My 2 kids at this point nap for 1-2 hours mid day and both crash by 830 leaving mom and dad some time to kick back and lounge

That will change over time I'm sure

cptfish....

I ordered two of the lafuma cham elips chairs in XL with headrest...besides my wanting the headrest that matches, the higher weight capacity I like too...standard size is 260lbs, which is ballpark my father in laws and a few other folks' weights I know and so added strength in case they decide to try out my chair is good...and it was 20 bucks more chair for the added size and head rest so not "terrible" (such is my rationalization. Ordered in color "obsidian" and ordered two of the matching camp stools you mentioned for 18 bucks a pop...had 60 bucks in amazon points as well to knock off my final price tag making it a bit more tolerable...they arrive in the mail this week....hopefully I like....

The stools are brilliant as I can use them as foot rests, side table, or as extra quick seating in a pinch as I camp with some siblings and friends here and there.

If I dont like these then I am not sure what I will try...but I have found enough reviews on these chairs that I am pretty sure they are very comfy. and only 6 lbs...not too bad...not terrible small - do not fold up as compact as the zip dees, but that will not be a prob for me at this point...at least these are very light.

We use our Zip Dee chairs for extra seating inside the coach, too.

Tried out lafuma cham elips XL last night - it was better than the transabed and had decent back support - seems like as you recline back support is less but I sat in it a while and felt "pretty good"

I think that some padding in the seat would take the final edge off for lounging in it - I am going to try again tonight and make a final determination

Overall I'm impressed given how light and pretty flat they fold down - also pretty comfortable - I only had 30 min to sit in it last night - more this weekend

Do you really ever get to sit down for more than 30 minutes?

I like to sit and read for example when kids nap or when we travel alone

Other times I like to just sit out and relax and enjoy - so it's fairly often I'll lounge out for a bit particularly at night after kids go to bed

Mostly though it won't be used for such but it is enough to consider such a criteria in my opinion

Got the stools in too - nice light little stools - make for nice extra campfire seating and such I think

I used a blanket over the length if the chair and man that made it really comfy

Good chance im sticking with these chairs

The ergonomics is good in upright position but as you recline back it seems to not support as well. - I used the blanket to support lower back in the full recline position and it is great

Also found that if I prop the front legs of the chair up it then is extra comfortable

I decided I did not like it very much when reclined - something about it just does not feel right - I'm more comfortable reclined in my costco beach chairs - after doing that side by side comparison I'm back to square one

I may try a zero gravity chair I'm not sure

After all your research you'll end up with some $45 zero gravity chairs from Walmart!
I've always been perfectly satisfied with the $10-$12 sling chairs- easy to take to events on the motorcycle, too!
I might splurge and get some $25 Coleman sling chairs one day.

I actually thought that would be funny - I hope to try one of theirs this weekend - and I think they are 25 bucks if I recall the link from earlier....

I may bop over to camping world today and see what they have to try out - hopefully a set of zip dees or some other varieties yet tried

Has anyone tried the Zip Dee lounger attachment?
If you liked the old school lawn chairs at your grandparents',you'll like the Zip Dees.
