CLIQ Chair Review One Year Later

Looking for a CLIQ chair review? I’ve been using mine for over a year and today, I am going to tell you all about it. First, we will go over specs, then we will talk about my impressions after a year of use. I am not sponsored by CLIQ, I purchased this chair with my own funds and I wanted to share my experience with you and hopefully help you make a purchasing decision.

My Review of the CLIQ Chair

First, it is more like the size of a liter bottle of water, or even a 2 liter. Not a 16.9 or 20 oz for sure. I think the whole “size of a water bottle” schtick is just marketing and it is not accurate. That being said, the CLIQ chair does close up compactly and doesn’t take up much space. I think this is what the manufacturers were trying to communicate with the water bottle size comparison.

Next, the weight of the CLIQ chair at 3.5 pounds will be light for some people, heavy for others. I did a 3 chair comparison last summer with the other two chairs coming in around 2 pounds and 14 oz respectively, so it really depends on how you plan on using the CLIQ chair. I took it on a backpacking trip and it was a bit too heavy and took up too much space in my backpack. But, I think it works great if you are car camping, or to the beach. I bring it with as an extra chair when we are in the Airstream as well. The CLIQ chair can be used pretty much anywhere.

Construction and Use of CLIQ chair

The construction of the CLIQ chair is super high quality. The frame is aircraft grade aluminum (is there even such a thing? I think this another instance of creative marketing). It just feels high quality. The chair cover is attached permanently to the frame, so no need to snap that on later. The CLIQ chair is made from ripstop ballistic nylon and has double seams for strength. I like that is has a weight capacity of 300 pounds. It makes it a very versatile seating option.

Opening and closing the CLIQ chair is a breeze. You just undo the strap and telescope the legs. The chair cover is permanently attached to the frame.

When sitting in the CLIQ chair, it has a bit of a rocking motion. It is not a fully rigid chair. It is a very comfortable chair. I used it during my hot tent campout this winter when I was cooking my meals on my wood stove, and I was comfortable the entire time. I have also used the CLIQ chair in my Airstream renovation project and it worked great.


Now lets talk price. As of recording the CLIQ chair is still selling for $99.95, which is the same price I paid a year ago, and with the inflationary economy we are currently experiencing in summer 2022, I think it is pretty amazing that CLIQ hasn’t raised their prices. Is it worth a hundred bucks? I don’t think so. I would put a price point of maybe $75 tops.

That being said, it is a super high quality camp chair. I know I will be using mine for years to come. The high quality construction, ease of use, and portability of this chair make it a great option. If you are looking for something to take with you on a backwoods camping trip, I wouldn’t recommend the CLIQ, it is too heavy and bulky for that. But, if you need a camp chair to bring with you to a BBQ, the park, a concert, the beach, or car camping, the CLIQ chair will work beautifully and last for many years.
