The granite chairs look to be much more stable. Plus, you don't have to carry them.

Granite is always crooked. Maybe you never sat in a chair in the backcountry, but at 1lb, it would be totally worth it.

"Granite is always crooked."

That's why they invented foam sleep pads.

Foam sleep pads are for dogs. And they don't seem to get it sometimes...

I guess that I've been dogging it for a long time then.

I've been carrying a Sling Light for more than 10 years, a pound and a half with the headrest... I don't leave home without it.
