Chairs for cycle touring

One of the worst things about cycle touring is the serious lack of comfortable places to chill out at the end of the day. I don’t know how many times Tanya and I would cycle to a destination, just to go to bed when the sun set because we were tired of standing or sitting cross legged on the ground.

While searching for a new tent at Mec, we cam across a set of Alite Mantis chairs. We tried them out in the store and liked how comfortable they were, but they are expensive, we walked away from them.

The idea of sitting on a nice chair while touring festered in our mind for about a week, and we couldn’t handle it any more, we splurged and bought the chairs.

We love them! Worth it!

Two things are at a premium when cycle touring: weight and space. These chairs weigh in at .9kg and about 1L in size each, and are surprisingly comfortable. We love these chairs, and I can’t recommend them enough if you want a nice place to sit at the end of the day.

Early in the morning, while everyone is sleeping, you can take your chair and coffee and find a big stump to ponder life, these chairs are super portable.

We bought our at Mec.
