  1. Default Truly compact folding chair

    I like to carry a chair but my sessions are highly mobile and I might only use it around a third of the time, spending the rest either standing or sitting on the ground. For my money most of the specialist fishing ones are too heavy/bulky.

    Has anyone tried anything similar to this? It would have to be lightweight and ideally able to either fit in a small quiver or strap to the outside of a small rucksack. I'm aware of all the specialist ones out there, just looking for something a bit more compact when folded:-

    If I bother to take a chair to the river it's been the JRC X-lite for many years now - wouldn't use anything else...
    That's about as big as a fish that big gets

    I believe the anywhere chair is the lightest folding chair available.

    Though the Tresspass Perch style which is ubiquitous and available under many brands, folds pretty small and is more comfy.

    Korum SupaLite isn’t a bad choice.

    I agree. It's only 2.4 kilos and light and comfortable .

    Might look pointless, but you can lean into it some with the straps supporting the back so certainly helpful for those with back issues.

    been looking for exactly this as I usually cycle to where ever I fish , decided to settle on no chair at all and just kneel down , if I get tired I switch to the method and lean up against a tree ( in the shade )

    Ok I thought the anywhere chair was a cryptic reference to the bank but it turns out I do have one of those anyway, didn't know they were called that. I wouldn't recommend one if you have back issues as you are kind of cradled, also they are a sod to get out of and fold flat when you do so are a sod to get back into. They are comfortable on a gently sloping bank if you're pretty nimble and like sitting on the deck or if you want to laze about with a lead, float fishing is hard on one unless your'e danglin' in the margins, which is what I use mine for so it is useful just depends where.
