Re-Thought-out from top to bottom

Since launching this lightweight camp chair, we have been field testing and taking critical feedback to heart which led to us improving our construction, function, and introducing a myriad of colors.

Improved Construction:

  • Plastics

Much like the Colonel and his chicken, we have our version of 11 secret herbs and spices for all of the plastic in our chairs! We pioneered our formulas decades ago. Recently, we discovered a few plastic blends that add strength, flexibility and functionality to the plastics found in the new and improved Joey Chair! For example, the connection hub takes on a lot of stress. Our new “secret recipe” is stronger and more flexible to handle the forces of sitting better than ever.









  • Fabric

We sourced a new rip stop fabric for our tent pole chair. It’s lighter, stronger and PVC free.

  • Improved Sewing techniques

We married this new material with even more bar-tacking, using a material that is stronger than hypalon for the pole pockets and a better mesh layout for optimal ventilation.









Improved Function:

Imagine your ski pole without a basket. Bad idea right? Design changes would be imminent. We know from 30 years of experience, the same holds true with camp chairs; they shouldn’t sink and they must be stable. Enter the anti-sink disc foot for the new Joey Chair.

Anti-sink Disc Foot 2 Anti-sink Disc Foot

The anti-sink disc foot keeps you comfortably on top of soft surfaces where others penetrate, loosing valuable seat height. These new feet alleviate the need for you to spend more money for aftermarket parts or slicing up beer cans, tennis balls , or webbing and stuffing them on your chair feet to prevent sinking. The anti-sink disc feet also adds much needed stability. Without our new feet, the poles will knife into soft ground and you will topple over.

 Myriad of colors:

Who said it is hip to be square? Not us. We have a new pallet of colors, including the PMS color of the year, for the Joey Chair to complement our design change.

TravelChair is known for legendary quality. Our vow is to be the strongest camp chair you have ever owned. Equally important is innovation where creating new concepts or putting our spin on classic designs. This mantra is evident in the last redesign of the Joey Chair.

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."
