Sit around the campfire in comfort in a Strongback Chair

If sitting around the campfire in a collapsible camping chair gives you an aching back, then the ergonomically designed Strongback Chair could be just what the chiropractor ordered.

Unlike a standard camping chair that causes a person to sink and slump, the Strongback offers lumbar support that promotes a straight back and lifted chest. The secret is in the design—curved tubes that conform to the natural curve in the back.

The Strongback comes in two models: the Elite and the Zen.

The Elite ($79.95) is the Cadillac of the two. It is larger and supports more weight—300 pounds vs. 225 pounds—is 36 inches in height and weighs 11.9 pounds.

The Zen ($45.95) is built to save on space and money in your pocket. It is 31inches tall and weighs 7.7 pounds.

The seat of both chairs is made from heavy-duty polyester 600D and the steel frame has a tough silver-powder-coated finish.

Both models have cup holders. On the Elite they hang below the armrests. On the Zen they are built into the armrests.

The carry bag for the Strongback is designed with the back in mind as well. It has two straps so that, when carried like a backpack, the weight is evenly distributed. A handle on the top of the bag makes it easy to pull out of the car or tight places.

While both chairs have their advantages, anyone who prefers more support in the back and shoulders, is of a more substantial size or has a bad back would definitely be happier with the Elite, the company’s top seller.

The Strongback can be purchased at L.L. Bean or at
