I am currently using a Cabella's Directors Chair but am exploring something more compact and more comfortable. What are you using?

The tough part about camping is space constraints in a 90. Camp chairs have to have cup holders to.

I use Coleman oversized chairs. A recliner type would be great to... but bulkier

We got 2 of the GCI Pico chairs about 8 years back. Best combination of comfort and small size I've come across:

Pros:
Very sturdy, very well made, comfortable, doesn't cut off leg circulation across the front, folds down small
Cons:
Could have higher backs for longer sits, you have to be careful about dirt/sand ingress into sliding frames, you have to take 2 minutes the first time to figure out how to unfold/fold. (my wife has never had the patience ;-)

I think the Front Runner Expander and GCI copy of it are the best of the compromise between comfort, size and versatility. I don't like chairs that are all comfort, but not good at pulling up to a table for dining or working.

X2 Kermit but Doug?s right, it?s a hand made item and while sturdy they are pretty thin.. they do make a wide and I think beefier version.
I like the fact I can keep it in the truck behind the seat with the extended legs for tables.

We also have 2 of the front runner chairs, they are good too.

Does the Kermit chair need the leg extensions to sit high enough at a table to eat? It looks a bit short.
I'm also considering the Frontrunner chair.

I have had a pair of these for a few years now. They are very comfortable and have held up well.
I was going to recommend these since I borrowed them from Meatblanket 4 years ago. They were so good, I bought a set for my sister and bro-in-law.

But yes, they are awesome. Glad to hear they are still going strong after the AWD Cherocar adventure.
