp X Chair. I would recommend this, but you have to be willing to deal with these issues. Also, it became rather heavy when carrying it out on the fields, especially when compared to other options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get ready to save your seat. Get ready to fight for your seat. Every time that I got up to stoke the fire, go to the cooler, or grab something from my tent, somebody would take my seat. They preferred this chair to their own. It's almost like having a love seat to yourself. It's pretty sturdy. All of the seams and connections are more durable than folding chairs found else where. That's what sold me on this chair. Plus REI backs up it's gear. There are only two minor cons. One would be my preference for a higher back. But it's so comfy that I'll get over it. Two would be one of the plastic grommets have shown signs of wear after my second trip with it. I'm a bigger boy, and I'm hoping it's just settling in. If not, I'm sure REI will back up this otherwise excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Much Chair for your Money!! My husband and I are tall, able body people and these chairs are more than big enough to seat us comfortably! The back is slightly padded and the cupholders are big enough for a cup with a handle to fit securely. I bought two on sale and keep bragging about how nice they are that I would have paid full price no questions asked! They fold up like a dream. While in their sleeve, there is a sling to go over your shoulder and a hand loop on the end to pull them out of your car or to lift them straight up. I cannot say enough good things about these chairs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chair for Many Uses This recent purchase now gives us 3 of these great chairs. They are very well made and we love the large cup holders and the side pockets. They are very easy to fold up when needed. We took them to the beach recently, use them on our deck and have even used them as extra seating for guests. Love the fact that they dry out quickly if it should rain. They are very roomy as they will hold up to 400 lbs. So far they only come in blue or grey, but red would be a nice option also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide and roomy We wanted chairs that could be carried easily over the shoulder when folded. This did the trick. The chairs folded up and went back in to their sleeves easier than I expected they would. The chair is really nice and wide so it is very comfortable for larger people like myself. The only thing that would make it more comfortable was if the back came up higher to support the neck when you lean back to enjoy the sunshine.

What height is the bottom of the seat (the part that you sit your bottom on) from the ground? I am quite short and am trying to figure out how comfortable this would be for me. Thanks

Asked by: AngelaNicole
The lowest point on the REI Camp Xtra Chair seat is about 13 inches off the ground.

Where can I get spare parts for this chair? One of the top front plastic connectors (where the tubes come together) has broken and I'd like to replace the part rather than throw the whole chair away.

Asked by: ascendist
Spare parts are not available for the Camp Xtra Chair.
