    Car camping which is usually centered around astronomy I take the Anti-Gravity chair because it reclines allowing for good stargazing and satellite watching.

    Here's a link where I review the chair. Look several posts down in it and you'll see a comparison with my 3 other camp chairs/stools.

    This is what I use and I love it. Very comfortable.

    Not when I'm backpacking, but for car camping I bring a nice comfy folding chair.

    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 don't find it to be anymore difficult than getting into the hammock... and while I may be young, I have had several knee surgeries.

    I find that if you cross your legs in front of you and lean foreword you can get out quite easily, assuming that the ground isn't wet or nasty.

    I also like to lean those chairs against a log or rock for extra stability. It lets me recline a bit more without the worry of going too far back.

    Typically for backpacking I just use my thermarest ridgerest/hybrid sleeping pad as my sit pad. I'll stack logs or rock and make a "recliner" of sorts out of it.

    I generally travel solo, and thus usually just use my hammock. however, my raingear (poncho) can be turned into a bushchair pretty simply with a tripod of 6-7' poles and a 4' crosspiece (optional). i'll rig one of those up if i need it.

    Re: Do you use a camp chair?

    I do. I used to use a therm a rest chair things, but recently made my own Jerry chair. For 1.9 Oz and utilizing things (hiking poles and foot pad) I already bring with me on the trail I am very pleased.

    I just acquired my first hammock (WBBB 1.1 dbl), and the big decision was whether to invest in an UQ or use the pads I have. I opted for the latter, partly because I have a chair sleeve to go with my inflatable pad which makes a comfy chair around camp and for a mid-day break along the trail. The pad will also come in handy if for some reason I have to go to ground.

    I have an older Thermarest and an Exped Downmat 9, both with chair sleeves. I'll use one or the other with half a Z-Rest crossways under my upper torso for insulation in the hammock.
