Backpacking chair ya or na?

I know this one is debatable but I’m looking for opinions on both sides. I’m ready to pull the trigger on a REI Flexlite chair. Seems a bit pricey? Plus the extra wt. I’m trying to lighten up my gear not add to the wt. Justifying it by looking at a lighter pack like the ULA Circuit. Of those that have one is it worth the extra pound?

Definitely if you are going to be out more than a day.  My hiking mentor made fun of me at first but for his 70th birthday I gave him a restricted gift at REI and now he is a convert. My chair is made by Helinox but REI makes a good one too.  It is the one luxury item that I pack.
