I feel the lafuma zero gravity are it! I've used and abused mine now a couple years and still going strong

And ohhh so comfy

"Hammocks" are extremely arthritis friendly IF hung and used properly. Often people lay in them bunched up like a banana but this is user error....must have proper "hang angle" and "lay on a diagonal".

I am primarily speaking of "gathered end" hammocks and not those crappy back yard ones with wife spreader bars and made from like rope webbing...I am talking about "Brazilian style" hammocks that are 10+ feet long pieces of rectangular fabric with ends gathered and tied up.

The Amok Dramr is something else and is extremely comfy I assure you.

Time to revive this thread in anticipation of warmer weather. Forever in search of the ultimate portable chair.

Has anyone tried the Helinox Beach Chair? I was wondering how well the feet work in the sand. Also, I would be concerned about sand getting into the tubes when breaking it down on the beach. Otherwise, I like its light weight and ease of carrying it to the beach. I really like my Helinox camp chairs.

We also use Alps mountaineering chairs. Very well built. Should last for years.
Check out their website. They have 21 different models and colors. Even a reclining model.

I love our lafuma zero gravity lounge chair for laying back and sleeping and our Strongback chairs for just sitting around I don’t think you can go wrong with either

We’ve used our LaFuma zero gravity chairs for almost 2 years and we still love them.

Helinox Sunset chairs

We chose Helinox Sunset primarily because they are the height of most standard chairs so when we’re with others we would be at the same sitting height. They roll up to be compact, are light and store staff have used them happily for their camping trips. Not excessive space in the GTour so size counts. They are small enough to carry to a beach when needed.

We have the Sunset also, but haven't used them on the beach, because of concern of the feet sinking into the sand. How have you found them working in the sand? I would love to hear from anyone with experience with the Helinox beach chairs.
