What type of a camping chair is this
Here you have a really beautifully designed collapsible chair that packs down to 39 x 12 x 7 inches (96 x 32 cm x 20 cm). So as you realize, it remains a bit bulky when packed but only one dimension is really large.
The chair is also with solid armrests which fold when you pack the chair. The armrests are around 20 inches (51 cm) long and 2.2 inches (5.6 cm) wide so the support they give is optimal. There are clips on the rear side which should be released when you want to fold the chair, see one of them in the picture:
The back section from the seat is 28 inches (71 cm) high, so this is enough to have the headrest mentioned above. This is why I have included it in my list of camping chairs with a headrest.
One of the most important features here is its lumbar support. So here you have one of those with an adjustable design based on a strap with buckles on both sides, see the picture.
They write this is a patented feature. When you are sitting on the chair, you simply pull the strap on both sides and release or tighten the strap to create the best lumbar curvature for your body profile. This is convenient if several family members with different body sizes use this chair.
Perhaps you might want to know that there is yet another type of such chairs on the market with a frame-integrated lumbar design, see for example this Strongback Elite chair as the best possible example.
Who is it for
Weight-wise, with its 14.3 lb (6.5 kg) the chair is a bit heavy but this is still normal for its dimensions and features. You will see how it compares with some other chairs, there is a comparison table below.
Capacity-wise, with the 331 lb (150 kg) capacity, this is a moderately strong chair. There are much stronger items on the market and you can see some here.
Size-wise, with the dimensions of 25 x 19.5 x 41 inches (64 x 50 x 104 cm), this is not a particularly big chair but its dimensions are not bad. You will see it side by side with some of its competitors below. Note that the seat is at 19 inches (48 cm) above the ground at the front, so this is a medium value, not particularly high.
Materials & construction
The frame is a steel but the armrests are a combination of an aluminum alloy and plastic. Note that there is no padding on the armrests. The fabric looks a very durable and sturdy polyester and the same material is its carry bag.
The plastic feet are large and this chair will not sink easily in the ground. The chair has been on the market for many years, and I have seen some users complaining about rusted screws.
Can it be used in a large family camping tent? The answer is yes, definitely. This is a floor-friendly design and you can use it in a tent and also at home.
Note that you have storage elements on both sides, one cup holder and a small pouch for glasses, phone or anything of that size, both built from the same strong fabric as the rest of the chair, see one set in the picture:
In addition, you also have a zippered pocket on the top where you fold and pack the carry bag when it is not in use, or you can put any piece of your clothing here. With this, you create a pleasant pillow as a headrest.

Good and less good features
Here is my short summary:
- Quality craftsmanship.
- Multiple support elements.
- Storage elements.
- Nice carry bag.
- Poor description.
I mentioned a poor description. Actually, as of the moment of writing this text, if you check on Amazon, there is no description at all. Very surprising indeed. One would assume that they want to sell their chair if they put it on Amazon. Some description can only help this.
The price & rating
As of the moment of writing this text, the Amazon price for this chair is quite high, $140. So this is more than what you would pay for its competitors, but this is a great chair if you can afford it.
There are 9 reports by customers and the average rating is 4.3/5. See how I rate it for all the usual parameters used for other chairs here in the site:

OzTent King Kokoda Chair vs Competitors
It might be useful to see how this chair compares with two other top-notch chairs with the same adjustable lumbar support. Note that all have armrests as well, but those two have soft armrests. As you see it is a bit heavier and there are differences in the dimensions as well. But there are big differences in prices, so please follow the links for updates.

In the summary of this OzTent King Kokoda Chair review I wish to stress its great design and quite a number of very useful features like the storage elements and all those support structures. This is an ergonomic design so yes it is pricey but this is about comfort and health. If you can afford it, this is a very good chair.
But see also their smaller chair the OzTent Goanna with a similar design and the OzTent Gecko Camping Chair with Lumbar Support and Swivel Table. Yet another great option is Jet Tent Pilot DX Camping Chair with Lumbar Support which has more adjustability options.
Note that there is also a cot from this brand presented here in the site, the OzTent Gecko Camping Cot just in case you need one for camping.
Note that this is NOT a sponsored post, I am not paid by the brand or related to them in any way. I am only expressing my own unbiased view of this product.
