3 Signs You Need to Upgrade Your Camp Chair

If you’re going to enjoy your time sitting around the campfire, you might as well be comfortable

The venerable folding camp chair has been around long enough to spin off some noteworthy updates. If you are searching for the ultimate in woodland comfort, take a look at these contemporary features and ask whether your portable camp furnishings meet the same standard.

Drink Friendly

Have more than three drinks? This is the product for you. Coleman


No longer must you choose between grabbing a drink from the cooler or planting our backside on it. That’s right, when the bunkhouse fridge is just too far away, you can provision yourself (and others) for the long haul by squirreling away frosty beverages in your chair’s built-in cooler.

Comfy Padding

Made of steel and sturdy polyester, this seat won’t let you down. ALPS Mountaineering


The lightweight fabric of everyday camp chairs is vulnerable to UV deterioration and stress after just a couple of seasons of hard use. If you don’t mind a little extra bulk, make your investment last with an overbuilt version of this campsite fixture.

Still Collapsible

Despite having a smooth motion, this product has EAZY-FOLD technology to become flat. GCI Outdoor


You absolutely rock everywhere else, so why not around the campfire? A next-level portable chair not only folds for easy transport, it has built-in shock absorption to help you settle in after a morning turkey hunt, or while catching the big game on TV after the other big game is in hanging on the meat pole.
