Your back will love these Strongback chairs - you will too

One of the advantages of getting away is a chance to just sit and read or ponder. That’s only enjoyable if you’ve got someplace comfortable to sit. Strongback chairs are the answer.

Designed with good posture in mind, these foldable chairs combine the proper amount of lumbar support with a number of design features so that you can sit for hours without getting the “slouchees” common to so many sling-type camp chairs.

Strongback comes in two models – the Elite and the Zen. The Elite is the larger of the two and even my largest relatives sit comfortably, feeling well supported. The Zen is slightly smaller and, while offering the same support, is probably going to be preferred by those of slightly shorter stature.

What’s a camp chair without a beverage holder and Strongback offers one on the Elite and two on the Zen.

Both models come in their own carry bags with back pack style shoulder straps. Larger than your average camp chairs when folded, these still fit easily in even the smallest car trunks.
