Central WA: who has a Kermit chair I may sit in?

Debating the eternal topic. No. Not oil: Camp chairs.

Anyone in Central WA have a Kermit I may sit in/on? Want to make sure my butt can appreciate a $140 chair.

Tried a bunch of different seats at REI. Need something that doesn't gouge my back or is too low to easily exit.

I'm west of Yakima (Naches). Anyone not-too-far-away? Lower valley? Eburg?

I'll provide a bottle of Ellensburg's finest: Irish Death.

Let me know, please.

Many thanks.

Yakima

kermit

if you're going to be in Tacoma any time soon, PM me.

However, I have the wide body version. Didn't need it, but there is more wriggle room.

Hey, thanks for the offer.
When my Mom was still living I was in Olympia quite frequently.
Don't see a trip West anytime soon. But if it occurs, may I see if I may interrupt you?

Thanks, again.

Happy to oblige if you're over here.

Have you considered this one from REI?

I have tried many camp chairs and stools and this one has been the best compromise of comfort, packed size, weight and cost that I have found so far. Plus I haven't broke it yet!

You carry that on your bike? The specs says it is more than 2 feet long.

I fell asleep in a Kermit chair once. I think it had the leg extensions though.

I've been using this but is a bit low to the ground. I'm short so not a problem and only need it to cook and put on boots.

I've got one and I'm in Renton, if you get to the big city. You will want the extensions.

I was at REI in Kennewick a few weeks ago and tried out their chairs, including the one mentioned above.
Too low for my tired knees and hips; getting out of it was a small hassle.
After ten minutes my back hurt.
Clever design. Must be right for many folks (the chair threads over in Equipment have many singing its praises). Not for me.
Thanks for the heads up.
I've PM'd the closest inmate to see if a trial sit might work.
Thanks all of you for offering ideas and potential trial.

I can see that. After a few too many nips on the ole Fireball, the helinox can get a bit difficult to get out of.
