    I think the overwhelming sway of opinion will be behind the JRC X-Lite.

    Very comfortable and light, as a dedicated chair destroyer I've had no problem at all with mine and I've been through a few

    Don't ask!

    Skip reckons I swing into 'em from overhanging trees.

    I've had multiple frame failures and stitching coming apart, usually under the seat where it is doubled over the frame.

    Exhibit 1 - Nash Nomad:



    I've destroyed two of these, the Nash chairs were also particularly prone to flexing on the nylon/plastic collars which joined the adjustable legs to the chair itself.

    Exhibit 2 - JRC Contact:



    I could go on but I reckon you get the drift

    The stealth x lite can be found a bit cheaper.

    Another thumbs up for the Stealth Xlite.

    I got it on the advice of this forum and its the best chair I have ever owned & perfect for what your describing.

    I saw one of those in the window of a tackle shop and decided to go in and try it, it was incredibly light but nowhere near as comfortable or sturdy as the X-Lite.

    To top it all off there was another chair beside it which I also decided to have a sit in, this one had arms and when I put my weight on them to get up one of them folded out and completely snapped off.

    Another chair destroyed and I'd not even bought it!

    I left the shop a bit sharpish.
