Bob,

I like the Strongback chairs too. When I was having pretty bad back spasms, it was the only chair I could use in the house!

The downside is they are longer than other "bag chairs" and don't fit in the bottom step of the 5.0 . They ride on the floor or in the back of the truck.

They might fit in your big storage compartment under the loft.

Glad I found this thread as I was looking for camp chairs. Just ordered 2 Strongback chairs.

I like the old fashioned aluminum frame web chairs. Lightweight to carry from campfire to campfire. A paper towel drys them off if dew or rains hits them. I've had back surgery. Some of the fabric/canvas chairs are comfortable for about 2 minutes... then, oh my aching back.

My very favorite though is the Lafuma!

Strongback

Another vote for Strongback chairs. They are too big for convenient storage, but I have spent as much as 3 hours at a time at outdoor concerts. 30 hours over 4 days. No problem at all.

Another advantage of the web chairs is they can be dried in seconds.

I've been happy with my zero gravity lounger. Very relaxing, and I often read in it.

I'm a big fan of the Pico chair. They fold up really small to the size of a laptop. Makes them easy to store in a small space, plus they are light and easy to carry. The mesh dries really quickly.

Of course, most compact things are pricey, as these are: Amazon.com : GCI Outdoor PICO Arm Chair : Camping Chairs : Sports & Outdoors

I've been using mine for 3 years now, no problems, other than having to lube them after a trip to the beach.

Pico looks nice... but maybe not the $12, 990 one...

I have one that looks a lot like this except color and logo which came from Costco last year. I carry two chairs (one of me, plenty of room for two chairs)- one for lounging in at the campsite and the other for group gatherings. For the latter I use a Picnic Time type folding chair.

They ride in the back of the Forester if I might want to get into the trailer during the drive.

Can you use the Strongback chairs in sandy soil? looks like the Elite would sink in.

We have a couple of vintage web chairs, but those Strongbacks look really nice! I can see how it would really support your back.

FYI, Costco has a couple of types (at least in Fresno where I was looking)- the nice padded recliner with the cup rest, and a folding one with a side table. I thought the latter was less comfortable than some of the folding side table chairs, though- it had back attached to seat (instead of separate) and seemed to slope down. I love the recliner, though, and have one I bought last year.

We have a selection of chairs and decide which ones to take along on a trip by trip basis. We have two director style chairs, two Strongbacks and two Zero Gravity ones. Also two small, folding three legged stools. When not camping the chairs are used on the deck. When a bunch of family get together we need the extra seating!
