Big Agnes says:
Lightweight backpacking chair for the backcountry and beyond
The most comfortable 2lb. chair out there, our Mica Basin Camp Chair has a supportive seat and backrest, durable nylon Robic fabric, and sits an easy-to-get-into 16" off the ground. The perfect packable chair to bring along to any camp, concert, picnic, or road-trip adventure.

Big Agnes' Mica Basin Camp Chair is a bit too heavy for a true backpackers seat but if you are looking for a packable basecamp chair or something to compliment the van life then this is a nice little option. It is quick and easy to put up, is very comfortable and just like a traditional camp chair!
The Mica Basin might look quite small compared to the heavy chairs of this type that you're used to - but it has about the same level of comfort. Really good for anyone happy to take a bit on weight for a higher level of comfort when you need to sit down. It suits single day walking or it is packable enough for use with camper vans and caravans.
