I have to vote for the Kermit. I took a trail sling coast to coast in '07 and it worked ok, I found that after a while the top and bottom bars became uncomfortable even with the extra padding. One of the other comments had a link to a backpackers review saying the trail sling wouldn't hold 75#, I can assure that is false, I am 6'1 + 250# and the sling had no problem with me.
The Kermit is not as small and not nearly as light but it gives you a real chair with arms and a cup/bottle holder, I'll never leave home without it again. Another + the Kermit is made in Tennessee not China or Mexico.
