Portable chairs come in all shapes and sizes. Manufacturers always developing new gimmicks to keep their products compact, easy to transport, and durable. A cool one we stumbled upon recently is the Tripster from Trippy Outdoor. The company embraces a groovy “flower power” vibe, but the craftsmanship and functionality that goes into its products are outstanding.

The Tripster is a great piece of equipment to have for various outdoor activities. Its stylish and lightweight construction makes it easy to haul around. Living up to the brand name, they’re building this transforming seat out of wood and metal. At only 8 lbs., it’s lightweight but robust enough to support up to 1,000 lbs.

According to Trippy Outdoor, the inspiration behind its design comes from the 8th century. As you can see, the classic silhouette remains timeless and looks rad with some modern embellishments. The two-part system uses sturdy seven-layer maple with an aluminum bracket.

The main section of the Tripster sports an ergonomic curvature with vertical and horizontal cutouts. Another two cutouts close to the metal assembly serve has carry handles. The seat features four strong magnets to hold it securely in place for storage or transport. Meanwhile, the latter slides into a slot which steadily braces the leg against the aluminum bracket at the back.

Instead of nails, Trippy Outdoor opts for hex bolts to hold the pieces together. You can get it in eight colors and it ships out to you in a cardboard box with awesome artwork. Aside from the Tripster chair and documentation, the packaging also holds some freebies. You have stickers, a poster, and a ceramic mug. Finally, lacquer on the wooden parts means you can use it in any condition.
