As the photo below shows I took to securing the legs with a rod band for transport. Unlike the Nomad the seat and back covers are not connected, so you can't stuff jackets and fleeces in it to carry them. You can, but they tend to fall out before you get to your swim. The new Adjusta Level chair has addressed these faults. It has been made a couple of pounds heavier in the process, although under my arm the difference feels negligible.
What follows is not a review, more a comparison of old and new. I'll report back at a later date as to how the chair performs in real world situations.

|New leg design|
|Rear leg designs compared - note bolts in place of rivets making legs less 'floppy'|
