Designed in 1855 by Joseph Beverly Fenby (photo right) and finally patented in 1881, this exemplary and timeless example of a comfy folding chair made his way through a long history of adventures, safaris, base camps, expeditions and an even for today surprisingly small packed size, until we finally found it in the here offered, completely convincing version in the USA.
The stable frame is made of oiled Oregon cedar. This type of wood is light, durable and inherently highly resistant to insects, fungi and corrosive substances. The solid joint parts are of course made of stainless steel. Plastic washers ensure a smooth and quiet folding function. The resilient seat panel is made of washable, breathable and heavy 18 oz. Duck canvas of color (of course ...) "British Tan".
Because in this ingenious construction, the insensitive material is simply hung in the frame (and secured by push buttons against gusts of wind), both parts can be separated quickly and individually folded or rolled much smaller than is the case today in a more common designs. The bag is made of sturdy nylon fabric, inside is a separate bag made of mesh fabric for protection and storage of the seat roll.
