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.

Nope...More like this, only standard Coleman green, heavier duty fabric, and unfortunately no cup holders

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