Not a webbed chair, but lightweight, comfortable, and folds nice and flat:

My friend and I were catching baby sturgeon (and releasing them) from the fish deck of his boat last week without getting out of these chairs. We'd have probably had to stand up for a keeper.

Love these chairs, they are oversized and comfy!

I used these chairs in a client's media room and had the cloth backs removed and customized for the couple. I think I went with a take off Speilberg and some other director, incorporating the clients name.

One could have the fellow who is embroidering the caps at this website, do the same on the back of the chairs...could be fun to see Boler on the back!

Cheers!

I found this web chair at http://www.beachchairs.com its a steel frame though.

This is the Mid Back model and sells for $49.95 they also have a high back for $59.95


I asked if they carried an aluminum one but alas they don't.

I went looking for lightweight last summer because my husband always reminds me that we have to be careful about how much weight we are pulling and found a director's type chair from Coleman -- not cheap but super light. I carried it around downtown from the store, uphill a couple of miles to where I was meeting friends for lunch, then back downhill a mile again to the Seabus, then onto public transit and home. It was sooooo easy to carry. Another good thing is that it is not as low as t he old web chairs -- so if you are really getting older not having to sink down so far is a good thing as well (at least as far as I am concerned). There are lots of other makers of this type of chair but don't know if they are as light. Saw some at dog shows last summer with kennel /dog names embroidered on them. Perhaps I should get some more and put "Great Escape" on them. Anyway, I really love this chair -- looks good, is comfy -- only downside is cost.

Oops, just checked their Canadian website and don't see it anymore. They have a deluxe looking one for about the same price though. Have a look at www.colemancanada.ca.

I went to Wally World today for toilet unplugger (My life is so glamorous)

I looked and they had EXACTLY what I want.. if it were not for the steel frame!

I don't get it.. they are exactly the same as the old ones, webbing, height, look.. everything, yet they have "improved" them by making them weigh about 10 lbs each!

They were 24 bones. I didn't get them, it was too frustrating!

Gina,

The stats are that the average American is a lot more hefty and broad of beam than they were when the aluminum chair you are looking for was popular. The aluminum jobbies are not weight rated to stand up to the tonnage that most of your contemporaries have to put into them. They bend and collapse under weight. For you, this is a non-issue. You might find your chair either in a second hand thrift type place or in the children's furniture novelty area.

Thus said she has who bent a few aluminum jobbies in her day.

Yeah, I checked eBay first thing when it was looking bad for store buy. Thats where I got the idea from the prices that these are "Collectors Items".

The Riverside ones would be perfect.. cept they don't fold!
