Yeti Trailhead Camp Chair Review  

The Highest Gear Forager Score which is a lit match

89% Gear Forager Score

The Yeti Trailhead Camp Chair review finds points for its durability, high-end materials, and comfortable size. This chair can hold some serious weight while still being able to fold into a carrying bag. You won’t need a physics degree to use it but you might need some muscle. It’s a heavier, larger chair which makes it extremely sturdy but also heavier and less compact than other camp chairs. Comfort comes at a higher price point, but who can really put a price on keeping your back aches at bay while camping.

Yeti Trailhead Camp Chair Expert Reviews

Gear Patrol says:

“It’s wildly durable, using the same high-tension fabric that can support up to 500 pounds, and quite sturdy thanks to a locking frame and extra-wide feet. But while the Hondo offers these qualities in an XL folding format, the Trailhead scrunches up into a tight package that, with the included carry bag, you can throw over your shoulder.”

Cool Things says:

“The Yeti Trailhead Camp Chair uses a crossover frame that allows it to fold right down the middle, enabling the more compact collapsed size compared to the outfit’s previous offering. It uses the same FlexGrid fabric as its predecessor throughout the seat and the high back rest, which conforms to your body’s natural curves, allowing it to eliminate pressure points, so you can lounge in complete comfort.”

Gear Junkie says:

“The Trailhead Camp Chair is YETI’s latest venture, and our frequent car campers on staff are definitely interested. The Trailhead Camp Chair (a pricey $300) has a super-packable folding frame, flex fabric cover, and creature comforts like armrests and a cupholder. “

Fatherly says:

Yeti elbows its way into this space by making an overbuilt, more robust (read: heavier and bigger) chair that can withstand much more than its aging competitors.

Each Trailhead weighs a little over 13 pounds, spans shy of four feet with about a foot of diameter when folded, and is to the category the same way its coolers are to those made of styrofoam. It’s far from an ultralight and backpacking-friendly option, but it’s obviously not intended to be one.
