What this is about

Here you have a collapsible outdoor chair with some truly great features. The term collapsible implies that it needs a simple assembly, so this is not a folding chair as they write in the name used in the title above.

But this assembly only means attaching the sling on its shock-corded frame. These two main elements are shown in the picture below. You can see also its nicely designed carry bag and this gives you some idea of its size. But see also the numbers, the packed size is 14.2 x 5 x 5 inches (36 x 13 x 13 cm).

Only two pieces plus a carry bag.

The picture below shows the chair from the back so you can see the small pockets in the corners of the sling where the poles are placed.

Materials

The fabric is a very strong and sturdy ripstop CORDURA 500D nylon. This is among the best materials for such products. As you see from the pictures, you have large mesh areas so this is a breathable structure suitable for a warm environment. The picture below shows the zoomed view.

Regarding the packed size, the chair is very compact, so you can carry it in any way you want. This can be in the pack, on a bicycle, etc.

Regarding the size, the chair is not very large, you see the most important dimensions below. As you see the seat is very low.

Regarding the price, it looks simply incredible, this is a true bargain. So it is not surprising that the chair is becoming a best-selling product at some global sellers.
