    Folding camping chairs

    Hello all,

    We're looking for some good folding camping chairs that we can either fit in the side boxes (BMW touring boxes 1994 RS) or strapped on top of the box? Anyone know a website we can order a couple from? Thank you!

    The Kermit chair is a folding chair that many find very comfortable. I have carried mine on my 94 R1100RS to rallies since purchasing it in 1996.

    Are you asking for advice on what chairs to buy or just looking for a website?
    REI has a good selection to choose from.

    Helinox is a popular brand for light weight folding camp chairs.

    I am a huge fan of the Kermit Chair. Named after the original designer who's name was Kermit; he designed it specifically for motorcycle touring folks. In my opinion he absolutely nailed the ergonomics, they are super comfortable, durable and convenient. I'm sure the dimensions are on the website but I have no problem carrying them in my roll top duffel which is not supersize, I'm guessing about 18" long packed. They are very well made and there are a couple of wood options. I've had mine for quite a few years and when I broke a leg on one and didn't get around to looking for a replacement for 2 years they still sent me the new part free of charge, they just sent me a package of replacement hardware for free as well. Great to have such service for a 10 year old product! They're not the lightest, nor the smallest but I've yet to try anything that beats it. Check them out.

    You may have created a monster, chair threads can be like oil threads. Let's see who the first Helinox fan is...

    slow as **** internet down here in Guyana, mine would have been the first reply but it took forever for the photos to load on my SmugMug.

    Amazon has a good selection. We have this Helinox that cost $199:

    We also have this nearly identical chair from Marchway for $50. They seem to be of equal quality. Both are comfortable, light and pack fairly small.

    Thank you for all the responses, we'll definitely evaluate all options, it's hard to chose for sure.
