Most of our test models survived the daily sitting, napping, packing, unpacking, and general abuse that occurred over our multi-month testing period. People of all sizes sat in them to weigh in on comfort and they were packed and unpacked a painful number of times and carried to many destinations to assess portability. Their attendance at many a wild bonfire and daily exposure to the elements sufficiently tested their durability. Finally, we measured each chairs' ease of use by assembling them over. And over. And over. We also measured their dimensions, weight, ability to drain water after a rainstorm, ease of packing/carrying, and exactly how many beers those pocket coolers could handle (three).
