We took a pair of these chairs to the Telluride Bluegrass festival last weekend and found them to be surprisingly comfortable during several days of music. The cushions did flatten a bit during extended sitting, but rebounded between uses. They were definitely more comfortable than our time-tested Crazy Creek folding chairs, though they may be a bit narrow for users on the heavy side.
That said, there were a few minor drawbacks. First, these chairs are quite a bit heavier and bulkier than our previous chairs, which adds to the hassle when carrying them a long way to and from a music festival or other event. Second, they're covered with various straps and flaps related to the built in shoulder straps for carrying them on your back. I preferred to use just the handle straps so the rest of the attachments just dangled and got in the way.
Overall, these chairs seemed to be well made and durable. I expect them to be pretty good chairs for all-around use.

Took this chair to a music festival and it was so easy to carry, very lightweight. It has a roomy pocket on the back and straps that allow you to carry it like a backpack. I was able to put stuff I bought in the pocket then when it was time to sit and listen to the music I had my chair. I also hope to use this as a seat in our canoe. It appears to be durable,but have only had it a few weeks so can't tell for sure yet

Sat through a 3 hour graduation ceremony at Red Rocks and this was a lifesaver! The padding was excellent and adjusted very easily. Love the backpack style straps, it freed up my hands to carry all the other things I needed. Highly recommend this chair.

This is a solid and comfortable cushion (and I have a bad back made worse by a recent car accident). It appears to be well made and should last a long time. Also of note is that it did not reek of chemicals the way some synthetic materials do right out of the package.
