Camping Chairs

We're looking for recommendations for camping chairs - foldable and light weight, but sturdy and comfortable.

What are your favourite chair brands/models?

Thanks,
Noel&Grace

I have been through a few inexpensive chairs in a bag and now trying out this style this year to see how they hold up. Dont weigh much and they fit the bathroom while on the road.

We have two Coleman chairs that we bought on Amazon. They are listed as "Coleman deck chair with table" price now is $57.63, but I don't think we paid that much. We don't have the swivel table model. Very happy with them, and others in our camping group have the same chairs.

We are using virtually the same (see the picture below) except, no side trays. So far so good!
Before, I tried a number of chairs in a bag and none of them lasted more than one season but this set is going strong!

For longer stays we also pack "zero gravity" chairs but, they are NOT light.

I've had chairs build like this in the past and they held up remarkably well. The little side tray is really handy also. My wife and I bought ours 1996 and while we don't have them any longer the couple we gave them to still uses them on a regular basis.

we have been using our Coleman heavyweight chairs for almost 6 years...and they are still going strong. we love them. they did come in a bag but the best part, to us, is the clip at the back that snaps them together plus they come with an attached carrying strap.

Classic Aluminum Framed Chairs

These chairs are light, weighing four lbs. They cost $29. Much lighter than the steel framed chairs. We carry them in the back of the Honda on a shelf.

I too like my classic webbed aluminum chairs. I have had back surgery and those canvas sling back chairs are comfortable for about five minutes. The nice thing about the classics is they're very lightweight, dry quickly and at night I shove them under the rear of the Scamp to keep the night dew off of them. Because they're aluminum, the asphalt doesn't chew off any powdercoating... because there isn't any. BTW: Wally World sells replacement webbing.

Well, it looks like it's between the Coleman or the Costco ones. They both seem very well built. We're gonna check them out.

Thanks all.

If you can get to one, Cableas has good ones. I just got a nice rocker for $64. It has 2 insulated can holders, & the back is high enough for me to lean my head on. My wife got one for $29. Pink camo! You can buy on line. Well made product.

To clarify, the pink on isn't a rocker. Smaller too.

I have one of the side arm table chairs by picnic time, very nice, I have had it for at least five years. But for real comfort forget small and light and go for a recliner, I have Cabelas but the LaFumas are supposed to be lighter. I don't care, it's worth the weight to have the comfort.
