Five Best Camp Chairs For More Rested Camping Days

Updated on November 3, 2010

A camping chair means a more comfortable camping trip. After a tiring day of walking, trekking, hiking, standing, or whatever you want to call it, your legs and feet just need to rest. Lay that aching back on a comfortable folding camping chair.

A good camping chair is designed to be mobile and compact; with a foldable frame but plenty of support. Along with your compact camping axe or camping air mattress, you can make the outdoors your domain.

You can actually use camping chairs anywhere or for anything. Aside from taking one camping, people love use them in the garden, for an afternoon in the park, on the beach or anywhere you want to relax your legs and body and savor the view and the fresh air. On camping trips you can easily fold one up, stuff it in the carry case, strap it to your backpack and go.

When shopping for a chair, look for one that is lighweight, has a durable frame, thick nylon canvas seating, sturdy balance, and of course comes with a warranty. If you love the outdoors, you'll find it more comfortable with a camping chair.

So, here are the best camping chairs I've either used or have researched.

This foldable chair weighs only about 13 pounds, has a sturdy powder-coated steel frame, and has a weight capacity of 800 pounds (!). Its mesh center is reinforced with 600D High Density fabric. Although its fabric seems to be thick, it is made to breathe. It also has two large hanging pockets on the sides which you can use for your books and glasses, and it also has a beverage holder on each arm rest. Campers, mountaineers, and beach goers prefer this chair because of its functionality and its compact foldable design. You can easily shove it inside your car’s trunk or sling it on the side of your backpack. And did I mention it can hold up to 800 pounds?

It has a powder coated aluminum frame and tough steel tubes and connectors. The cool reinforced mesh center has a 425 pound capacity so even a big guy can relax on this thing. Astoundingly this mobile chair only weigh around 10.5 pounds while being exceptionally sturdy. It is a bestseller among folding camp chairs because it is attractive, tough, has a wide padded seat, curved armrests, and pockets and cup holders on each armrest. When you have to fold it, it folds flat no problem. When you want to use it, it also quickly pops open with no need to straighten up those supports and joints. This chair is really great for camping, barbequeing out back, watching fireworks in the park, catching a sporting event or just sitting on your deck and enjoying the sunset.

    anyone who goes camping quite a lot knows that a folding chair is a necessity, but not just any folding chair will work. at least not for me that is. i need a comfortable, durable, high quality chair that is within a good price range. i was reading about the chairs above and they seem like they have good qualities, but no other chair that i've seen here lately stands out as much as the maxxdaddy chair. it's made by koolest products and it has yet to let me down. i've had it for about a year and i would recommend it to anyone out there. it's made so it will hold high amounts of weight if it needed to so anyone could use it. check it out if you want a great folding chair. i highly doubt it will let you down!!!
