Monarch Two-Leg Chair
- Product Review (submitted on April 22, 2010):
I searched for years for a chair that packed small enough for hiking but was reasonably comfortable and not too expensive. This chair has balanced those sometimes-conflicting criteria better than anything else I've found. "Balance" is the key word; the chair has only two legs and your own legs provide the stability. One of the pluses of that arrangement is that the chair is a rocker; a minus is that it won't stand on its own, and getting in and out of it is a bit of a skill (but easily acquired).
It sits pretty low, but definitely better than the on-the-ground folded Thermarest type of seating. One benefit of the relatively low seating is that I can use it inside my littlest tent when the mosquitoes are bad.
