Why people love it
  • Super comfortable folding chair
  • Fabric ventilates well
  • Easy to get in and out of

This compact folding chair was made for campers in need of a high performing and heavy duty chair. If solid construction, extra support, and excellent ventilation are your thing, look no further.

Many people complain about the cup holder being flimsy and cheaply made. Others label this chair as too heavy, but considering it was made for a heavy duty purpose, it’ll be hard to find something as durable and strong that isn’t this heavy (13 pounds).


Price: The $40 to $50 range seems to be indicative of a quality purchase when it comes to camping chairs. Anything less, and you’re going to compromise on quality. Anything more, and you’re looking at something with more bells and whistles. For a heavy duty chair, this is a great value.

Comfort: It’s extra supportive, great for keeping cool, and is easy to get in and out of. The manufacturer also claims that this chair can hold up to 300 pounds, and reviewers agree that this makes for a comfortable seat no matter how big or small the camper.

Setup: Some reviewers have noted that this chair is difficult to open and close. When it comes to heavier chairs, this is to be expected. Just be sure to read the reviews for tips on how to do this.

Portability: At 13 pounds, this is a bit on the heavier side of camping chairs, so hikers and anyone else planning on walking with their gear may want to consider a lighter option.

Durability: With a powder-coated steel frame, cooling mesh fabric, and a solid overall construction, this chair is the epitome of durable.
