anyone carry a chair along?

Postby Luckyg71 » Thu Aug 10, 2006 12:06 pm

Does anyone here carry a chair with them? I have seen people sitting on the little tri-leg chairs, but where do they carry them on their bag??

Depends on how many I'm playing with and if it's a tourny (bag tag/doubles events included), I got mine from REI that has a loop with a carabiner that i strap on a plastic hoop on my bag. Some just carry theirs.

I carry a tripod chair. Only really for two-day, four-round tournaments, but sometimes for a two-rounder if I know it's a full field and there'll be a lot of backups.

I typically just carry mine. The walks between times that I use it are not long enough for me to clip it on. At the end of the round, I'll clip the carabiner on my chair to one of the loops on my bag, just so they stay together.

Same here...I usually just carry mine. They're great for slow league/tourney play. They also come in handy when the ground is wet/muddy/snowy and you don't want to set your bag on it.

Also, there's one brand of chair (can't remember who makes it) that is much lighter and has a much larger top than the standard ones that have been around for a few years. These lighter ones are the same base chair that Huklab customizes and sells on their website.

Yeah, I got my chair from Duluth Trading Company. It's made by some Swedish company, holds up to 450 pounds and has legs that extend out so that you can sit down without being practically on the ground. (For the record, I'm 6'6", 290, so I appreciate the high quality craftsmanship that allows me to not break the chair and to sit more than a foot and a half off the ground.)

I only really pull my out for tournaments. The slower pace of a tourney lets it get more use. But in casual play, even in packs of 6 or so for doubles, Im never sitting long enough to make it worth the trouble to bring.

ALso, In tournaments I use it a lot to place my bag on, so its not sitting in wet grass all the time with the early tee times.

Quick-E Seat is the shit for those of us with a larger portage...
I'm very happy with mine, very durable and convenient (what with the quick strap and all...)
