Very very comfortable .BUT a little hard to get out of. Try them out, in the store, before you buy.

We have two of the Cabela's Chaise Loungers, very similar to the photo Kevin K. posted. They even go on sale once or twice a season if you check their website. Yes, they're a little bit hard to get out of, but they're so comfortable, why would you want to get up after you sit down?

I have two chairs from Ace hardware that are similar to these. I guess they have replaced the simple blue versions with new colors. Actually, the chairs I have look exactly like this one. Comfortable, and it is great if you want a sun or rain shade. The shade becomes the case when folded, it can be backpacked if necessary, and it fits in a small space compared to normal folding chairs.

La fuma, mesh recliner and mesh folding chairs. The best quality and light weight, RV friendly, All the knock off's are heavy and don't have the comfort or quality. I got the folding chairs at cabela's on line for $30, you can get the recliners for about $100, worth twice the money after just one camp trip. Some people are happy to sit on a walmart bag chair, I am not.

The Best ever Camp Chair?

That would be the 2<sup>ND</sup> row seats out of my Honda Odyssey.

Another strong vote for the Lafuma!!! I love my chaise. And frankly, don't care if I ever get out of it What a superb place for a nap, reading or just relaxing. I bought mine before there were knock-offs, cost me quite a bit of money because it was shipped from outside the U.S. and it was money well spent

I love my Cabela's loungers but I leave them on the porch- what do they weigh, does anyone know? I couldn't find a weight on the website to compare to Lafuma.

I'm with Donna and Shane - La Fuma. This was recommended to me by a nice couple in a Scamp in the RV Park in Banff Alberta.

We have lovely lounging chairs, but they take up a lot of room in the truck bed.

Our latest (last tow years') favorite: a pair of nice, padded seat and back chairs, director style, with arm tray, from Aldis. They fold up nicely, taking up very little room, and weigh little. Comfy for seating.
We hike a lot, don't lounge much, and as the lounging chairs are much larger, tend to leave them at home.

Another Lafuma fan here! We bought one, then quickly bought a second. Wouldn't leave home without them!
