CRAZY CREEK BACKPACKER LITE AIR CAMP CHAIR
This camp chair left a trail of happy testers from Colorado to Oregon. Credit an integral air-filled cushion that’s easy to inflate with a couple of breaths and that’s super convenient–no need to wrestle a pad into place. And with the press of a button, you can adjust air pressure for custom comfort. We experienced no puncture problems, as the inner polyurethane pad is protected by a durable 210-denier ripstop nylon shell. It comes with a carrying handle, stuff sack, and repair kit. Deflated and rolled up it’s about the size of your forearm. (For reviews of two more portable chairs–one for bad backs and one that’s the ultimate napper–go to backpacker.com/campchair.) $52; 1 lb. 4 oz. (800) 331-0304; crazycreek.com.
