What this is about

Here you have a folding chair with a very specific patented design (patent #US 10,010,179) and currently, there is nothing similar to this on the market.

It opens and closes like an umbrella so when packed it is small in all dimensions. It measures (L x D) 13 x 3.4 inches (33 x 8.9 cm). They describe it as bottle-sized, so below you can see it next to a bottle to realize this is almost true.

The chair comes ready to use, so just open its Velcro strap and then push the release button on the bottom, this allows the legs to spread. Then extend its telescopic upper tubes. They write about 5-seconds setup, well, make it 15, this is still fast enough and you can call it an instant chair.

To close, do the opposite, there are small pop-up buttons on each of the upper tubes, so press and collapse the tubes. After that press the main bottom button to fold the legs.

Below you can see how it looks from the side, the backrest is quite short and the frame looks strong.

They have already had a chair with similar features a few years ago, it was under the name Go Chair and it was slightly lighter mainly due to a bit thinner fabric. So if you still have this chair, no need to buy this new version, they are almost the same.

The materials

The frame is aircraft-grade anodized aluminum, and it includes 4 legs and 4 top poles where the seat is attached. The hub element is the most important part here, and this is also aluminum, you can see it in the pictures below as that yellowish part.

The feet are a non-skid hard rubber. The fabric is a ripstop ballistic nylon. You have double stitching for durability. So this is all a high-level craftsmanship and durable material are used in the construction.

Who is it for

Regarding the weight, this is  a very light chair with its 3.65 lb (1.66 kg). The packed size is excellent, you have seen it already. So it is indeed backpack-portable as you see from the picture below.

But this is not a backpacking ultralight chair, check this list to see how light those chairs can be. I have included it in my list of folding chairs.

Regarding the dimensions, the picture below reveals what you have. So the chair is with a very low seat, it is at around 12 inches (30 cm) above ground, and the overall dimensions are (W x L x H) 24 x 24 x 26 inches (61 x 61 x 66 cm). So there is no high backrest here and there are no armrests. It will keep you off the ground but comfort is a bit limited.

Quite low seat and short backrest.

Regarding the capacity, with the official 300 lb (136 kg) capacity this chair is quite typical, but when you see its size and its packed size, this looks impressive. In any case, this capacity is good enough for most of the users.

Regarding the price, the chair may look a bit expensive but this is indeed a unique construction, there is nothing similar on the market. So this is a reasonable price for the value.

    IMPORTANT: I just bought two (2) of these and initially had a difficult time get the legs to lock into place (after the first deployment) which, I leaned through trial and error, was because we already had the seat supports (upper “arms”) extended. For whatever reason, the “arms” must be fully-collapsed (shortened) before the bottom legs will lock. I almost sent these back as “defective” because my wife and I couldn’t get the legs to lock. So, I guess the theory is that, prior to use, these units will be totally folded up when heading out camping or to a golf game, then when unstrapped, first deploy the legs and they will lock into place. If the upper support “arms” are extended BEFORE the lower legs are allowed to open and lock, they will not lock.

    1. Thank you Garry, yes this is the correct procedure as you describe it, the legs must be in place first. Much appreciated.
