When YETI first introduced its ultra-rugged folding-style YETI Hondo Base Camp Chair a few years ago, the outdoor gear world took notice. Everyone’s question was, “Is a $300 camp chair worth it?” Clearly, it turned out to be a hit. However, I wasn’t convinced that the form-factor was sufficiently travel-ready for the kinds of camping I do. I mostly tent camp in dispersed camp sites. I prefer collapsible camp chairs simply because they’re so easy to pack. You can stack them horizontally, tuck them into weird spots in the back of your loaded pickup — and you can even stack them upright alongside the edges of your pickup to help support other gear. So when YETI introduced its Trailhead Camp Chair, I knew it warranted a closer look. After spending some quality time camping with the Trailhead, I came to appreciate the bomber quality and excellent ergonomics. The Trailhead is tough and flat-out comfortable.
