Key features & benefits

  • Folding chair, no assembly.
  • Ingenious design.
  • Packs thin.
  • No armrests.
  • Carry bag included.
  • Very reasonable price.


This TravelChair Larry Chair was launched for the first time more than a decade ago. So imagine, it has been tried and tested by many, and it is still around, this tells you this is a well-made product built to last.

The chair has no removable pieces, so this is an ingenious folding design. The horizontal bars under the seat fold in the middle, and this applies also to the backrest bar that folds in the middle and then it folds forward. So the chair becomes very thin when packed, measuring only 19 x 12 x 2.5 in (48 x 30 x 6 cm), see how it looks from the side when folded:

As you realize from the pictures, there are no armrests, so I have included it in my list of best armless camping chairs. Note that it comes with a carry bag included.


The frame is a combination of powder-coated aluminum and steel. There are no classic feet here, you have bars that will not easily sink in the ground no matter where you use this chair. But they have added small caps to increase friction on a smooth surface.

The fabric is a 420D Ballistic Nylon mesh, quick drying, lightweight, and strong.
