What type of camping chair is this ENO Lounger SL
Here you have a completely new chair from ENO brand. It looks similar to their Outfitters Lounger DL chair, but there are some substantial differences.
This is a fully collapsible chair and this also implies that it is nicely packable so the packed size is only 20 x 5 x 5 in (51 x 13 x 13 cm).
With such a design, it needs a simple assembly when you want to use it, but there is not much work here. All the elements in the frame are shock-corded and pre-attached to the frame, you cannot lose anything, and there is nothing to guess.
When you want to dismantle and pack the chair, check for the pole on the base with letters on it. One end of this pole is not shock-corded, so this is the place where you start collapsing the chair.
The chair has a stretch mesh pocket on the side, and it comes with a nice carry bag with a shoulder strap and a drawstring closure.
As you realize from the picture below, this is a tripod with massive feet. So it will not sink easily if you use it on the sand. But even if the feet sink, the triangular frame close to the ground will prevent further sinking.
This is a 6061 anodized aluminum frame with plastic hubs. This part is very similar to their DL Chair.
The fabric is a 140D ripstop nylon, and you have mesh in the bigger part of the chair, so this promotes ventilation and make sit suitable for warm weather use.
Who is it for
Weight-wise, this is a very light chair with its 3.6 lb (1.6 kg), and I have included it in my list of best collapsible chairs. Its packed size is good, and it is backpack portable. But it is not in the group of ultralight backpacking chairs.
Capacity-wise, the chair is quite modest with its 250 lb (113 kg) declared capacity. This may be good enough for many users, but if you are a heavy person you might want to see some of these heavy-duty chairs.
Size-wise, the dimensions of this chair are very good, though it is a bit narrow. The backrest is high, but still not high enough for a headrest. You have this in its bigger cousin ENO Lounger DL chair.
- Weight: 3.6 lb (1.6 kg).
- Capacity: 250 lb (113 kg).
