Rated 5 out of 5 by catfarm Perfectly comfy for camping relaxation !
Ordered this LL Bean camp chair and a camp stool (which I'll review next) for upcoming camping/musical festival vacation in the semi-tropics. Lightweight, easily transportable between music stages, and cool mesh seating and back will allow for wicking of moisture on a hot and humid day. For someone with back problems, this chair is a must, as it's light to carry, folds up to fit a small, light carry bag, and I found it extremely comfortable for my lower back sciatica problems (have tried it out in my living room !). The chair folds and unfolds so easily, and quickly folds again into a small object to carry or stow away in a van. Another plus is that the way the feet of the chair are designed, they do not sink into the ground, and they seem to be non-slip, or 'tippy.Definitely thinking of ordering a second as a gift or for guests ! And all from LL Bean -- always a dependable, quality source for camping, home. and everyday life.

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?
