thanks for the thread, Dave. We used to have a set of these type of chair and its very true, they're very comfy. I think we gave them to Melissa's mom at one point, as we moved into an apartment with no room for outdoor furniture, (or much camping gear, to be quite honest)

Consequently, As a christmas gift to ourselves we bought an inexpensive set of Colemen "accordian-style" chairs that have had several years of use with nary a problem. We use them monthly in the silty, sandy soil on Fiesta Island, and their bulk, however lengthy, is not impossible to stow since its only about 5 inches in diameter. They actually fit perfectly lengthwise in the footwells below the trio of carseats in my xj.
Oh and I"m 6"0' - 275lbs, for those who don't know me, so I'd have to give these types of chairs a passing grade, especially for the cupholder molded into the armrest.
To reiterate, though, those "low, director-style" chairs are muy excellente.
