Default Ground Blind Chair

Anyone know of a good ground blind chair? I have a stool without a back and it sucks.

Looking for something that can fold down small to strap on my back with my pack. Ive looked at the black out folding chairs, but they are still bulky, comfy but bulky.

I think it is a trade off between comfort and bulk. I like mesh backed office chairs personally.

I purchased the blackout several years ago. Nice thing is you can level it on any terrain. has armrests. Probably not as comfy as a nice bag chair, but its definetly a nice hunting ground blind chair.

I have a couple of these that I like.

A little bulky for carrying around and it doesn't have arms to get in my way.

Oh man that Chama chair is pretty rad. Thats the thing about public lands, gotta be easy to carry all your gear in and comfy. Maybe I will just forego my popup blind and go with the mesh webbing and a better chair and trust my camo to do its job.

I just got that new Cabelas comfort max 360 mag elite blind stool and man is that thing full of features. I haven't put in a sit with it yet but I like everything I've seen so far (except the weight).

Don't waste any time, buy this chair.. The best dang chair you'll ever buy.. I hate buying twice or more!! In the last 5 years I've purchased 3 or 4 chairs, they all suck !!

This chair will change your life and you'll only need to buy ONE !!

For my pop up blind, I just use a 5 gallon bucket with seat lid. Helps packing things in and out too. I'd definitely want something more permanent if I had a full-time blind.

This is what I do, and it's great: go to your local sporting goods store and pick out a camping folding chair that is comfortable with a high back. Some even come with built in pillows. Now, take it home and simply cut off the tubing for the arm rests. Just make sure you leave enough tubing to where the seats leave won't slip out. Then, at the end of those tubes, simply take black duct tape and wrap the ends. And now, you have a super comfortable chair that will fold and have its own carrier. I also bungee cord it to my pop up back pack so it's easy to carry as well. You're welcome

Chama chair with a Mystery Ranch Pup-up day pack. I'm pretty happy with this setup. Thanks for all the suggestions.

A guy had one of these chairs at a local archery range here in SA. He let me sit in it and try it out. Very solid chair. Fairly light too. Boy was it comfortable. Said he bought it from midwayusa. Cheaper than their website. Might be my next chair. Still, it is on the pricey side. Right now I am using a double bull blind chair which is fairly comfortable. Just don't like that it doesn't rotate and isn't as comfortable as that Millennium chair. I actually took a picture of it so when I was ready I could look it up.

Millennium is the way I would go.

I have 2 of the lock on stands and they are the only ones I can stay in all day and not be hurting

They have even branched out into the marine market

I use a modified director type folding chair with the flip used shelf. I extend the backrest with a couple short lengths of pvc and a good seat cushion and for ground level blinds I also cut a couple inches off the legs so that I don’t have to sit hunched to see out the windows.

I like a director chair with either an attached tray or some kind of bag on the side for a rangefinder and a drink. I found some crazy cheap at academy one time and they have lasted three years with one seam busted on one chair. Not bad for the money

I want to check out the Chama Chair. For a smaller, lighter option, I have used this for 2 years hunting now and really like it:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Whooo just saw the price, and way cheaper!

Ouch! That link points to one of those 3 legged stools. Done those. Way to uncomfortable after about 30 min.

The only problem I have with the Millennium is it tends to put me to sleep. Hands down the most comfortable I have tried. Con is it is pricey.

I got the Chama chair at $50 off regular price on their site, and it arrived pretty qickly from the Austin area.

I took it on a Colorado Elk hunt, and it performed exceptionally well.

Highly recommended.

I know you already got your Chama but for those still considering check out Chairpak.com.
They are a little on the heavy side at 7lbs but it's a chair and a big backpack with lots of storage.

The Huntmore was what I was going to recommend as well. Legs adjust in height so you won't have a problem shooting out of a taller blind.
