    and 320 lbs. sit in it and not break it.
    I love my Kermit Chair. It's even survived a Toga party 2 months ago.

    Did I mention that I'm 6'3 and 280?

    The PICO's are nice, I sat in one at Cabelas; but I could feel it "compress" when I relaxed. I'm not saying that it would hold me, but it's something about the plastic and metal mix.

    You might think that sticker shock of Kermit is a lot, but it really IS worth it...

    I have a Trek Ultra chair from Amazon that I sit in for a few hours every night. I love it (since I choose it over the sofa)

    Default motorcycle camping compact gear.

    I run a kelty Noah tarp and an OR bivy sack. Works great. My suggestion would be to look at backpacking setups and work from there. Less is so much more when riding as it saves fatigue on the bike, rider, etc.

    Recent trends in the adv bike aftermarket arena seem to be trying to solve problems and creating new ones in the process. Examples being huge roll cage type structures around the bike, multiple bags to fit in every orifice of the bike etc. unless you plan on being a double for the next Mad Max movie, you can skip this stuff.

    Simplify and reduce weight!
