Video: One Snazzy Camp Chair in Under 60 Seconds

email this page

Marytn Davies, globetrotting-off-highway-trailer-master and guru of all things Adventure Trailers, has his favorite camping chair.

The chair?  Made by Front Runner (and also made by GCI, called the "Xpress Lounger," you'll see why it's called that). When it's folded up, the chair is the size of a Mac Book Pro stuffed in a carrying case: a mere 2.5"x17"x17".

So check out this video he put together showing just how clever this collapsing camp chair is.  At 0:32 notice how Martyn is already kicked back with one leg outstretched and wondering where the heck he placed his cocktail.  Perplexed, he packs up and - I'm guessing - heads off to the local pub instead.

That's how slick and fast this chair is. (Bonus Trivia!: What does Martyn's video have in common with Penn and Teller?)

It's cool.  We own two of them in part because they fold so small and in part because the framing is so robust.

You know what they say, right?  "Don't sell the steak, sell the sizzle."  So, here's a picture not of the chair, but of what the chair might mean to you:

Now you have me thinking I should do a series of videos of "The Traveling Chair". The next episode would of course be me arriving at the local pub and setting up the chair next to a roaring fire. I'd then relax, drink a few Bishop's Tipple Ales, get up fold the chair and exit right :-)

Actually, "The Traveling Chair" should pick up a new traveling partner in every episode...
