Light comfortable chair

#2
I think this is the model I travelled some distance to buy only to find the stated weight of 3.2kgs was out by about 4 or 5kgs. So if you want a light chair I would check first.

Not sure you're talking about the same model there John, I have one and although I haven't felt the need to weigh it yet it feels nice and light when carried.
It's a nice chair Terry and I've been complimented on it by several other anglers who have dropped into my swim to take a closer look. Only criticism is that is narrower than most which is a slight downside if you have a big-boned butt like myself but this may be accentuated by the fact that it has arms on it which may increase my perception of less width. The arms may also be a hindrance if you fish holding the rod at an angle. Apart from that it's a good chair and comfortable.
Heavier, but wonderful in the comfort stakes is the JRC Stealth X-lite. It's no two-ton Tessie ( hence the model name ) but if you're prone to a little bankside siesta ( I am ! ) it can be dangerous as it can adjust back to virtually flat and you'll need an alarm clock of sufficient volume to rouse you !!

Will look at the jrc but like the fact the fox has arms quicker to get out of with my aching bones ... Jason I have the korum supalight probably the most uncomfortable chair I have owned I struggle to spend more than an hour in it

I personally don't like arms on a fishing chair for exactly the same reason (restriction of width) even though I am not a big feller.

I recently bought the JRC Stealth X Lite chair and at 3kg it suits my roving tactics perfectly.

Very light, very comfortable and if you shop around, good value ;)

I have recently been on the lookout for a new chair as an xmas present from the misses ( I did have to tell her) I went for the korum roving kit. The lightweight chair is around 3.6lkg. But also comes with a rod holdal and rucksack. Not bad for £80 from foster of Birmingham. I always keep looking for easier ways to carry my gear and what I like about this you can attach the chair to your rucksack leaving hands free to carry even more crap with you
