TravelChair offers over 40 different models of durable, lightweight, and comfortable camp chairs, cots, folding tables and camp stools that are simple in design, easy to use, set up quick and pack down small.

“We approached TravelChair to help us design our kayak seat because of their expertise in designing and manufacturing lightweight, comfortable camp chairs and their strong brand recognition among consumers,” states KC Kayaks co-founder Gaines Garret.

TravelChair will provide KC Kayaks with a custom designed seat that will be standard equipment in their K-12 and Scout models. The seat, an all-new design based loosely on TravelChair’s Larry Chair, is secured to the boat via integrated accessory rails. The reversible seat can be raised or lowered, positioned anywhere along the rails and removed entirely from the boat.

The founders of Diablo Paddlesports first saw the Larry Chair in a new product showcase at Outdoor Retailer and thinking it might be a perfect seat for their kayaks, asked TravelChair for samples to test.

“We headed down to Moab to run the Colorado River right after OR and decided to test the Larry Chair in our boats right then and there,” recalls Thomas Flemmons, co-founder of Diablo Paddlesports. “When we didn’t flip we knew we had found a winner.”

The team at Diablo designed their Chupacabra and Adios boat seat attachment systems to work directly with the Larry Chair. Providing a more comfortable seating position and ride,  the Larry Chair sits 10″ above the boat deck making it easier to transition between sitting and standing. The seat folds for storage and can be removed from the boat to use in camp. For 2014, Diablo designed their new Amigo kayak with molded in recesses for the Larry Chair, making it even easier to use.

“We are excited with the OE partnerships we have in place with KC Kayaks and Diablo,” said Daniel Roso, VP of Sales and Marketing for TravelChair. “Each partner needed a unique seating solution for their kayaks and we are happy they recognized TravelChair as the way to outfit their boats with the best seats available.”

Diablo Paddlesports is the dream of two lifetime outdoorsman and river rats. Founded in 2009 and based in Austin, TX, Diablo based their kayak design on a need for a single watercraft that offered the benefits of both a stand-up paddleboard and a kayak. As a result they developed the “sup-yak” concept of fishing kayaks. This unique design allows for a boat that remains stable whether standing or sitting, maneuvers well in shallow water, and offers the all the comforts, such as dry storage, wet storage, paddle and drink holders as well as a comfortable seat.

Top 10 Best Camping Meals 2023

at TravelChair, we know that camping is a great way to get outside, enjoy nature, and disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life. But let’s be real, food is an important part (an also favorite part) of camping. Whether it’s a multi-day backpacking trip or a weekend car camping excursion, meals play a role in the overall experience.

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!"

    -Roger C.

    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."
