Product Description


Chances are you’ve noticed the twisted, broken remains of many a plastic and aluminum discount-store folding chair abandoned or stuffed into garbage cans after rallies and events. Ah, wasteful, race-to-the bottom consumerism…You will never see The Kermit Chair suffer such an ignominious end, however, because this is the real deal, a hand-crafted piece of artistic sitz-tech that will keep your butt off the ground with unmatched elegance, ruggedness, and utility.

Constructed of beautiful oak and aluminum structural elements, with Cordura fabric, the Kermit weighs only 5 lbs. and packs into a 4"×6"×23" Cordura bag. When you are ready for your last folding chair, the Kermit Chair awaits. Blue, green, burgundy, or black.Made in USA

Hands Down Best Camping ChairReview by MICHAEL
Without a doubt, the most comfortable camp chair you will ever use. I wish I had purchased one years ago. Having a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the campfire, morning coffee or just relaxing this chair makes camping feel like home. Truly a staple for my motorcycle camping gear. (Posted on 3/2/15)
Kermit chair customer serviceReview by Scott
Aside from being the most packable/comfortable/Durable camp chair on the planet, Kermit has the BEST customer service I have come across in a long time! My wife somehow lost one of her curve's. I called to ask If I could buy a new one. One was sent at NO CHARGE!! Now if I were to loose another one I would expect to have to purchase it, but this was a nice surprise!! I would not even think about buying another one of these fine chairs, I would JUST DO IT!!!! (Posted on 1/4/13)
Chair of AwesomenessReview by WC
When you first see this chair, you think, "Hmmmm. Kinda spindly looking." But this chair is built solid and looks to last far, far longer than any other camp chair alternative. It packs down relatively small, but most importantly it is very comfortable. (Posted on 12/27/12)
Deployment ReadyReview by Tom
I took my Kermit chair on my last deployment to Iraq. It fit inside my rucksack for travel. I added the leg extensions when I needed to use it as a desk chair. Great product! (Posted on 12/10/12)
Kermit to the rescueReview by Peter
After about 20 years of motorcycle camping I was getting sick and tired of sitting on the ground. It's amazing how just a little elevation transforms the experience around the campsite. I finally bit the bullet and bought a Kermit. The chair packed up to a reasonable size and was exactly what I needed to get off the ground and really enjoy camping. (Posted on 10/20/12)
IngeniousReview by Jim
Small, lightweight, comfortable, what more could you ask for in a camping chair. A little less cost would be nice but the quality is obvious, you get what you pay for here. Aerostich sent me the wrong color, but as is the case with their customer service they made it right in a hurry. I had a trip to go on a couple days after original order was received. I had what I ordered before I left. Thank you for great customer service. (Posted on 8/27/12)
True camping comfortReview by Tiltcylinder
Make room in your moto camping setup for this chair. There are many 'camp' chairs available, but there are truly none like this. Sets up quickly, packs down small and the comfort level in front of the campfire beats everything else. Every time you get up, expect to return and find one of your riding buddies 'just keeping it warm' for you. A half dozen wilderness camp trips planned this year, where campsites amount to finding a clear spot in the forest, will make it worth every penny. As a bonus, it's made in the U.S.A.!

Best of BreedReview by Scott Brady
Fantastic, made in the USA chair that we have used on six continents. We just ordered another batch for our next expedition. Compact when stored and supremely comfortable, the Kermit has become our chair of choice. Set-up can take longer than some, but in the 4wds, we tend to just leave them assembled. Only complaint is the leg extensions, which need better retention consideration. (Posted on 4/10/12)
Kermit Rocks!Review by Fierke
This is the most comfortable camping chairs around! The quality is very good, the construction is very well thought out & it packs to a nice size for a bike. It is worth the price to have a comfortable place to rest your bones after a long day in the saddle! (Posted on 12/5/11)
Expensive, but worth it..Review by Paper
Solid, comfortable, and packs down..

I never thought I'd spend this kind of money on a chair, but now I wonder why I waited so long.. Excellent!!! (Posted on 7/28/11)
Those in the know...Review by CeSalt
Assessing my gear, one verteran motorcycle camper said, "HEY--I like that Kermit Chair--you have the secret handshake there.." The chair is solid and easy to setup, take down, and travel with. (Posted on 10/26/10)
ConfortableReview by Skip
Just received the kermit chair, easy set up and confortable.not going on any trips soon so I use it in my living room- my wife hates this. (Posted on 10/13/10)
worth the investmentReview by Hugh
I've had one for several years, it has logged thousands of miles, mostly on river trips. I get @#%*& when I set it up, but if anyone gets a chance to sit in it It becomes a battle to get it back. Very good quality, and has held up well, to some hard use. (Posted on 9/17/10)
Awesome!!Review by Kimberley
Wonderful, easy to strap on my mc. Comfy beyond words......LOVE IT!! (Posted on 8/28/10)
UnbeatableReview by Ripshod
I've been carrying one for four years now. I'd never go camping without it.

Actually the parts are made in Mexico and shipped to Tennessee where the owner does quality control and assembles the chair kit. It's well worth the investment. (Posted on 6/18/10)
envy of the camp fireReview by bmwrider79
I have had mine for a year now with the leg extensions. This chair is so much better than the made in china cheapos that many campers use. You sit on it like a real chair, not like in some sack where you get a back ache from. Yes they are kind of pricey but well worth every penny. Plus it is built to last a life time unlike most all other foldable chairs. (Posted on 10/14/09)
Not every dayReview by Seamus
I took this chair with me on a trip to Alaska a few years back. I set up camp each night and broke it down every morning. There was always a picnic table or stump to sit on and I didn't take the time to set it up once. They are easy to pack along and for rallies or extended camping (in the same campsite) they are indispensable. (Posted on 10/4/09)
spot on piece of kit Review by timberman2004
left it for a year post purchase ...just to check
used this with bike ...with boat

brilliantly made and does what it says on the tin
being a miserable bugger when it comes to kit, and more then happy to find fault, this chair is well thought out, well made, cleverly designed, and worth it's weight

after a long hard day, a minute to assemble ...and bliss

Set up and sit downReview by Brad
I've had this chair for 3 years or so. I love how well made it is .Very easy to pack . It takes a bit of time to get used to putting together. I did have one of the wood pieces split , I called the company and the owner answered , sent the chair back , and was sent a new one at no charge . Great product and great company !!!
