What we like:

Our favorite low-slung model.

What we don’t:

Unless you need a low chair, there are more comfortable options.

Like we discussed in the previous paragraph, chairs with low seat height are ideal for areas where they are required for outdoor concerts or other occasions that require you to be at a low level such as the beach. From the various chair styles there is one called the Alps Mountaineering Rendezvous is a top choice for comfort. The chair is positioned at a recline to let you stretch your legs out–and it’s made of a high-quality material. It’s also an excellent price, with a range of $50 to $70 on the internet. It’s not able to raise your seat like it does when you buy other models like the ENO Lounger DL however, and you don’t have to pay for it.

In a campsite at a campsite, we encounter the Rendezvous to be a little low and less comfortable like with an upright design (or the ENO, which is adjustable) however, we aren’t a fan of an integrated Cup storage space (although it’s too far away). The 600-denier fabric and powder coated steel frame are a bit over-built for their intended use and, aside from costing an extra bit and a little more, we’re not complaining about the durability of the frame. In the end it’s a great choice. Rendezvous is a good investment for the long term, but it’s not suitable for all. And if you enjoy the minimalist design of the Rendezvous but are looking to investigate different options, take a look at the REI Co-op’s Camp Low Chair, Mountain Summit Gear’s Ground Chair and Helinox’s exclusive Incline Festival Chair, which has adjustable legs to enhance stability or recline.
