We’re always on the lookout for better camp furniture. This campaign chair is named in honor of the headquarters of the Indian Army Corps of Engineers at Roorkhee, India and a mainstay of the Army and Navy Stores Catalogs.
The Roorkhee chair was among the most popular models of campaign chairs used by British Officers from approximately 1898 to the start of WW II. They needed a chair that was lightweight, could be folded up, carried around easily and loaded onto a packhorse. It also needed to be comfortable and able to adapt to use on uneven terrain without breaking.
This chair weighs 11 pounds and is 34” tall and 21” wide and collapses down flat for easy transport.
