NEMO Moonlite Elite Reclining Backpacking Chair


Less Weight, Same Comfort

When you’re packing in all your gear, every gram matters, but thanks to the ultralight NEMO Moonlite Elite Backpacking Chair, there’s minimal penalty for bringing a comfortable seat along for your trip. Think of it as a stripped down version of the classic Moonlite, only built with lighter materials and skeletonized frame hubs to shed unnecessary weight. Thankfully, it retains the reclining design and surprisingly comfortable feel that has endeared the original version to so many seasoned campers. And for use in sandy environments, the included tool roll-style carrying case doubles as a platform that perfectly fits the chair’s feet, so you can increase the surface area and stop sinking into soft surfaces.
