just in time for spring and summer reviewsJust in time for spring and summer reviews and stories, production versions of TravelChair’s new Joey Chair and SleepRite Cot that were introduced at OR Summer Market are now available and ready to ship for testing and review.

What could be better than relaxing around the campfire after a hard days work AND testing one more product! It’s the stuff product reviewers’ dreams are made of.

The new Joey Chair and SleepRite Cot (full product details below) were developed with clever touches like shock corded poles, fewer pieces, durable fittings and better ergonomics at price points that provide consumers with previously unavailable options. The new pair join TravelChair’s line of more than 40 camp chairs, stools, tables and accessories.

People who are already talking about it:

We’re used to waiting a while for products we see at trade shows to make it to production. When we saw the new Joey Chair and SleepRite Cot from TravelChair at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in 2013, we were pretty excited to sit in, lay on, and fold up both of them. Their unique designs, which use shock cord to keep them lightweight and packable, are unlike other products we’ve seen, and we’ve seen a lot. Here’s the release we just got, advising us they’re available. *Videos at the bottom

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."

-Richard T.

    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."
