This is where the new Mayfly chair from Alite Designs comes in. It’s perfect for lounging at the campsite and reading a book or hanging out at the lakefront or on the beach. Offering an ultra-comfortable sling and a collapsible frame that sits low to the ground, the Mayfly is perfect for rocking and lounging. The Mayfly is portable and comfortable and weighs in a just 1.4 pounds. Forget the jumbo travel chairs with the over-the-shoulder carry cases.
