Pocket Chair Looks good for bike camping

https://www.pocketchair.com/

Saw these on TV. I don't normally look twice at the "As seen on TV" junk but these acually looked like a good idea for Bike camping, back packing etc.

$31 for 2 shipped ......

If you search amazon.com for "pocketchair" you get this one and several other similar stools and chairs. Good stuff for camping.

Don't know, I think it might work OK as long as you don't exceed the weight limit and don't twist too much in it. It does look a bit fragile. I like the concept though.

Are you saying that Indiana women are all on the heavy side? I haven't checked the stats on obesity in various states recently. I don't get to Indiana often but happy to know many women and men in my area of Virginia who would be able to use that chair. :biggrinjester:

These stools are great for bike travel. I have a Kermit Chair that I bought for trips only to find that it would not fit in my panniers. I have never taken it anywhere on the bike. I bought one of these at the Tac Shop on Camp Shelby a few years ago for about $10-12 and have taken on every camping trip since.

It's not made for big boys but it holds my 170 pound but very well. It's stronger than you might think.

I use the Alite monarch chair; two of them fit in my cases and take up less space than the kermit (which doesn't even fit). It's the most comfortable camping chair I've ever sat in, and I often sit in it at home too (that's how comfy it is).

pocket chair looks like it would be good as part of your tool kit. use it to do road side repair or maintenance.

+1 on the Alite Monarch. saving up to get three. yes, saving.

Somtimes it sucks not being in the loop. HUH??[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Olive"][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

+2
When packed this is literally the size of a Nalgene bottle. Bought mine at EMS (Eastern Mountain Sports) after a trial sitting for $59. Not for everyone but small, light, and comfy for me even at 220lbs. I almost want another for my wife ... but then again she rarely rides with me.

I just use a 3 legged folding stool. Kermit chairs are expensive because you have to buy a BMW to get one.....
