Crazy Creek Introduces the New HexaLites Chairs

Crazy Creek introduces its lightest chairs ever for fall 2007 – the HexaLites.

A comfortable seat is something that shouldn't be taken for granted – whether at a ball game, in camp, or perched atop a mountain peak. But everyone from seasoned backpackers to soccer moms can agree that carrying around a comfortable chair isn't always convenient. Now, starting the next revolution in compact and comfy lightweight seats, Crazy Creek introduces its lightest chairs ever for fall 2007 – the HexaLites.

Found in the same family as the bestselling Crazy Creek Original Chair™ – which started the outdoor seating revolution 20 years ago – the HexaLites also offer outstanding comfort on any terrain and convenient adjustability that allow for a wide range of ultra-comfortable sitting positions. However, the new chairs, which are available as both the HexaLite Original (pictured left) and HexaLite LongBack (pictured below right), weigh in at just 14.8 oz and 18.5 oz, respectively – providing a satisfying seating experience in a remarkably lightweight and compact package.

Made from comfortable hexagonal-cored ½-inch closed-cell foam, the HexaLites feature a polyester mesh seating surface and ripstop nylon outer fabric. Like other Crazy Creek LongBack chairs, the HexaLite LongBack offers extra width and back height and can also double as a sleeping pad for ultra-light backpacking. Both chairs roll up compactly and can be secured with their included straps and handle.

As versatile as they are lightweight, the HexaLites are the perfect seating partner for any outdoor activity, whether they're set up on a field sideline or in a backcountry base camp. And no matter if they're stowed in the family car or strapped onto a backpack, their portable design takes little room and effort to haul.

The HexaLites are available in Black with Royal Trim or Forest Green with Black Trim. MSRP: $33 (Original); $44 (LongBack)
