Features of a Low Profile Hunting Chair

So, the obvious question that needs answering is: why should you use a low-profile hunting chair as opposed to any other low to the ground camping or outdoor chair?

This is a reasonable question and, when you consider other outdoor chairs set low to the ground are somewhat cheaper, there should be some reasonable explanation as to the points of difference.

We can pinpoint 5 areas where the chairs designed for hunting are different to other chairs.

  • Comfort
  • Noise Suppression
  • Weight
  • Portability
  • Camo Finishes

Comfort

The areas in which chair manufacturers deal with comfort issues in their chairs can be seen up front with the design of many of the turkey hunting chairs.

The obvious one is the mesh material used in many of the backrests.

This mesh is used for two very important reasons.

The first is to allow airflow through the chair to your back to keep you from overheating or sweating and becoming uncomfortable.

The second is so that any rain or sleet can pass straight through, avoiding puddling and getting you waterlogged as you sit.

The sling nature of these chairs are very comfortable to sit in, spreading the weight so no hotspots develop when sitting for long periods.

Noise Suppression

As with any piece of hunting equipment noise suppression is crucial for use out in the field.

It is essential that all moving parts have been treated or built to eliminate squeaks, creaks, groans and clicks.

These sorts of issues are generally not dealt with in the creation of camp chairs and other chairs designed as general outdoor chairs.

Weight

Hunters need to carry a lot of gear, but they also need to carry as little as possible in terms of weight.

A great deal of consideration is given to every ounce added to the load that will be carried to the hunting grounds.

A good hunting chair is strong but doesn’t weigh a heck of a lot.

Portability

Similar to weight, carrying a pack, and any number of other items over long distances means it is crucial that every item folds down to a compact size. They can be carried with an integrated sling or a strap.

One of the absolute strong points of these types of hunting chairs is their portability. Because they are generally lightweight and they quickly fold, they are easy to carry to and from your hunting site.

Camo Finish

The whole idea of a low-profile hunting chair is to try to blend into the surrounding environment as much as possible so you go undetected.

The camo finish is part of the blending process and that’s why hunting chairs have the Mossy Oak or RealTree Xtra or other popular camo finishes.

If your chair matches the pattern of your hunting clothes you’re going to be able to camouflage with your environment much, much easier than if you’re sitting on a bright blue or red camp or beach chair.

Conclusion

The chance to stay low to the ground in a comfortable position is one that will help your body and your mind as you wait for your prey on, sometimes, long arduous days.

Fortunately, the quality of many of today’s low-profile hunting chairs makes it possible to find something that won’t break the budget, your back or your spirit.
