Group hangs I probably need a beefier chair for sitting around the fire if car camping, but if a group hike and hang I bring my Grand Trunk micro stool modified with a cuben seat to get the weight down to ~8.5oz. That is the stool I take for most solo trips too as I cook away from where I sleep and I want to be able to save my knees.
"If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen." 1 Peter 4:11
My Trail Journal
Canoe camping I'll take a stool. Car camping for the weekend a chair. And when I go for a week back east to run whitewater, I pack the fold up lounger to laze around the campground. The hammock is too far from the fire and the rest of my buddies. They don't hear my snores and I don't hear theirs
One of the greatest features of the Coosa Kayak is the comfort of the chair while in the boat:
...and versatility of chair while in the camp:
I'll second the Alite Monarch Butterfly... It's a good chair and really isn't that difficult to get in and out of.
I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do for a chair when the hammock is too far away. Cooking is solved, I'm making one of those shelves that goes on a tree!
I use a folding stool similar to the JRB. About a lb but never weighed it because it's going no matter what. At that age where sitting to remove shoes, clothes and doing foot maintainance is so much easier off a stool. Then too it is nice having something to sit on around the fire.

[QUOTE=MAD777;949841]Solo - no chair. Group event sitting around a campfire - REI Flex Lite chair. No gymnastic experience required. I was the envy of the fire ring last weekend with it.
I have got to get me one of these. When I do,,not telling the wife,,then when she packs with me,,will let her carry her JRB stool,,and I will sneak this with me and pull it out and put it together,,and sit in it while she has her stool... and let the argueing begin!!!
