So what this is about

From what I remember, this chair has been around at least since 2014, tried and tested by many users. This is a folding steel construction so there is no assembly, you simply open it in one move. The chair comes with several exceptional features described below.

Reclining positions

This is its stand-out feature, you have three different positions for the backrest shown in the picture below. There is a locking mechanism on the frame below the seat, with a slider that can move to its three positions:

Because of this design, I have added it to my list of best reclining camping chairs.

Armrests with insulated bottle holders

So you have soft and adjustable armrests. There are straps with buckles on the back and you can change the angle of the armrests, see the picture:

But this is not all, you also have dual beverage holders integrated into the armrests. Note that they are insulated and you have a movable divider inside each of them, so you can store a small or a large bottle:

Padded chair

The chair is fully padded, all over the seat and the backrest. You can see this in the pictures above. This is a quilted 600D polyester. So I have added it to my list of padded camping chairs, have a look if you want something different but with padding.

Excellent padded roll-tote storage

This is yet another great bonus, you will not find something similar on the market. Storing the chair inside is easy because you can unfold this roll-tote completely. You can also use it as a pad in the camp, to sit on it or to keep your stuff off the ground.

Who is this Kelty Deluxe Reclining Lounge Chair for

Weight-wise, with 10.15 lb (4.6 kg) of weight, this is a moderately-light chair for its strong steel construction with those X-shaped support bars on all the sides.

The packed size 39.5 x 9 x 9 inches (100 x 23 x 23 cm) is such that you definitely need a car for transportation. But you can carry it short distances, it comes with a great shoulder strap, you have seen it above.

Capacity-wise, the chair comes with the declared capacity of 325 lb (147 kg) and this should be good enough for most of the users.

Regarding the dimensions, note that the seat is 19 inches (48 cm) high on the front, so this is a moderately high chair. With soft armrests it may be a bit difficult for elderly users to get in and out, but there is a solid part on the front of each of the two armrests.

If you are not very tall, when you recline it into its lowest position you will have a headrest as well.
