UOG TOP PICK - Mountainsmith's Slingback Chair - A handy compact chair - We've singled out Mountainsmith's Slingback Chair as one of our top recommendations because it's a great option for those who want a comfortable chair with back support and already use trekking poles on there hikes. It's compact, lightweight and has a very reasonable price tag for a minimalist backcountry lounger.

A very clever piece of kit that utilises trekking poles to support your weight so you can lean back and relax.

Mountainsmith says:

Kick back and relax in this ultralight seat that sets up with two trekking poles. Who said you can’t bring your recliner into the backcountry?

Inspired by Mountainsmith Founder Patrick Smith and one of his original 1980s designs, the Slingback Chair is a light, packable backcountry lounge chair for added comfort around the fire. It weighs less than 5 oz and is compatible with most telescoping trekking poles.

Mountainsmith's Slingback Chair is a pretty ingenious design that actually works well, it takes a few times to get the hang of getting in, but once you've got it that's it. Perfect for anyone who already uses trekking poles as a lightweight addition to your gear to get a seat you can actually sit back and relax in.

We'd pair it up with a foam sit mat. Whilst the fabric on the chair is waterproof, it's not insulated, so your bum might get cold pretty quickly without using a foam sit mat.

Mountainsmith Slingback chair

Haven't used this out on the hill yet, but have tried at home and works well. If you carry walking poles anyway this is a no-brainer. The chair allows you to sit with your back supported, packs small and weighs next to nothing. The fabric seems durable and the pockets that hold the end of the poles are well reinforced. A further pocket at the other end allows you slip in a seat pad. Great product.

Slingback chair

Great - a simple idea. Best used with a sit mat or, for ultimate luxury use with a neoair xlite small!! Don't make the mistake I made though, of setting up my tarp and then scratching my head as to why, when I need my poles to sit down......cue a quick bit of coppicing to liberate my poles!
