A few years back I bought two Kermit chairs from some guy in Tennessee. He runs the operation himself and offers 5 year warranty, replacement parts, repair, etc.. Called him and he said he will fix it or replace it for life, lawyers had him put a 5 year warranty on paper. Really nice dude that takes great pride in his chairs. These chairs got their starts with motorcycle tourist it sounds like as they fit in saddle bags and what not. Lots of folks down here travel on their Harley's, BMWs, etc.. and camp.
I have had a bad time with camp chairs. At 6'6" 300 lbs, I have a hard time with just about anything I sit on. Taking extra para cord and duct tape was the norm on previous float trips and camping trips as I always knew my camp chair was disposable. Used the cheapo Walmart type, then got the Travel Chair brand which is a nicer version of the Walmart junk. All chairs broke under the mighty force of my arse. More specifically, my trying to get out of the low sitting seats.
So I finally broke down and got the Kermit chairs. Skeptical at first about paying so much for a camp chair, I got nothing but praise at this point. I have used mine on several Alaska Float trips, numerous camping trips here in NC, smoking meat in the yard, etc.. These chairs are incredible. They pack small and weight is tolerable. Once assembled, which takes 2-3 minutes, they stay assembled and fold for the trips duration. Being on the taller side, I got the optional aluminum chair extenders that make it 4-5" taller. After a few years of usage, thought I was in a good position to review this product. If it will support me, it should work for most anyone. Incredible design and quality product.
