My wife and I attend an annual music festival. I love the experience of the music, people, food, and everything else but the sitting in the grass on a blanket does not work for me. I’m uncomfortable and a grump for what should be a good time.

We tried to buy some cheap low sitting chairs at the local big box store but I had a hard time getting in and out of those. After all, I am a “larger” guy. I realized I needed a festival seating chair that can hold me and not break, and that I can get in and out of without the tuck and roll maneuver I had been using with the low laying chair.

I am happy to say that such a festival seating chair happens to exist, and that it is even budget friendly.

Easy Rider Model 589VThe Easy Rider (Model 589V) holds up to 300 lbs. and is a perfect height to get in and out of. It has padded hand rests, more supple fabric to love on your backside and adjustable armrests, all making for a more comfortable sit. This is a great seat for sitting and listening to your favorite band, or just to take a rest in-between music sets.Now if you need a little something more, I would go with the Big Kahuna (Model 599) with super sized weight capacity (800lbs) and so much storage space around, you can’t forget anything. It is a little bit more money, but still within the budget for most.

TravelBenchAnother great option if you have a group is the TravelBench. Whether it’s kids or just your friends, knowing that everyone would have a much better time if they had someplace to sit while eating that corndog, or waiting for that next band to hit the stage, the TravelBench offers everyone a place to sit (comes in 3 or 6 seats). And you don’t have to carry a bunch of chairs or make 8 trips to the car parked half a mile away.

So, next time you are heading out for that concert under the stars, or the music festival for 5 days, take a TravelChair. Your butt will be glad you did.

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."
