TrekChair’s patent-pending 2-in-1 trekking pole & camp chair system creates a new class of luxury seating for outdoor adventurers seeking ultimate backcountry comfort in an exceptionally lightweight and compact package.
Get Out Gear will be running a crowdfunding campaign for TrekChair with an expected launch of April 2021. A limited number of TrekChairs will be available for early bird pre-order, with estimated worldwide delivery in Q3 2021.
Groundbreaking Weight Reduction
Backpacking chairs are one of the most common “luxury” items backcountry adventurers desire, but are hesitant to include, because of bulk and added weight. TrekChair has solved this problem with the development of a full size high-back design, providing all-day comfort and support at a carry weight of just 1.5 lbs. Collapsable to just the size of a water bottle, the innovative design uses trekking poles as the primary support device of the lightweight chair frame, substantially reducing the carry weight and bulk compared to traditional collapsible chair options.
Compact and Packable
About the size of a 1L water bottle, TrekChair is ultra compact and fits in a backpack pocket. By eliminating the redundant pole sections used in conventional chairs, it occupies 40% less volume than comparable chairs, saving valuable backpack space.
Strong and Durable
The TrekChair system leverages ultra-strong and lightweight carbon fiber trekking poles that many backpackers already use. In conjunction with aircraft grade aluminum alloys, the frame is extremely strong and lightweight, supporting up to 250 lbs (265 lb pending final testing). The seat fabric consists of a lightweight, yet durable, ripstop nylon designed to withstand years of outdoor use. TrekChair comes with a 5 year warranty on the frame and a 1 year warranty on the trekking poles.
TrekChair is also the first ultralight backpacking chair that reclines. The chair can adjust upright when performing tasks around camp or it can recline like a lounger when ready to nap or stargaze.
“TrekChair creates an entirely new class of seating for outdoor adventurers who value ultimate backcountry comfort in an exceptionally light, compact, and durable package,” said Jon Davis, Get Out Gear’s Founder and CEO. “It is the first in a series of designs to leverage our trekking pole concept which optimize the efficiencies in weight, size, and comfort that come with re-using the equipment adventurers already take with them.”
