These chairs by Helinox...

These chairs by Helinox are great I have the chair one it is light weight and easy to pack and set up. It is so nice to have a chair to sit on, better then just setting on a log.

This chair had been...

This chair had been getting great reviews for a reason.. it's compact, light weight, and comfortable. It is pretty expensive ($112CAD) but it comes with a 5 year warranty so i figure a comfortable camp chair for $20 a year is pretty reasonable. Its small enough to fit pretty well anywhere in a kayak or bag. Even if you overload your boat its small enough to fit between your legs or under/behind your seat.

There is a downside however, I have been using it on possibly the worst ground for it.. soft, slopey, fine-silt river bank. With nothing on the legs it sinks into the ground and puts undue pressure on the pole connectors. Therefore, I also picked up one of the Helinox Ground Sheets (size small) which has completely solved the problem. On the super soft terrain, the ground sheet not only stops the legs from sinking, but you can build up the ground underneath it to create a level platform pretty easily. It also fits into the carrying case really well. It is pretty expensive for a mesh sheet ($35CAD) but the corners are reinforced and it's really well built. If you're planning on using the chair one for river camping I highly recommend investing in the ground sheet.

I bought 3 of these...

I bought 3 of these compact folding chairs for a 5-day canoe outing for me and my boys - all 180+ pounders. They are simple to unpack, set up and repack into an included storage bag, and were the envy of the others in the group - except for the guide who also had one! Although they appear fragile they were solid and comfortable on rock, grass and sand. They are not inexpensive, but we found them more than worth the cost in comfort and convenience.
