Are you planning on going camping soon? You can make your stay in the outdoors much more comfortable with the simple addition of one or more camping chairs. No matter what sort of camping you’re planning on doing – backpacking or car/RV camping – there is a camping chair that will fit your needs and your budget. And when you get back home, just put the chair on your deck and use it year round.
Air chairs, or hammock chairs, are another solid option for relaxing in on camping trips. These sorts of chairs can come with a stand, but that’s not really a practical option for camping. The way you’ll use them on a camping trip is to simply hang them from a tree, like you would a hammock. The only difference is that air chairs only hang from one point, not two, so finding a suitable spot is much easier.
There are a couple of things to look for when you’re buying a camping chair. One important feature is the carrying case. Not only does this help with storage and travel, it’s also important in making sure the chair doesn’t get dinged or broken.
Another feature that is helpful while you are camping is a cup holder. Since you may not have a table to put your drink on this can greatly increase your comfort and relaxation. This may seem frivolous, but you will be glad you included this feature when you do not have to keep getting up to get a drink. Purchasing a camping chair with arm and footrests will also give you a place off of the ground to sleep.
Buying a cheap camping chair might be a good way to save a couple of bucks, but this isn’t something that you want to skimp on. Buying a name brand chair from a good manufacturer might cost a bit more now, but it’ll save you money in the long run. Well made camping chairs can last you for years and years, and you won’t have to put up with the frustration of having it break on one of your first trips.
No matter what sort of camping you do, having a camping chair is a great choice. There’s nothing better than coming back to your campsite after a full day of hiking and fishing and being able to sit down at your campsite with a cold beverage and your feet up.
