The Best Camping Chairs
We rounded up a list of the top camping chairs on the market and subjected them to rigorous rounds of resting, sitting, leaning and lounging. We recruited multiple testers to take these chairs with them on camping trips in Arizona, Utah, Colorado and California. They meticulously unfolded, repacked, stowed, and sat in each one. We scored each product on the metrics of comfort, craftsmanship, features, versatility and ease of use. All of these chairs still lead the market in quality camp comfort.
Our declared winner was the sturdy and durable Strongback Elite. This chair actually provides lumbar support, making it the reigning champ in the comfort contest. Other models come with extra features. The Eureka Curvy Chair comes with a side table and the Basecamp chair has an insulated pocket where you can store up to three cold drinks. A couple of the chairs come with sturdy (non-sling) arms, a comfort feature that we appreciated.
