Camp Chairs: Thermarest “Uno”


Intel: Packed size – 12” diameter x 1.5” thick; weight – 2 lb. 3 oz.; load capacity – 250 lbs.; price – $89.95; (

This one attracted me because of the cunning package it comes in— a frisbee-style disc container that holds the poles and fabric that makes the chair. Not as high as the other chairs in this review, which makes it perfect for things like outdoor concerts. In camp it is sturdy and comfortable, if a little more difficult to get out of. I usually park a dry box next to me to use as a push-off aid in standing up. The disc-shaped package packs easily down the back of a dry bag and the unit doubles as a low table if that’s what’s called for.
