Best Lightweight Folding Camp Chairs in 2020


If you are preparing for camping, you might want to check this list with lightweight folding camp chairs that are nicely packable and easy to use. So these chairs do not need any tool to make them ready and they will not take much space in the car trunk.

Apart from being lightweight and folding, they include a variety of other features that include any of the following or a combination of them:

  • Side table. This is always a folding design so you can use the chair at a camping table as an ordinary chair with folded side table.
  • Armrests that are either solid or soft. Sometimes these soft armrests are adjustable, and the solid armrests are frequently padded.
  • Some have high backrest and they provide headrest as well.
  • Some have one or more storage pouches. These are attachments on the sides of the chair to store a book, phone, glasses, and similar items. Many of them also have a cup holder integrated into the armrest or fixed at the side.
  • You will see also examples of rocking camping chairs.
  • Some of the chairs are padded and some are with mesh suitable for people who want more breathability.

These are camping chairs, models that need a car for transportation, but if you need something to carry on the trail please check our list with top rated backpacking chairs. You might also want to check these chairs from Columbia Basin Trail Chairs Series.

Regarding the materials, the frame is typically steel and very rarely aluminum. The chair fabric is usually polyester and in the case of padding, you can expect some open-cell foam. Some of them have bars on the ground instead of classic feet so this is a type you might want consider to avoid sinking in the case of a soft ground.
