Wait until season end closeout at Walmart and buy a folding chair for $10. Does the Yeti version last 30x as long as the cheap one?

Maybe its extra super comfortable like an overpriced computer chair. Would be fun to sit in just for kicks if you happened to see one on display at a camping store like Bass Pro.

The chair resembles the Herman Miller office chairs which are also stupidly expensive and tear the back of one's pants.

The ideal that (some) people will buy a produce BECAUSE it costs more is a well-established marketing principle. It's called "premium pricing". Rolex watches are a good example. It works well with womens's cosmetics, and look at what some women will pay for shoes and purses.

Before I get hate mail from the ladies, let me hasten to say that men go for it too.

Designed to appeal to the same foolish souls that buy Hermes handbags and Christian Louboutin shoes.

A friend sent this link for a ridiculously over priced folding camp chair from the same folks that brought you over priced coolers YETI

$300 folding camp chair

Maybe worth this price if the frame were carbon fiber and the mesh graphene?


Well ... maybe that Yeti is, and maybe it isn't, ever so slightly better than these ... of which we always bring along His and Hers versions of in our RV [emoticon] :

I have tried those zero gravity chairs and don't care for them at all. I want to move the back separately from the foot rest, but on those, you move the back and the footrest moves too. Too much like a regular recliner with no foot rest controls. Not for me. BTDT, gave the chairs away.

If you price stuff right, you'll draw the "You get what you pay for" crowd.

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.
