Are you the type of camper that spends your days exploring before heading back to camp to the welcome relief of your chair, or do you spend lots of time kicking back with a beverage, watching the buzz of nature around you? The right camping chair for you is one that works well for your needs. We’ve listed some key features to look out for below.

  1. Comfort
  2. Your camping habits will determine how far up the list comfort needs to be when you’re shopping around. If you’re spending all day enjoying your surroundings on site, you might want to look at padded chairs. You also have to ensure that the chair offers proper support for your back and neck, whether you can recline the chair and whether you’d like armrests.

  3. Price
  4. Price is one of the top factors when weighing up your options. You’ll find camping chairs at all price points. If you’re looking for budget-friendly camping chairs, retailers like Decathlon, Argos, Regatta and Trail Outdoor Leisure are some of your best bets. Alternatively, if you want to invest in a deluxe camping chair, Helinox and Yeti sell a range of luxury camping chairs.

  5. Lightweight and foldable
  6. Camping chairs are brilliant if you’re limited on space. Adventurers who are always on the move might want to look for a lightweight camping chair that easily folds up and will fit neatly in or on your travel backpack. Camping chairs that are under two pounds in weight are perfect for backpackers and lightweight campers.

  7. Unique features
  8. Some camping chairs have unique features which are worth looking out for, with all brands trying to stand out from the crowd. Whether it's the ability to adjust your level of recline, sturdy drink holders or pockets to stash your essentials, these features can really upgrade your experience.
