The lightest chair in our furniture family, the Monarch Chair is the original tent-pole chair that brought Alite to fame. Balancing on two legs allows you to rock forward and back. The two legs also allow for sitting (and rocking) comfortably on uneven grounds and hillsides.

No chair with four legs will let you do that! The frame is made from lightweight yet durable 7000 series aluminum, and the sling is comfy, ripstop nylon that includes breathable mesh panels.

Similar to the Mayfly, it collapses down to fit neatly into its matching stuff sack. Weighing in at a feather light 590gm, its perfect after a long hike in. And its compact size when collapsed down means you can bring it anywhere... camping, picnics, beach or just lean back and watch the shooting stars!

Can be used on firm, soft and uneven ground. Higher than Monarch Chair and smaller packed size.

My 2018 'Camping luxury'
Tuesday, 10 October 2017  | 

With a pack size similar to a litre 'pop' bottle but squidgy this chair could be too big for a hiker's pack. As a cycle camper I have a corner to stuff it. I suspect it'll disappear wrapped into my tent if I really try.
The two leg design is 'adequate' for me - you'll either love it or hate it. I found it fine for an hours test watching TV. I haven't tried outdoors yet but anything to have an option away from a damp bum, sitting on a plastic bag or lounging in the low single man tent without sitting up room. My partner instantly rejected it as looking too precarious but I wasn't surprised.
I am seriously looking forward to my April camping trip, sitting on the site lawn, comfy chair rocking gently, dram in hand looking out over the loch.

Comfort on 'The Moor'
Tuesday, 10 October 2017  | 

I have only had one opportunity to try out the monarch chair on Dartmoor. It proved very comfortable and stable on both uneven and steep ground, that is once you master the 'balancing act'. It will certainly be in both my day and overnight kit list.
