Cascade Mountain Tech Compact Low Profile Outdoor Folding Camp Chair is a very stable and light chair with a carry bag and an incredible price tag.
Key features & benefits
- Incredibly affordable.
- Easy to use.
- Carry bag included.
What type of a camping chair is this
There is lots of information given already in the name of this chair. So it is a folding type, you make it ready in seconds and equally fast you take it away and fold.
The term ‘low profile’ simply means it is very low, the lowest point is at some 9 inches (23 cm) above the ground.
The word ‘compact’ describes the fact that its packed size is quite good for such a type. It packs down to (L x D) 26 x 8 in (66 x 20 cm).
Note that it comes with a carry bag (shown below) so you can keep it clean from dust when stored at home, and you can carry it attached to the shoulder.
Note also that the chair has solid and padded armrests, and they are very angled forward.
Who is it for
Capacity-wise, the chair supports the weight of up to 250 lb (113 kg). So this is quite a modest value but it is typical. If you need something much stronger, check my list with folding chairs, some have the capacity of 800 lb.
Weight-wise, with its 6.56 lb (3 kg) this is a lightweight chair for such a type. You will see below how it compares with some similar chairs from other brands. But if you need something backpack-portable, check these ultra-lightweight backpacking chairs, all below 1 kg of weight.
Size-wise, the dimensions are good, see in the specifications below. Bear in mind this is a very low chair, see the picture below, so perhaps not suitable for elderly people. But it has solid armrests and this helps to get in and out.
Materials & construction
The frame is steel and aluminum and the chair is very low, so the center of gravity is close to the ground and this is a very stable construction. This is helped with its massive feet which are such that the chair will not sink considerably even if you use it on the sand.
The fabric is some synthetic, a breathable mesh in the middle and the border area around is a solid fabric. The feet are made of plastic and very durable, see the picture. All the screws are stainless steel. The back is at a reasonable angle, but as I said above, the chair is very low.

Good and less good features
Here is my short summary:
- Great price.
- Very stable.
- Great quality.
- Very easy to use.
- Low for some users.
- No cup holder.
The price & rating
The chair is built in three different colors and the price seems to be affected by this. But in any case, it is in the range $30 – 38 on Amazon. I doubt you will find many chairs that could match this.
The chair is popular and it has been on the market for a few years already so there are many reports everywhere. On Amazon alone there are more than 180 reports and the average rating is incredibly high 4.6/5.
Now, my rating is lower, but I use the same criteria for all chairs here in the site. So it is best to compare the rating and not to focus on the absolute value of the numbers.
My rating breakdown of the Cascade Mountain Tech Compact Chair:
- Weight: 6 lb 9 oz (6.56 lb; 3 kg).
- Capacity: 250 lb (113 kg).
- Assembled dimensions (W x L x H): 19 x 19 x 22 in (48 x 48 x 56 cm).
- Packed size (L x D): 26 x 8 in (66 x 20 cm).
