Comparison between REI flexlite chair and Target camping chair

The 2014 Tour de France route will be announced tomorrow October 23rd.  I anticipate an adventure following it, so I bought a lightweight and small foldable chair to take on my trip. It will provide a comfortable place to sit while I hold my preferred spot at the start or finish of a stage.

After 3 seconds, the Target chair is ready to sit in and the REI chair is only unpacked.The photos show the highly portable chair ($69.00 US) next to typical soccer chair from Target ($9.99 US) to give perspective.  I also compared the amount of time it takes to set up.

Compare the size of the two chairs.

The Target chair takes 3 seconds to unfold. The REI chair takes about 3 minutes and I was able to only after consulting instructions. Both are comfortable. The REI chair is obviously much lighter and more compact.

It is another step in preparation for a splendid adventure.
