Editors' Choice 2008: Big Agnes Cyclone SL Chair Kit

Rest easy: Here are 6 ounces of pure lounge-lizard comfort

Never again do you have to choose between a heavy chair and a sore butt. The Cyclone weighs less than a New York City bagel and packs smaller than a three-piece fly rod. When coupled with an inflatable mattress, it becomes an instant backcountry recliner. It’s so supportive that one editor–who suffers from chronic low-back problems–now packs it on every trip. The secret: ultralight aluminum pole sections that provide support. $40; 6 oz.; (877) 554-8975; bigagnes.com.
