Kermit Chair

The Kermit Chair was designed in 1989 by a motorcycle rider. There was not a comfortable chair on the market at the time that was compact enough to carry and pack tight, so he designed and built the Kermit Chair. The Kermit Chair evolved over the years and has become a cult favorite among BMW motorcycle campers, but it is equally suitable for use by all. Thousands of Kermit Chairs have been sold, and the chair has been sold primarily by word of mouth.

Kermit Chair

The Kermit Chair is a lightweight portable chair that delivers comfort and elegance not to be found in other camp chairs. Unlike modern camp chairs that are constructed with nylon and cheap tubing that is riveted together, the Kermit Chair is constructed of honest, traditional materials.

Black Kermit Chair Red Kermit Chair Forest Green Kermit Chair Navy Kermit Chair

Kermit Chairs are available in four different colors: Black, Red, Forest Green, and Navy.

Kermit Chair

Seat height is 11.5" and the chair weighs 5.3 lbs. The low seat height is a design feature to make the chair as small as practicable for packing and also to relieve the weight on the user's thighs while seated. Most modern camp chairs have the user seated in an uncomfortable position, with the cloth seat digging into the user's thighs. The Kermit Chair permits the user to sit comfortably.

Kermit Chair

This photo illustrates the height of the Kermit Chair next to some kiddie camp chairs. Unlike the kiddie camp chairs, nothing digs into the user's legs. And unlike the kiddie chairs, the Kermit Chair features armrests.

Kermit Chair

The armrests are solid and actually provide support for the arms, unlike modern camp chairs with their cloth armrests that sag.

Kermit Chair

Every Kermit Chair has a five-year limited warranty against defects in workmanship and materials which impact the function of the Kermit Chair. This warranty excludes damage caused by accidents or abuse. The Kermit Chair Company also provides a full-service repair facility for broken or tattered Kermit Chairs. A Kermit Chair can provide many decades of service and is a lifetime investment. If you don't lean the chair backward onto the rear legs, you will not have any problems with breakages.

Kermit Chair Inside Pelican 1510NF

A folded Kermit Chair and carry bag are small enough to fit inside a Pelican 1510NF Protector Case. The Kermit Chair is even compact enough for carry-on airline luggage. Transporting a Kermit Chair in a Pelican 1610NF or 1650NF presents no problems at all.

Assembling a Kermit Chair is very simple and takes less than a minute, although first-timers may be baffled if they try to assemble a Kermit Chair in the field without having read the instructions. Photo by David Shechter.

Kermit Chair

When transporting your Kermit Chair around camp, it is common to fold it and carry it briefcase style.

Kermit Chair Cupholder

The Kermit Chair Cupholder was designed with this in mind, and will remain oriented vertically when the Kermit Chair is transported in this fashion.

The Kermit Chair Cupholder takes up very little room when not in use.

Kermit Chair

Kermit Chair products made of wood. Why wood? Why not plastic or aluminum? Because wood has a natural beauty and elegance that plastic or aluminum cannot provide. Not everything in life is about sheer performance. The wood-framed Kermit Chair performs admirably with more than sufficient strength for its task, and it does so with a charm and elegance that a plastic chair cannot match. Wood is warm to the touch and very beautiful. It is much more enjoyable to use than plastic or aluminum. And it only gets better with age. The same cannot be said for plastic or aluminum. Hence the wood.

Krieghoff K-80 And Benelli M1 Super 90

The same holds true for the stocking of nice firearms. This Krieghoff K-80 double and Benelli M1 Super 90 self-loading repeater are contrasts in style. The double's operating principles go back centuries while the Super 90's inertia-locking method of operation is only a few decades old. However, both weapons are stocked with walnut. While synthetic stocks are undeniably more weather-resistant, not subject to ambient moisture and thermal deformation, and cheaper to produce, they look cheap and detract from the appeal of these fine weapons. Thus, both weapon types, both old and new, are stocked in walnut to enhance their beauty and appeal to their owner. Synthetic stocks on these weapons would rob them of their personality, individuality (no two pieces of wood are identical), and charm.

Barbour Beaufort Waterproof Jacket

We sell many products that perform extremely well, but do not abandon aesthetics for the sake of sheer performance. One example of this philosophy is the Barbour Waterproof Clothing we prefer over Gore-Tex and other modern clothing. The Barbour Beaufort shown above is a medium-weight shooting jacket for year-round use, and features a sage-colored, 100% waxed-cotton shell with a 100% cotton tartan lining. The Beaufort is made from honest materials, namely cotton, brass, and natural waterproof dressing. Like most high-quality items, the Beaufort just gets better and more appealing with age and use, and it will provide a lifetime of use and enjoyment to its owner. The same cannot be said for Gore-Tex clothing.

OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Moon Watch

This OMEGA Speedmaster Professional is yet another example of a product we sell that is not based on pure performance. That is not to say that the Speedmaster Professional does not perform well. However, we must admit that the Speedmaster Professional's excellent performance has been eclipsed by more modern quartz and digital watches, which keep better time, have fewer moving parts, are more shock-resistant, and so on. The modern watches are better in every way except one: they look cheap. The Speedmaster Professional performs admirably and is more than accurate enough for the task. More importantly, it performs its task with an elegance and appeal that more modern wristwatches cannot and never will.

Snow Peak Titanium Sport, Carry-On Chopsticks, and Three-Piece Titanium Silverware Set

While many of our products are in the luxury genre, most of our products are based on pure performance and are constructed of the latest high-tech materials. We are all about high-tech when the performance advantages are such that these products cannot be disregarded in favor of more traditional designs. For eating in the field, our favorite cutlery is from Snow Peak. Pictured left to right are the Snow Peak Titanium Spork, Snow Peak Carry-On Chopsticks, and the Snow Peak Three-Piece Titanium Silverware Set. Titanium is substantially lighter than stainless steel. More important than weight is titanium's eminent suitability for utensil construction. Titanium is the perfect material for field cutlery as it has no metallic smell or taste (unlike aluminum or stainless steel), will not corrode or stain when left wet or exposed to acidic foods (unlike aluminum and stainless steel), and is very strong and will not melt (unlike plastic). Titanium is also easily serviced in the field, as a simple rinse with water and a wipe-down with a rag are all that is necessary. Going with wooden or steel cutlery over titanium cutlery in the name of tradition is another mistake.

Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall Cup 450

The benefits of titanium technology also apply to mugs. The Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall Cup 450 is an ultra-lightweight mug that provides superior heat and cold insulation due to its double-wall construction.

Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall Cup 450

Hot liquids stay hotter and cold drinks stay colder inside the Titanium Double Wall Cup 450. Furthermore, titanium has very low thermal conductivity. Therefore, the heat from hot drinks will never reach the lip of the cup, but your drinks will remain piping hot longer. Titanium also has no metallic smell or taste to contaminate its contents or the taste therefrom.

Victorinox SwissTool Spirit Victorinox SwissTool Spirit

If you are looking for an excellent multitool, we highly recommend the Victorinox SwissTool Spirit. The SwissTools are to multitools what Snow Peak utensils are to field cutlery. Both represent the best of their type and are without peer.

Engel 45 Freezer Fridge

For the ultimate in civilized car camping, we recommend the Engel Freezer Fridge or the ARB Freezer Fridge.

Fresh Fruit From Engel Or ARB Freezer Fridges

With the Engel or ARB Freezer Fridges, there is no melting ice. Sandwich ingredients stay cold and fresh and dry. Meats and cheeses do not go bad. Bread does not get soggy. Fruits and vegetables stay nice and fresh. When cut, the cuts are clean and not smeared because the fruits and vegetables remain so crispy fresh within the Engel or ARB units.
