    The Winter Recliner II



    My primary objective with the Winter Recliner project was to develop gear that would make sitting for long periods more comfortable. In addition, I needed to reduce my pack size and weight to accommodate the additional camera equipment I carry on a regular bases. The new gear had to be versatile and replace existing items in my kit. The original Winter Recliner (WR) effectively served as both, a chair and 3s UnderQuilt but the WR-II goes a step further with more versatility and it folds out to a full length 11’ hammock to complete what I consider, an “All-In-One” solution.





    The attached Docs/Instructions are based on the WR-II prototype, I’ve done my best to explain and illustrate the steps but doc writing is not my forte, a lot of the DIY basics are implied. As a fellow DIY’r, I encourage you customize and adapt the design to suite your size and gear requirements. The type/weight of fabric and type/quality of insulation you use is a preference and entirely up to you. In short, clone or create… your call.

    Please bear with me on the instructions for the stand, they are forthcoming! I’m currently accessorizing it with a Foot Rest.

    Wow.

    That's just off the hook.

    Fine, inspiring work.

    Hey [0]TTeR

    That is a great piece of gear you have come up with there. It looks well made and thought out. I like the multi-use part of it too.

    Thanks for sharing that with us.
    Take care,
    Bluefin

    I thought it would be hard to improve on the first Winter Recliner, but you've managed! Impressive piece of gear. And thanks for sharing so much detail on the design and construction. The DIY list grows again!

    Thanks all, I had a lot of fun with this project and the chair is very comfortable on the stand, I need to get it out on the trail for a real test.

    As mentioned, I tried to cover the bases, let me know if you have questions or need more info on stuff I didnt cover

    My house is divided between the two versions! My kids still love the original, my wife and I battle over hang time in the new one, I’m making another one this week.

    I'm sharing the design because I hope someone takes the design and concept to the next level, I like collaboration and brainstorming!
