Camping chairs

Lots of people come in to the store and ask “whats the most comfy camping chair”?”  Its an impossible question to answer and usually I just guide people to some that have sold well recently. Comfort is in the seat of the beholder, and it really is a matter of putting bums on seats and finding what suits you.

Things to consider are whether you need your chair lightweight, are you walking long  or short distances. Are you planning to use sitting at a table, or lounging around having drinks with friends.

 

If lightweight, look for aluminium. This may make the chair a little more expensive, but will be considerably lighter than a steel frame. Aluminium directors chairs are very popular, for those carrying them any distance, or who need a firm arm to help them get out of the chair. Directors chairs will fold flat, but are generally a little bulkier than a chair that goes in to a bag.

For sitting up at a table, you need a chair that will let you pull up close and support your back.. So again, directors styles or a flat folding style chair. Many flat folding chairs have adjustable backs, which make them perfect for resting or reading.

 

If you are a camping family and need a variety of chairs (and they all have to fit in the car), the most compact for this purpose are those chairs that fold back in to a bag. The heavier and bulkier of this style of chair will attest to its overall size, back height strength and padding. We find the more basic of these models are usually not that strong and have a much lower weight rating.
