Key features & benefits
- Folding chair.
- No assembly.
- Padded backrest.
- Storage pouches.
- Great price.
As the title tells you, this is a folding tripod chair that requires no assembly, so it is very easy to use and to deploy when needed. It folds in a bit elongated bundle and it comes with a strap so that you can carry it attached to the shoulder as shown in the picture. There is no carry bag here.
But you have already seen that it has a backrest. It is not very high as you realize from the picture below, but it is padded and it still adds a lot to its overall comfort.
Other features include a storage set on the side, so here you can keep your small items at hand. See how it looks.
The frame is a powder-coated steel and the structure looks strong because it has three vertical legs plus X-crossed bars on all three sides. Observe that the feet are very wide so they will not easily sink in a soft ground.
The fabric is a 600D polyester, so this is quite typical for such tripods and chairs. Note that they offer two color options, you can see them in the pictures here.
The mentioned backrest is with a foam padding sewn in. The picture below shows the back view with the carry strap attached.

Regarding the dimensions, they are shown in the pictures below. The title is its official name, so the words Extra Large are quite meaningless. The dimensions are quite typical for tripods.
Regarding the weight, it can be described as lightweight with its 4.5 lb (2 kg). But indeed, there are lighter options available like this Pacific Pass Easy Carried Tripod Chair.
The packed size is 33 x 4 x 4 inches (84 x 10 x 10 cm). So you can transport it on the back when you ride a bicycle, but for longer distances this is a car camping item.
Regarding the price, it is simply incredible, a great value for the money.
