Camping chairs have come a long way from the aluminum and plastic webbing variety many of us knew as kids. Today, camping chairs have gone high-tech, with cup holders, built in tables, and a whole lot more. Most of these models are folding camping chairs that collapse down into tiny packages you can cart around in a small carrying case.
Folding camping chairs are convenient, but like any camping chairs, they should be sturdy enough to stand up to the elements and the people who'll be using them. If you're hard on your camping chairs look for models made of steel tubing with extra strong seats and backs. Make sure they're weather resistant too, in case they get left out overnight in the rain.
Look for accessories that are well-built and will stand up to everyday use. Some tables and cup holders are flimsy and collapse easily, while others are sturdier and still set up like a breeze. Try out your camping chair in the store before you take it home to make sure it's the right choice for you.
Folding camping chairs are great if you have a motor home but for tent camping and backpacking I prefer those manufactured by the TREE company. I've used both the log and stump models. Also a company called ROCK makes many different styles but I found them to be less comfortable.
