This is the best chair I've used

I used this chair every clear night for about 3 years (before leaving it behind after one frustrating session). I'm now here to buy my second one. Before this I'd used several other types of astronomy chairs, the Starmaster and some wooden designs, but was always uncomfortable and often insecure in the footing. If there's a drawback at all to the Starbound, it's that the seat can be a little tricky to mount to the frame in the dark, but I gladly pay that small price for the stability and CO...

Poor Quality

The manufacturing process and quality control needs to be improved. The seat has good padding, but was assemble very poorly, padding is on crooked to the seat base and seams are poorly aligned. When assemble the seat is at an angle to the slide bars. The wear strip was missing from one side of the slide plate making it difficult to slide the seat assembly up and down. For the money I paid for this product I am very disappointed in the overall quality.

Very high quality chair

By

from Austin, Tx  -  Casual/ Recreational

I've been using a chair that I made myself, but wanted something more compact for traveling. I am very impressed with the stability of the StarBound Chair and the high quality materials used. The only thing shy of perfection is that the seat must be removed by unscrewing the two large knobs that hold the slider bar to store the chair as flat as possible. The large knobs are easy to work so I won't deduct for this. Unlike other sliding seat chairs (including the one I built) the seat has just the right amount of friction and stays put when you want it to, but moves easily when you want to adjust it. The chair is very compact by not light weight. The steel tubing is strong and substantial. Overall I'm very pleased.

Great concept chair

By

from Siloam Springs, aR  -  Casual/ Recreational

I am not a star gazer, but cannot stand for long. Those carry chairs and lawn chairs are to flimsy and low to the ground for me. Bad knees make it hard to get up. We go to Auctions and music in the park kind of outings. It is a little heavy but so much sturdier. I love it. Small enough we can move it around easy. Adjustable height so I can just take my weight off of my knees.

Don't waste your money

By

from Dallas,TX  -  Casual/ Recreational

After assembling the unit, the seat fits at an angle to the metal posts. In addition, the assembly is warped, resulting in severe rocking of the legs as only two legs make contact with the ground. If a company can ship something this horrible, then they clearly do not care about delivering a quality product to their consumer. I will avoid this company from now on.[...] Its not even worth returning. Lesson learned!
