About Travel Chair
Since 1984 we have been designing travel chairs in Gig Harbor, Washington. We overbuild them from the nylon that we use in the feet to the webbing that holds the seatbacks to the frames. We’re just that way. Hey – we know that it’s just a chair. But we want it to be the best chair that you’ve ever owned.
We have been a stable brand in the outdoor camping/recreation industry since our conception. TravelChair is a women led; second generation family business, located in town of Gig Harbor, in Washington State.
To put it simply- we make the very best camp gear on the face of the planet, and we are proud of it. We put our decades of chair manufacturing knowledge and best practices into every product we create, only using the finest materials to give you the greatest camp furniture possible.
TravelChair Products are always Built for Good- Good Purpose, Good Experience, Good Product.
To inspire others to spend more time outside and to help our community along the way.
To enhance time outside with simple and comfortable gear.
To build a dependable, well-designed product that is easy to use and built to last.
At TravelChair, we believe the best things in life are found outside. This belief has inspired us since 1984 to develop gear that enhances your experience outdoors with products that are easy to use and durable.
The Sum of our Parts
We believe that we are only as good as the materials we use to build our products- which is why we exclusively use the very best materials and manufacturing practices for our products. We want to give you the best camp furniture possible.
Our powder coated steels and aircraft grade aluminums are a tier- higher than what is typically on the market and a tick or two thicker as well. We exclusively use only the highest quality metals for our frames. Are you thinking of getting that less expensive chair? Just remember, it’s less expensive for a reason. And it’s not what you get, but what’s missing that you will really feel when you use it.
The common thread throughout our line is that each fabric must be the ultimate in durability for its intended use. Take the 600 denier nylon. We use a double layer instead of a single layer like the discount store chairs. Of course, along the way we put it through product testing in the Desert Southwest, in Chilean Patagonia and in our own warehouse.
Not all rivets are the same – ours are oversized to maintain frame integrity. Instead of drilling a large hole to drop our rivet into and then mashing down the ends for a tight fit, we drill to exacting tolerances, which means more manufacturing time spent creating TRAVELCHAIR® products, and much longer, happier life in your hands.
TRAVELCHAIR® started the whole folding furniture genre in 1984. Natural selection has led to a design that is as simple, as light and as tough as possible. Since 1984 we have sold over 2.5 million chairs – that’s a lot of real life abuse (we call it product testing).
Seat belt webbing is good enough to save your life and it is good enough to reinforce our chairs. We could do the “industry standard” and just take another fold of our 600 denier fabric for reinforcements, but we wouldn’t be happy with the results. Neither would you.
We overbuild. You will probably never notice things like bar tacking, doubling of fabrics and reinforcement fabrics made of seat belt material, but we will. The bottom line is that attention to detail makes good designs work best.
