I know Alite designed its Monarch chair for easy-carry, low-rise camping and festival comfort, but with back to school time upon us all the poor bastards who actually have to go back to school, I was thinking this might make a good addition to a dorm room or off campus a-party-ment too. It folds up all cylindrical and aerodynamic, and weighs just 18.4 ounces, so you could move, like, a hundred at once. And when everyone's sitting around on the floor passing the peace pipe, the Monarch can both maintain the camaraderie of the circle, plus provide its members' with peak lumbar support.

According to Alite, "If effortless portability made a baby with serious comfort, the result would be our Monarch Chair." Now I don't know if I like that talk of making a baby, but otherwise this sounds like a pretty nice place to sit to me. Weight capacity is 250 pounds and fabric is breathable to accommodate use in the heat or while gassy.
