I have two Lafuma river chairs - the Champs Elips for general sitting/eating/card playing, and the Lafuma Lounger for power napping. The chair is super light weight, and a perfect height for comfortable sitting. It does have a three position recline which is fairly good for relaxing. For my Middle Fork late season fly-in trips I just take this chair. For the Main Salmon I bring both. The power lounger is the best napping chair I have ever had, and worth every extra ounce to haul it down the river. I have noticed over the years, that the folks who give us the most crap for carrying the lounger down the river, are the ones whose butts we have to kick out of those chairs by day two on the river. Then most of them show up with their own lounger the next summer. Both of my Lafuma chairs are super sturdy and stand up well to river miles. The lounger is a little lighter than my old Travel Chair version, and the Champs Elips is insanely light. I tried a cheaper Cabela's version of the lounger and didn't like it as well....doesn't elevate the feet enough for the perfect napping position.
