What type of the camping chair is this

This is a folding and collapsible type, one of those that remains large in one dimension only when packed. There is no assembly, you close it or set up in one move. It has an ergonomic and high back and it offers a very good support.

The chair collapses from four sides towards the center.

The chair is with very good solid and padded armrests. You have a cup holder on the side, its dimensions are roughly 3 inches across and 4 inches deep, and it can rotate to push it under the chair.

Note that the chair comes with a very useful stuff sack to carry short distances and to keep it clean when you store it at home.

Who is it for

Capacity-wise, the chair supports the weight of up to 300 lb (136 kg). This is good enough for most of the users. But if you need something with a much bigger capacity, please check this list where the chairs are ordered by the capacity.

Weight-wise, the chair is on the heavy side when you compare it with its competitors. It weighs 13 lb (5.9 kg) and this is partly due to its solid armrests.

Size-wise, the dimensions are good, the back is high, some 20 inches (51 cm) above the seat. But you do not have headrest here, if you need such a chair please check my list of chairs with headrests.

The seat is not particularly high, it is at 18.5 inches (47 cm) above the ground. This might be a bit low for very tall people, but with such armrests getting in and out of the chair is easy.

The packed size is what you might expect from such a type, 39 x 9.4 x 6.5 inches (99 x 24 x 17 cm), so you need a car for transportation.


Materials & construction

The frame is steel and the tubes are really thick and strong. The fabric is polyester with a breathable back material. Its feet are such that they will not sink easily regardless of where you use it. This is a floor-friendly design, see the picture, and you can use it even in a large floored family camping tent.

The feet are large and will not sink easily in any ground.

The carry bag is quite large and you can pack it easily, you realize this from the picture below:

The price & rating

The price on Amazon for this chair at the moment of writing this text is $55, and this looks quite typical and fair for such a type.

Note that there are more than 220 customers’ reports available and the average rating is exceptionally high 4.5/5. My own rating is lower, but I use several criteria and they are the same for all chairs in the site, for an easy comparison:
