Helinox chair1xl in forest Green, butt's right up against yr bedchair,the chair itself is maga comfy ,I've fallen into a semi doze on it many times,it's a chair ,not really meant for anything other than sitting on ,support is up to my shoulders, but then many carp chairs also don't have head support

Where Helinox wins ,is comfort,portability ,mega lightness, and convenience...not much to dislike if you want a nice upright view...

Helinox Chair one xl...I was just looking after you recommended ,this can't go on top of a bed can it, do you mean you just put in front of the bed?
Looking again this won't support your head, the back is too low.

I still use an Avid RT ,lightweight bedchair,with cam wheels,I have used it as a bed/chair,to be honest it's not comfy as the end bar ,will dig in your back..

I tried a Tacklebox bedchair buddy thingy...nope
Then a Chub,bedchair buddy...nope,both sag as they don't go full width of frame..

Then I sat on a multimat foam sit mat,but now I met farmer Giles,so then I discovered Helinox Chair one xl,this is mega comfy,and butt's right up against the bedchair frame...use either in bivvy or outside...good kit

I've got the Nash one that was on offer everywhere for £19.99 that goes full width of the bed and adjustable length, has a couple of straps used to adjust the back angle.. I found it quite comfy the couple of times I've used it so far.

Yes my scope black ops has this function not that ive ever used it - however ties in with the whole scope ethos

That said I much prefer a seperate bed and chair and although the bed buddys work are a better option than sitting on your bed I much prefer getting out the bivvy and sitting on a proper chair

SADLY it seems the one I would recommend seems to be discontinued thats the Daiwa Mission Bedchair or the same one TFG TF Gear Chillout Bed Mate

the most IMPORTANT POINT is it MUST span the complete width of the bed as this then prevents you tipping back and thats the cause of bedchair back ache when sitting just on the bed
I see that Angling direct do one that looks in the pictures to be wide enough to span the bed ?
sadly the back is not adjustable though

I got a fold flat seat from my main tesco store. Cost 10 quid. It's made out of a heavy duty material and has 2 straps connecting the seat bit to the back rest. I just leave it folded flat in bedchair when not in use. Perfect for sitting sideways on bedchair.

Are we are being conditioned to take a separate chair to sit on during the day now?

has anyone ever pulled a Bed chair out of their bivvy to use it as a chair in the sunshine ? what a nightmare that would be ?

and personally I find in winter a decent bed chair buddy a thousand times more comfortable than the old beds that tilted
and in warmer weather a nice reclining chair to sit in the sunshine and doze off

Very much so. I much preferred the positionable rear on the bed, hated sliding down mind on a slippy peachskin bag...lol, but it would give me a bad back after a while. A weeks session in the rain ain't much fun which is why I always took a euro extension so I could fit a separate chair in comfortably. I've never owned a bedchair buddy as in my mind when they first appeared bivvies were too sloped at the back for them to be of use when you put your bed tight to the back, I guess with modern designs of squarer back its a lot better.

I wonder why no company has brought out extra long legs as a option for the rear, would just be easier to keep the adjustable wheel and keep it of flat design tho.

I think you could easily make a clamp on bracket to fix the back section upwards, 2 screw in multi clamps and a adjustable bankside spring to mind.
