I have been using this for two years and really like it.

It got terrible reviews on Amazon, mostly about perceived construction quality, stability, and flimsiness.  Does it just need screw tightening?

My current FOH-chair.

Extremly comfortable and compact. But not folding. Thinking about DIY-ing it into folding because I want to bring it everywhere with me. Can be disassembled with a screwdriver if needed.

Seems like a good option , considering the price is half of the Thomann.
Tough to beat the comfort of the drafting chair, and the fact it rolls,  but it is a pain to pack.

It looks fine that Gator frameworks guitar stool, although the Mey Chair Systems can be completely unmounted something that the Gator can't

The one I have is this:
https://www.amazon.com/Pacific-Deluxe-Folding-Director-Chair/dp/B004TY636I
More of a flat-bar construction than a round tubing.

When I lost it, I had to source the replacement elsewhere (some camping gear website that longer stocks it either), and it was twice the original price. I actually found the original and it's still going strong. It's pretty lightweight, so you would handle it with some element of care (read; don't let the green roadies handle it). Perhaps this one is better than amazon's current offering. It's all riveted together, so no screws to some loose. Flip side is that once it's loose, it can't be retightened. I haven't had that problem yet.
This actually looks like the same one I have:

My original was $69 about four years ago.

I've been using this one for the last couple years.

LINKY

It folds flat and is better than no chair. I usually run a ratchet strap around this and my pelican 1510. The chair is on the top of the 1510, so it functions as the pull handle when rolling the case around. This keeps my whole rig pretty compact and able to get to just about any gig.

Lots of choices if you don't need wheels.
I need wheels and height and a recline-able full-height back, so the only option seems to be the very expensive Cozy Roadie ATM...
