How to Choose a Camp Chair

If you are in the market for a new camp chair and haven't bought one in awhile or are a first time buyer, you may be surprised to see just how many ranges there are to choose from. Gone are the days where there is one style of folding chair for every occasion!

The many options allow us to really get into the specifics of our individual needs. Before choosing a chair consider these things...

  1. Where you will be using the chair the most (beach, on hot or cold days, in the backyard, camping?) and how often you'll use it
  2. How comfortable and convenient would you like it to be (extra padding, side table or integrated cooler?)
  3. Who will be using it (persons height or build?)
  4. Storage and transport (packability and weight?)

Once you have a rough idea in your head of how you'd like your chair to perform, it's time to go shopping! Here we take a closer look at our ranges to help narrow down which chair might be the right one for you.

Quad

Quad or Action Chairs are commonly known as a 'classic' camp chair. These folding chairs generally offer basic features, are quick and easy to set up and pack down and have a great balance of comfort and packability. Chairs like the Big Boy and Cooler prove to be top sellers.

RV Series

For the traveller who likes to spend months at a time on the road, the RV Series focuses on function, comfort and rugged construction. These chairs feature a heavy duty steel frame which makes them a slightly heavier to carry, but their high padded backrest creates a very comfortable seat. The weight capacity of the RV series ranges from 150kg to 200kg so if you are after a sturdy, strong chair these are for you.

Duralite Series

Duralite Chairs are not only comfortable, they are compact and easy to handle thanks to their frame. Each chair is constructed from magnesium alloy which is not only stronger than conventional aluminium alloys, it is up to 33% lighter. These are great chairs for those who are frequently on the move or storage space is tight.

Recliner/Lounge

Are you someone who likes to have an afternoon nap in their chair? A Lounge or Recliner might be the perfect chair for you. While both ranges provide the ultimate lazy chairs, there are a few small differences to keep in mind. Recliners tend to be lighter and feature a compact, fold flat design for easy storage while Sun Loungers have a heavier frame and tend to have a higher denier polyester. 

Directors

Strong, sturdy and gives you support when you need it, Directors Chairs are shorter in height, making them an ideal chair to have at the camp dining table. These chairs generally come with side tables and have a fold flat design.

Monsta/Moon

Big on size and fun, our range of Monsta and Moon Chairs are arguably the most comfortable camp chairs of all time. Whether you like to curl up around the camp fire with a loved one or prefer to stretch out alone, these oversized chairs are bound to leave fellow campers envious of your set up.
