The First-Ever Swinging and Reclining Camp Chair

The First-Ever Swinging and Reclining Camp Chair

NEMO Equipment has just announced the first-ever swinging and reclining camp chair! The Stargaze™ Recliner is a suspended engineered chair that allows the dynamic swinging motion of a hammock with hands-free ‘just-lean-back’ reclining for a relaxed view of the night sky or upright socializing around the campfire. After four years in development and testing, the chair is now available for purchase.

We used a system of pulleys and custom-designed hardware to achieve just the right balance of body weight and pressure needed for reclining, regardless of the person’s weight. We invented Super Lock™ stainless steel hardware to easily and securely connect the chair seat to the frame. We experimented with a variety of materials before landing on aircraft-grade aluminum poles for their strength and flexibility.
— NEMO Founder and CEO, Cam Brensinger

The chair is made of breathable, weatherproof mono-filament mesh, has a media pocket and drink holder, and packs in seconds into a molded carrying case with a shoulder strap.

There are three models available, the Stargaze (classic model), the Stargaze Luxury (deepest reeling action and adjustable headrest), and the Stargaze Low (a low profile sitting experience). They are available first from REI in the States, then will start appearing at a gear store near you.
