Kermit Chair

FYI: Kermit Chair Co. just recently raised the chair prices $20. They now are $159 plus shipping

Ordered one recently, should be here any day now. Will post a review shortly.

ALPS Mountaineering chair is absolutely the most comfortable. Good support and the upper back will come off for compactness.

Costco is selling Timber Ridge zero-g chairs for $59 in our area. They're comfortable enough, but are large and heavy. We took a pass on them, but we have a friend who swears they are awesome and can't understand why we didn't buy two or 4.

I received 2 LL Bean folding rockers for Father's Day. They are durable and very comfortable.
A little heavy but I same sure they will be around long after I am in the great campground in the sky!

GCI Outdoor Outdoor Reclining Chair. My wife and I picked up two of these for our move to Alaska using our dividend from REI. We ended up paying about $20 for the pair with the 20% coupon...

Chairs are sturdy but the yellow locking mechanism that keeps the legs locked in the "out" position can require a bit of force. I typically use my foot... Also the seat retains a bit of water so fold them up when inclement weather is expected.

Comfort is good and there aren't any bars that hit in an unnatural angle or place (I'm 5'11", 175 lbs). My wife (5'5") says the same. The most reclined position is great for looking up at the stars but begs for somewhere to put your feet up.

Overall we would purchase again.

Anyone familiar with what's going on with zipdee and not being sold right now on the Airstream store site? Says there's some quality issue?

We love our REI Hangtime chairs. They are perhaps the most comfortable we have tried.

Ok - new "chair" addition

I've been into "hammock camping" in backpacking and kayak camping in the past year and had to buy this on a sale online today.

Good for you but my body is only good for about 1 hour in a hammock. Arthritis is not hammock friendly.

Thanks to the forum I purchased a Strongback Elite chair a month ago tried it and like it so much I bought 3 more when I found a clearance sale at Marks Work Warehouse Canada! I have back pain and could not stand most folding chairs for too long. These are very supportive for your lower back and now I can sit for hours without pain.

Chairs with table

I have some folding (flat) chairs with a table attached to be perfect. Dicks, Big 5 pretty much ubiquitous.

I am 6'4" 250 pounds muscle not bulges. I want a chair that I can fit comfortably in.. I'd also a lounge type chair I can lean back in an nap. Money is not an issue.

IMO, if price is not an issue, the LaFauma make the best lounge chairs. I have two of the zero gravity and they have held up very well over the years.

As to a regular outdooe chair I would recommend that you to an outdoor store and sit in them before you buy. IMO the backs of them are different and provide different comfort depending on the individual. I also carry a Kermit chair to include the extension legs as it is compact and comfortable at least for me. I am 230 and like you all muscle however my muscles are resting.
