Behold, The $500 Carbon Fiber Camp Chair

New for 2018, GCI just announced a carbon fiber camp chair. The price? A whopping $500.

Now we all love a good camp chair around the fire. But GCI Outdoor takes this to the next level.

The GCI CF Lounger weighs a scant five pounds. Sure, that’s a lot more than your hiking chair, but this thing is full size. Moreover, it’s tested to hold somewhere in the neighborhood of 350 pounds or more. The brand hasn’t finalized capacity ratings, but as they noted to me, “if you fit, it’ll hold you.”

We checked one out at the Outdoor Retailer convention in Salt Lake City last month. Yes, it’s overkill. But we must admit, it’s beautiful.

The carbon fiber supports a fine mesh that should be breezy on your wealthy butt. So if you’ve got the Benjamins, this just might be the chair for you.

Pair it with a new yacht or Earth Roamer, and it might not be the most ostentatious part of the kit!
