After a long day exploring the great outdoors chances are you’ll want to find a big comfortable seat to sink into, and that's where the Vipor XVI from Darche comes in.
The Vipor is the perfect chair to use in the height of summer as it’s breathable and super comfy thanks to the foam padding and layer of mesh on the seat and back. With a waterproof Neoprene panel that’s also sewn at the front of the chair you won’t be sliding around while you’re trying to eat your dinner during a heatwave. The top of the chair also curves to form a little headrest so you can comfortably lean back for an afternoon nap.
With a detachable storage pocket that features two Velcro pockets, an insulated pocket zippered pouch– you can settle down for a rest without having to get back up. The other side has a drink holder that is retractable so it can be tucked under for easy storage. When it comes to good quality camping gear Darche really know their stuff, so you can trust that their products are well worth the investment if you're a serious outdoor enthusiast.
I've just tested the Vipor XVI with the display bottles and cans we have in store, and it looks like the stubby holder on this chair will hold a Crown Golden Ale Bottle, a Hahn Superdry bottle, and a regular soft drink can. Hope this helps Jason!
But are they in a stubby holder all ready, I was wonder if a beer in a stubbie holder would go into that holder.. thanks mate
Apologies Jason! I jumped the gun there and didn't read your question properly.
Have got a stubby holder and an empty beer bottle and tested it with this chair (again) and it does fit a beer bottle with a stubby holder on it.
Bloody ripper! I like the high set, firm seated fold up chairs, but there's not many options for a stubby holder in the arm.. this is the next best thing so looks like it's this one for the win! Thanks mate
Just requesting your opinion of comparison of Darche Viper XVI & Oztent King Koda. I am 6'2" & have had similar chairs to King Koda design - I have found after awhile you tend to sink in a shoulders & neck round off. The Viper does appear to have a good straight high back - both brands are good kit just wonder which one for me - hope you can help
I just had a quick sit on both of these for you Gene, and there's not a lot of difference.
The Darche Vipor XVI does have a longer flatter and slightly more upright back, and it does initially feel like it would stop you sliding forward as much as the King Kokoda Chair. It's a bit hard to know how they compare after a few hours but based on your concerns my gut feeling would be to recommend the Darche Vipor XVI for you.
