We are big Yeti fans... we have coolers, cups, water jugs, even the dog bowl. We mostly use Cabela's points from our credit card to buy them. And $300 for a camping chair is stupid. My favorite chair cost $50 and has hydraulic rockers on it.


Same here , bought a couple of those fold up rockers, caught them on sale for around $40 at Camping World . They fold up nice, and have a handy carry handle.

I've got a Yeti cooler that is XX years old and still keeps stuff cold very well (it is in Alaska though..). Same thing with a Yeti hot cup. ...and those are worth the 20? 40? percent premium to me.

However, even though with my build I have to get the super heavy duty camp chairs, paying 200 - 300% for a Yeti branded product over a store brand isn't in the cards.

Owner of multiple YETI coolers, multiple YETI cups and a few other brands of similarly constructed coolers. I a.ways chuckle when people say they aren’t worth the money and that the product is over-hyped. The brand is irrelevant to me, but the quality of the product speaks for itself.

Brand equals status, confidence, spirit of accomplishment, pride, etc. It sometimes also equals a statement of quality. Everyone on this board is guilty of it to some extent. Raise your hand if you have never ever, EVER paid more for something just because it was a certain brand...perhaps even because you expected it to be better based on the name. Maybe you paid $5K or $10K more to get that truck with the certain trim package that made you “feel better”. Maybe you buy your shoes from a department store instead of WalMart. Maybe you like Charmin UltraSoft instead of the commercial quality stuff you can get for a fraction of the price...which does the same job. But maybe you just haven’t YET decided to spend a little more on a camping chair.

Yup, but it still absolutely baffles me when I watch The Price Is Right and see a few purses (basically a couple pieces of leather sewn together and emblazoned with some 'designer's' name) end up costing the same or more than a very technologically-advanced motorcycle!! Really?? Craziness!

I'd like to sit in one to see how comfortable it is. I have a Yeti travel mug, and it is the best travel mug I've owned so far (keeps coffee hot for hours in the winter).

I used to make fun of any camp chair that cost over $19.99 - thinking any more was a waste of money. Until I sat in a "higher end" chair (~$50) and thought "holy mackerel, I didn't know folding camp chairs can be comfortable!".

I don't see myself spending that kind of money on a camp chair, but I would like to see (sit) one in person.

After you buy the chair...maybe you could buy a couple pair of these.
