Alite Designs’ Monarch chair is w/o a doubt, the best backcountry chair ever made – light, stable on any grade, bomber. That’s the good news. Bad news is you’ll never own 1 because they went out of business. We have 2, including an early prototype from OR we call the cow chair.
We’re not saying the Omnia Stove is the best backcountry invention since the, um, sleeping bag. But we’re not saying it isn’t.
