- Bottle holder.
- Great price.
This Homcosan Portable Camping Chair belongs to the group of folding chairs, and this means it is without any assembly. So when you remove it from its included carry bag, it is ready to use, just unfold it in seconds. The carry bag (shown below) is with the dimensions (L x D) 37.4 x 6.7 inches (95 x 17 cm).
The chair is fully padded all over its seat and its backrest. You have padding also on its solid armrests. This is why I have included it in my list of best padded folding camping chairs.
Storage features: You have a set of removable storage pouches for small items to keep them close to hand and off the ground. There is also a bottle holder fixed to the side of the chair, see the picture below. When you pack the chair in the carry bag, these elements may remain in place.
The metal elements in this structure are stainless steel. You have X-crossed support bars on the front and on the back, this adds a lot to the chair’s stability. The side view below shows how the backrest looks, and some other details from the frame.
Observe also large feet, so this is a great detail because the chair will not easily sink in the soft ground. I am pretty sure you can use it without issues even in a floored family camping tent.
Note also that these feet are pivoting so they will adapt to the uneven ground underneath the chair.
The fabric is a double-layer 600D oxford polyester. The chair is currently available in three different colors. They claim that the padding inside is a 3 mm polyethylene foam.
Who is this Homcosan Portable Camping Chair for
Regarding the capacity, officially the chair is designed to support users of up to 330 lb (150 kg). This looks great to me and it should be enough for most potential users. But if you are still not convinced and think that you need more, please check my list of camping chairs for heavy people.
Regarding the size, the manufacturer describes it as large, but in my view the chair is moderate, you can see its main dimensions in the picture above. Note that the backrest is not high enough to provide a headrest. Check these chairs if you need such a feature.
In one of the pictures above you have seen that the backrest is quite steep. So the chair is not deep and you can use it for dining, it will fit nicely with a camping table.
Note that the seat is quite high, you have 18 inches (46 cm) from the ground. This together with the solid armrests makes it suitable for elderly users because getting in and out of the chair should be easy.
Regarding the weight, the chair is again moderate for such a type, it weighs 9.7 lb (4.4 kg). You have already seen its packed size, so clearly, this is a camping chair for places with a car access. Though the carry bag has a shoulder strap and you can definitely carry it shorter distances.
Regarding the price, this chair is a bargain. So it is not surprising that it became an Amazon bestseller very quickly after it appeared on the market. But the situation on the market changes all the time so it is best to follow the links and check.

In summary, this Homcosan Portable Camping Chair is popular for all the good reasons, and the price tag is surely one of them. It is padded, sturdy, needs no assembly, and it comes with a useful carry bag.
The capacity is very good but the dimensions are just average, bear this in mind if you are a really large person. Other than that, fully recommended.
