      Comments about ALITE Monarch Chair:

      Easy assembly. Light weight. Comfortable. Perfect chair for outdoor events when having to carry a lot of items. Great for backpacking ..... light and comfortable to sit in. I rock in the chair by putting my feet up on a stump by the campfire. I chair does sit low, but my seating position is just like in a regular chair.

        Comments about ALITE Monarch Chair:

        I pack this chair in a small panier with a towel, lunch, and a book when I bike to the beach. The soft sand does not make the chair unstable: it even makes it more stable. I rinse the sand off easily at home and hang it. Dries as fast as a swim suit. Very comfortable for reading. Great design.

        At the end of a long day, to be able to sit with your legs stretched out, rocking easily with your beverage of choice in hand is well worth the little extra space and weight this brilliant chair adds. I haven't quite mastered getting in and out of it without fumbling but once in, it is almost unbelievably comfortable. One of my favorite pieces of gear.

        Comments about ALITE Monarch Chair:

        Better than sitting on sharp rocks, but not much. Requires a Cirque du Soleil move to sit in. And a narrow behind like one of them. Easy to fall over backwards. Never could get up, except by rolling on to my side. A perfect gift for the friend that you want to laugh at around the campsite. Returned it before my friends could see me in it.

            Best used on level ground, but lightweight and simple to use. Quick fold up takes some getting used to, but once you have a system down this is a good chair for adventurers who don't want a lot of bulk to lug around

              Comments about ALITE Monarch Chair:

              After discovering that a hammock-style seat just doesn't cut it around the campfire after a long day on a motorcycle, I was looking for a chair with a back and came across this model. The reviews were great and I have to agree. I'm not sure it's ideal for outdoor events as you sit very low to the ground but it is comfortable and took only one (or two) tries to get the balance just right. After a huge rainstorm, all it took was a quick rinse to clean up the chair and it dried in no time. It compacts so small and is so light that I have no difficulty getting into my pack.

                  I attended a motorcycle event and saw someone using one of these.
                  They look a bit odd at first, but once I tried it, I had to have one.
                  Getting seated may seem slightly undignified, too bad.
                  The setup takes less than a minute, even for me.
                  You can either put your feet up on a stump or lean back on whatever is handy and be in total comfort.
                  It seems quite study, no doubt that it will last a long time.
                  Best part is how small it packs, a real consideration on a smaller sized cycle.

                    This is the best camp chair I have ever used. I wish I had upgraded to their Mantis chair, as this one sort of buckles under me a bit but hasnt gave way on over 15 trips. Im about 5'9" and 220. Either way, any big guy reading this who has tried any other camp chair would have to agree there isnt a comfy solution. Crazy creek or thermarest chairs sit you right on the ground. This is like a rocking chair, the balancing act part isnt super easy at first but you will get the hang of it.
