oh you will love it....and I am jealous of that deal!!

I just need to figure out a cup holder for it...they sale one I think...stocking stuff I will hope santa brings me.

So far mine has held up nice...no problems...the "clips" for the future show no problems so far...I would watch the hinge areas for any rust...Ive pre-emptively treated those areas with a bit of anti-corrosive (corrosion x) and will do so after trips while they sit in my garage.

This is our 2nd one. The first one has stood up great. No rust. My one complaint was it took to long to dry when it got wet. This should not be the case with the new one.

I can attest this - my mesh fabric on mine when wet can just be knocked right off and a microfiber towel run over it dried it up nice - if in the sun drying would be very very fast

That soft cushion fabric would be another story I assume

I just added the REI pico chairs - a set as Xmas gift - we will see - I'm still mulling leisurely

I also sat in a friends small egg shaped folding chair - not butterfly type but similar - I was impressed and very light weight

you know, I looked at a couple of those at CW...are you talking about the ones with the little hydrolic doo dad? if not, how do they fold up with that big rocking surface?

Elite Folding Rocker (Prime Line)

http://www.amazon.com/Products-13-65...rocking+chairs

I found this in one of those giant RV catalogs and ordered it thru local dealer at about same price. I ought to order a few more (and will when my son is finally cut loose from USMC.)

I'm 6'2" @ 200# Very long legs & arms (which causes me to leverage most chairs fairly hard).. This chair has met all expectations. I can quite easily forget where I am when reading (meaning hours).

It "collapses" into a good shape/size. Releases at seat juncture and rear legs slide.

Unlike the bigger taller "zero gravity" type chairs, this one isn't hot in summer (lack of airflow).

The crappy little fold up chairs from sprts stores I find okay for less than 30-minutes (due also to an old back injury).

The three of us (wife, son and I) use the lower Eureka Curvy. We love them and they fold down very small (long & narrow). We prefer them lower for campfire sitting. Members of my extended family have some of the Eureka high back curvy's and they are quite comfortable as well.....just not the same "campfire position".

During longer canoe/kayaking trips or hiking/backpacking we take three of these. They are more comfortable than they may look and better than a log or the dirt after paddling for a few hours





They support 300lbs and weigh less than 2lbs.

unfortuately some of us younger folks can't get in and out of those lower chairs like we use to. Of course if they have an ejecting seat that might make a difference.
