how heavy is it to carry?
THE KELTY DELUXE LOUNGE CHAIR IS NOT AS HEAVY AS IT LOOKS, I CARRY TWO CHAIRS ALMOST WEEKLY TO AND FROM MY SONS BASEBALL GAMES AND I FEEL THEY ARE NO HEAVIER THAN THE CHAIRS I HAD USED TO CARRY. THEY ARE BUILT VERY STURDY AND I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THEM, I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THESE CHAIRS.
It is heavier than any of my other folding/camping chairs. But it is also by far the sturdiest and most comfortable. I would not hike with it, but I love it for car camping or tailgating!
Personally I don't find it too heavy but then again I only carry it from a parking lot to a spectator area, simply put the strap on my shoulder and go.
How heave is the chair; well it depends on how you intend to use it. If you are going to back pack to the wild open spaces this is not the chair for you.
If you are going camping to state and federal parks with organized camping sights this chair is grate. this chair is like a portable recliner. It is the most comfortable you will ever use. It is also large, roomy and well made.
It is surprisingly light for a chair of this quality
Relatively light considering the size and padding. Only thing I don't like at all is the angle of the back - makes your bottom slide forward. You angle of the back is adjustable, but tilting it more makes it evem worse.
So not as comfortable a chair as I had hoped,
Depends how far your carrying it. Its not heavy to carry from the truck to the campfire but if you were going to hike several miles it would begin to get heavy and bulky. Its by far the best camp chair I've used.
Not heavy but had to have it replaced cause it broke and then that one broke less than a year later. It was a great chair when it wasnt broken though.
