Mobility + Durability = Easy Travels
There is a big difference between summer and winter fishing. Cheap folding chairs are going to leave your rear-end FREEZING, especially if you’re in a mediocre tent.
Avoid at all costs those beach or lawn chairs because they are a safety hazard.
Let’s be honest, a lot of anglers lean back in their chairs. That combined with a cold slippery ground (ICE) is the recipe for an abrupt lapse in the legs of the chair.
Quick To Dry After Getting Wet
If your set on fishing with Adirondack or beach chair, choose your chair wisely.
Adirondack chair is awkward to fit in your car and heavy to carry along with your fishing gear (multiple trips)
Fold-up beach chairs on the flip side are lightweight and easy for travel, but not designed for winter sitting!
- That’s why a weather resistant chair that can handle the cold is a must have!
Handle Being Dropped & Banged Up
Let’s face it, you will probably end up dropping your chair at one point or another along the journey. That, in combination with freezing temperatures, can cause the frame of less expensive chairs to break apart.
Extra Storage Space, For Fishing Gear
If you’re sitting in a bucket, backpack, or heavy-duty outdoor chair. Chances are a few zip-up pockets are below or on the sides of your seat.
- Be sure you have enough space for all the essentials like fishing gear, snacks, extra gloves, wallet, and cellphone.
Ergonomic Features For Ice Fishing
Not every ice-fishing chair equips with a high backrest that curves with your body and supports healthy posture. If mobility is more important than I recommend traveling with a backpack or bucket styled ice-fishing chair. A few things to look for.
- Zip-Up Storage Space
- Strong Steel Frame
- Weather Resistant Fabric
- Fits In Your Vehicle (Fold-Up)
