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 !!
Ultra strong but feather weight
6061 Aerospace grade aluminium frame
Ergonomically designed extra thick padded 600D polyester cover
Fully adjustable legs
Oversized swivel and fold mud feet
Dimensions: 42cm (L) x 48cm (W) x 75cm (H)
Terry I bought a Fox Specialist Ajustalevel chair, without considering the weight....4.5 kg!!! I returned it. I bought the Fox Duralight 3.2 Kg and a very good chair. I also bought a Chub RS Plus Superlight for roving, stalking and long walk ins to swims. It is very good and only 2.26 Kg and Â£35.00, well worth a look. (see link)
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 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 Â£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
