You know when you are at the end of a long day at work. All you want in the world is to sit back in your favorite chair, put on the game and just…unwind. The Nash Indulgence Hi-Back chair is that for the serious carp or catfisherman.
My Nash Hi-Back is not sitting with my fishing gear in the garage, it is set up in front of the TV in my living room, with me in it, while I write this review.
So, at $195 (£119) is the Nash Indulgence Hi-Back chair worth the price tag, I think so. This chair will not put more fish on the bank but it will put you on the bank more often and longer. Its, comfortable. Really comfortable. Especially if you are big boy like me.
That is why the Nash Indulgence Hi-Back chair got my attention. I am 6’ 4”, (193 cm) and with the legs fully extended, my feet barely brush the ground when I sit in this chair. I love it, I rarely get to sit in a chair that fits me –let alone while fishing. If you are tall, getting in and out of this chair is like using indoor plumbing for the first time. You can never go back.
The reason why I bought the Indulgence Hi-Back instead of the other indulgence chairs is so that the back would be tall enough to rest my head on the head rest. With the back straight up, my head rests on the very top of the headrest, so its works but its close. Reclined, the head rest fits me perfectly.
I was pleased to see that the seat was wide enough for me. I am 230 pounds and my cars’ “ergonomic” bucket seats only fit a cheek-and-a-half, so I was pleased to see that my fishing chair has enough room to contain me, but not so wide that the arm rests are distant.
Nash’s Indulgence Hi-Back chair is chunky at 16 lb (7.25 kg), but it is pretty sturdy. At 230 lbs (104.3 kg), I can plop down into the chair without being gentle. But with the feet fully extended there is a little play in the legs when I sit down but it doesn’t seem to be a problem.
Pivoting mud feet with the adjustable legs are a necessary feature for fishing on uneven ground and it’s a feature you won’t find on most camping chairs which are designed for flat surfaces. The Triggalock system, allows you to adjust the feet with one hand very quickly.
Some of the down sides to this chair is its weight. The Nash Indulgence Hi-Back chair is a bit heavy. Additionally, there is no shoulder strap to let carry the chair when your hands are full, but Nash sells a chair bag that comes with a strap.
The Triggalock system is handy, but one of the four legs on mine seems to be a bit sticky and about half of the time it takes two hands to get the foot to drop down. Occasionally, the Triggalock system will make a scratching metal on metal sound and once I saw metal shavings come out. It hasn’t been a big deal so far but its kind of annoying when it sticks and it makes me worried about the life expectancy of that leg, but so-far-so-good.
One potential design flaw in the Nash Indulgence Hi-Back chair is the rear leg locking pin. There is a silver pin that locks the rear legs so they won’t fold up and drop you backwards on your butt. That pin sticks and doesn’t always automatically insert into the hold when you set up the chair. You have to check the pin every time you put the chair together or the rear legs will fold up on you.
In summary, the Nash Indulgence Hi-Back chair is a good buy if you are a big guy who wants the ultimate in comfort when they are on the bank.
