Rated 3 out of 5 by NewEnglanderwith2cats Low Rider Camp Chair, low back
I bought this for my husband as a gift after he saw one that I had bought for myself from another retailer and is discontinued. Decent chair, low rider as described. I did not like that it has a low back where there is nowhere to rest your head to relax (I'm 5'2"). I didn't like it for that reason and will be returning without even giving it to my husband as I'm sure he'd feel the same way.

For a trip to the beach this is the chair to have. Takes very little space in the car, easy to carry and easy to open. I like sitting close to the sand so this fits me just fine. It is comfortable and when I'm ready to leave I fold it up, place it in the handy traveling bag and I'm gone.

Paired this chair with a sports umbrella and the waterproof blanket. Perfect for watching travel soccer games!

I gave two of these chairs to an active couple as a wedding gift. They loved them, and in their thank you note told me that they were perfect for concerts and sporting events, and that they had already had people asking where they came from. A great gift of high quality, they will use for years to come.

Bought two for a the beach. Not very comfortable. Elastic strings that hold the fabric to frame broke after a couple uses.

The Low Rider is well made and I think the ventilated seat will be great in the heat. Looking forward to our first concert next summer.

by getmeoutside Compact carry then Sit down low & Stand up easy
Chose this small foldable chair because I am an expedition kayaker and needed a small, lightweight camp chair that could be carried compactly on the rear deck of my kayak (under bungees) or inside an open sit-in kayak with no bulkheads. I recently used it on the Colorado River for several days and it served all the purposes.
Pros: So far, it fits & holds me with stability, (I'm only 120 lbs.), all hinges, soft sewn materials & hardware and the nicely powder-coated structural support frame seem sturdy & operate as designed. Good idea, this chair was designed to be compact & light so the arms are minimal, nicely padded and serve as part of the structural design only. And, since they are made of steel, serve well to grab on to and push yourself up easily from the low sitting position, a real-life plus if not holding a beverage. The quick-dry, sand shedding mesh inner material is tough and is well stitched to the outer heavier cordura type materials, all the sewn-in connecting sleeves to the frame are sturdy.
Cons: However, there are two small 1/8th in. bungee cords attached to the upper back of the chair cloth that are used to attach, and stretch, the top of the chair's back panel over each side frame pole that puts the back in place before unfolding the chair. The back panel is then stretched up, using the small bungees, to remove it off the poles before folding down into the bag. I feel these flimsy bungees will either break, detach or loose their elasticity over use and time & I'll need to replace them sewing in or somehow attaching new cord.
Also, I noted that the large, sturdy swivel feet were attached to the chair frame with smaller steel pop-rivets which cannot be replaced in the field (or home) if they break. The other frame-folding areas are hinged with heavier threaded Allen-wrench bolts & nuts which could be more easily replaced. Time & wear will tell how well the hinged areas hold up. (see photos)
The sling strap carrying bag is made of a thin type nylon material that has already shown some wear on the sides & bottom where the feet & metal bolts come in contact with the thin material. Heavier cordura would have been better for longevity especially when out in the field. A heavier bag would also be better for more protection to the deck of my kayak. The large webbing shoulder sling seems sewed on well so far.
Four stars because the carrying bag and chair have both been optimized for weight as shown by construction materials, etc. These type folding chairs have been known to give way after extensive field use (not in your home), so a more realistic review of this chair will be given next year.

Usual superior quality typical of LLB. Surprisingly solid/sturdy for such light weight and low cost. Wish it were a bit higher off the ground, I'm 6' 2", but that's not so tall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TriedandTrue22 Exactly what I was looking for
If you are in need of a small camp chair that packs easily into a carry bag for concerts, picnics, etc. this is the chair for you. It's comfortable and easy to get in and out of. No crawling on your hands and knees to get up because the side arms are perfect for lifting yourself out. And they are padded nicely too. Very happy with this purchase.

We bought these camp chairs for going to the beach and the park. They are lightweight and portable. We like the carry case and the chairs are comfortable. My only complaints are that they are a little difficult to collapse and the mesh seating is slippery if you are sitting on an incline.
