What this Kelty Lowdown Couch is about

Here you have yet another, the largest item in Kelty Lowdown series. They also have a single Kelty Lowdown Camp Chair and a double Lowdown Camp Chair. All of them follow the same basic concept.

So this is a folding Couch with three seats, it is incredibly easy to use and there is no assembly of any kind. It comes ready to use, and you open it in seconds.

When not in use, and for transportation, you pack it in its functional and versatile Roll-Tote carry wrap. The picture shows how it looks when folded and packed.

It is reasonably compact, and its folded dimensions are 35 x 13.5 x 9 inches (89 x 34 x 23 cm). You can compare this with their single chair from this series that measures 32.5 x 8 x 8 inches (83 x 20 x 20 cm).

The Roll-Tote is quilted, so you can also use it to sit on the ground, or to carry some stuff in it as the picture below shows.



The frame is a powder-coated steel and it is sturdy and stable, in particular because of those numerous X-crossed support elements, there are 8 of them. As you see from the pictures, there are 8 legs and the feet are very wide. So this couch will not easily sink in the ground.

The fabric is a 600-denier polyester, this is quite typical to have in camping chairs. Note that the seat and backrest are quilted, so this adds to comfort and it also makes the couch warmer.

The couch has two adjustable soft armrests, they are with straps on the back so that you can adjust the position. The picture below shows one of them with its wide and insulated size-adjustable bottle holder.

Who is it for

Regarding the capacity, it is officially for the weight of up to 600 lb (272 kg). This may look a lot but the couch is about three people, though this should still be enough.

Regarding the dimensions, you have (L x H x D) 64 x 31.5 x 23.5 inches (163 x 80 x 60 cm). The armrests take a few centimeters, but this is still enough space for three adults as the picture below shows.

Regarding the weight, it may look heavy in view of its 20 lb 15 oz (9.5 kg). But divide this by 3 because this is about three chairs in one.
