    Anyone have any recommendations?

    Our chairs are superb and superbyly comfortable, and each can take someone 2x our size! But they are really too bulky to take away.

    So can anyone recommend any that when folded down fold down to lext to nothing but are still comfortable?

    Thanks

    Peter - Good price - but folded size of (W x D x H): 22 x 16 x 94 cm is nothing special :( - the 113kg capacity is about 40-50kg over spec'd for us :Rofl1: Despite the amount of chocolate I eat.

    Our current chairs are 97 x 27 x 16 and the main issue is to reduce bulk

    The Kelsyus one mentioned above is 13 x 18 x 69 which sounds great - just researching that now (cheers Yoshi). EDIT: I'm on about the non-relining version

    Getting the biggest dimension under 60cm would be perfect :)

    We had stools when we were doing camping/biking, they do look good for that indeed Yosh but I wouldn't really want em myself otherwise than bike because they are just too low.

    We have a pair of - well they are sort of like Peters chairs but without the arms - err folding dining chairs? :Laughing: The bag has a nice wide strap on it. I don't think they are much longer than 60cm folded but you are governed by the height of the seat/length of legs really. And they came from the Gelert shop in Poertmadoc, now called summat else, but we've had em years anyway.

    Otherwise we also have a pair of folding recliners, which stay at home in the winter cos you can't sit outside and they take up too much room!

    I'm on the lookout for something similar, since there's not a great deal of room in my van. I think I'm looking for the near-impossible - a chair made from thin wire (or similar) that'll fold down to almost nothing but by the wonders of design and technology won't collapse after you've sat on it a few times.

    Thanks for the tips.
    We went for the Kelsyus chair, but went for the singing and dancing reclinging chairs with sun canopy. The sun canopy is actually really cool (literally) and will save us buying an umbrella.

    Small review of them here: http://www.doyourdream.co.uk/2010/05/excellent-small-outdoor-chairs-with-sun-canopy/

    The cheapest place we found including VAT & delivey (and we looked everywhere, so if you can beat it post here and annoy me! lol!) is a small company called Bizzyhome - possibly a small home business - but really quite good to deal with (one canopy was fauly and replaced with zero hassle). http://www.bizzyhome.co.uk/catalogue/detail.asp?pid=97298&gid=829 - £38 delivered

    The canopy is optional and is flat so can be hidden anywhere, and the chairs back reasonably small (about 1/2 the size of our existing chairs). They also convert to ruck sacks for easy carrying.

    So thanks :)

    Asda at the moment have 2 for £10 we found them to be comfy and at that price they are a "throwaway". :Smile:
