Yes but post #99 wanted to know if there was anything new in the last two years.

Nobody answered "No" yet.

Takes a bit of getting used to, and is close to the ground, also it will sink into soft or wet ground but a good option.
There is also a more expensive 4-point version that weighs in at ~2lbs called the Mantis:

Weight-5 lbs. 9 oz.
Material-Polyester/nylon mesh
Construction-Steel/aluminum
Folded dimensions-8 x 28 inches
Unfolded dimensions-25 x 23 x 22 inches
Capacity-250 pounds
I bought one yesterday. Haven't tried it in combat conditions yet, but it was comfy in the store. Folds up pretty compactly. It's low to the ground, so if you're 6'2" and inflexible it can be a little difficult to pop right out of it. After a few beverages the best technique is to fall over sideways and climb to your feet (or crawl to your sleeping bag).

The BigAgnes.com web site seems royally confused about this chair - it appears in some menus, but clicking brings up other items or nothing at all. Google yielded a direct link that works:

Kermit Kudos...

FWIW, my 5-year-old Kermit chair, which has camped with me at least twice a month during the time I've had it, had a screw to shear off in one of the wooden side pieces that hold the seat bottom during a 45-day canoe trip I recently completed. Probably a defect in the screw.

I sent the chair to Kermit on a Monday and it was repaired free of charge and returned to me in a new carrying bag on Thursday! Should be good to go another 5 years now.

Very pleased with the product and customer service!

I have no first hand experience with this one, but from my experience with the alite I would say this would suffer soft surfaces much like the alite (sand, mud, loose-pack soil... ) "pucks" for the feet would be a nice addition!

It packs down into a compact little bundle.

those extra feet would ruin the Monarch for me - the best thing about it is selecting whatever angle of recline you want, and being able to gently rock back and forth with just a slight roll of the heel.

Soothing.

I have a kermit and a pico, I use the kermit for long trips and the pico when im not over packed, the pico is defenitly more comfy. I noticed a crack in the brace on the pico, called them up, emailed a photo and they put a new one in the mail, (my pico is 7 yr old, no recipt, not even sure where I bought it). great service for sure.

small comfortable durable

We just bought the Heliniox by Big Agnus, only available on their website. https://www.bigagnes.com/Products/De...y/HelinoxChair
It weighs two pounds, holds 320lbs, packs the size of a football, and is a full chair. Used it a few times so far, we love it. It is 14"x4"x5". Pricey, but worth it.

I'll be honest, that sure does not look like it will take 320lbs
