A chair for an old man.

There's no way that thing is comfy to sit on. The best types of camp chairs are those that allow you to sit back and stretch out/relax. That thing isn't going to achieve any level of comfort that would make you want to chill out on it.

I agree on all the points, but all the points you mentioned were addressed/mentioned on the video (maybe the frame potential not so much). The makers say they've designed the chair for more general use and not just for hiking.
In that case if not for carrying hiking, what's the point of making a stripped down lightweight, sub par chair out of expensive materials?
Seems a complete white elephant to me. 🤷

Comfort. You might be surprised.
We have a couple of African carved wooden chairs made on the same design - they don't look at all comfortable - but they are.
They support the back very nicely - particularly in a good position for reading. Better than a standard upright western chair.

Yeah i dunno. It's narrow hard carbon fiber. Posture is maybe good but my arse will be numb soon enough

A chair zero is about 500g it's the lightest chair I've seen bar the ones that use pads.
Yeah…

But I love bringing my chair on all but my most grueling hikes, and those get fewer and farther between these days as I move on from 70 to 71.

After 16 kms of meandering with some elevation it’s nice to be able to sit off the ground leaning back a bit with my feet on one stump and my cuppa on another. Worth the grams at this point in my hiking career.
