Hondo Owner's Manual

The Hondo® Base Camp Chair is here for a little change of pace. It's the chair that accompanies a hearty round of breakfast burritos and awaits your whiskey-readied return, book-ending every adventure with hardcore comfort. Although it's primary use is intended to be the opposite of extreme, Hondo is the adrenaline-junkie's kindred spirit. We looked to the wilderness-tested gear - from climbing harness fabric that rock climbers have trusted with their lives, to reinforced aluminum alloy used in downhill mountain bikes - to create a chair so durable it's the last you'll ever need, and so comfortable, it'll be the last chair you'll ever want. This is your front row seat to the wild. Welcome to Base Camp.

YETI Hondo Features

  • EasyBreathe™ Mesh with FlexGrid™ Technology: The same fabric used in mountain climbing harnesses. UV-resistant and made to hold maximum weight without losing elasticity. It also eliminates pressure points, so you can sit comfortably for the duration of whitetail season.
  • DoubleBarrel™ Frame: Reinforced with two layers of age-hardened aluminum alloy, the same metal used in hardcore mountain bikes.
  • GridGuard™ Mold: Seamless over-mold locks in a two-way tensioned fabric, ensuring edge-to-edge comfort and seams that don’t break or tear.
  • DieHard™ Joint Construction: Solid, cast joints inspired by the ones used on your truck’s door hinges.
  • Waterfall Front Edge: The uniquely shaped seat flows downward to eliminate pressure points. Being at the edge of your seat has never been more comfortable.
  • Hondo™ Cup Holder: Ambidextrous and stays upright even when the chair is folded. Included with your Hondo.

Cleaning Your Hondo

Cleaning the chair is simple. For general cleaning (dust, dirt, etc.) simply hosing it off with water will suffice. For targeted dirt and debris on the frame or fabric, scrub the frame/fabric with a simple mixture of mild soap and water, and a soft bristle brush.
