The locking mechanism you will find on each of these chairs enables you to lean back with ease and without worry to your chair collapsing in on you. The dual lock system prevents sagging, so you won’t have to worry about this chair’s durability over time. It holds its own.

With its multiple pockets, this chair offers space for drinks, your phone, or anything else you need to put away. The fabric is made of rip stock polyester, a high grade fabric designed to hold its own.

When it comes to camping chairs, the price for this one is quite reasonable. As a university student, I am seriously considering this chair. It is well within my budget. Whether you are camping in Big Sur for the weekend or spending the afternoon with the kids on the beach, you can be sure this chair will be a reliable friend to you. In short, this is a solid chair.

Guide Gear Break-Up Country Oversized King Camp Chair

Specs at a Glance

Dimensions: 39.5 x 9.2 x 8 inches (100.3 x 23.4 x 20.3 cm)
Weight: 12.6 lbs (5.7 kg)
Weight capacity: 500 lbs (226.8 kg)
Fabric: polyester
Color: mossy oak

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

Most camping chairs are not able to hold a lot of weight, often maxing out at only 350 lbs or as little as 225 lbs. For many people, the standard camping chair does not go far enough. That is why this camping chair maxes out at 500 lbs, being able to hold just about anyone. If you want to throw a few young grand kids on this chair, you can bet this chair will do just fine. The biggest appeal of this chair is its weight capacity.

This chair only comes in one color right now. If you are trying to blend in from some ducks while sitting by the campfire or you do not care much for colors, then this chair has got you covered. You can also find plenty of pockets and cup holders for phones and drinks. Whether you are camping down by the stream or chilling on the beach, you can bet this chair is a versatile friend.

If you are on the smaller side, you can bet this chair will fit you. It is designed for people with more size, so it can doubtlessly fit the vast majority of people.

Do not take my word for it though. On Amazon, this chair averages 3.1 stars out of only 11 reviews. So why am I recommending this chair. On Google though, this chair averages over 4.7 stars out of over 100 reviews, making it a solid chair to consider. As time goes on though, you can expect more and more people to review this chair on Amazon.

Helinox Chair One

Specs at a Glance

Dimensions: 21.7 x 28.3 x 22.8 inches (55.1 x 71.9 x 57.9 cm)
Weight: 1.9 lbs (0.86 kg)
Weight capacity: 320 lbs (145.2 kg)
Fabric: polyester and nylon
Colors: black/blue, camo-camo, meadow green, rhubarb red, Swedish blue, west marine

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

This is probably the most lightweight camping chair you will find on the market today. If you have trouble picking up heavy objects, you will not have any trouble with this chair. I would like to say it is as light as a feather, but you get the idea. Its unique construction enables it to hold up to 320 lbs and still be lightweight. The weight and sizing will be sure to appeal to anyone. It is its biggest attraction. If you are backpacking, you can actually bring a chair with you that won’t slow you down. As a backpacker, I find that incredible. Too many chairs are just too heavy.

The two biggest downsides for this chair are that it does not have a cup holder and it is a bit pricey. When you buy a camping chair as lightweight as this one, you lose a bit of extras, like a cup holder. It gets in the way. At the same time though, the chair can be pricey for those of us who are on a budget. If you are a university student like me, then this chair is out of your range. If price is not an issue, then this chair is worth your consideration.

On Amazon, this chair averages 4.6 stars out of over 400 reviews. If you have a question or concern, you can bet there is an answer already listed. People of all shapes, creeds, and sizes have reviewed this chair and given their opinion. It is reassuring to say the least.

Coleman Portable Camping Quad Chair with 4-Can Cooler

Specs at a Glance

Folded dimensions: 37.5 x 6 x 6 inches (95.3 x 15.2 x 15.2 cm)
Seat area: 24 inches (61 cm)
Weight: 7.7 lbs (3.5 kg)
Weight capacity: 325 lbs (147.4 kg)
Fabric: polyester
Colors: black, blue, red, gray/black

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

The biggest appeal of this chair is its price. In previous articles, I have talked about the Coleman brand. If you are looking for inexpensive camping gear, then they are the way to go. They may not be the best on quality, but they cannot be beat on price. At a limbo on a cruise ship with the other brands, Coleman goes the lowest while maintaining quality. If you are on a budget like me, then this chair is quite appetizing. You can sit by the campfire without burning your wallet.

The chair can hold up to four different cans at the same time. It comes with multiple pockets to hold your phone, keys, bug spray, or anything else you will need for easy access. Its steel frame ensures longevity, providing you with plenty of joy in the years to come. If you are thinking that a lower price entails a lower quality, think again. Its quality comfort will surprise you. In this chair, you get an excellent deal.

Most of the chairs on this list do not have any back padding, but this chair does have it. You get some padding instead of free floating in the air with the mesh backed camping chairs. It is a chair built to last.

On Amazon, this chair averages 4.4 stars out of over 5,000 reviews, making it quite a well reviewed chair. You can bet someone with a similar situation to yours viewed and used this exact same chair. The customers just love this chair.

ALPS Mountaineering King Kong Chair

Specs at a Glance

Dimensions: 38 x 20 x 38 inches (96.5 x 50.8 x 96.5 cm)
Weight: 13 lbs (5.9 kg)
Weight capacity: 800 lbs (362.9 kg)
Fabric: 600D polyester fabric
Colors: deep sea, khaki, salsa

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

This camping chair is meant to hold a lot of weight. I mean a lot of weight, almost 800 lbs of weight. You can almost fit two elephants on this chair. Well maybe not, you could probably do a baby elephant. You get the idea. It holds a lot of weight. You can sit with ease on this chair knowing it won’t collapse in on you. It will hold up its weight.

One of the downsides is its weight. Compared to other chairs listed here, it is a bit heavy, but that is what you get when you get a chair designed to hold a sea lion. When it comes to chairs, it is a bit pricey, but that is part of the price increase.

The chair comes with not one, not two, but three pockets, one by each arm rest and then another hanging off the back. You can also find two cup holders for you and your significant other. This chair also comes with a limited lifetime warranty. If you run into any trouble down the road with this chair, you can bet ALPs will be there to help you out. The other brands do not offer a warranty to that extent.

On Amazon, this chair averages 4.6 stars out of over 1,100 reviews, making it quite a well-received chair. If someone had an awful experience, you can bet they wrote about it. You won’t find too many of those though. A lot of the experiences were positive, the vast majority in fact. People enjoy sitting down in it.

GCI Outdoor Freestyle Folding Rocker Chair

Specs at a Glance

Dimensions: 24 x 25 x 34.8 Inches (61 x 63.5 x 88.4 cm)
Weight: 12.1 lbs (5.5 kg)
Weight capacity: 250 lbs (113.4 kg)
Fabric: polyester
Colors: cinnamon, indigo blue

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

If you want to rock back and forth with ease, then this chair will give it to you. You don’t even have to lift a finger. The chair does all the work for you. The lightweight steel construction means the weight is minimized for easy carrying. A convenient carrying handle means you can have one hand free to carry anything else you might need to your campsite.

The biggest downside to this chair is its weight. Compared to the other chairs listed here, it is a bit heavy. At the same time though, it is not really a downside. That is part of the package with a self-rocking chair. You get what you pay for. Otherwise, the back support, pockets, cup holders, and comfort is all there. You can swing back and forth with ease in your heart.

You might be wondering how this chair rocks back and forth, but with none other than their GCI’s patent-pending Spring-Action Rocking Technology. It works like this. Through the genius of GCI’s engineers, you get a smooth back and forth motion. I do not know exactly how it works, but the customers enjoy it.

On Amazon out of almost 800 reviews, this chair averages 4.7 stars. In other words, people really like this chair. You will not find too many products with that high a rating and that many reviews. In a word, incredible, you can rest easy at night knowing your money was well spent or just rock back and forth in this chair while you play a tune on the harmonica by the campfire.

Coleman Portable Deck Chair with Side Table

Specs at a Glance

Dimensions: 31.2 x 21.1 x 8.5 inches (79.2 x 53.6 x 21.6 cm)
Weight: 7.1 lbs (3.2 kg)
Weight capacity: 225 lbs (102.1 kg)
Fabric: weather resistant polyester

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

This here is another great chair from Coleman at a bargain of a price. The side table offers you the option to put down your plate and food for you to go on and do something else if need be. The campfire becomes more like a place to gather around and eat. You won’t really find much of a table when sitting around a campfire. Fortunately with this chair though, you do not even have to get out of your chair to find a table. It is right next to you.

When it comes to camping chairs, this one is a bit heavy, but not so much so. At the same time though, Coleman more than makes up for it with their stellar price. It is a solid bargain. Another drawback is its weight. It won’t handle the heaviest people and people who are above average. It will, for example, just handle my Dad. A few too many cheeseburgers and he would not even fit. Do you get what I am saying? It could hold the vast majority of people, but not everyone.

Whether you are at a barbecue, picnic, camping adventure, or just in your backyard, this chair will be sure to take care of you no matter where you are at.

On Amazon, this chair averages 4.5 stars out of over 900 reviews, making it another well-received chair from Coleman. You can rest easy at night knowing so many other people sat in and found this chair to be a joy to sit in. It is, in short, reassuring to say the least.

Trekology YIZI Portable Camping Chair


Specs at a Glance

Dimensions: 11 x 4.3 x 6 inches (36 x 11 x 15 cm)
Weight: 2.4 lbs (1.1 kg)
Weight capacity: 300 lbs (135 kg)
Fabric: 600D polyester
Colors: black, blue, green, red
Adjustable seat heights: 25, 26, 27 inches (64, 66, 68 cm)

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

One of the features I really like about this chair is its flexibility. You can adjust the height to the level you want. If you want to slink back, you can do it. If you want to be higher up, the options exists. It does not matter your particular preference. You have flexibility. Compared to the Helinox Chair One, this one comes with side pockets, a drink holder, and adjustable height all at a lower price. Woah! That is a solid competitor. It is not as lightweight as the Helinox, but a half pound is only a small difference.

Whether you are backpacking for days on end or just chilling by the campfire at night, you can rest easy with a warm cup of cocoa in your hand. This chair folds up to a nice, small size for easy portability. The mesh backing enables plenty of airflow in case you sweat a lot. If you are worried about the poles holding up this chair, don’t. The poles are made of high strength aluminum alloys, the same stuff as used by aircraft manufacturers.

If you are a lazy camper (like me), then you want your gear to do all the work for you. This chair sets up in seconds, not minutes, but in under 10 seconds or so. You just pull it out of the bag and whip the chair into action. Then you are ready to sit down.

On Amazon, this chair averages 4.4 stars out of over 500 reviews. You can rest easy at night when that many customers have reviewed and given their two cents about a product.

Helinox Sunset Chair

Specs at a Glance

Dimensions: 23.2 x 28.7 x 38.6 in (58.9 x 72.9 x 98 cm)
Weight: 3.3 lbs (1.5 kg)
Weight capacity: 320 lbs (145.2 kg)
Fabric: 600D polyester fabric
Colors: black, black mesh, meadow green, rhubarb red

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

If you have a long torso and want to rest your head on a nice cushion, then this helinox chair has got you covered. The nylon construction means the fabric is lightweight and last long. If you want plenty of back support, then this chair is the way to go. Whether you are chilling at the park’s picnic area or kicking back with some friends by the campfire, this chair handles just about any need for relaxation. The head extension is quite appealing. Most chairs do not offer that. It is a good option to have.

The biggest appeal of this chair is that it is lightweight and compact. If you are part of a big family, the number and weight of camping chairs can add up fast. If you have a handful of Helinox camping chairs though, then the load is a lot lighter. Less weight means for less stress. And when you are camping, that is what you want, little to no stress. In nature, you are supposed to relax and unwind. You should not have to deal with a chair that cannot hold its own. You should have deal with as little worry as possible. These chairs bring stress relief to the table.

With this chair, you can kick back and enjoy a sweet, ice-cold lemonade like a champ. Can you just imagine sipping one of those on a hot summer day while you watch the sunset over the horizon? It sounds just magical come to think of it.

On Amazon, this chair averages 4.6 stars out of over 130 reviews. It is not the highest number of reviews but is a reassuring number. It does not cover everyone, but you can expect the number of reviews to go up over time as more people try out this chair.

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

What separates this chair from others listed here is its fabric. Most of the fabric from competitors is oxford, but this chair’s fabric is rip stop CORDURA nylon, a high grade fabric which offers durability and resilience even after many uses. Not only does it offer that, but it also brings a substantial bargain to the table. Compared to most others on the market, this is well under $50, appealing to me even though I am a university student. It is a bargain of a price for what you are getting.

When I go camping, I want little to no stress. This chair takes under a minute to assemble. For me, that is a strong appeal. After a long day of hiking, you do not want to be stressed out, you want to take it easy. This chair brings relaxation and comfort to the table.

If you sweat a lot or just sweated because you exercised, do not worry. This chair comes with a breathable mesh to let out any fumes you might be holding onto you. Whether you are by the lakeside enjoying the kayakers next to sunset or kicking back around the campfire with friends, you can rest easy with this chair at your back.

On Amazon, this chair averages 4.4 stars out of over 175 reviews. It is not as high as others listed here, but it more than makes up for the difference with its price.

Weight capacity: 300 lbs (136.1 kg)
Fabric: 600D polyester
Colors: khaki, rust

Why Should You Consider this Chair?

This chair is sturdy. It is durable and will hold its own in the most trying of circumstances. The pro-tech powder-coated steel frame ensures you will be sitting in this chair for a long time to come. This chair is heavy-duty. You can be sure it will last you for years to come.

One of the drawbacks to this chair is its weight. You won’t be bringing it along with you on a backpacking trip. It is too heavy for that. It is best used on a camping trip or an afternoon picnic with the family, someplace where you just sit for a while and enjoy yourself. In exchange for weight though, you get longevity and durability, something solid which will last you a long time. Not many other chairs can say the same. The thick fabric ensures longevity and protects against rips and tears. It is almost canvas-like but better in feel.

If you need to grab a drink, you do not need to worry because this chair has a cup holder. You do not have to run all the way to the table to grab your soda. You only to need to reach your right arm down to grab your drink.

If you have doubts about what I say here, you cannot doubt the words of over 200 real people who bought this chair. You can rest easy at night when you have that much information to sift through.

The wicking mesh prevents any sweat from piling up and enables the release of heat. Another important feature of this chair is its adjustable cup holder. You can lower or raise it up to the size you want. One of the drawbacks of this chair is that it sags if you are on the taller side (>6’2″). It will be a bit of a problem.

  1. Alex, great selection of camping chairs. I like the lightweight ones, under 3 pounds. You have several to choose from, they would be great for backpacking.

    John

    1. I appreciate the compliment. You are right about those really lightweight ones, the ones under three pounds.

      Thank you for sharing John and I hope you make it a great day!

  2. I am loving the look of that Helinox Sunset chair. The high back and headrest really appeals to me, especially when sitting at outdoor concerts in summer.

    Last summer I grabbed two chairs from a local tire warehouse-type store. They sucked. Alot. The cross bar at the front of the seat feels like it is exactly the wrong place.

    I have been watching Youtube videos on bushcraft camping and the lightweight chair-in-a-bag chairs are pretty popular with the crowds that do a lot of hiking in to camp spots. So I am happy to have found this post with reviews of nice variety of them. Thank you!

    1. It is good to hear you are liking the look of the Helinox sunset chair. You will be sure to enjoy sitting in it too.

      I could not agree with you more on the cross bar. It can be quite a pain in the back.

      It is good to hear you are watching YouTube videos about bushcraft camping. They sound interesting. Chairs in a bag are quite helpful if you head deep into the bush.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  3. Nice article and great selection Alex, might have to make a few purchases. The lightweight options are always better in my opinion. Love the Coleman Deck Chair!! Keep it up.

    1. I appreciate the compliment Marvin. Lightweight camping chairs always make it easier on the back and body. It is good to know you are interested in the Coleman Deck Chair. It is an inexpensive, high quality option if you are on a budget.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  4. Hey Alex,

    This is a really thorough overview about camping chairs. Honestly, I didn’t know that there is such a big selection in style and shape.

    I prefer camping chairs that are lightweight, mainly because I like to go to the beach in summer and don’t like to carry heavy gear through the sand. I also like for a chair to be easy to fold. A cupholder that comes with the chair would be nice, but a side table is not my priority. And by the way, I find that the chairs with sidetables are usually used by the biggest beer drinkers … just kidding.

    Andrea

    1. I appreciate the compliment on my article. It is kind of you to say. There is more variety to the eye as it were.

      I could not agree with you more that a camping chair needs to be lightweight. You do not want to throw out your back. For me at least, cupholders are a must. I want a drink holder for my beer Andrea :). A sidetable is a bit too much for me, but I think I will give in with age.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  5. Awesome article, so many great camping chairs to choose from. I really like the Coleman Deck Chair (I am all about the armrests! Can you do a review of camping chairs for kids, just this weekend we had a Christmas bonfire and my 3 year old daughter was ticked because her chair didn’t have a cup holder! lol

    1. I appreciate the compliment Jason. I always strive for perfection in my articles (sometimes to my detriment, but I do my best :)). It is good to hear you like the Coleman Deck Chair. I am fancying it myself.

      I will consider your suggestion. Until I end up writing an article about children’s camping chairs though, I urge you to consider the Kids REI Co-op camp chair. It does not have many reviews right now (only 17), but they have all been stellar. The chair averages 4.8 stars. It is inexpensive, lightweight (4 lbs), and even fits short adults.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  6. Hi Alex,

    Fantastic product review website, I know more about camp chairs than I care to know! LOL! So it looks like you really already know what your doing here, your review paragraphs are maybe a little lengthy but offer some great insight on the product.

    Your media is vibrant, and inviting, real candy for the eye. By the way, did you take those pictures, get them off of a website, or how did you come by them? In any event the media breaks up the page very nicely and gives off a real vibe of professionalism.

    Finally, the website overall is easy to navigate, I really appreciate the simplicity of you design! But, I have to say that your appeal at the end of your piece almost gave the impression that you were a little desperate to get a purchase. I’m wondering if this is something that you added or if it is a WA requirement to announce that you are receiving a commission from an affiliate site. I felt that this exchange you had about being a brother subtracted from the professionalism just a small bit.

    This doesn’t look like it is your first Rodeo, you have five other posts so your definitely not a newbie! Good Luck to you Alex both in school and in Business and have a Super Duper Day!

    1. I am glad to hear you enjoy the site. It always a wonderful compliment to hear from my readers.

      When it comes to the pictures, I often do not take them myself. I find them for free online at sites like Pixabay. I am glad to know you find this site easy to navigate. That is reassuring. For all affiliate sites like this one, you have to announce and make explicit you will receive commissions from a link someone clicks on.

      Thank you so much and I hope you make it a great day!

  7. Now next time I go camping I know exactly what website to come to! Next time I’m camping I’ll for sure be here because who doesn’t need folding chairs? This is amazing.

    1. I am glad to hear you have enjoyed the site Jamaar. You are sure to find out everything you need to know here.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  8. Wow! You have really provided a lot of options for light weight camping chairs with detailed information about each one. I really love this site. Your articles are easy to read and give all the information you need to know about a product.

    I’m very interested in the Trekology YIZI Portable camping chair. Only 2.4 pounds and adjustable height…. The weight capacity is outstanding as well for such a light weight chair. It even comes in 2 of my favorite colors; red and blue. With so many good reviews on it, I’m not worried one bit about getting a good chair with this one.

    Is there a way to hook it to the outside of a backpack so that it doesn’t take up space? You may have included that information, but I didn’t see it mentioned.

    Thanks so much for providing this honest review on camping chairs. It makes it much easier for me to decide on one.

    Best wishes,
    Devara

    1. It is good to know you enjoy the site Devara.

      The Trekology YIZI Portable camping chair is a good one to consider. It has plenty of positive of reviews to read and search through.

      I appreciate your question. The chair comes in a small zippered storage container (as pictured below the seat) with a small loop attached to it. You can fit a carbiner through the loop without any problem and attach it to your backpack.

      Thank you so much and I hope you make it a great day!

  9. After I read your article I’m interested in the KingCamp Low Sling Beach Camping Folding Chair. It looks very comfortable and I think I can use it not just only for camping but for my girls soccer games. Do you recommend me another one instead of this or am I making a good decision to choose this one?

    Thank you for sharing this great list of camping chairs.

    1. I am glad to hear you enjoyed this article GVporras. You are making a solid choice. It is sure to be quite comfortable.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  10. Dear Alex,

    To be very honest with you, I’m in a kind of information overload with the in-depth research you have come up with here on the Lightweight Folding Camping Chairs. However, I have to congratulate you on this “Great Article”. 

    In our Church once in a month we go camping with our youth team. Often we used to think if there is a chair it will be great to relax and enjoy the sight. After reading your helpful post I got great insights and the wide range of options you provided is super helpful.

    1. I am glad to hear you enjoyed this article Paul. With every article I write, I aim to be as thorough as possible, covering all my bases and not missing anything. You and your church are sure to enjoy anyone of these chairs. 

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  11. Man have things come a long way in the lightweight folding camping chair world over the past few years! I remember as a kid just being happy to have a small flat top with some folding legs to use while camping. Not the best for comfort, but hey you’re camping right?

    These days, the new models and designs can provide you every bit the comfort that you have at home in the living room in front of the TV with traditional chairs! Things are definitely better. What attracts me also to all these new designs is that weight is not a factor. They are lightweight, durable, comfortable, and relatively inexpensive.

    Of all the chairs that you review, I have to say I likely will go with the Coleman brand. I have used their products since a kid (remember that cheap small flat-top stool I used to sit on while camping? That was from Coleman!). The quality is good enough that you get years of use at a decent price.

    The one that caught my eye but is too much for me is the ALPS Mountaineering King Kong Chair. The weight issue means it comes at a cost (carrying it around), but the durability and strength seem to be enough to handle any situation (or a 400 lb friend). I have a couple that comes in that size (friends, not chairs).

    Good review and I look forward to securing my replacement Coleman chairs prior to the start of our next camping season (I like to start early preparing, this way I can be ready once the winter breaks). You have helped me make some decisons today on what to buy.

    1. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the article Dave. Camping chairs have made a lot of strides in recent years. You are sure to sit in comfort without any problems.

      Coleman is a solid choice. They have been around for a while and know their way around the block. You can be sure to enjoy anyone of their chairs.

      The ALPS King Kong Chair is another excellent option. It can handle just about anyone.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  12. Nice selection of chairs, Alex. I have used the Kijaro Dual Lock Portable Camping and Sports Chair and like that the back is a breathable mesh fabric. It would be nice if the seat was made of the same material for those hot summer days and nights. 

    I have seen people using the deck chairs with the side table. I’ve had plenty of times while sitting around the campfire having a meal that the side table would definitely have come in handy.

    Although weight isn’t too important to me because I only use folding chairs while camping or at sporting events. I appreciate that you included the weight of each type folding camping chair.  

    1. It is good to know you enjoyed the article Randy. The Kijaro camping chair is a solid choice. You definitely want breathability after sweating all day outdoors.

      Side tables are always nice. They are excellent for tailgate parties and kickbacks, not just camping by itself.

      It is good to know weight is not too much of an issue for you. You have more options then.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  13. Hello Alex, your review of the camping chairs is awesome. It is a very comprehensive list. I really like the KingCamp Low Sling since it does not need any form of assembly and you mentioned it can fold in seconds.

    Regarding the Coleman Portable Deck Chair, it would be good also for the kids since they like to eat a variety of foods with lots of plates and drinks along with them. Thanks for the review. 

    1. I appreciate the compliment Francis. The KingCamp Low Sling is a solid choice. It folds right up in seconds.

      If you want to eat with a table by your side, the Coleman Portable Deck Chair is another splendid option. Kids are sure to put their food in the right place and out of harm’s way.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  14. They sure have come a long way with these folding chairs. They are great for camping and so much more. I really like the ones that have a cup holder, but the Coleman chair with the side table is pretty cool. I like how lightweight they are for carrying and moving around the campgrounds. Great for at night when toasting marshmallows around a campfire.  

    I really like the variety of chairs you have here, I was looking for the Coleman Portable Camping Quad Chair. But now I think I want the Kijaro Dual Lock Portable Camping and Sports Chair I really like the look of this one. I like the mesh backing and side pockets. Thanks.

    1. Hi there Alex & Ann. You are right that they have come a long way with folding chairs. You have plenty of options to choose from.

      The Kijaro Dual Lock Portable Camping and Sports Chair is an excellent choice. The mesh backing works quite well.

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

  15. Hello Alex,

    It is a pleasure to write in your post. Trust me, I liked all the chairs and I loved your review. I really feel the neccessity of the chairs as a person who always go for hiking whenever gets free time. After reading your review I am getting a bit confused that which chair I should not select. Of caurse, I cannot buy all of them. Come on man, you should have wrote about only one chair so that I could be able to select one. I am kidding!!! ;p

    Can you plz suggest me one or two types of those?

    Thinking to put two baby elephants on ‘ALPS Mountaineering King Kong Chair’. Hahaha… I have become a fan of your writing.

    Thank you so much for such a nice writing, Alex. 🙂

    1. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the article Radeet. It is okay if you are confused about which chair you should select. There are a lot to choose from. Very funny :). It would have been easier to write about one chair, but I don’t like to do that. 

      For you, I would recommend any of the Helinox chairs. They are top of the line. If you buy one of them, you will never have to get another camping chair in your life.

      I appreciate the compliment on the quality of my writing. It is quite kind of you to say so :). 

      Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!
