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.

Good deal on the Chama chair... I have one and think it is awesome!! It's a bit on the heavy side but extremely comfortable and well built...
