Sturdy handmade waxed canvas seat designed to become a tripod chair.
This rugged folding canvas seat is perfect to bring out in the woods to create a tripod chair. The double-layered waxed canvas is double stitched with outdoor thread so it will hold up well to the elements. It is so nice to have somewhere to sit in your tent or camp that isn't on the ground and this also packs up flat and small. It measure 12" x 12" x 12" and has a sleeve on each corner for you to add sticks or poles to create a tripod seat.
The waxed canvas used on the product is made using a specialized process that was created in the 1800s. Martexin Original Wax has a superior finish that is made with an environmentally friendly blend of waxes that is non-hazardous. This fabric process creates a lifelong resistance to weather and it will develop a beautifully worn look. The 100 % cotton fabric will show scratches and become distressed but will continue to look better over time as it develops its own patina.
**Please note the first picture is an example of how the chair can be set up. The suggested weight limit is 200lbs. You will only be receiving the canvas seat and will have to create your own seat legs.

High quality, fast shipment, good folks to do business with!
Wanted to write this out to folks.... I gave my camp chair a 4-star review because I was worried about the stitching at the corners not being reinforced with rivets, etc. Heather got back to me promptly and explained the super-reinforced stitching that they do on these corners and that they proved to be stronger than using the rivets = a design intention, not a shortcoming. Upon closer inspection I can see the details and attention to strength and I wanted to explain that to folks who might be considering one of these. They are really awesome! Thanks PNW Bushcraft for the superior products and customer service!!
I really love the PNW Bushcraft products and this one is no different. Great size and the material is super.
One star off because the seams that will be most stressed using the chair, where the pocket closes on to the seat are not reinforced, and I will likely add rivets to all 6 of these points in the future when I see the stitching start to unravel.
I found out about these seat tops at a Gray Bearded Green Beret (GB2) training course. They prevented me from pilfering one from the school's supply, so I ordered my own the minute I got home. Beautiful, rugged (doesn't fall apart like knock-offs), and handmade in the US. Worth every penny. Just a word of caution - people will try to steal yours. I know I did.
I've packed this little seat out on 3 adventures now, and it is sturdy and well constructed. Stress points are triple stitched, and the canvas is well waxed. Did I mention, this thing weighs lesssss than even the best and lightest camping chair... LOL i never liked lugging those things out, even when car camping. When I'm traipsing with a pack, every ounce counts, and this is hands down the best camp seat solution I've found yet... this seat and a saw is lighter than any other chair system, and finding suitable wood has not been difficult at all. I string some 550 cord through the tag loop to keep it wrapped in its folded form, and fully ready for use (I always carry a Bahco saw, but the saw blades on Leatherman or Swiss knives are serviceable as well)
