If you do end up giving up on the zero gravity chairs the I would recommend the Strongback.

Strongback Chairs — The most comfortable folding chair

If I give up on the zero gravity, I may just sit on a stump

I will def. keep this chair in mind...all the plastic joins worry me a bit, but I am 150 lbs and wife is light as well so I suspect it would be ok...but if I need not worry about lounging, then this could be a nice comfortable ergonomic alternative and keep my back happy as it is quite tempermental with developing tension with any slouching.

I noticed even with the target zero gravity that I still wanted just a couple inches of extra lower back support and that did the trick and was quite comfortable...I hope this back stuff does not evolve over the years to more than this...it is only occassionally annoying for me and I have made things much better by making sure I support my back while watching TV at home and doing better with posture at work...those bag chairs while camping though are just what my back cannot handle.

I get the new chairs from backcountry friday afternoon.

One of my patients told me the other day about an inflatable soft bladder thingie that can strap onto chairs for support...going to look one of those up as the pillows are often too thick

I'm a serious fan of millet-filled and buckwheat hull-filled pillows and back supports. Bucky makes several nice back pillows. Here is the one that I purchased:

Beau Microsuede Neck & Back Pillow | Back Pillows | Neck Pillows | Travel Essentials | Bucky.com

Note that you can adjust the amount of support that the pillow provides by adding or removing some of the millet-fill inside.

I don't think you will find a portable chair that stores as compact as a Kermit and is as comfortable. You get really good at putting them together quickly after doing it a few times. I can assemble/disassemble one in a couple of minutes. The leg extensions store in a separate canvas bag. The extensions are very sturdy and allow you to sit close to the ground when not used or sit higher up when installed. If you are sitting on an incline, you can put only the front ones on and sit level. They are expensive but will last a lifetime. Owning Kermits is sorta like being in a cult which reminds me of another cult like following ie., owning a certain aluminum travel trailer we are all part of. Expensive yes but owning the best is sometimes worth it.

Zip Dew has a website.
I don't know where to buy them in person.
Amazon?
We use Amazon often because we are geographically shopping challenged- i. e.- we live in a Podunk town with only a Walmart and 100 miles from anything else. Online is often the way to go for us .

I weight 225 and have not managed to break the Strongbacks! I do hope you find a good ZG chair however, since I would like to get one as well.

Sitting here in an old cheap sling chair thinking, "It's mostly comfortable, but the canvas material sure is rough on my elbows. Maybe I just have sensitive skin."

This is a discussion I have looked forward to reading everyday! I showed my sweetie the Kermit chair website and he said, "Yes...those are the one's for us!" So,he ordered chairs (in red to match our awnings), extensions, table, and of course the wine glasses! This is our birthday present to each other. Can hardly wait for them to arrive.
Victoria

P.S. I will keep on reading this thread as is downright FUN to follow

That Futura Clipper looks nice Pharmgeek, in mesh, right? They make a good product.

I will tell you that for those looking for a comfort chair, that Eureka Highback Curvy is one to check out too. Not a recliner but it is comfortable and big (tall) with nice head and neck support. Weighs 12 lbs, holds 300 lbs. They make a lounger too but I am not familiar with it but it has the same weight limits. The arms are low and padded. The back extends about 4" above my head when sitting.

Hey, just looked at those strongback chairs WOW. look nice. The Eureka does not have the curve but it does have a tall X brace in the back that matches the lumbar area so that the sagging is minimal.
