Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've never liked the usual "bag chairs" - the arm rests generally slide downward until they're unusable; and I always feel like I'm slumped too far down when sitting in one. As a senior citizen, getting out of a bag chair is more difficult, too.
While this chair takes up more room than a bag chair, the ingenious take-apart backrest makes this fold into a compact unit (much smaller than most "director's chairs"). Putting it together is a snap - and it's super-comfy to sit in. It seems very well-made and durable - assuming you don't leave it sitting in the sun to rot out- it should last for years?!
