{Dover, NH} Oct. 7, 2020 — It’s no wonder NEMO’s Stargaze™ Recliner Luxury, what Outside Magazine says is “more like a mini hammock than a chair, swinging effortlessly and reclining easier than a La-Z-Boy”, sold out during the pandemic. While everyone was sheltering in place, reinventing their backyards, or social distancing at campgrounds, they were searching for the most comfortable, packable camp chair to spend time in—and the award-winning Stargaze™ Recliner Luxury was their answer. Outdoor specialty retailers and NEMO’s own website experienced unprecedented demand and sold out completely before summer was out. Now with ramped up production, Stargaze™ is back, just in time for the best season for circling around the campfire.

“In 2019, Stargaze™ was the #1 revenue driving chair in specialty,” said Mike Welch, NEMO’s VP of Global Sales. “While we were forecasting an increase in sales for 2020, no one could have predicted the surge we saw during the pandemic. First, our site sold out, and then our retail partners sold through a years’ worth of inventory in less than 2 months. Luckily, we have strong relationships with our manufacturing partners and we’ve been able to triple production to catch up with backorders and have supply for Fall adventures and the holidays.”


Since launching in 2017, NEMO’s Stargaze™ Recliner has won multiple outdoor and design awards while consistently being hailed by customers and media as the most comfortable camp chair, both noting its unique swinging and reclining attributes that take relaxation to the next level.

2020 Stargaze™ Recliner Luxury

The only swinging and reclining camp chair designed to be truly portable and work on any surface, no hanging required.

  • Suspended on an engineered frame, the chair swings smoothly and gently like a hammock.
  • Supportive headrest and hands-free ‘just-lean-back’ reclining with 2:1 pulley system for a relaxed view of the night sky or upright socializing around the campfire.
  • NEMO’s Super Lock™ stainless steel hardware ensures secure attachment of the sewn seat to the chair’s frame.
  • Aircraft grade aluminum poles and composite hubs are strong, yet lightweight.
  • A new geometry provides a lower center of gravity for extended fit range and increased stability.
  • Increased width of cross bars provides more room.
  • No-spill beverage holder and media pocket.
  • Offered in multiple colorways.
  • Intuitive setup in just 3 steps.
  • Breathable mono-filament mesh inspired by high-end office furniture.
  • Padded carrying case.
  • Protected by NEMO’s lifetime warranty.
