Recently, we got a peek at pretty much every piece of outdoor gear coming out later this year. Solar-adaptive ski goggles and laceless waterproof hiking boots top the list of the best items we saw at Outdoor Retailer Snow Show, but unfortunately, they won’t come out until the fall. Yeti also had something to show off in its new Trailhead Camp Chair, which just became available.

The Trailhead is Yeti’s second seat but follows many of the cues set by its predecessor, the Hondo Base Camp Chair. It’s wildly durable, using the same high-tension fabric that can support up to 500 pounds, and quite sturdy thanks to a locking frame and extra-wide feet. But while the Hondo offers these qualities in an XL folding format, the Trailhead scrunches up into a tight package that, with the included carry bag, you can throw over your shoulder.
