Best Compact Camping Chairs

If you want an outdoor chair that packs small and takes no much space in the pack or in your car trunk, check this list with best compact camping chairs, all very light and easy to use.

A compact camping chair is not necessarily ultralight, so the weight is not my main focus here but clearly, it can be very important. If you need a chair to transport on a bicycle or a motorbike, then the packed size is essential and the weight is not. But if you need an outdoor chair to carry in the pack you will keep an eye on its weight as well.

But no worry, you have them for both worlds, ultralight chairs for the trail, and chairs that you would not carry yourself. Typically you have collapsible chairs here, and this means that they need a simple assembly. But you will see also some ingenious examples of compact folding camp chairs, this is a type with all the parts pre-attached to each other that need no assembly.

Note that there are no camping stools here. This is a separate group without a backrest and armrests. All the chairs in the list have a backrest and most of them also provide some sort of armrests. Most of them are built from aircraft-grade aluminum alloys so although they are light and thin they are very strong.

So here is my list of compact camping chairs ordered by the packed size from bulkier to more compact. I take their two (out of three) larger dimensions in the packed state and this is how they are ordered. In most cases, this is the length multiplied by the diameter of the carry bag because some of them are tube-shaped when packed.

Please have a look and follow the links for more data. These are all very popular outdoor chairs and you will notice the best-known brands in this industry presented here in the list.
