Rated 5 out of 5 by avidbikers replacement chairs are great!
We recently purchased these chairs to replace some that were purchased at a "big box" store. The old ones broke at bottom of the legs long before they would have been worn out. The new chairs are much more sturdy and the mesh seat areas are a lot cooler then the solid panels were!

The title says it all, but for my family, the selling point of this chair are the vented backs and seat area which allow them to both ventilate and dry after a rain. Our prior seat just collected a puddle in the seat during rain fall, and these do not.
This was a replacement to a previous version of the same chair, and we absolutely loved it.

The netting on these chairs helps when it rains and then the chair dries much faster.
Great stability and convenient cup holder :)

Like the idea of the mesh but the frame is too small. Even my wife can't sit comfortably as it pulls in on your shoulders

This chair is flimsy and cannot handle more than 125lbs. I do not expect this chair to last more than a couple of uses. I cannot tell guests that they may be too heavy for this chair.

When I opened the box and took out this chair I was pleasantly surprised! So easy to get out of the bag and simple to set up. I love the green color. This will be so easy to carry being as light as it is. Love my new chair!

I am sick of replacing chairs every year, so I have purchased 2 of these chairs knowing I will be sent new ones if they fail. Well, we love the chairs. The cup holders are coming apart a little on both but still working. Disappointed in this. Hope they correct this defect

Rated 5 out of 5 by AVeryPickyCustomer Base Camp Chair - The Best
Don't you hate the poor quality folding chairs you have to keep replacing for active outings or camping? The ones that invariably break every year or two? Buy this chair then! The LLBean Base Camp Chair has a few solid structural features you simply will not see in average portable folding chairs. You will notice that the second you set it up for the first time. Such as the strong mesh seat and back that dries so very quickly--thereby not "ruining" your experience due to a quick rain shower or a spilled drink--an ingenious feature! Or the larger length, high quality carry-bag--not a cheap wanna-be like the competition. And the base structure--with side bars front and back (most chairs only have rear)--shortening the life of the chair. Plus the COOL embroidered name on the chair back? Plus, LLBean's customer service, shipping, and quality guarantees??? You cannot go wrong with this chair at this price! Why buy something lesser in value?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Walker48 Very light, no problem carrying my own chair.
I bought the chair because of it's weight....it delivered!
I am a little concerned with the net seat fabric, but that's why I am an loyal Bean shopper.....I know they will replace the item if there is a problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Perched Short seat
Lightweight and seem to be well-made. Easy to set up and put away. However, these are made for people with short legs! The front edge of the lower seat hits both my husband and me in the middle of the upper leg, which is not comfortable for a long duration. If the seat were a bit longer, it would fit much better, and we are of average height (I'm 5'5" and my husband is 5'10"). We considered sending them back, but the tags were cut off and we had used them. We will probably not use them much.
