Sit on it !

What do you use to sit on around the camp fire on a whitewater multi-day trip ?

Regular folding camp chair, even in my 11' boat I bring one, along with my Paco pad, I scale down on other gear, but give these two items priority. Places like target, Wallmart, and the like sell them pretty cheap.

A little different option we are trying. Comfy in the living room, flat/just a couple inches thick when is storage mode (seem like they will fit very nicely in the drop bag). in 9 days they get a 21 day test, will report how they combine with a variety of cocktails.

we used those in Honduras for a couple of years (when we were living down there with the Peace Corps), and they held up fine...make sure, however, that you reinforce the fabric attachment to the back. I would add a couple of extra HD staples, or even better, staples and glue...

Thanks for the tip! Think I reinforce before we even use them.

I have a chair similar to the one pictured above, made here locally. I really like it because it doesn't cause pressure under my thighs like most camp chairs do. I also like the angle of the chair for comfort.

The main downsides are it is a little harder to get in and out of (you can tip the chair back if your not being careful, and it is lower to the ground than most chairs), and it takes up a little more space on the boat.

I have had mine in Deso and on the Salt so far and I take it to my nephews sports games and any other outdoor event like concerts.

I have this one:

Super small and I do keep it in my kayak along with all of my other gear on multi-days. That way I can use it for the beach in the morning and not have pack it up and give to a gear boat. They can be a little tricky on super rocky terrain to get stable, but other than that it is slick. If it is going to be your primary chair I would go sit in one to make sure you like it.
