Okay. I need to talk about something that we rarely think about let alone talk about until it is too late–comfort at the campfire. The older I get (50 something, closer to 60 than 50) the harder it is for me to find comfortable seating around a campfire. I can no longer sit on a log or even in most folding chairs. They cut off my circulation and my legs go numb or my backside gets sore.
I needed something that stores easily.
I’ve tried a zero gravity chair and it was great. It was like sitting in the barcalounger of lawn chairs, but where would I store it in my camper? We have a 22 foot long Coachmen Beyond with very limited storage. My husband took it as his personal mission to find us comfortable chairs in which to sit around the campfire while making sure they were small enough to fit in our small camper.
He found some chairs that are comfortable and fit in our small camper storage area. He found the CLIQ Chair. It is a “sturdy, comfortable, portable chair that rapidly packs up to the side of a water bottle” (https://www.cliqproducts.com/products/cliq-chair). I have to admit I was skeptical at first. How could this 19 inch long folded up chair be big enough to seat anyone comfortably? Well, I unfolded the chair, sat in it and was hooked.
Pros & Cons of the CLIQ chair.
|* Fits in a small space|
* Easy to expand and collapse
* Weighs only 3.65 pounds so it is easy to carry for a distance
* Strong base of support, tip-proof design
* 300 pound weight capacity
* Available in six colors (black, navy, red, green, royal blue and silver)
|* Price of $99|
* There is a learning curve to collapsing the chair. It took me a few times to figure it out.
* Seat height is 10 inches, so it might be hard for some people to get in and out of the chair.
