What this is about

Here you have a product from Coleman’s Mantis series that includes 5 of them. There are two chairs, two tables, and one Mantis Cot. They all share some common features.

So this is a collapsible chair that has only two separate elements, a frame and a seat fabric, plus a carry bag that is included. They all are shown in the picture below.

The frame is with what they call the SpyderHub technology. It features spring-loaded hubs that rotate, and all the tubes are shock-corded to it.

This is how the frame looks before you attach the seat.

Materials & unique features

The mentioned 2-hub system is unique itself. But it also includes details that are available only in this Mantis series.

So you have two cup holders integrated in each of the hubs. They include an upper ring and a lower ring. When not in use, you simply close them.

See one of them in the picture below. The same holders you have in their Mantis Table.

The frame is a painted steel, and this yellow color is common for all the elements in the Mantis collection. The feet are with plastic caps.

The fabric appears to be polyester with breathable mesh side panels for airflow and extra comfort.

The included carry bag is double-zip and with hook-and-loop closure.

Who is it for

Regarding the capacity, the chair is officially for users of up to 250 lb (113 kg). This should work well with most of potential users, but if you need more please check my list of camping chairs for heavy people.

Regarding the dimensions, as its name suggests, it is low-profile but the seat is still not very low, you have 15.5 inches (39 cm) from the ground. See how it looks in the camp:

Regarding the weight, in view of its 5.5 lb (2.5 kg) the chair can be described as light. But this is for camping and not to carry on the trail. If this is what you need, please check my separate list.

It is quite compact when packed, see the numbers below, so you can transport it even on a bicycle.

Regarding the price, I think it is reasonable for such a unique chair, but check the sellers from the links below and compare. 


  • Weight: 5.5 lb (2.5 kg).
  • Capacity: 250 lb (113 kg).
  • Dimensions: 26.3 x 26 x 20 in (67 x 66 x 51 cm)
