Best Rated Low Camping Chairs

Low Camping Chairs top picture.

Here you have my selection of best rated low camping chairs in a variety of styles, for solo use but also some wider options.

Perhaps you have noticed that some brands build camping chairs in standard and low seat variants. This is typical for Kelty and Mountain Summit Gear. But some brands simply make low-seat chairs for shorter users.

Such chairs are available for solo use, but you can have them as double-wide, and also as chairs for three people or more. The list below includes all these examples.

Note that this is not about beach chairs, those are built specifically to enjoy on a beach and come with some corresponding features. The chairs presented here are true camping chairs.

My selection of the best low-seat camping chairs

The chairs in the list are ordered by seat height from lower to higher:

1. Helinox Chair Zero Highback

Helinox Chair Zero Highback.
Helinox Chair Zero Highback.

This chair is here because of its seat that is only 8.5 inches (22 cm) above ground.

But the chair is ultralight and with a high backrest with a headrest as you see from the picture. It weighs only 1 lb 8 oz (680 g), so it can be carried on the trail as well.

It is also very compact with its packed size (L x D) 16 x 5 inches (41 x 13 cm). With all this it is backpack portable and it is also in my list of best ultralight backpacking chairs.

The weight capacity is 265 lb (120 kg). You will want to know that it comes with their incredible 5-year warranty.

This chair is added here on purpose, for people who want a camping low-seat chair but without armrests. It may be convenient to have such a chair if you plat some musical instrument, or if you sit when cooking.

So the seat is only 9 inches (23 cm) above ground. The chair is folding, very easy to use, built from recycled materials and very affordable. You have a durable powder-coated steel frame.

Note that it has two U-shaped tubes, so the legs are two bars and with such a design the chair will rarely sink in any ground. The weight is 8 lb 3 oz (3.7 kg).

The REI Co-op Outward Low Padded Lawn Chair is a folding chair with an aluminum frame and wooden armrests. As you realize from the picture, it has lots of padding. But it is here because of its low seat which is 11 inches (28 cm) above ground.

It is very easy to use, and it is equipped with backpack-style carry straps, so you can transport it even on a bicycle.

The price is fair, and the chair weighs 7 lb 7 oz (3.37 kg). The capacity is 250 lb (113 kg).

Final thoughts

So this was my selection of low camping chairs, you have them with soft and solid armrests, and without armrests as well.

Some are padded and some not, and all of them are with relatively steep backrest so you can use them as dining chairs in the camp.

This list will be updated whenever I find a chair with a low seat that is worth adding here. So bookmark this post and visit occasionally.

Many more options are available in the category Camping Chairs here in the site, so please have a look around if you need more.
