In the world of outdoor gear there were hammocks and there were chairs, two completely separate items with completely separate uses. No longer is this the case. The miracle of modern science has brought these two beloved camp staples together in a hybrid blend that offers any gear closet an upgrade in comfort: the camping hammock chair. It’s a loungey, spacious unit that still packs down small. It's a comfort-conscious adventurer’s best friend. But what really makes a hammock chair different from other camp chairs? What specs set it apart? And what are five places you’ll never want to go without it? We unpack these questions and more in this grand introduction of the CMT hammock chair.
Say hello to the most comfortable camping chair to take on all of your new adventures: The Cascade Mountain Tech Hammock Chair. This hybrid design combines the best aspects of hammock lounging and camp-chair chilling. Let’s unpack the features that make this chair unique.
The strong, foldable aluminum frame is reinforced at the joints allowing the chair to hold up to 250 lbs. It’s very durable. We’re talking pass-it-on-to-your-grandkids durable.
With adjustable leg heights, this chair allows you to either sit low to the ground (we call this “beach mode”), or higher off the ground (“camp mode”). This adaptability let’s you adjust how you use the chair to fit the ground surface of where you’re sitting. Beach mode props you 10 inches off the ground so you can keep your beach day snacks within reach. Camp mode props you 16 inches off the ground, perfect for lounging by, and tending to, a campfire.
The Cascade Mountain Tech Hammock Chair weighs only 5 lbs. This makes it easy to transport, store, and take on any car-supported adventure or short-distance hike. This chair is also a backyard champ – light enough to whip off the top shelf in the garage and se up on the back porch when work from home turns into happy hour.
In addition to this chair’s lightweight design, the included carry bag with adjustable shoulder straps makes it ultra-portable. This storage bag makes transporting the chair easy and allows for it to be stored neatly while simultaneously protecting it.
No one likes when their chair sinks in the sand at the beach. The sand feet on the new Cascade Mountain Tech Hammock Chair prevent sinking into soft ground, so you’ll stay situated comfortable off the sand or gravel. And when the midday sun really starts baking, the mesh back, which allows for increased airflow, will be your best friend.
Maybe one of the most important features when thinking about buying a chair is comfort. Folks love hammocks because they provide true comfort in scenic outdoor settings. With this in mind, we’ve engineered everyone’s favorite features of a hammock into the new hammock chair. The innovative sling design provides your body with a hammock-like cradle. Meanwhile the breathable mesh back, built in padded headrest, and armrests give you the amenities of your favorite recliner.
We can’t forget about the organization features of this chair. The Cascade Mountain Tech Hammock Chair includes a built-in cup holder and two built-in cargo side pockets that are great for storing your phone, keys, book, or other adventure essentials.

Note on Accessibility
Increasing access to the outdoors, and to the gear needed to enjoy it, informs everything we do at CMT. We believe that you shouldn’t have to choose between camp comfort and your kid’s college fund. Still, it can sometimes be hard to find gear that’s not discouragingly expensive. At under $70, the price of the new Hammock chair might be the best feature of this modern marvel.
