Thanks for the replies. 

Since I'm now old and slow, sitting on the ground or a log or in crazycreek chair doesn't have the same appeal it did years ago.  I'm not interested in a stool since there is no backrest.  A hammock doesn't fit the bill since I'm looking for a chair I can easily set up and move around, use by the tent, cooking, etc.  My concern about the Alite butterfly chair is the same one raised by bogiesan, even though the internet reviews have generally been pretty good.   I don't have a local REI store so I can't test one out which makes me a bit leary.  The Slinglight  doesn't fold down as small as I would like, but I might be able to strap it to a trailer.  On the plus side, both the Alite and the Slinglight are light enough to justify carrying, but pricey.    Hard to find something that really fits the bill.

If I get one I'll give y'all a report.

I'm considering a toting a lightweight chair that has some back support and gets me off the ground on a tour next summer.  The two that seem to be the most promising are the Alite monarch  and the slinglight. Both are very light, but a bit pricey.  The monarch folds down pretty small, but the 2 leg design seems a bit unusual.  Anybody ever use either one of these or something comparable?  If you have used either one, how is the durability?

I signed up with ACA for the Great Divide trip in July.  I have a 12 mm thru axle, which rules out a bob and similar axle mounted trailers, so I'm looking for a seatpost mounted trailer.  Anybody use/have any experience with a farfarer trailer?
