I ordered these chairs because my father wanted "camping chairs" for their motorhome outings. Well...they FAR exceed any camping chair I have ever used! But if you want something lightweight, these are not for you. They only fold up, they don't collapse in for easy camping-style transport. I had sat in one owned by a friend and knew that my parents would benefit from the zero gravity aspect which relieves virtually all pressure from the primary joints and helps you to truly relax. In fact, even though they were a Christmas present, when they arrived at my house, I couldn't resist opening one of them and using it myself for a couple days until I had to give it away. :-) Christmas afternoon found my father napping in his new chair in the living room. He has a bad back and the chair gave him much needed relief. Love them!
