        Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Trekker Chair Kit 20:

        I use this primarily for backcountry kayak and backpacking trips. I use it primarily as a camp chair with a Thermarest mattress, but also use it to form a pillow using my clothing ditty bag.

        I've used this camp chair for about 11 years, and absolutely love it. It's light. The rods prevent it from really packing small, but it's still well worth the space. It's very comfortable and supports my back extremely well. After a day of kayaking, it is just wonderful to relax in this chair.

        For most of this 11 years, I had a old-style self-inflating Thermarest, and used both the 3/4 and full size 20" pads. They worked extremely well. I replaced the pad this year with a neo-air, and it did not work quite as well, but still was very comfortable and easy to set up.

        After a particularly relaxing stretch while sitting under some palm trees on a deserted beach, one of the clips broke. It was my fault, as it's a pretty tough piece of equipment and I stretched almost horizontally. I decided to replace it with the same model after looking at the options. The "luxury" model was too heavy for backpacking, and the "backpacking" model was too short to support my back (I'm 6' 2"), so not worth even the lighter weight. I think this model is the sweet spot between comfort and weight.

        Campmor's price was $18, which suggests it's on clearance and will be discontinued. Too bad. So I decided to get it while I could. This is just a great piece of equipment.

              This is the 4th one I have purchased. I own 2 of them and gave away the others as gifts. I love my seat and don't go in the woods or my canoe without it. It is the difference maker for camping/backpacking in the great outdoors. It is simply the very best seat. Buy the self inflating mat that fits it and your all set for years to come.

                I have yet to use the chair on a trip but the trial set-up was intuitive and easy and I feel the 10 oz/300 g weight worth the comfort of a supportive seat while camping. I'd have preferred the 6 oz/180 g Compack version but wanted to use the chair with a Z-Lite sleeping pad with which, I understand, from on-line reseach, the Compack is incompatible.

                  This is a great accessory which I wouldn't be without. It makes your Thermarest sleeping mat into a really comfy chair and takes about a minute to set up. I even loosened the straps and slept on it one night when my poor old hips ached too much. The only drawback is the worry that I will get a puncture in my sleeping pad if I treat it too roughly or accidently sit it on top of sharp stones or thorns, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for casual day use or festival camping.

                        This one is a no brainer for me. I bought my original thermarest mat for an Alaskan kayak/camping trip 15 years ago and it has served me well since then. I recently got a thicker mat that is now my primary. This kit turns my old mat into a chair, but it's still a back up sleeping mat. The size and weight are fine for my intended purpose, it seems to be well made, and I like it better than the crazy creek chair my buddy loaned me. I'm 5'8", 180lbs. and wide through the shoulders. This fits me well enough with no binding or pinching.

                            It would work with a 20 inch wide z-lite.

                          Would this also work with the Thermarest Z-Lite?

                            Thermarest Z-lite specs say it is 21 incehs wide and teh chair kit is only 20inches wide so you may be able to squeeze it in but it won't lay straight. The edges will get crimped.
