    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!!

    I spent some time in this chair at the rally, very comfortable.

    If you don't have any luck finding the vendor, you can order one from REI or Amazon.
    The chair with four legs packs to 17x5x5 and the chair with two legs pack to 13x4x4.
    Here's the four leg chair.

    If I could even get into this chair, I'd NEVER be able to get out. The Kermit with leg extensions is bad enough -- **I** need leg extensions, or at least new knees.

    I have developed a plan on chairs. I go to the nearest store and buy a cheap chair, typically $10 or less. I use it, then leave it at the campsite for the next camper who might need a chair. I am sure I could have bought several Kermit chairs for what I have spent doing that; but I have become a slave to customs.

    That's my plan too!

    Nothing to carry on my bike until I need it.

    Sometimes tough to find in RED, though.

    Full Throttle Camping was selling at Sedalia and ran out. Great Chair I bought one. Gits in my pannier when traveling light. But I still use my Kermit chair when packing for the long haul.

    Here's the site for Full Throttle. http://www.fullthrottlecamping.com/index.php

    On their site I could only find the chair with two legs, not the one with four legs.
    You could call or email them if you want the four leg chair.

    Just to make this a little more complicated, here is a similar chair that sits a little higher, packs a little smaller, holds a little more weight, and costs a little less. Its called the The Helinox Chair, you can get it at Campsaver.com, plus, if you subscribe to their newsletter they will give you 20% off and free shipping.
