Enjoy fall weather with these clever chairs
The Voyager chair from PARKIT was a Kickstarter success in 2020, promising an outdoor chair unlike any other. Featuring aircraft-grade aluminum, a carefully calibrated seat angle and even a built-in cooler, it became an instant sensation among outdoor enthusiasts tired of flimsy or uncomfortable chairs. It has sold out many times, so don’t miss your chance to enjoy fall adventures while it’s still available.
About PARKIT chairs
After finding disappointment in many outdoor chairs, the founder of PARKIT set out to construct a high-quality chair from premium materials that would stand the test of time. The resulting Voyager chairs are lightweight, portable and packed with helpful features. The chairs have a distinctive retro design, and they’re easy to convey to and from your campsite (or your tailgate) thanks to adjustable backpack straps.
PARKIT chairs also give back: with every purchase, the company plants a mangrove tree through its partnership with SeaTrees. SeaTrees works with local communities in Indonesia to plant mangrove trees, regenerating the ecosystem, pulling carbon from the atmosphere and building more resilient communities. The company is also part of 1% for the Planet, a collective of businesses that donate 1% of sales to environmental organizations.
Voyager chair features
The company’s flagship Voyager chair features a classic design with modern upgrades. It’s made from aircraft-grade aluminum, so it’s lightweight and resists rust. It sits 16 inches off the ground and is ergonomically angled with a comfortable recline.
To make the outdoor experience even more enjoyable, the Voyager chair also features a built-in cupholder that can be switched to either side of the chair. Plus, you’ll find a detachable cooler and storage compartment conveniently attached to the underside of the seat. The cooler can hold up to 20 cans and keeps them cold for up to eight hours. Stash keys, sunscreen and other small items in the waterproof pockets on top of the cooler.
There are two versions of the Voyager chair. The Voyager LTE features the same materials, style and most of the same features as the Voyager, but it doesn’t come with the cooler. However, that makes it a bit more affordable than the standard Voyager.
