Chairs that fit in a 356

#1 Post by Steve Douglas » Wed Jun 05, 2019 12:26 am

Most of us haul around folding chair to shows and gatherings that barely fit the back of a 356, taking up a lot of space. I found some backpacking chairs that fold up incredibly small and yet are comfortable. Costco has some fairly nice ones for $26, Cascade Mountain Tech High Back camp chair, that are rated for 250 pounds and are comfortable for most. In black with copper colored frame. Being I weigh in about 250 + or -, and a bit bigger than most I found that REI has similar chairs, Flexlite Marco Chair,with a bit more width and rated for 300 pounds, cost is $99.98. I got green, but comes in several colors. Both easily folding up into a 5" X 16" bag.
Amazon had some but they are unavailable/

When in doubt, there is always the roll of duct tape on the floor, an old favorite.

Look up the Kermit chair - a lot of motorcyclists carry them. Pretty comfortable and they last for many years. Get the leg extensions as it raises the chair up to a more comfortable level.

Pico is a good option but not quite as compact as what you show Steve.
