From Dennis Brune, Owner: I started ALPS Mountaineering, a small company located in rural east central Missouri, with the mission of "providing more gear for more people". We offer performance oriented packs, tents, sleeping bags, furniture & air pads. All of our products are Âconsumer designedÂ for comfortable enjoyable trips that have tough, durable construction for a lifetime of use, and while the products are great, the prices are even better. I have been working in the outdoor industry since 1978 in a variety of design, sales, and marketing positions. A lot of my prior outdoor experience came from running the Kelty brand, which also marketed packs, tents, and sleeping bags. In 1994, Brian, the oldest of our 3 children, was about to enter middle school, so I left Kelty because I wanted to have a more flexible schedule to allow me to be more involved in my familyÂs activities.
As our business has grown, so has our need for good, qualified staff members. We started filling those needs in 2003 when Brian graduated from college with his degree in marketing. While my intention never was to Âonly hire friends and familyÂ, I continued the trend by next hiring my wife, LaRayne. When Adam, our second son, graduated in May of 2006, also with a degree in marketing, we also hired him. In the summer of 2006 we needed even more sales and marketing help, so we next hired our daughter-in-law, Sarah Beth. Our youngest child, Sarah Kristin, graduated from Mizzou in May of 2009 with her degree in communication, and we also said to her, Âcome on board!Â As IÂve happily and very proudly told several people, weÂve Âredefined the family businessÂ. Of course we have plenty of Ânon-BruneÂ employees Â Debbie, Karen, Phil, Sean, Laurie, Zach, Tracy, Jeff, Doug, Spencer Â and we consider them to be part of our extended Âbusiness familyÂ. While we believe in making exceptional products, we also think itÂs equally important to have outstanding employees Â and I can say that weÂre doing a great job of both.
Regarding our products, the challenge we have is to convince you that we can deliver products that offer great designs, are loaded with plenty of features, are made with excellent quality Â AND are also affordable. In our current economic situation, itÂs extra important to evaluate all of our purchases. We think if you do your ÂhomeworkÂ and fairly compare our products to those of our competitors, youÂll see we can offer you the best true value.
Have not used them very much yet,but so far they seem to be great chairs & well worth the money..
Bought it for my XL Hubby and he loves this chair. Believe me, we've tried others and have been disappointed. This chair does not disappoint.
Great simply Great.
Great product, was everything I have always wanted in an out door chair.
I am a large person at 385 lbs. and find this chair to be even stronger made than I hoped for. I recommend this chair for anyone my size or even larger.
This is the perfect chair for the bigger person. It's very comfortable and stores nicely.
This is a large ultra heavy duty folder designed the comfortably hold 800 lb people. It is very roomy, well constructed and comfortable. I bought one last year at $100.00 and it was stolen. These are discontinued only because the 1000 lb model is larger and more popular. Get these at this price while you can they are well worth twice as much
Great chair...big, sturdy feel, and totally comfortable. Opens up and collapses back into folded posture to stow in provided storage sack very easily. Fabric is excellent quality, very tough seams everywhere. The chair is strong far beyond any other I've ever seen. I have, without any hesitation, had my girlfriend sit in my lap in the chair, and there were no worries of it failing. I guess the only down side is that it is a bit bulky, and it isn't feather weight. They'd have to be magicians to get this sturdy and roomy of a chair to be any lighter weight and more compact in design. For what it is, its perfect.
I am a large woman and this is comfortable!!! My tall friends used it and said it was like sitting in her living room. I want to get the foot stool for it. I take it to the beach and parks-got it for a camping trip and if it gets muddy, just wash it off-dries rapidly in the sun!! I would definitely buy another one-good price for a good chair!
It's nice to have a portable chair that is sturdy and comfortable for adults who need extra support.
"King Kong" has become my new best traveling friend. Being a real big guy has made it a challenge to find comfortable camping seating and this sturdy, strong, stable chair fits the bill. ALPS has done a great job and I'll be looking at other products they make!
