MOUNTAIN DESIGNS HIGH BACK ADJUSTABLE CHAIR
AT 1.74kg the Mountain Designs High Back Adjustable Chair slots somewhere in the middle of our test fleet for weight, but scores bonus points for its compact 48cm H x 14cm W x 13cm D size when packed.
A hook-and-loop tab holds the poles together in a compact bundle when packed, and the chair can be built in either an upright or reclined position. The chair does not offer sleeve-tabs to aid assembly, but the oversized pole-pockets allow for easy set up; and three tension-straps allow tweaking of both the seat height and rigidity, a feature that became relevant when a certain tester’s backside sank to rest on the cross-pole.
Expanding to 102cm H x 58cm W x 69cm D when assembled, the chair delivers a unique front-to-rear crosspole that appears neither superior or inferior to the side-to-side design of the rest of our test chairs.
Provided are oversized mesh panels and a small accessory pocket but no drink holder, and the max 120kg weight capacity is lesser than others tested but irrelevant to many.
The Mountain Designs High Back Adjustable Chair doesn’t excel or disappoint dramatically in any area, instead it delivers quality and consistency at an exceptionally reasonable price point. RRP $99
