Sea To Summit Air Chair or similar?

Post by moab » Fri Apr 06, 2018 5:36 pm ... 2=1&o3=956

A friend of mine had something similar but it was standalone and did not use his sleeping mat. It literally use to save my back at the beach. Versus sitting cross legged all the time. Getting older and having had three back surgeries. I'm considering one of these for my kit. For static positions or at the end of long days hiking.

I have a Klymit X mat and a Big Agnes insulated and non insulated air mattress. I have not checked to see if they have something similar. But I'm looking for the lightest weight/most compressable version of one of these chairs.

Any recommendations? Other than sitting against a stump? ;) This one's called the air chair. Any other names these go by? I'm going to search "camp chair" and see what I find. Was originally just gonna decide between a piece of USGI sleeping mat or just folding my air mattress up and sitting on it. But when I was reminded of these that support your lower back. I was sold.

And I'm brought back to the inevitable Outdoor Gear Labs! ... ir/ratings

I had the thermarest version of the airchair, but almost never used it as it was just so darn fussy and didn't want the extra wear and tear on my sleeping pads.

I know just use a crazy creek when a sit pad isn't enough, it is far heavier but it also doubles as a bulletproof sleeping pad backup, either a 3/4 length or full length if you get the power lounger. I will likely upgrade to the new lighter Hex chair at some point.
