I don't recall being as disappointed with a purchase in a long time. I've had two $5 camping chairs (NWT) that I bought at Kmart about 8 to 9 years ago. They have been through hell: camping, concerts, t-ball games, the beach, parks, etc. They're still in one piece. Looks like they'll easily last another 10 years. I vainly admit that it bothered me that they're not a better known brand. I booked a glamping trip at state park Jonathan Dickinson April 5th through the 8th, 2018. South Florida. Great weather. Flat surface, mostly grass or sand. I thought it was the perfect time to upgrade my camping chairs. I have MANY Coleman products: coolers, lights, stakes, chairs, etc. All have been 100% excellent quality. Naturally I thought these chairs would be a nice upgrade. First, I did not like the quality of the carry case they come in. I've seen better, and they didn't meet my expectation. Felt thin. Not confident it would last. Also, the pockets that the chairs bring make the chair a bit bulky, and it's a tight fit getting them in the case. They could've been a tiny bit larger. But the worst part is the picture I attached. When the 3 day glamping trip came to an end, I realized the leg was already broken/out of place. I don't think I sat on the chair for more than 3 hours in the entire trip. It was the first and only time I used the chair. I don't know if it came like that, or if it happened in the trip. The chairs were not mistreated. I almost feel like Coleman just slapped their name on an inferior product. Now they're just their taking up space. Definitely the worst product I've bought on Amazon. TERRIBLE QUALITY. Especially for a Coleman.
