    Help, Camp Chair seen @ Sedalia Rally

    I am looking for a camp chair seen at the MOA Sedalia Rally sold by a vendor. They were selling like hot cakes. It came in a blue bag about 12" x 3". I think the vendor selling them was set up inside and the bags were on a rack in front of his display.

    I am eyeing up the Alite Mantis chair...more expensive, but comes with 4 legs instead of 2 and so I don't have to worry about rocking or teetering off it, especially after a few libations!!

    Was it the Pico chair?...I have a Kermit, like it, but the Pico looks allot easier to set & use / put away. It migh be a bit bulkier to carry though?

    I don't know who at the company decided to do a video of a chair for touring motorcyclists employing an improperly dressed female and a bike that likely has not been more than 200 miles in a day; but I am not buying it. I also did not buy Progressive Insurance for similar reasons. I am just too old and cantankerous.

    "Flo's clothes" bother you? She looks like any nurse 20+ yrs ago to me? The girl in the black looks like she's going camping in a prom dress to me And that might be her Mom in the video ?

    Some really neat chair ideas here, I especially like the Blue Max and the Helinox. But, they all suffer from the same malady-- low seat height. It's that feature that keeps me in my Kermit Chair with the leg extensions. My wife uses a Pico chair, and while it's very comfortable and easy to use, it's heavy and doesn't pack small. OK for our sidecar rig, but not a great choice for a solo ride.

    Best,

    In a post above it looks like it was a Helinox Chair.
