The Kermit folding chair

I've been looking for a set of four high quality folding chairs, even checking out the Zip Dee. Seems well made but not at all portable. Then I remembered a perfect solution: my Kermit chair. It folds, or rather, rolls, into a small 22 inch bag. You can fit four of these in the space of just one regular folding chair.

It takes all of a minute to set up and looks like this:

Motorcycle campers swear by them. Well made in Nashville out of solid wood, they are known to last a long time. They make a set of leg extenders that makes these really comfy for taller people, and they have a wider chair version for those large of waist. Even come with an optional clip on cup holder.

What's not to like? Just the price. $140 plus more for the add ons. Sigh....

Maybe I can get one a year to spread the pain out. You can also get them custom embroidered. My vote was "Not Lara Me? Then Get the %$& outta my chair!"

Yup. I have one from my motorcycling days. Thanks for the reminder. Fine quality and compact.

These are great chairs! We take them canoe camping in the Boundary Waters and bring them along in the Airstream. They are very comfortable, and pack small enough to fit into a portage pack. We've had them several years and they have held up really well. I bought 1 for me as a trial, and as soon as we unpacked it, I had to order one for Ed.
Not cheap, and a bit heavy, but worth it, and US made! We didn't spring for the embroidery, but I like your vote.

That chair is so nice it says "steal me" written all over it. I like your embroidery idea, next add a bicycle lock.
I think might just have to have one.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Love my Kermit chairs. I have two that I purchased about 12 or 13 years ago while doing some BMW moto camping trips. Both are still in great shape, comfortable, classy, and made in the US by Kermit back then.

I saw the title of the is thread and had to read. I never owned Kermit chairs, but know well of them for the same reason as many others here... BMW motorcycle rallies. I've got plenty of pack room in my Airstream and tow vehicle, but I remember the days of travelling by bike and needing to pack small. Thanks for a blast from the past and looking forward to when I can do some travel on a bike again!
