Clam Thermal - Alternate chair ideas?
« on: Oct 12, 2019, 10:17 AM »
Just put together my Clam Thermal 1 man. Before this I had a Frabill 2 man flip over. It had no affixed chair, just a folding chair.

The Clam chair seems too tall and makes it heavier. Takes up a lot of room for awkward storage of gear too. Has anyone here just remove it and used a comfy folding chair with any luck? Or was that no good?

I use a Sports style chair in my old Frabill Adventurer..it originally had a tri pod style seat ..horrible seat . I also have a directors style chair that I have yet to try in my flip over..but nice in the Eskimo hub.

I am waiting on my Millenium Marine/Blind chair which I've sat in before- they are unreal.

It's going in my Clam X200. It comes in a model with feet that is very popular with hunters. Its light and very well built.

Exact hut I had until this year. Horrible chair, but I loved having the open tub sled. I used a folding chair, or maybe you'd call them a lawn chair, or soccer chair. Thinking I'll do the same with this clam.

Which seat do you have? My clam scout one man has the mesh seat, seams nice, no field use yet though. I believe you can order them online, maybe find a shelter with one to sit on first?

Just wondering if you’ve ever spent a whole day in one like one on the ice. I like the looks of that seat and would go in the pro cabin easy.
