Alps Turkey Chair vs. Cabela's Lounger
« on: January 02, 2012, 06:17:53 PM »
One of my buddies introduced me to the Alps Turkey Chair.  Getting old enough that I am interested in a little more comfort in the turkey woods.  I have also recently found the Cabela's Turkey Lounger Chair.  Just wondering if any of you have used either chair and what you think of them.  Not sure about hauling them around while running and gunning.

Thanks in advance

They are both excellent. What I like about the Alps are the legs run all the way across, unlike the lounger which has independent feet. Those feet will sink into the soft ground easier.

What I think has them both beat is this one:




It is completely adustable for leg and back angle, and can allow for the angle of the ground. I weigh 310 lbs and this one has stood up to three years of heavy hunting and abuse. They are called the San Angelo Everest Recliner, and are available at several sporting goods stores.

I have sat in both.  I have a Gobbler Lounger.  I find it more comfortable.
225 lb weight rating FYI, in case you're a big ol' boy. :toothy12:
Love to hunt the King of Spring!

I have only used the Gobbler Lounger.  I love it.  I would give up my left, ummm, big toe if I had to choose between losing it or my lounger.

I have the Cabela's Turkey Lounger. Very comfortable seat and YES it's a bit bulky. My problem is that it's made in China. I feel we need to get back to Made In The USA and start pushing these companies to start getting things made here in the United States and put people back to work.

The gobble Lounger and our Lounge sack is an unbeatable pair!

I suggested to a friends wife that she get him a gobbler lounger for Christmas, Cabelas was out of stock so she called Cabelas and was told that the mfg has stopped making the camo version and was not available. IDK if she mis understood or what the deal is but she ended up getting him and Alps. It looks like the alps has more features like a couple pockets not shown in the above pic that are under the front of the chair, (like between your knees), and a mesh pocket on the top back of the chair. I got one for Christmas also and can find nothing about it that I would change.

I see the NWTF is pimping its own version of the gobbler lounger...

Wonder if they got licensing permission from Cabelas for that chair

Here's the chat I just had with a rep at Cabela's.

 Joseph: Hi, my name is Joseph. How may I help you?

 Raymond Leonard: I am looking to get a couple of more gobbler loungers, but they are not listed on the website any more.  Did you stop making/carrying them?
 
Joseph: Do you have an item number or an order number that the item is on?

 Raymond Leonard: I do not.  I have 2 and they are great.  Wanted to get a couple of more b/c my daughter is starting to hunt and now I need 3 chairs.  Always nice to have a back up too.
 
Raymond Leonard: IK-517165

 Joseph: We apologize, but the item has been sold out for the season with no tentative arrival date as to when the item will be back in stock.  Would you like me to transfer you to a product associate to see if we can locate a comparable item?
 
Raymond Leonard: No, just would like to know when they will be back in stock.  The earliest season opens 1st week of March I believe, so hopefully they will be ready in the next month.
 
Joseph: We apologize, but when an item is sold out for the season, we do not have any information as to when the item will come back in stock.
 
Raymond Leonard: Thanks for your time

So, I don't know what will happen.  I should have bought 2 more when they were $13

I bought 4 0f them last year when they were on sale and gave one to a buddy. I might just have to ask for it back  :-\  ;D
