This is a very nice chair and a huge upgrade from the one I replaced. I really like the pockets and drink holder, as well as, the attached bottle opener.

Well-built, handy camping chair
July 20, 2011

I bought this pricey chair as a present for my boyfriend and bought 2 MUCH cheaper camping chairs for myself. We went camping recently with 15 friends and there were probably 15 camping chairs. This Kelty one was one of the most popular. And one of my 2 cheap chairs broke on the second day. I guess in this case, there is a correlation between price and quality. I'd definitely recommend this chair since I believe it'll last years. It also has a nifty shoulder bag to carry it in and I'm pretty sure it comes with a beer bottle opener which came in very handy! The blue is also a pretty color but not too girly for guys.

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

great chair

This chair is very sturdy but not too heavy to carry in its own sack. Love the adjustable beverage holder. Adjustable arms are a huge plus.
