Gear Review: Big Agnes Big Six Camp Chair

The Big Six Camp Chair from Big Agnes was by far the most comfortable lightweight, compact camp chair I have ever melted into after a long, late-night drive to a middle-of-nowhere trailhead. Sadly, that first night relaxing by the campfire with steaks sizzling under a star-filled sky would be our last adventure together. The Big Six unfolds like other shock corded collapsible camp chairs, but this beauty is deluxe. With a high back at a perfect slope and a wide, comfortable seat, you can truly kick back and relax. It sits 20” off the ground, which is apparently some kind of magic height for sitting comfort. The lightweight nylon polyester rip-stop provides extra tear strength, but, evidently, doesn’t make this chair magically fire proof. I left the chair a safe distance back from the coals when I crawled into my tent well past midnight but awoke to a mess of charred nylon and melted aluminum in the middle of the fire ring thanks to a late-night storm. Sitting on a milk crate for the rest of the trip was fitting camp Karma. I plan on replacing my Big Six Camp Chair pronto. MSRP: $149.95.
