Beat the Heat with ecto® Chair: Aaron Carmack’s Innovative Outdoor Cooling Solution

Portable, instant, adjustable outdoor cooling

As a seasoned traveler and someone who's lived a good part of my life on the edge, I've learned that the smallest luxuries can mean the difference between a great day out and one that leaves you gasping for the comforts of home. This one's for those outdoor aficionados who won't let the relentless summer sun rob them of their adventures.

Imagine if you will, the sun beats down on your back, and there's not a hint of a breeze to relieve the sweltering heat. But instead of seeking solace in the shade or under the artificial chill of an air conditioner, you sit in the open air, comforted by a cool touch seeping into your body. You're not imagining, it's the real deal.

Meet the ecto® Chair and ecto® TOPR, your new best buddies this summer. These devices plunge your seating experience into a chilly 45° F, turning an unbearable day under the sun into a pleasing, refreshing adventure.

What I find to be its remarkable essence is how seamlessly it merges technology with raw, elemental nature. The ecto® Chair, solidly built with a steel-alloy frame, supports up to 275 lb., while the ecto® TOPR, an easily portable cooling pad, holds up to 300 lb. Their magic lies in the Arctica cooling technology, a cunning use of micro-cooling lines, snaking through the structure, chilling your seat within seconds.

What makes it even more appealing is the freedom to adapt the level of cooling to your personal preference, 65° F, 55° F, or the coolest 45° F. It's like having a personal air conditioner in the wild, without ruining the atmosphere or the environment.

For those of you who still love your favorite camping chair, the ecto® TOPR can fit into any of them, infusing it with the cooling technology. Your cherished seat remains, now with a refreshing twist. And if you're one for accessories, moveable cupholders and an attachable sun canopy are there to add to your comfort.

Operating the ecto® devices is like a walk in the park. All it takes is dipping the trunk hose into at least 1 inch of cold water and ice in your cooler – no need for a dedicated ecto® cooler. They've made it compatible with most cooler brands and sizes. Now that's what I call being considerate.

The ecto® devices run on most USB (Type A) power banks under 30,000 mAh, but if you need an additional power source, they provide an optional 5,000 mAh battery. What's better, the battery can power your ecto® Chair or TOPR for over 9 hours on the highest setting. That's almost an entire day of adventure without compromising comfort.

Taking a step back and looking at it from the lens of its creator, Aaron Carmack, it's clear that ecto® is much more than just an outdoor amenity. It was born from the desire to help his mother experience the joy of summer despite her health condition. This humble backstory echoes in every innovative feature of ecto®, making it more than just a product, but rather a testament to human resilience and ingenuity.

So, to all you summer enthusiasts out there, this might just be the perfect gear you've been waiting for. Don't let the sun beat you down, chill in the heat with ecto® and reclaim the glory of summer. After all, the world is a beautiful place, and every corner of it is worth exploring – comfortably.


  1. Arctica Cooling Technology: The unique cooling system, which cools your seat to as low as 45°F, ensures that you can enjoy the outdoors even during the hot summer months.
  2. Compatibility and Versatility: Both the ecto TOPR and the ecto Chair can work with any standard chair or seat. The TOPR is also adaptable for laying out at the beach, camping, and even car seats. This level of flexibility allows you to enjoy cooling comfort no matter where you are.
  3. Battery Not Included: This might sound like a drawback, but it gives you the flexibility to use your own power bank, as long as it's a USB Type A under 30,000 mAh. You can also add an optional 5000 mAh battery to your order at checkout if you need one.
  4. Size Options: The ecto TOPR comes in Standard (44in x 16in) and Long (50in x 16in) sizes. The Long variant is suitable for high back chairs and car seats, and can even be used on beds, sleeping bags, or on the ground for full body cooling.
  5. Discounts and Bundles: All the items are currently on sale with up to 29% off. The ecto Chair All-In Bundle, which includes the chair, cup holder, shade canopy, carrying bag, battery, and 1-year warranty, provides excellent value for money.
  6. 1 Year Limited Warranty: This warranty can give you peace of mind and assure you of the product's quality and durability.


  1. Price: Even with the discounts, the ecto products are somewhat expensive. The original price for the ecto Chair All-In Bundle is $340 USD, and the discounted price is still $255 USD.
  2. Battery Purchase Optional: The fact that a battery is not included in the base price might surprise some customers. Although you have the freedom to use your own power bank, the optional 5000 mAh battery will add to the total cost.
  3. Shipping Cost: Shipping will be charged and invoiced when your order is ready to ship. This means that the total cost could be higher than what you see at checkout.
  4. Limited Availability: The ecto Chair and the ecto Chair All-In Bundle are only available in limited quantities. You might have to act fast to get one.
  5. Long Estimated Shipping Time: The estimated shipping time is February 2024, which is quite a long wait, especially if you're looking to use these products for this summer.
  6. Shipping Limitation: Currently, the products only ship to the United States. This limits the accessibility of these innovative products to customers living elsewhere.
