Completely understand, just showing options for some of us that can

I'm also revisiting the Kermit chair - pricey but what a wonderful appearing product - looks super sturdy

Regarding the joey - does it sink badly in dirt/grass? Read some reviews about the feet breaking and some quality issues - ?

The helinox and joey chairs look great - they appear to be identical

Camp Chair Mulling

This is the Eureka we have:

As for the Joey, I've not had any issues with ours. It does sink a bit in soft ground, no easy way to stop that with a leg base. We were on a beach in the Bay of Fundy this past summer (had a huge private beach to ourselves) and it did sink a bit, but I was just fine with that

Nice. It hasn't bothered me to date but a good find. Just something else to carry and I like to keep in small and compact.

The interwebs are cool

It's something like 24mm electrical conduit

So wait - you have a joey and the low rider curvy?

Yes, Eurekas for the campsite, and the Joeys for lightweight kayak/canoe/bike/hike trips. I also pack a compact hammock from MEC in the AS. I'm considering upgrading to a Hennessy.

So to be clear - that low eureka sits pretty low - I think I will look hard at that one - could fit two in the front storage compartment in the AS I bet

I fit three in my rear 28 hatch, plus the Joeys, and my camping mat and could probably fit two or three more Eurekas...but I have rear twins.....LOTS of outside storage.

So you find the eureka more comfy vs joey? But joey more portable?

Yes, that's a correct assessment.
