Alite Mayfly Chair

Lugging around those cheap (both price and quality-wise) beach and quad folding chairs is a royal pain – they’re not only rather large but hefty as well. Alite’s Mayfly Chair is different in that it not only weighs a lot less – 1.4lbs – but also collapses to the format of a small umbrella for simple storage in a handbag or backpack. Otherwise, it sits low to the ground, assembles easily thanks to color-coded parts, and should handily outlast budget chairs (with an included lifetime warranty to back it up). Though we never said lightweight gear came cheap.
