Floyd has some good points. I only take my Classic webchair when I know I'll be toting it from campsite to campsite during a gathering. When I'm going out alone, and expect to stay within my own site... I take my Lafuma... NIRVANA!

There have been times for all of us when we would give next weeks paycheck for ANY chair. Like when back packing, or the time you drove a few hundred miles to camp and forgot your chair....DOH! The chairs Norm and Ginny use are like the ones I used for many years traveling to the local desert to ride motorcycles. You could find them at Thrifty drug for $4.99. They were weightless, got your butt off the ground, and would blow away when you forgot to fold them at night. For camping in a fiberglass egg those chairs are hard to beat. We also would buy those banana loungers at Thrifty, which you could sleep on in a pinch. They had steel tube frames and in lieu of webbing used plastic tubing wrapped around the frame. They could lock in several angles at both ends. Those suckers were expensive.... $12.95..... We bought em anyway. Time has brought us newer designs with more bells and whistles, at the expense of pork. Yes these modern computer designed chairs are heavier, and more comfortable, and you throw away if they break. We all have different needs, as our backsides are different, so there is no answer to the question. I am new to FGRVing, but it is similar to camping in the back of a pickup in that you can't take everything with you. I vote for simple lightweight chairs for weekenders, and you can splurge for the longer trips.

Russ, Well said. We love our aluminum webbed chairs. On our long trips we can not justify the lounge type chairs that many find comfortable, and rightfully so.

Generally the lounge chairs are steel heavy and bulky nd we are not willing to give space to the in our smaller than average tow vehicle.

We do try to carry four chairs with us to provide seats for the visitors we get, that means small and light.

Tops for Durability!

Just had to add...I have used these chairs for 20 years and am the second owner.
These are my camping chairs, they are 40 to 50 years old! Now, can you top that for durability. I love the retro look, they are sturdy and still have the original webbing. And match my CT13.

What are your favourite chair brands/models?

Hi Mouse,
Not sure of the brand. We've had them for over a year now. To get the picture I just searched in Google Images for camp chairs. I noticed the images will lead you to vendors. Good luck!

Strongback

I have a very sensitive back. Almost every chair I have ever tried either made my lower back hurt or the middle of my thighs were digging into the crossbar. I needed a anatomically correct camp chair. A friend saw these and I was given one for christmas. Nirvana!!! Can literally sit in it for hours. A friend who is fulltiming sits in one exclusively - Strongback Chair

Mine finally broke after five years or so. I loved it. I can't find another one that is at a similar price. I'll have to search more, I guess.

The trouble with a comfy chair is, when I go to a gathering, it seems like somebody else plops in my chair while I am away for an instant.

I now like my low rider, adjustable back, canvas chair with cooler on the back. It comes with backpack straps. But I still liked the round one better.

@2wiresdave

Those Strongbacks look like they'd be really comfortable. Do you have the Elite, or the Zen model?

Noel, I have the elite. I like the solid padded arms vs the stretched fabric personally. Also the elite if I remember correctly has slightly larger overall dimensions.
