Alite Designs has made comfortable outdoor chairs simple. Best of all they made these chairs light weight and compactible enough to meet the needs of the backpacker. I got my hands on their Mantis chair and couldn't wait to test it out!

I didn't get to crazy hiking with the chair, but I carried it far enough and tested it out on many different types of terrain. I've heard great things about these little chairs for some time now. One of my good buds Jeff Popp, of Mile High Mountaineering owns the Alite Monarch (another version of the chairs) and has carried it on several trips and swears by it.

At first I was a little cautious of dropping my big butt down in one of these chairs that compact to be not much bigger than your standard Nalgene Water Bottle. But it held up great time and time again, and best of all it was amazingly comfortable!

The break down is simple, you get the body of the chair and a set of collapsible legs. A total of two pieces that carry in a small stuff sack. 

The body of the chair (the back and the seat) are constructed of 210D ripstop nylon fabric. The legs are made from 7075 light weight aluminum. 

Like many other fans I'm on the bandwagon too now!

To put it in a nutshell here's why: It's light, sturdy, it breaks down small, it's easy to carry, and even easier to assemble. Wam-bam thank you ma'am, it's that simple!  Alite Designs chairs are flat out great! I don't want to even call it an outdoor chair, or a camping chair. This is outdoor luxury furniture at its finest! I'll have no problem nor will I think twice about packing this chair with me from now on.
