You are camping to ride...or you ride to camp.

Nothing wrong with both approaches, don't get me wrong.

But what suits your needs doesn't mean it suits everyone else's
Maybe you need a new bike.

But really, I understand your point. There's no other place I'd rather be than in the saddle. But I know that's not the case for everybody. Hence: YMMV

I have been using the Thermarest Lounge kit for about 4 years and love it. (i'm sitting in it right now because my porch furniture doesn't exist). For those of you that have problems getting up (knees and back) it'll probably suck pretty bad. If you're like me and just want to lean back and drink a beer after a long day and not do a lot of moving until bed, its wonderful. The trick is tightening the straps so the chair sits at an acute angle and lean back with cooler at arms reach.
Since its a "dual purpose" item in that you're carrying a sleeping pad anyway/ it protects the pad/ offers a REALLY COMFORTABLE (in my opinion) chair.
I do own a Kermit chair and because of my tendency to hate buying furniture, its my garage lounge machine.

To each his/her own, but packing a chair makes about as much sense to me as packing a laptop.
I need a place to sit while using my laptop.

I used to think it was silly to take a chair, since most of the time I'm at a campsite that has picnic tables, but I found after several days, I really wanted to kick back in a chair, something with some back support. Picnic tables just aren't made for relaxing in.

I haven't settled on a chair yet though, I want something with a high back and headrest. Of course it also has to pack down to nothing and be light weight.

You don't want much, do you?

And an extended foot rest, too, no? You don't want to have to be packing an ottoman in addition to the chair.

Every time I lean back, I fall over.
