I've had some very bad luck with a new type of folding chair. I think it's
been out for a couple of years. It consists of a nylon seat and back
supported by a steel tube frame that collapses into a bundle about 5" in
diameter and about 30" long. It come with a stuff sack. Sorry, I don't know
the brand name. Most of these chairs I've seen are blue. Some have arms, some
don't. The chair works fine, but all the joints are plastic. The plastic
joints just don't hold up. A total waste of money.
My choice is a lawn-chair style. They're a lot cheaper and last much longer.
