Well, I am following all this 'chair' talk as I am also looking for the 'perfect' comfy, lightweight, folds easy, etc. camp chair. We have the Zip Dees but not too comfy for short/small person like me. (hubby not too crazy about them either) We did have the Zip Dee extension but didn't add much to comfort in my opinion--so sold that. So, will keep reading this thread & thanks a bunch for doing the research!!

I got 2 Zip-Dee chairs recently with the lounge addition. I haven't tried them myself yet but the wife did and said it was comfortable and liked the added lounge. I'll give my opinion in a few weeks when I'm on the road with it for awhile. I like their compactness and that they fit into that small storage space and are out of the way.

Hub meditates in his Laguna zero gravity chair. Seriously. He says it allows him to go deeper into his meditations because there are no distracting pressure points.

Typing this from my strongback chair in my backyard. Exceedingly comfy. The frame for the back juts out so the material creates a perfect support. I wish this mechanism was in my kayak - just got back from a 90 minute GLORIOUS paddle (great week to be in New England) but my back doesn't like that setup. This is really nice.

The chair folds up larger than your standard sling chair and that's about the only downside I see so far.

I tried the Zero Gravity (Cabela's version) and it weighs about 35-40 # and is still huge when folded. It also just wasn't comfortable to me at all. Going back tomorrow.

I think I could survive an entire weekend in front of a fire in this chair and just might test that out (in the name of research of course). :-)

lafuma’s zero gravity chairs are in the 16-17 lb range...I think gander mountains was 19 lbs....35 lbs would be a heafty chair...I think there are lighter ones....

We bought ours from LL Bean. They are very comfortable, a little pricey, but worth it...

Yeah - oddly enough, we got these strongbacks at LL Bean (at their store) and tried 3 including their Zero Gravity. While lighter than Cabela's it still didn't do it for me compared to this. Everyone's mileage surely varies on this. Here's to happy camping sitting in whatever chair floats your boat. :-)

The only thing I have bought at L. L. Bean's store is a back pack on clearance for $15 that someone apparently had returned. It has "Astro Dan" embroidered on it. That is silly stuff right there. I should use that as a email address or forum handle. I refer to it as my Astro Dan bag. It might have cost $85-$100 or more without that silly embroidery on it. I wonder if I could find some Astro Dan chairs on clearance. Who is Astro Dan and what is the significance of that silly name?

Astro Dan sent you that bag from the future. Didn't you read the enclosed warning?
