Sitting in a chair is a luxury. There’s no doubt about that. I’m pretty big on lightweight adventure travel so I’ve always left the travel chairs at home. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older (and wiser?), but I’m starting to crave some back support and less sitting in the dirt, so I was obviously pretty excited to test out the Therm-a-rest Treo Chair.
First, this chair comes in a small package. It nearly fits in the palm of your hand and weighs just over four pounds. But just because it has a small size doesn’t mean it lacks comfort.
You know how the first meal after a long camping trip tastes amazing? Maybe I have great feelings about the Treo Chair for similar reasons, but I don’t think so. This chair is just the answer to the long trip spent without a backrest and I’ve never found it uncomfortable.
Usually the small camping chairs sit low to the ground and can be hard to get out of. Again, not so with the Treo as it sits you a comfortable 13″ off the ground. It’s also durable and strong, supporting up to 250 pounds.
The tripod base easily supports and finds level on uneven ground and the non-skid feet also hold you in place on most terrain.
