Rated 4 out of 5 by BostonianTravelGirl Clever design for a compact chair with headrest
I've been a big fan of a competing brand of ultra-light compact chairs for the past few years, but always wished they had a headrest of some sort, since I often use these at music festivals where it is sometimes nice to just sit back and fully relax. When I saw this version with a high back I had to try it.
It's pretty comfortable, tho you definitely will want to use the stuff sack (or a t-shirt) as a pillow to increase ergonomics. The design of the feet is also different than my other ultra compact chairs, making it better for sand and soft surfaces.
I also wish It was slightly wider at shoulder height, I'm an average woman and I have to shrug slightly to clear the supports. Since this chair isn't ultralight I'd have scaled the frame up slightly width-wise.
I'll be curious to see if it's as comfortable as my other chairs for long periods of sitting. But for the headrest alone I'm gonna say it's a keeper, for now.
