Terralite Portable Camping Chair
The WildHorn Outfitters Terralite Chair is designed to be compact enough to take camping, backpacking or on a bicycle trip, yet light and comfortable enough to take to the local soccer game.
The Terralite Portable Camp Chair comes with a secret weapon to stop the legs sinking in boggy river beds or sandy beaches.
TerraGrip Feet Innovation – No more sinking into sand or mud!
Wildhorn Outfitters has built a solid chair that holds its own against its competitors. This chair meets the problem of its legs sinking into mud and sand, head-on.
The HUGE advantage this chair has over other portable camping chairs is that it comes with interchangeable feet. It comes with standard feet, plus 4 x additional TerraGrip feet.
Once the innovative TerraGrip feet are attached, the chair floats on sand or mud making it perfect for both sandy or muddy conditions.
These larger feet make a world of difference when you're sitting in your chair in soft soil. The Terralite feet simply stop the chair from sinking into damp or rain-soaked ground.
How portable is the Terralite Camping Chair?
With this camping chair, gone are the days of hauling heavy, bulky chairs around that claim to be portable. The Terralite Portable Camping chair makes it super easy to enjoy sunsets on the beach, campfires, kids school and sporting events, or music festivals - anywhere you need to take a chair to.
The Terralite Portable Chair weighs in at 1.9 pounds (860 grams) with the standard feet fitted. Even with the unique Terragrip feet attached, it only weighs 2.6 pounds (or just a little over a kilo).
When packed, it measures 17” x 4.7” x 4.7” inches (43 cms x 12 cms x 12 cms). This is very lightweight and perfect for any outdoor activity. The chair comes with velcro straps making it easy to attach to a backpack or bag for hands-free transport.
The chair is lower than a normal chair, but not as low as a beach chair. It measures 14 inches from ground to seat height, and around 28 inches from the base to the top of the chair.
Camping chairs don’t get much more portable than this!
What's so good about the Terralite Portable Chair?
This is a very well-made chair. All the seams, stitching and stress points are double reinforced. The pole sockets are also reinforced so the poles never poke through. The seat material is removable and machine washable for easy care.
The frame base of the Terralite portable chair is made from heavy-duty Aircraft Grade 7075 aluminum alloy making it almost completely rust proof.
The chair will support up to 350 lbs (or 158 kilos).
The chair legs are joined together with what’s known as shock-cord. These are commonly found in tents. The poles slot together quickly and also come apart very easily.
Wildhorn Outfitters is a company that prides itself on good service and quality products. I've found their Customer Support to be incredibly helpful.
Finally - A practical storage bag!
You don’t need to be Houdini to get the chair back into the bag after use. The design of the mesh bag makes it easy to get the chair packed away after use.
When not in use, the mesh bag can be attached to the underneath of the chair with the velcro straps. This stops it going AWOL unexpectedly. This can double as a handy storage pouch for bottle openers, torch, keys or phone.
The hardest decision will be picking the color
The Terralite Portable Camping Chair is a sturdy and compact chair. It's lightweight enough for backpacking and hiking trips.
The TerraLite feet will keep you floating on sand making this chair perfect for the beach. The feet also stop you from sinking in mud or soft soil. Its design makes this super quick and easy to set up, and it can be taken down and packed away in seconds.
