Lightweight Director's Chair :-)

Post by Fanie on Fri May 10, 2013 1:42 pm

Hello all! :-)

I'm looking to buy a lightweight director's chair so I could use it while I'm going to gig using the subway/Bus. I still need something that would be quite sturdy enough for both adults and childrens. But I really need something lightweight so I don't injure myself while transporting it. Phew! :p

The one I currently have is one of thoses heavy ones you get at Pier Import. But I need something less heavy!

Thank you so much for your recommendations, my back and arms really appreciate it! Very Happy

I used to have an aluminum directors chair that weighed less than 3 pounds. It worked ok, but I didn't like the hole in the back and it didn't seem as sturdy as some of the heavier aluminum chairs.

I now have this one which is heavier, but still not too bad. If you ask me, the weight is worth it because it is so much sturdier.

This is my chair. It telescopes closed, and it has a closed back, so small children do not fall through. It is light. I love it!
I do not remember whether I bought it at ebay.com, or at amazon.com

This is mine. The description says it holds 396lb, and I believe it! The first time I broke it out to use, a lady literally had to SQUEEZE into it to get painted. I was so worried my new chair would collapse, but except for the canvas seat was a little streatched, it held up! I also didn't find the back gap too annoying; a few 2-3 year olds had been on it and they would just sit as if they were on a backless stool. In fact, because of the big gap I was able to carry it on my shoulder and free up my hands (I don't have a fatmax yet). As Whittney's chair 1.0, it's probably not the most sturdy, especially if placed on uneven grass. So I just hold on to the handle while the kids climb onto it.

Darn! Every place was out on the Earth heavy chair when I was desperately needing one, and now amazon has this??

Almost makes me want to buy it and save my current one for additional painters. Wait, on a second thought, I might bring it along to gigs and upsell it as the "VIP spectator seat" for watching me paint! Imagine, "FOR $1, YOU COULD FEEL HOW IT FEELS TO GET PAINTED... EXCEPT FOR ACTUALLY BEING PAINTED!!"

I've got an EZ Up director's chair (tall). It also has the hole in the back, but you can easily make a cover (or order one) so kids don't fall through it. This is the cover:


Looking at that earth director's chair though, it seems very practical! it even has a little table ... I'll look into it if they sell this in Europe

I love my easy up & got a stretchy body pillow cover (in leopard!) at Target ($9), cut the end off & slipped it over the back. Addedd shoelaces tacked on at the front & no wee ones can slip out! It is the sturdiest, lightest option I've found. Comes with a carry bag that takes the wear & tear off the chair itself as well!
