Camping Chair Recommendations

What is your favorite camping chair recommendation? I am looking for the most comfortable, lightweight, durable and fairly compact (can fit under booth table when traveling). I want to replace two 10 year old zero gravity recliners.

Interesting topic! I don't have an opinion quite yet, but would like to hear what other's think as well!

Frankly, I think the all stink.
The only one I can sit in for any length of time is one built like this:
Sports Chair- Navy - Picnic Time 809-00-138 - Folding Chairs - Camping World
I've had a disc repaired between L4 and L5 and I need lumbar support. You just don't find that in camping chairs. The closest I come is the chair above which at least lets me sit up straight. Most camping chairs are curved or webbed at the back of your "butt" so you feel like you're sliding out of them. That KILLS my back.

Every time I'm in a camping store or sports store I go sit in every chair they have - and I've never found one that's comfortable for more than a few minutes.

X2. Our first chairs were horrible and didn't last but a few weeks. We both have bad backs so now we use chairs similar to BuddyRay's link. We haven't found one yet with any kind of lumbar support.

We have a pair of these: https://www.amazon.com/Lafuma-Cham-E...001GQ3D6K?th=1

We find them very comfortable and you have the option of sitting up straight or reclining. We also like having the ability to use them as a chair to sit at the end of a picknic table, or trailer's dining table, or a folding table like https://www.amazon.com/Cosco-Product...=folding+table

BTW, we bought them a few years ago and paid (IIRC) around $80 for each of them, but not at Amazon. I used Amazon because of the additional information there.

Yikes! I was going to ask what makes a folding camping chair worth $168 each...

Fishing Chair - Ultimate 4-Position Outdoor & Fishing Chair

A friend of mine had one of these. It sat great. I'm thinking it will be a great birthday present from my kids.

Thanks everyone for your response. I have two of the director style with the folding side table which we like. The ones I want to replace are the two zero gravity recliners which I paid around $60 each ten years ago at either sams or Costco. There was no inventory when I went to Sams last week. I may just wait until the camping season items are restocked next spring to see what they have to offer and keep using the old ones.

I am familiar with Lafuma chairs. But wow, prices have really gone up. I just found them on overstock.com. However, at this price point, I would have to have a few glasses of wine before I hit purchase. They are very nice, comfortable and good quality.

Can anyone think of any chairs because of quality or comfort NOT to buy?
