Key features & benefits
- Collapsible chair.
- Ultra light.
- Very compact.
- Great price.
This is a backpack-portable chair that can be described as collapsible. This means that it has separate parts and it needs a simple assembly. But there are only two elements and they are shown below, the fabric and the frame, the third is just its carry bag.
The chair is very compact, in its carry bag it measures only (L x D) 12.6 x 5.9 inches (32 x 15 cm). The picture below shows that it fits into the side mesh pocket of a backpacking pack.
The frame is a heavy-duty and strong aero-grade 7075 aluminum alloy with excellent mechanical properties. All the tubes are shock-corded and pre-attached to its two hub elements. So you can never lose a part, and it assembles almost by itself.
Note that the feet are with some plastic caps, but they are narrow and I would not use it in a floored family camping tent.
As for the seat, they write it is a 60D “nylon polyester”, and this makes no much sense. But in any case, this is a breathable synthetic material with mesh areas, and double reinforced stitching. My guess is that the taffeta is polyester and the mesh is nylon, this is typically so with outdoor items that have mesh and taffeta combined.
You have a side pocket on the side for small items, see how it looks:
Who is this Trekology Ultralight Camping Chair Yizi Lite for
Regarding the capacity, the chair is quite modest, the official capacity is 200 lb (91 kg). Though they give also 220 pounds (100kg) as its capacity.
But this is not all, in the answers on Amazon they write the capacity is 270 lb (122 kg). So this is a mess. In any case, all these numbers are still far above my body weight, but heavier users might try something else.
Regarding the dimensions, they are quite reasonable for such a light and compact chair. You can see them below. As you see, it is nicely proportioned. Even the footprint is almost a square.
Observe that the seat is very low, see the picture below. This may be important for elderly users because getting in and out of the chair may not be so easy.
Regarding the weight, the chair weighs only 1.65 lb (0.75 kg), so it is lighter than many celebrated ultralight chairs like the Big Agnes Skyline UL Chair or the NEMO Moonlite Reclining Chair. I have included it in my list of ultralight backpacking chairs.
You have already seen its packed size, so I would describe it as very compact but not really ultra-compact. You will see in the mentioned list some far more compact chairs.
Regarding the price, it is simply incredible, so the chair is a great value for the money. This is a nice option as a gift for somebody who goes outdoors.
