What is the most comfortable Chair

I have not taken a chair back packing in over 25 years, but now that I am getting older and taking shorter trips:

What is the most comfortable camp chair?

Has any one tried both the old sling-light & the crazy creek version?

How do the weights compare?

What do you use?

What have you seen used?

What would you do if you did it over again?

Thanks NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here
