I used the old style webbed chairs. With the aluminium frames they are light as a feather, they fold easily and they are quite comfy.

They are hard to find anymore tho. Sears/KMART has a version with large plastic arms with cup holders in them.

I'm with Gina, the old fashion web chairs. Since they're not cloth, if you leave them out and moisture gets to them overnight, a swipe or two with a papertowel and you can sit down... unlike some other types that will give ya a wet behind!

I've had back surgery and the type of chair you posted Kevin, gives me such a backache after about 5 minutes, I can hardly get out of the dang thing.

I'd sacrifice weight for comfort if necessary.

Two aluminum chairs, will travel!

Car Shows.....

Did I hear someone mention my second most favorite pastime, .......CARSHOWS!!!!
My poor aging/decrepid back is packing it in on me and those bag (....'sac' chairs, in 'Murica??? LOL) chairs just dont' cut it for me anymore either for Park n Sits OR campout weekends, with Rod or daily driver and the Trillium. The idea of using one or both of the removable seats from my wifes new PT Cruiser makes me cringe thinking about using one (no matter HOW comfortable they are!!) whilst sitting around a good ol fashoned camp fire (with sparks/ambers flying everywhere).
In the appended pic you MIGHT be able to see the backside of a collapsible chair, NOT a bag chair, we found at CostCo two years ago. VERY comfie for a porker (300lbs & 6'3") of my stature!!!

NOTE: This picture was taken at the KOA in Warrenton OR. July 4th weekend at a small rod run I hosted there.

The style is good...the price is not! We have similar chairs without the arm accessories purchased from Costco that were way less expensive. Doug's chair is a good one and available at Costco during the outdoor season. Too bad they don't have them now to put on a Christmas wish list.

I do like my LaFuma recliner, though its heavy, clumsy, and pricey. I can read or nap or chat with people going by. - Ron

Ace Hardware had them with the tables at a good price this summer. But be wary as they are not all equal. They have different weight limits and different fabrics.
