RedHead Turkey Lounger Folding Hunting Chair - Realtree Xtra
RedHead Turkey Lounger
I originally bought this chair for turkey hunting in October 2014. I killed a fall turkey in it on the first use. It worked so well and was so comfortable I used during the Missouri and Illinois firearms deer seasons. I killed deer from it during both seasons. The setup options are end less. The chair is very comfortable and easy to tote in and out. The pack that I use has a rain flap so I put it under the flap and cinch it down. I don't even know its there. The carry strap pulled off my chair, like other reviews said. I reattached in a different spot on the chair by using black wire ties through the strap loops and around the tubes. The new location has made it easier to carry if I throw it over my shoulder. I very much look forward to spring gobbler season. This chair will be a real asset.

I bought this unit for turkey hunting, and it does not disappoint. It is very comfortable, and durable. I like the legs being separate and that you can dig one or two legs down a bit if you need to level it.
It weighs a bit more than what I was using, but well worth the added carrying effort.
I sat several hours in it on more than one occasion and had great results. Having this type of back support, and the flexibility of setting up in weeds or smaller timber is a bonus.
The only negative was the black back of the chair. When I walked around my set, that black back was very obvious. It could better be camouflage.
Similar items were more at other supplies, and had less weight capability.

Beats the soggy ground
I know this was intended for turkey hunters, but I purchased this chair for sitting in the reeds and along the pond (it's usually dry on the bank). Folds up and fits in the stow area of a kayak. No armrests to get in the way of shotgun swing. Only negative, if you can call it that, is that it is comfortable and I may have dozed off and immediately missed wood ducks plopping in my decoy spread. AND it makes no noise when you shift your weight while sitting in it ( I am 225+) and scaring off the game!

I just received this chair today and I'm impressed. I needed to find a chair to turkey hunt in because I have back trouble. It seems to be well built and is quick and easy to set up and fold back to it's closed position. The chair has a velcro strap at the top that holds it closed while carrying and a large adjustable carry strap. I sat in it for a while and it's very comfortable, I should be able to sit for hours without any back or leg pain and I won't have to hunt a tree to set up for my hunt. Just find a bush to back up into and I'll be ready to go. I really didn't want to have to carry any more stuff with me, but this lounger will be a much appreciated addition to my turkey hunting gear. Can't wait to put it to work!!
