Does it Work Wednesday: Pocket Chair

Posted: Updated:

Ever stood in a long line and wished you could take a seat? Just pull out the so-called "Amazing Pocket Chair."  It's ready to go in just a few simple steps, as long as you take note of the 250-lb. weight limit. I asked several people waiting in long lines at a recent restaurant grand opening to pull up a seat.

I had seven people try it. They ranged in height and weight. The taller people, about six feet and over, said this chair would really be uncomfortable. I'm short myself and even I find it to be a little uncomfortable, at least for a long period of time.

You squat in this chair, more than "sit." However, it's quite easy to put together and probably could fit inside a man's cargo pocket. I asked one woman if she'd carry it in her large purse, but she said no.

Several college students I interviewed disagreed, saying they'd compromise comfort for convenience offered by this chair. Meantime, the chair did get a little flimsy the more we sat on it. We're wondering just how long you can pull up a seat.

A few say they would not pay ten bucks for the pocket chair, while others thought it seemed like a fair price. I received a range of opinions on final letter grades, leaving me to sit and think about it myself!

I think we'll meet in the middle and give the Pocket Chair a 'C' on this Does it Work test.  You can buy this at Wal-mart in Cape Girardeau.
