Rating: 4 / 5

For trips when you want some extra comfort this chair works surprisingly well. Data: weight= 11oz, length when stored= 13” long—a much smaller/lighter bundle than most other L/W chair options. Would have given this a 5 except for cost & weight.

Pros: Simple design, surprisingly comfortable—check out detailed review at http://www.backpackgeartest.org/reviews/Camp%20Chairs%20and%20Seating/Chairs/Kifaru%20Field%20Chair/

Cons: heavy aluminum supports—carbon/composite would be much lighter. Costs: $41, could be made (DIY) for much less.

Update: Dropped the weight by 4oz by ditching the aluminium supports--replaced them with fixed length graphite. Got these free from golf supply/repair shop.
