What type of camping chair is this

This Kamp Rite Chair is a folding type, so it opens like an umbrella and when you want to fold it away, it reduces to 38 x 7 x 7 in (96 x 18 x 18 cm).

As mentioned above, you have soft armrests and also a footrest. The latter can be completely removed and what remains is a standard folding camp chair, see the picture below. You will see in the video below that the footrest is attached by a zipper and supported with two extra poles.

The backrest is supported by two poles that are equipped with sliders and connected to the back support bars, so the chair reclines. It does not become completely flat, but it goes to some 130 degrees or so.

The chair deck material is strong and it should not sag, have seen people asking about that.

Who is it for

Capacity-wise, the chair supports up to 300 lb (136 kg) and this is quite a typical number. So it is not for extremely heavy users.

Weight-wise and design-wise, with its 11 lb (5 kg) this is not a lightweight chair. The footrest is quite wide and some people may find it difficult to get out. The armrests help a bit for sure. If you find it difficult to get out, you can also unzip the footrest at least partly and then put the foot on the ground.

I already mentioned its packed size, so you can carry it short distances, but for transportation you will need a car.

Materials & construction

The frame is a powder-coated steel so from this aspect the chair should hold and work well within the indicated capacity.

The fabric is 600D polyester so this is quite typical for a camping chair. Probably the most problematic part is the zipper which connects the footrest fabric with the chair fabric, have seen some users complaining that it failed after some time.

The feet are with quite typical plastic caps, wide enough not to sink easily in the soft ground and a floor-friendly design.

Bonuses

The chair comes with two cup holders, one on each armrest, and on the right you also have storage pouches for books, newspapers, and small items, see the picture.

I already mentioned the carry bag, so just to know its size is good and packing the chair in it is easy.

The price & rating

As of the moment of writing this text, you can get this chair on Amazon-US for $38 only, so this is a really great price. Though I have noticed that its price on some EU Amazon stores is far different.

There are almost 60 customers’ reports on the Amazon-US and the average rating is 3.7/5. See how I rate for the same parameters and criteria applied to all chairs here in the site.

Kamp Rite Chair with Detachable Footrest vs Competitors

Assuming that there is no such a thing as a perfect camping chair (at least for everybody’s taste), it is always good to compare and see what some other models offer. So here I give this chair side by side with a chair from yet another great brand.

The design is similar but there are big differences in the dimensions and also in the prices, please follow the links for updates.

Final thoughts

To summarize this Kamp Rite Chair with Detachable Footrest review, as you have seen, this chair comes with a long list of great features and with a price tag which is hard to match. It is easy to use, and it is versatile in the sense that you can use it with and without the footrest.

This is a great chair but as usual there are complaints, most of the time this is about the zipper. So test it properly when it arrives and contact the seller in the case of problems, Kamp Rite is a reliable brand with many products on the market, and they do reply when you contact them. I have included it my list of Best Folding Camping Chairs With Footrest.
