Use this superlight chair for backpacking, hiking, relaxing at the park and more. Weighing in at only 18 ounces, it stows in a stuff sack the size of a water bottle and is a snap to assemble. The Monarch Chair is made with lightweight nylon fabric and breathable air mesh suspended over a revolutionary aluminum tent pole structure. When sitting you balance it on two rubber feet, allowing you to rock back and forth. Available at REI. $59.99 alitedesigns.com
