Excerpts from the OutdoorGearLab Review:


“The Crazy Creek Hex 2.0 PowerLounger was the runaway winner in versatility, working well in just about any environment or activity. Unfold it and stretch it out to accommodate three people (when all your friends forget their chairs). Or use it as a sleeping pad for a quick nap or even as a sleeping pad replacement in the backcountry.” The Crazy Creek Original “…is considered the second most versatile chair. After all these years, it’s still got it. It is great on the river, at the beach, at a concert, or at camp.”

Ease of Setup

“The Crazy Creek chairs are all by far the easiest to set up. Just unroll them and they are good to go. The side adjusters are very easy to use. And you can go from a reclining position to flattening the pad for a nap in a matter of seconds.”

The Bottom Line

“The Crazy Creek Hex 2.0 PowerLounger is our favorite camp chair and wins our Editors’ Choice award. It weighs about as much as the Original Crazy Creek and is just as compactable, but is way more comfortable and versatile. The wider and taller back makes a huge difference in comfort. And the extra length means this doubles as a sleeping pad or it can be shared with more people.

“The Crazy Creek Original Chair is still one of our favorites and wins our Best Buy award. It is comfortable, extremely durable, easy to set up, and offers a good value.”
