The Joey Chair

Camp chairs come and go. Maybe you got one as a gift, or grabbed one at the General Store on your way outta town one weekend. Or perhaps someone forgot theirs at the beach and it ended up in the trunk of your car? Whatever way you come across one (or four), a comfortable chair is an essential for anyone that spends a lot of time surfing and camping on the coast. So when our friends at Travel Chair sent us their latest offering, a small, light, four-legged seat sack they’re calling the Joey, I was stoked to see how much better – or worse – it would be than the Teddy chairs they sent us last summer.

The Joey features a lightweight aluminum frame that connects courtesy of a shock cord system.

The Joey sits a bit lower than your average camp chair, providing a rather relaxed, laid back position.

Four small feet will keep your seat secure, while closed cell fabric will withstand 300 lbs of pressure.

Each corner features a small fabric cup where the drawn aluminum tubing slides inside.

The arms and legs fit inside these black plastic intersections.

Custom camp chairs!

Fully assembled.

So no one steals it :)

Disassembled and stored inside its sack, the Joey is no bigger than a Baja Burrito.

– Lightweight
– Packs small
– Affordable ($69.99)
– Comfortable (slouchy style)

– Not easy to assemble (compared to a traditional camp chair)
– No place to put your pint (it’s armless)
– Can feel off-kilter (I tipped over twice)

For the price and pack-ability, there’s really no better camp chair on the market. Car campers can appreciate the small amount of space required to carry three or four (comfortable) chairs to the coast, while backpackers and hikers alike will no longer need to sit on the sand or those tippy tri-pods.

Slacker Stool- 1389V

"I now keep one in my car ready for any type of activity where sitting is preferable than standing. You can insert your own activity here. The size make this easy to grab when in doubt, and has often served as a life saver.

Easily stored and low-profile. Almost no bigger or heavier than an umbrella. You will not complain taking it with you and will be rewarded by being rested and comfortable when you get up."

    Joey Chair- 7789V

    "After owning this chair for a little more than half a year, I can confirm that this chair is all-around amazing. It is extremely comfortable and it is pretty light weight.

    As others have mentioned, the feet outperform other chairs that have straight feet in the sand. The feet design allows for the chair to sit on top of sand rather than sinking in.

    My friends are always jealous when I bring this chair to the park (which is every time, since its so easy to pack). So much that we often end up taking turns on it 
    If you're debating whether or not to get it, do yourself a favor and just buy it!"

    Big Kahuna- 599

    "Awesome sturdy comfortable chair. I don't know why but I am the King Champion of breaking folding camp chairs. I am 6'2" 295lbs and have broke many 300lbs rated chairs, one chair cut up the back of my knee pretty good when it failed.

    My son is 6'7" 325lbs and plays major college football, he has not even come close to breaking as many chairs as I have. Well the Big Kahuna Chair is rock solid and comfortable I don't ever see this chair failing. If it ever does I'll post it."
