El cheapo Academy chair. Has arm rests, and when it’s nap time I can lean back pretty good. I may or may not have put a dove stool in a pop up as well to prop my feet up and get even more comfortable.

I use an office chair that I picked up at a surplus store for 10 bucks.

I fall in the average height category and the seats out of those plastic boats are perfect to me.

Can buy the bases then bolt on whatever boat seat you want

Millennium is the very best but it is speedy. Look at the Alps chairs or Bolderton chairs for ground blinds. They are good. I have to have one with short legs or I sit up way too high. You don’t want to have to hunch over to try to shoot your bow.

How important is having back support as opposed to the three leg stool?

Not at all. The bow stays to the front and the armrests are on the side. Chair swivels so they never interfere.

Absolutely, unless you have a very strong core or dont intend to sit very long...of course Im an old fat man with a bad back so Im a tad biased.

I'm gonna be honest. Every chair I've used has made some sort of noise or creak so I won't use one in a pop up if I'm bow hunting.

All I use now is a 5 gal bucket, flip it over and put small outdoor pillow on top.

Cabelas/ bass pro and academy all have a version of this chair. Extra wide. Quiet. No arm rests. Comfy. I found one for 20 bucks. I want these in all the blinds. You can have armrests on this one. But it’s very wide which makes it nice.

Flash Furniture XU-8700-BLK-B-VYL-30-GG Hercules Series High Density Black Vinyl Stack

This type work well style chair is what to show...You can find at GS/resale shops /Restaurant supply..I prob bought 10 never paid over 5 bucks each...They come with Plastic backs/steel /and upholstery ...I like plastic its quiet and comfy..
What makes them work well is the sled base on ground instead of 4 legs sticking in ground.and big roomy and HD 1000# rating...Stackable and not very heavy...

I hunt from the ground most of the time. If I am hunting one of my more regular spots, I will leave a good swivel chair in there so I don't have to carry it in and out with all of the other stuff I have to carry. For all other situations, I walk to my stand and carry a bucket with a silent padded swivel seat and no back that I put all of my stuff in(face paint, knife, flashlight, toilet paper, binos, water, gloves, headnet, rangefinder, insect repellent). This leaves me with one hand to carry the bucket, one to carry the flashlight, and weapon on a sling over the shoulder.

Millenium G100 is expensive, but worth every penny. Super comfortable, quiet, portable, durable and made to last. You won't have to buy cheaper seats more often, and you won't want a different chair anyway.
