best ground blind chairs

Being comfortable whilst hiding in your hunting blind is important. We’ve all suffered from that aching back, stiff neck and numb buttocks from the cold hard ground.

It’s likely your considered getting a chair for sitting in your blind but don‚Äôt want the cumbersome weight and size of a regular chair. Well, today we are going to review 5 of the very best ground blind chairs so you can get a feel for what’s available on the market and how they stack up.

Before we dive into our Top 5 Ground Blind Chairs lets take a look at some of the key elements you need to consider before buying.

Weight

This is one of the biggies. We’re already carrying a great deal of weight with our hunting gear. From traps to rifles, knives to warm gear and everything in between. Adding a chair doesn’t have to mean adding a lot of weight to your hunting backpack.

So we need to pay attention to how much the chair itself weighs, and don’t worry, I’ve got some great lightweight, yet durable options for you today. I’ve even stolen some ideas from the Ultralight Backpacking community ūüôā

Height

You don’t want to be sat just off the ground, as getting into and out of your chair when you need to, such as your game has just come into shooting distance, needs to be a smooth and easy as possible.

So a balance between too high and too-low must be found. If you are tall, i.e over 6ft 2″ I would suggest looking for a slightly taller chair as it can be difficult with long legs in some of the lower chairs on this list.

Comfort

Above all else comes comfort. We’re here to enjoy ourselves after all and sitting behind a popup blind can be uncomfortable at best if we let it. So think about where you are going to be setting up your spot, what the terrain is like and if the chair you like the best is suitable.

Another thing whilst we’re on the subject of comfort¬†is those added extras you can get with some of the regular ‘camping’ style chairs. Specifically, I am talking about a headrest and cup holders. Whilst they are great to have when on a campsite with the family, those are not necessary for a comfortable¬†day and night in a hunting blind.

If those are important to you then please go ahead and prioritize those features. However, be warned, you will pay for it when it comes to the weight of the product.

Let’s jump into the top 5 ground blind chairs shall we?

Primos Double Bull Tri Stool

First up is one of the more simple designs when it comes to blind chairs. With a flared webbing style back support that allows for freedom of movement and a simple design means there’s not much can go wrong with this chair.

Features and Specifications

  • Weight: 6.5 lbs
  • Dimensions:¬†2ft (legs do not fold)
  • Material: Chair –¬†600d polyester, Poles –¬†Steel

Our Thoughts

Whilst thePrimos Double Bull is a robust chair it does have one downside and that is its packability. The legs do not fold any smaller than you see in the image above. Therefore the stool is always 2ft long.

With that being said, this is on of the most sturdy chairs we’ve ever used and that shows with its popularity amongst others users. The triangle style seat is, at first, confusing for most as it’s not often you get this deign on a hunting chair, it is often reserved for the small stools, one of which I will review a little later.

However, it quickly becomes evident that a lot of thought has been put into making the Double Bull one of the more comfortable blind chairs on the market today.

ALPS OutdoorZ Stealth Hunter Blind Chair

Now we’re getting to a whole new level of comfort and flexibility with the ALPS Outdoor Stealth Hunter. The beauty offers a range of comfort features that you simply cannot get from the regular triangle stool.

Features and Specifications

  • Weight: 15lb
  • Dimensions:18″x 14″x 37″
  • Material: Chair – Polyester ‘TechMesh’, Poles – Powder Coated Steel

Our Thoughts

With steel legs that can be extended to adjust for any slight variance in ground height and a padded back support to keep you in perfect position for acting quickly, the Stealth Hunter is one of our favourites.

Whilst it’s the heaviest of the 5 chairs reviewed here today at 15.4lbs, for that weight you do get more comfort and luxury. The tripod leg design means you have a¬†360-degree rotating blind chair which enables you to swivel in all directions to take care of business.

The seat os also height adjustable from 17.5 inches Р23 inches, making this chair one of the best for comfort and flexibility.

ALPS OutdoorZ Tri-Leg Stool-Realtree Xtra HD

We now go to the other end of the scale with another entry from ALPZ OutdoorZ. This Tri-Leg Stool in Realtree camo is not only super lightweight but also sturdy to boot.

Features and Specifications

  • Weight: 2lb
  • Dimensions: 14″x 14″x 16″
  • Material: Chair – Polyester, Poles – Powder Coated Steel

Our Thoughts

With weight being a concern for some hunters, a stool is a perfect compromise between comfort and weight. If you have to carry your gear any kind of distance then this could be the best option for you. It is the cheapest option on our list but don’t let that price fool you.

You are getting a quality piece of gear that capable of supporting up to 250 lbs. However, I would advise that if you are planning on sitting all day to bag your prize, you may consider opting for one with a back support as using a stool is likely to end your day early with a bad back.

The best part of this ground stool is the mesh pocket for storing valuable and the carry sack with a strap that comes with it.

Millennium Treestands G100 Blind Chair

The G100 is for serious hunters who prioritize comfort above all else. This is by far the pick of the bunch when it comes down to features and those added extras you love to have when spending the day/night in a hide.

Features and Specifications

  • Weight: 7lb
  • Dimensions:¬†13″ x 20″ x 17″
  • Material: Powder Coated Aluminum

Our Thoughts

This shooting chair from Millenium Outdoors really does tick all the boxes. it’s not too heavy at around 7lbs, it provides comfort on uneven ground with 4 adjustable feet to get your seat at just the right angle.

What’s more is it has a height adjustable seat from 13″ to 18″ and a 360-degree swivel chair giving you access to¬†all sides of your hunting blind.

This really is a bombproof ground blind chair and a lot of effort has gone into making it one of the best in its category.

Big Agnes – Helinox – Chair One

The Helinox is on of the chairs I mentioned earlier. I stole the idea from the ultralight backpacking community when I myself was looking at getting the best ground blind chair that suited my style of hunting.

The Big Agnes Helinox was the first to market with this style of low-riding chair and a few others have followed and failed to match it for its superior build quality and strength as the Chair One is strong enough to support up to 320lb/ 145kg of weight.

 

Features and Specifications

  • Weight:¬†1.9lb. (850g)
  • Dimensions:¬†14″ x 4″ x 5″
  • Material: Chair –¬†600d polyester, Poles – Anodized Aluminum

Our Thoughts

I did end up buying one of these and I must say it’s absolutely perfect for me, at 5ft 11″ it’s great to get in/out of at a moments notice and at just 1.9lb. (850g) it really is a piece of lightweight hunting luxury.

This little chair packs down to around¬†14″ x 4″ x 5″ which makes it great for sliding into your pack or strapping to the outside since the carry bag comes complete with molle webbing loops for ease of integration to almost any hunting pack.
