You know that stuff you never even think about when you travel?
Well, we thought about it
I was excited to find that the Alite Mantis chair was back! I’ve had one for years but unfortunately it broke and when I went to file my warranty claim with them I found that they were no Longer in business. I’ve kept the chair hoping one day I’d find spare parts on eBay. When I found that the chair was back I quickly ordered one. The new chair seems great. I haven’t used it but it does appear to have thicker fabric and a slightly different bar connections. I’m still super bummed bec one of the reasons I loved the original was the size that it folded down to—it fit perfectly at the bottom of my daypack. This new one is much longer and definitely less convenient to pack.
I bought the hooded neck pillow for my first deployment over seas. It was the best thing I could’ve purchased to help make 17 hours of flight time more bearable. Now I’ve been using it nightly to sleep on my bunk, and I love it.
American made, great quality materials, super comfy memory foam interior and fleece liner, intuitive design putting the hood on there and the little pocket to store the travel bag. Very packable. I love everything about it for a neck pillow.
I think I’ll try the travel pillow next!
It would be nice if some of the stitching/drawstring points were slightly reinforced, idk how, but for folks in the military if taking this into the field, it could use that extra level of durability to make it last that much longer. Everything gets worked to the bone, especially in the infantry.
Unpacked both chairs and assembled them. No issues so far. Getting ready for spring/summer backpacking and can’t wait to test them in the outdoors.
I absolutely love my trunk tek hammock. I use them while camping or just relaxing at home. They are easy to set up and take dowm.
