Drew,

I did some research on this last year after my 10 yr old REI chairs finally snapped. I ended up getting a pair of Travel Chair Teddy's.

http://www.travelchair.com/the-chairs/579V/



I'm not willing to pay hundreds for a top of the line chair. These retain for about $40, and are very well built, dry quickly per the fabric design, and have a beer holder. The chair got good reviews on line, and my 1 year experience has been positive.

Avoid the $9.99 ones though - The one I brought with me to the Rubithon trip didn't hold up for 5 minutes against our Canuck friend - The other one I bought lasted about 5 minutes longer when I used it - Our Coleman Loveseat is the bomb though...That sucker is probably 10+ years old and has held up great. It has been abused every year on camping trips , Cruise Moab, soccer games, Chatfield, you name it.

Thanks Matt, I will need to track some down for a test sit.

Reviving this old thread as I've been threatening to try out one of the Kermit Chairs. http://www.kermitchair.com/?gclid=CK...FQcIaQodaekALg

Initial impressions are pretty good. Quality and finish are solid. It packs down super small. I'd wager 8 of these chairs would equal the volume of my current Kelty camp chair folded. My only complaint is that it is definitely short. Fine for campfire sitting but to eat at a table would require a short table. There are leg extensions available and a drink holder which its currently lacking. My Kelty has one in each armrest plus an attached bottle opener. So it wins that category hands down.

I'll report back again after I get a trip or two with it. I have another chair in mind if this does not work for me. Good thing is Bridger needs a new chair and this will definitely work for him.

Aw man, I wish I'd seen this thread a few weeks ago. I bought an REI Hang Time chair and it's been quite disappointing.

Thankfully, 1 year return policy if it again.

Well that one looks pretty good for its price. The Kermit requires another "C note". But it's hand made in the USA of actual wood. It was kind of a splurg on my end. Even smelled of fresh lacquer when I opened the box.

Kelty low love seatfor me.
https://kelty.com/low-love-seat/

If you don't need it right away, kelty does a friends & family sale once or twice a year. Which will get you it for $40. Low enough that Shrimpie can climb in easily (or young kids if you prefer, reclined seating position, Big pockets that are split for a drink holder & another thing.
