A good camping chair can be the icing on the cake to a camping trip. When you have a comfortable place to relax after a hike, or at night by the fire, it makes all of the difference in the world. That is why it is important to make sure that you’re getting the right chair. Here are some thing to keep in mind while your shopping.

What kind of camping are you doing, and where are you going?

It’s important to keep this in mind while shopping because there are all kinds of different chairs for different camping scenarios. For example, all camping chairs are portable, but not all chairs are portable to the point that you can take them backpacking. Your standard fabric chair with a metal frame is great for staying at a campsite, but far too cumbersome to carry around on your back.

Are there specific features you would like your chair to have?

Armrests and cupholders are very convenient, especially during mealtimes, and footrests can make your camping experience even more comfortable. Some chairs even have umbrellas built into them to shade out the sun. Don’t compromise on the features you want. If you decided you wanted certain features, you probably had your reasons. You don’t want to regret skipping out on certain features when you’re on your trip.

Prices for camping chairs will vary widely based on their materials and features.

As a guideline, you shouldn’t have to pay more than 35 dollars for a basic camping chair. As far as luxury chairs go, you could pay hundreds for a chair. It’s a good idea to set a budget and stick to it.
