The Original Since 1984

Since our first production nearly 4 decades ago we set out to get rid of all of the complacency found in our product category. Good enough, was never good enough….at least for us. With the idea that everyone should enjoy the outdoors we applied skills from a life time of common sense learned in the trades, we added grit and determination to blaze our own trail here in the beautiful PNW for TravelChair. To do things our way, to learn each day and expect the best, not to cut corners.

Three decades later we find ourselves continuing to learn, innovate and bring something better to the table. With another generation upon us here at TravelChair one thing remains the same………..we continue to apply skills both handed down and learned, and to face the simple fact that it can always get better, more refined, more pure. As alchemists attempt to purify, mature, and perfect certain materials and we do too.

Travelchair products are always “built for good” 

We want to build the best product we can while also using the best practices. Building the ‘best’ product can cause harm if the methods used to create the outcome are not considered. The lightest material may not always the best material to use for our environment. Because a certain material has always been used or things produced in a certain manner, does not mean it is the best if a holistic approach to sourcing is sacrificed. Questions need to be asked. Question like ‘What is the bi product of this material?’ or ‘Are there alternatives with less impact without compromising performance?’

As we continue to learn, some things will remain the same – high quality performance and care and consideration for what we love most……….the outdoors.

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!"

    -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."
