These chairs are actually ripoffs of the Alite Mantis, which has an MSRP of $120 each.

Quality wise this and the Helinox aren't even close to the Alite chairs. Alite uses machined aluminum and industrial grade silicone rubber, while these cheaper chairs use cast pieces and plastic, but for the price this is impossible to beat.

What weight is the chair? "Lightweight" isn't very informative. Also no indication of size when packed.

EDIT: from Amazon [amazon.com]...

how much does each chair weigh?
Answer: The chair weighs 3.4 pounds each.

Question: what are the dimensions of the chair in the bag?
Answer: The dimensions of the chair in the bag are 15.5 inches long and 5.5 inches wide. The x design on the base of this chair adds to its stability.

Personally I wouldn't one of these backpacking.

I would not group Helinox in with this chair. Helinox is almost as old as Alite in the camp furniture business. Alite and REI's in house brand are also great, but Helinox is still highly regarded as one of the originals. I own the Helinox Chair Two and 2 REI Flex Lite's. I have also tried most of the Alite models at REI but preferred the ergonomics of the other brands. I think Helinox, Alite, and REI are the top brands for these lightweight camp chairs and I definitely wouldn't group Helinox in with these new, cheap knockoff brands that have been flooding the market within the past 2 years.

NICE FIND, I was just thinking about pulling the trigger 2 days ago when it was $50 plus shipping. Good thing I waited. Repped.

We bought a similar chair for $30 from Amazon, not exactly the same but looks similar. It's great, super light and really easy to put together. I'll be getting these.

Do they fold up and fit in the bag assembled? Or do you have to take the seat part off the frame each time?

Does anyone have experience with this chair? This is definitely a good deal, but I'm curious how they hold up.

I have the MoonLence [amazon.com] chair from amazon. Been really pleased with that one. Especially compared to the higher priced versions from REI or Helinox. We use it mostly to lounge in the house for the kids, but could use a couple more. These Costco ones fold together differently.

Can't beat the price for 2! Order a pair to see how it is, free shipping and Costco return policy, might as well try it out.

If you've read the review on the Costco site, you'll see postings of 2 lbs to 2.5 lbs. Unless there are actual manufacturer specifications published somewhere, I wouldn't put too much stock in what is being reported unless someone can post a video weighing a chair themselves.

By comparison, the REI Flexlite in "Oregano" is on sale for $55 and weighs 1lb 10oz.

Ordered 2, even if they arent the lightest they'll save on space for some light backpacking/chairs to keep in the back of the truck just in case.
