Rated 1 out of 5 by jopharm not as expected
I did not care for this "recliner" chair. It is very low to the ground and is difficult to recline the back. Back of chair is not high enough to be comfortable. Mechanism to recline is very cumbersome and difficult to use. Returned this chair, very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gigi2006 Love it
I have hunted all over for a chair that I can be comfortable in while at the beach, camping or outside the RV. My legs are short so I need something that doesn't cut me behind the knees.
We also canoe camp and it's not something I would take in a canoe because it's too rigid but for the rest of our outdoor activities it's the answer. Comfortable , quality construction and light enough. Shoulder straps make it easy to carry.
I don't have any trouble getting out of it. I do, however, have to fight the rest of the family for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ilovesummertime Very Comfortable!
I purchased these chairs to take to outdoor concerts. They are quite comfortable for the shortest family member (5'1") to the tallest (6'4"). We have used them for just hanging out around the campfire and sitting at the beach. Very versatile! The only reason I did not give them 5 stars is that they are a little heavy to backpack for my daughter and I. However, every lighter-weight chair we have tried has not been very comfortable or sturdy. They do sit a little lower than most outdoor folding chairs, but still easy for older people to get up and down from them. They also recline easily with the slip of a strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FatherOfTriplets Wilderness Recliner- Comfy for camping
We loved this chair so much my wife and I decided to get them for family gifts. They all loved them too. I am a big guy and it is comfortable for me. I even take it down to the lake for a relaxing "happy hour"

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeanLoyal4eva Not What I Had Hoped For in a Camping Chair
This is the first item I have ever been unhappy with in 35 years of doing business with LL Bean. I''m 52 and found this chair hard to get out of and hard to open. I took it to an RV campsite for 5 days and much of the coating scratched off of the bottom rails. I was with people in their 20s and 30s who also found the chair uncomfortable not because it is low, but because of the angles. The seat is sloped too much toward the back (regardless of how far or close the backrest is set). The wooden armrests are also too sloped. That said, if you are just sitting it is very comfortable. It is also seems a bit heavy to be called a wilderness chair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bftm Comfortable chair for car camping
Great, comfortable chair for relaxing by the campfire!
I had the luxury of sitting in every chair at the LL Bean flagship store. This was by far the most comfortable of the camp chairs. If you have wide shoulders then you'll benefit from the design of this chair (most of the upright back chairs tend to squeeze my shoulders).
While this may not get as compact as a `regular` camp chair, it does fold flat like a beach chair. It also has built-in carrying straps and drink holder.
The recline angle is continuously adjustable with a single strap. This chair is a little lower than the others but not too much so and wouldn't be out of place next to different designs.
While I personally found this chair to be the moat comfortable and best design of the LL Bean stock, another patron mentioned to me that they also had this chair, that they loved it, and that they recommend it---that sealed the deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunburn1 Comfortable, lightweight and durable~!
This chair is exceptionally comfortable. It is fairly lightweight and the pocket under the seat is great but it should have a zip enclosure so your belongings don't fall out. The other ideal addition would be a small cooler on the back of the chair for a couple beverages and a small ice pack. Very satisfied with the design, make, and durability. Extremely versatile chair and great for camping,sport events or the beach!

Rated 4 out of 5 by hobberpup nice value for the money
chair is comfortable, we use it out at our summer campsite, nice cushioned seat and headrest, reclines back far enough for extra lounging, overall happy with the purchase.

I bought two of these chairs for a camping trip. When they first arrived, I thought they were a little low to the ground but once we used them around the campfire it turned out, they were the perfect size. Very comfortable and very easy to transport with the built in backpack-like straps.

Rated 5 out of 5 Love this chair
I use this chair at the beach. It is so comfortable and it is extremely easy to get out of the chair while it is on sand. I have received many compliments.
