Kelty Lowdown Chair

Kelty’s Lowdown Chair is like a portable lounge chair. It’s low to the ground and slightly reclined, so you can relax in comfort without needing a footrest. The insulated, adjustable cup holder on the armrest can fit and cool (or keep warm) any size beverage, adding to the chill factor. The Lowdown Chair quickly rolls up and packs into the padded tote storage with compression straps to make it extra portable.

CLIQ Portable Camping Chair

This reinforced area keeps your spine aligned and helps you maintain a healthy posture while relaxing. This particular model is designed for people above 5’ 8”, but STRONGBACK offers the same lumbar support technology in its similar models, like the Guru chair (made for people under 5’ 8”) and the Low Gravity Recliner.

Pair with your favorite sleeping bag for a comfortable alternative to spending the night on the ground.

The right chairs can make or break a camping trip — no one wants to go into a s'mores-induced sugar coma while squirming in a flimsy foldable. And if you're lugging all your gear on a backpacking journey, a portable seat you can properly rest on is even more crucial. Knowing which brands and models to trust is the first step to creating your own outdoor oasis.

The industry is flooded with options for portable chairs, from compact seats that are light enough for extended treks to heavy-duty rocking chairs that let you recreate your living room on the campground. After testing all kinds for portability, comfort, durability, and more, our favorite is the Kijaro Dual Lock Camping Chair, a versatile, supremely comfortable folding chair that's packed with features for a bargain price.

Best Overall

Kijaro dual lock camping chair.

  • Ease of Use 5 /5
  • Comfort 5 /5
  • Portability 3.5 /5
  • Durability 5 /5

This sag-free canvas folding chair keeps you cool with a mesh back panel, has unbeatable stability, and comes in 11 eye-popping colors.

It's a bit heavier than similar camping chairs.

The Kijaro Dual Lock Camping Chair has everything you need for a convenient and comfortable stay in the wilderness. Equipped with a locking feature that ensures it stays taut, this chair immediately impressed us with its standout comfort and sturdiness. The firm-yet-cozy seat is supportive enough to sit in for hours, and we were particularly pleased by how supportive the armrests were compared to other chairs with a similar design. You don't always find comfortable over-sized chairs, and this chair works for everyone in my family. And after regularly using the chair for six months (and leaving it out in the rain on occasion), it's still in great condition.

Thoughtful features like a zippered pocket for securing valuables, a mesh cell phone pouch, and two cup holders make the Kijaro exceptionally convenient for everything from tailgates to beach days. It's available in 11 colors, many of which are unique in the outdoor product space. The chair comes with a carrying bag but also has a shoulder strap attached directly to its frame in case you want to ditch the sack. All this at a good price, making it an incredible value for a comfy camp chair that's built to last through countless seasons.

Best Overall, Runner-Up

Kelty lowdown chair.

  • Portability 4 /5

High-quality construction meets innovative design in this quilted chair with brilliant amenities.

Some campers may prefer chairs that are higher up from the ground.

Colorado-based outdoor brand Kelty has perfected the art of making camp chairs. Both the Lowdown Camping Chair and Kelty's two-person loveseat beat stiff competition with impeccable construction, unique features, and comfort levels that had our group of campers wanting to spend the entire day lounging. Your struggles to fit a camp chair back into its bag? They're over. In lieu of your typical carrying case, the Kelty Lowdown Camping Chair comes in a quilted wrap with a plush shoulder strap. The wrap's adjustable buckles make it perfect for storing extra equipment, and it's padded enough to double as a cozy dog bed or picnic blanket. Designers also didn't skimp on style: The chair and matching roll-up tote come in three rustic color schemes.

The Kelty's polyester seat cover manages to meld a cloud-like cushion with a supportive feel that's kind to your back after a long day of roughing it. Adjustable armrests are equipped with insulated cup holders that can be expanded to fit massive water bottles and oversized mugs. No one was surprised to see this chair pass our durability test with flying colors. If you're willing to try something a bit unique, a heavy-duty steel frame and sturdy fabric means your investment in this chair should pay off for a lifetime of outdoor relaxation. However, since many campers prefer chairs at a traditional height, the Kelty Lowdown narrowly missed winning our Best Overall pick.

The Details: 7.3 pounds | 32.5 x 8 x 8 inches | 350-pound weight capacity

Best Lightweight

Rei co-op flexlite air chair.

  • Ease of Use 4.5 /5
  • Portability 5 /5

Like an ant that can carry many times its body weight, this incredibly light chair provides stability and support but takes up negligible packing space.

The pole legs can sink into sand or other soft ground, so it's best used on hard surfaces, and it's so lightweight that wind can easily blow it away.

If you're a minimalist traveler, REI's Co-op Flexlite Air Chair is the ideal type of camping gear for you. The 1-pound seat comes with a minuscule stuff sack that can easily be slipped into a backpack or suitcase. We also loved that setting up and breaking down the aluminum frame and seat cover is conveniently intuitive. You may doubt a chair this light and compact could also be sturdy, but it held up beautifully to all the plopping, dropping, and throwing they could put it through. The nylon seat material also repels water.

In terms of comfort, the Co-op Flexlite Air Chair has the perfect amount of give. It provides support without feeling rigid. It's so small and lightweight to bring around, you can even throw it into a backpack or tote bag.

Best Budget Lightweight

Trekology yizi go portable camping chair.

  • Comfort 4.5 /5
  • Durability 3 /5

It's a rare lightweight chair with cup holders and a high back.

It may be a bit too narrow for users with broad shoulders, and there are lighter options on the market.

Trekology's Yizi-go is an incredible value in the ultralight chair space. Delivering on its get-up-and-go promise, the Yizi-go is exceptionally easy to carry, set up, and pack away. After regularly using the chair for six months, we found that it's one of the easiest options to set up and break down. In addition to being very compact, its stuff sack has a strap for easy transport and safekeeping under the chair when you're using it. The convenience continues with two side pockets that function as cup holders or storage for other provisions. The chair is comfy enough for all-day sitting, and we appreciated that the back was higher on this chair than the other lightweight options we evaluated. Mesh side panels provide breathability that's perfect for warm weather, but if you'd like to use this chair at the beach or on other soft grounds, we recommend getting a Trekology sand cover to avoid sinkage. The chair comes in black, red, blue, and green, and you can save a few dollars per chair by purchasing a pack of two on the Trekology website.

Best for Hiking

Helinox chair zero.

  • Comfort 3.5 /5

It's compact enough to carry in some purses.

It may be uncomfortable for people with wide body frames.

For an ultra lightweight chair that's ready to make your hiking breaks a breeze, opt for the Helinox Chair Zero. It has two open panels in the seat back for breathability, and when packed up in its ripstop polyester stuff sack, it's totally tiny. This is a perfect option for throwing in a tote or backpack to take to the park and on hikes. We love that setup is quick and easy, because no one needs to struggle with poles after sweating it out on the trails. Its light weight also impressed — when we threw it around to assess its durability, the chair basically sailed like a feather.

We have no doubt the aluminum frame and UV-resistant polyester seat are designed to last through years upon years of outdoor seasons. The chair and sack are also machine washable, so you can always head out on a hike feeling fresh. Like many ultralight chairs structured with a pole base, it will sink into soft ground like snow or sand, but Helinox makes a ground sheet you can buy to make the chair more versatile.

The Details: 1.1 pounds | 13.8 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches | 265-pound weight capacity

Best Two-person

Kelty low loveseat camping chair.

This loveseat's proportions and padding are perfect for getting cozy by the fire.

It has a 400-pound weight capacity.

We were downright giddy over this spacious, cleverly designed outdoor loveseat. The two-seater slips in and out of a slot in the wrap-up, tote-style carrier, which can be expanded to fit other gear for storage and double as a dog mat when the chair is in use. When it comes to comfort, the Kelty Low Loveseat was one of the most outstanding during our test. Even after regularly using this chair for six months, it's just as plush and comfortable as ever. It has more than enough room for two people — and perhaps a pet — to lounge. (If you want even more room, Kelty also makes a party-sized couch with plenty of space for three people.) Sturdy, padded fabric forms a supportive high back and adjustable armrests. The low height instantly turns the ground into a footrest, and the seat is wide enough to provide leg support that makes you feel like you're reclining.

Ready for the rough-and-tumble outdoor life, the loveseat posed virtually no knock-over risk. It comes in four unique color-block patterns that give it a chicer look than your typical camp chair. Kelty also went the extra mile when it came to cup holders: each armrest has space for two beverages and is insulated to maintain temperature. We've spent hours lounging on it around the campfire, finding it's perfect for a solo-sitter to spread out on in addition to being a great option for cozying up with a partner.

The Details: 15.3 pounds | 34.5 x 11 x 11 inches | 400-pound weight capacity

Best Budget Two-person

Trademark innovations 31.5"h loveseat style double camp chair.

  • Comfort 3 /5
  • Durability 4.5 /5

It provides decent upper back support.

The seats aren't very wide.

Significantly less expensive than our overall favorite two-seater, this loveseat comes at a fantastic price for a large piece of camping furniture. It's definitely comfortable, and although it couldn't topple Kelty for the top spot, we'd recommend it to someone looking for a two-person chair at an accessible price. Trademark's loveseat is also lighter and more compact than our overall favorite two-person chair, and we were surprised by how supportive and sturdy it was given its small size. A carrying bag makes it perfect for grabbing and going to picnics or spectator events, where you can make use of its two cup holders.

Price at time of publish: $52

The Details: 9.1 pounds | 32.9 x 8.5 x 4.9 inches | 440-pound weight capacity

Best Rocking Chair

Gci outdoor freestyle rocker chair.

  • Comfort 4 /5
  • Portability 2 /5
  • Durability 3.5 /5

It's solidly built and sits higher up from the ground than must camping chairs.

It's heavy and not very compact when folded.

A rocking chair can take your campsite serenity to a new level. GCI's Freestyle Rocker is sturdy and supportive but provides a soothing swaying motion. Sitting up higher than most camping furniture, the chair delivers a classic, cozy living-room feel and features outdoor-ready shocks that endured our durability drop test beautifully. The sturdy steel frame supports padded armrests, a back with a breathable mesh panel, and a cup holder for added comfort. It comes with a handle for transport and folds flat.

Price at time of publish: $70

The Details: 12 pounds | 4.9 x 24 x 34.8 | 250-pound weight capacity

Travel + Leisure /Tamara Staples

Best Recliner

Gci outdoors zero gravity recliner.

  • Ease of Use 4 /5
  • Portability 1 /5

Easy-to-use locks make it simple to secure the recliner and footrest in place.

It's heavier than most camping chairs.

If your camping priorities include stargazing or napping in the fresh air, GCI's Freeform Zero Gravity Chair is a must-have. You can choose between two positions: sitting upright with the footrest in use or fully reclined with the back shifted. Adjusting between positions requires almost no effort, and yellow locks on either side keep your chosen recline level firmly in place so you can fully relax. The cup holder is positioned perfectly for grabbing your drink whether you are lying back or sitting upright, and it's designed to stay put no matter how much you're adjusting the recline. The mesh material kept air flowing and had just enough cushy bounce to have us dozing off, while an included pillow ensured our necks were in a comfortable position.

The Details: 20 pounds | 36.4 x 30.3 x 6.1 | 300-pound weight capacity

Best for Hot Weather

Rei co-op camp x chair.

The drop-down pocket with a drawstring closure keeps small valuables safe.

After storing, it comes out of the carrying case very wrinkled.

While sturdy canvas chairs are great for keeping your back supported, no one wants to be engulfed in a thick fabric when the temperature rises. REI's Co-op Camp X Chair brings the best of both worlds with a webbed nylon mesh that keeps you cozy and cool. The material is designed to evenly distribute your weight and maximize comfort, and we found the material was tense enough to feel supportive while letting them take advantage of the breeze.

Since the breathable mesh is also quick-drying, you can feel free to plop down in a wet bathing suit and leave the chair out during afternoon rain showers. And although its thinness may cause you concern, it has proved to be durably and sturdy after months of use. The right armrest has a mug-compatible cup holder, while the left armrest's unique drop-down pocket can be secured with a drawstring to make sure your valuables stay put. The pocket is especially handy for keeping track of your phone or other small items you want to access easily. After six months of use, we love storing this chair in our car trunk for easy access. The included stuff sack has both a handle and a shoulder strap for hands-free carrying.

Price at time of publish: $50

The Details: 7.1 pounds | 7 x 33 inches | 300-pound weight capacity

Best for Hammock-lovers

Eno lounger dl camping chair.

  • Value 4.5 /5

The adjustable legs let you choose how high up you are from the ground.

Putting the chair back into its carrying bag was slightly difficult, and we would prefer to be able to adjust the level of recline.

It can be a little bit heartbreaking to find a gorgeous relaxation spot — with nowhere to hang up your favorite hammock. Thanks to Eagles Nest Outfitters, you can have the comfort of hammock lounging without needing trees, trying to transport a clunky free-standing hammock, or being beholden to the location of trees on your campsite. We love this chair for its incredible comfort, the DL Lounger features a high back topped with a cushioned headrest, a slight recline, and breathable fabric that practically begs you to take a nap in it. You can set the legs at either a 3- or 20-inch height, and there are two storage pockets and a cup holder for your lounging convenience. Since the chair weighs just under 5 pounds, transport is almost as stress-free as snoozing in this crowd-pleaser.

Price at time of publish: $140

The Details: 4.6 pounds | 23 x 7 inches | 250-pound weight capacity

Most Supportive

Yeti trailhead camp chair.

It has a significantly higher weight capacity than any other chair we tested.

After six months of use, we found that it's very heavy for a camping chair and prone to scratching.

The Yeti Trailhead Camp Chair is a rock-solid piece of outdoor furniture that'll stay sturdy and supportive even under the toughest conditions. It's firm, roomy, and ready for heavy use. Yeti's Flexgrid fabric is taut and durable with just the right amount of stretch to conform to your body and provide pressure relief where it's most needed. We found it to be extremely supportive on the back and legs and marveled at how difficult it was to knock over during the durability test. The material is also resistant to damage from UV rays and breathable enough to prevent spills or rain from pooling in the seatbed.

Yeti's luxury support does come with a price tag to match. The Trailhead is also on the heavier side for a camp chair, and it's far from compact. However, if you're setting up camp for an extended stay, having home-furniture level comfort — and a whooping 500-pound weight capacity — could be worth the extra effort in transport. Plus, though the chair is large even when folded up, its spacious backpack carrying case with cushioned, adjustable shoulder straps makes dealing with the size and weight much easier.

Price at time of publish: $300

The Details: 13.3 pounds | 10 x 8 x 43 inches | 500-pound weight capacity

Best for Meals

Coleman camp chair with side table.

  • Portability 3 /5

Its rigid backrest is perfect for sitting upright at mealtime.

The cup holder isn't big enough for some large containers.

Coleman's heavy-duty outdoor chair with a side table can transform your camping mealtimes. An aluminum side table flips up when you're ready to feast and includes a cup holder. The chair's backrest is slightly angled, and those who prefer firm support enjoyed the strong, taut fabric. Thanks to the extra space for cup handles, mugs easily fit in the beverage slot. Although it doesn't come with a carrying bag, the chair has two built-in handles. The Coleman chair does have a unique folding design that we did not find very intuitive, but it worked smoothly once they got the hang of lifting up the sides of the seatbed to collapse the chair. For car campers looking to simplify their dining routine, it's a nice addition to your gear collection.

Price at time of publish: $66

The Details: 8.8 pounds | 31.1 x 21 x 7.5 inches | 225-pound weight capacity

Coleman Camping Chair with Built-in 4 Can Cooler

This roomy seat has a four-can cooler attached.

It doesn't offer very much back support.

This affordable, durable, comfortable chair is tailored to those who like their refreshments. The cooler pocket fits four standard cans and zips up to insulate your beverages of choice. In addition to the cooler, the chair has a mesh cup holder, two mesh pockets, and a roomy seat that's 24 inches wide. It easily folds up and slips into its shoulder-strap carrying bag and is lightweight enough to carry to a picnic. While the padded seat and armrests are great for campers who like a cushioned feel, some may find the chair lacking in back support.

The Details: 7.3 pounds | 38.25 x 7.5 x 7 inches | 325-pound weight capacity

Most Versatile

Nemo moonlite reclining chair.

It has a sleek look and adjustable recline.

It's not the most comfortable if you have a wider frame.

Whether you want to sit upright for a snack break or lean back to lounge with a good book, Nemo's Moonlight Reclining Chair is great to have on hand. Sturdy, adjustable buckles allow you to choose just the right level of recline for whatever you're using the chair for at any given time. The seat is made of a webbed mesh that comfortably conforms to your body and promotes airflow. The chair seemed surprisingly wear-resistant given how light it is and complimented the ball-and-socket joint system that helps the chair accommodate different body types. The Moonlite weighs under two pounds, folds into a compact position, and comes with a zip-up carrying bag.

Price at time of publish: $119

The Details: 1.8 pounds | 26 x 20 x 20 inches | 300-pound weight capacity

After our product team extensively researched the market, a group of editors with a wide range of camping experiences gathered in our New York City lab to test 29 of the best portable outdoor chairs. We evaluated the ease of use, comfort, portability, and durability of each. Testers refrained from checking the prices of the chairs until they'd judged all their other attributes.

We tested one chair at a time, starting by setting them up for use and paying close attention to whether there was any guesswork or fumbling involved in assembly. To see how comfortable it was to use the chairs for extended periods of time, we sat in each for 15-20 minutes, making sure to evaluate any extra features like tables, coolers, and cup holders. We also tested any adjustable features like recliners and armrests to see if those functions worked smoothly.

Keeping in mind that good portability is key for outdoor chairs, we broke down and packed each for transport, testing their carrying cases and any and all straps and handles to judge the placement, size, and design. Testers considered whether the chairs would be too heavy, bulky, or awkward to carry for either a long distance or simply from a house to a car trunk.

Three factors made up our durability rating: quality, damage resistance, and longevity. We plopped down hard into the chairs and bounced around on them up and down and side to side, noting whether the frames and fabric seemed sturdy, stable, wobbly, cheap, resistant to rips, or well built. To gauge how well the chairs could withstand exposure to the elements and rough handling, we dropped them from shoulder height in both their folded and unfolded positions. We made note of any scuff marks and damage to the functionality of the chairs and recorded whether we thought the chair could last through many years and uses.

At the end of the lab test, the chair's current retail price was revealed to the testers, and they considered whether it was fairly priced, if they would purchase the chair themselves, and how confident they would be in recommending the chair to a friend.

Finally, we sent the chairs out to put them to the test on real campgrounds, hikes, and other outdoor events. Testers provide periodic updates to report on the chairs' performances over the course of six months.

Other Chairs We Liked

Some of the 29 chairs we tested had unique features that set them apart from the crowd but fell short in categories that kept their score too low to make our list of recommendations. Still, you may find these options to be well-suited for your specific camping needs.

Coastrail Camping Chair with Lumbar Support : Coastrail's folding chair has adjustable lumbar support, a headrest with a zip-up pocket, a cooler in one armrest, and additional storage pockets to boot. However, it was too heavy for a single-person chair and questioned the quality of the zippers.

Big Agnes Big Six Camp Chair : The Big Six Camp Chair is comfortable, particularly for people who want a bigger chair with a very high back. But given its rather high price tag, we aren't confident enough about the quality and durability of the material to justify a recommendation.

Tips for Buying a Camping Chair

Make sure you have enough chairs for everyone.

Nothing is worse than finding yourself forced to play musical chairs around the campfire. If you're camping with a group, make sure enough chairs have been purchased and packed for everyone. Since different chairs will be best for each individual based on body type, age, and personal preference, it's a good idea to have a collection of chairs that suit a variety of needs. Some campers may need a high back with extra support, while others may prioritize a style that's low to the ground.

Consider how much comfort you're willing to sacrifice for portability

Generally speaking, the lightest chairs out there won't deliver as plush of a sitting experience as bulkier products that weren't meant to accompany you on backpacking adventures. If you're looking for a chair to take on the move, opt for something weighing under 2 pounds that can be stored as compactly as possible. These no-frills seats are more tolerable for resting your terrain-tested feet than for enjoying multiple meals, drinks, and the company of other campers around a fire.

Invest in a chair you can use for multiple outdoor activities

While paying premium prices for a camping chair when you only make it to the wilderness a couple times of year may not seem practical, good portable seating can be an invaluable addition to your home life too. Foldable midweight chairs are great for sports spectating, beach days, and backyard parties, while lightweight models designed for backpacking are perfect for bringing along to music festivals, picnics, or even sightseeing days when seating may not be available for rest stops. If your chair has pole legs, just make sure that you bring along a ground sheet if you may be encountering soft surfaces like sand.

Buy a chair suited to your bodily needs

Outdoor furniture is not one size fits all, so think carefully about your unique needs before committing to a style. Shorties (like yours truly) may be uncomfortable in seats that are too high to rest their feet on the ground while their backs are flush against the chair. A few of the lightweights we tested were cozy enough to sleep in for some campers, while others found them to be too narrow to comfortably fit their shoulders. If lumbar support is a must, it could be worth transporting a bit of extra weight to have a super sturdy chair on your site.

Store your camp chair in a dry place to avoid molding and rusting. If your chair didn't come with a storage bag, consider keeping it under the protection of a tarp or storage bin.

Some manufacturers provide cleaning instructions for their camp chairs, so always check to see if any were included with yours. To clean a camping chair made of polyester or another canvas material, start by brushing off any dirt with a soft bristle brush. Then, mix 1/3 warm water and 2/3 vinegar in a spray bottle, and scrub the fabric after wetting. Use a mild soap to wash the chair legs. Set the chair out in direct sunlight to dry.

Many camping chairs are perfect for the beach. You're best off with chairs made of lightweight, breathable, and quick-drying materials like mesh and that have wide bases that won't sink into the sand. Chairs with cup holders, coolers, or side tables can be beach day MVPs. If you want to use a chair with pole legs, get a ground sheet that can accommodate soft surfaces to prevent it from sinking into the sand. Also be aware that some ultralight chairs can go wayward when left unattended on windy days, so always weigh them down before heading into the surf.

The Best Camping Chairs

First, consider where you use your chair most often.

Are you a car camper or do you plan on socializing in friends’ backyards? Choose a comfy chair with ample beverage storage.

Do you love watching movies outdoors? Opt for a low-slung chair that adjusts for uneven ground.

Are you a backpacker? Your perfect seat is slight and light .

REI Co-op Camp Chair - Kids’

The best camping chair for kids.

A functional cupholder, a convenient carry strap, and durable fabric distinguish REI’s kids’ chair from similar seats.

Every big-box and outdoor-equipment store sells camp chairs that have a similar design to the Coleman Cooler Quad Chair . But after three group camping trips and six months of regular backyard use, we concluded that the Coleman chair is far more durable than the cheapest chairs of this design. And it’s also more comfortable and functional than similar chairs that cost over twice as much. With ample storage for beverages, a wide seat that testers of all sizes appreciated, and an affordable price, this is the Ford F-150 of camp chairs: big, tough, and widely beloved.


The Renetto Original Canopy Chair , a cleverly designed specialty seat, is ideal for anyone who wants sun protection and doesn’t mind a heavier, bulkier chair. Despite the Renetto’s weight, our testers found it easy to carry and simple to set up and adjust. We discovered that even though most testers had not previously considered a shade-equipped camp chair, once they used one they appreciated the comfort and convenience of built-in sun blocking.

A low-to-the-ground chair can be ideal for outdoor movies, concerts, theater performances, and other events where you want to avoid blocking other people’s view. Our testers liked the comfort and back support of the GCI Outdoor Everywhere Chair , as well as the ability to adjust it to sit on uneven ground. They also appreciated its cupholder (rare in chairs of this sort) and its quick close-up-and-carry design.

Today’s specialty backpacking chairs are impressively small and light. They’re also far more expensive and significantly less comfortable than typical full-size camp chairs. We recommend buying this type only if you intend to carry your chair long distances, whether you’re backpacking or trekking across Central Park. If you do need a fits-in-a-knapsack chair, we recommend the Helinox Chair One . We found this model to be slightly more comfortable and easier to pack than other, similar chairs.

Cheap child-size chairs bought at big-box stores are unlikely to last more than a summer or two. The fold-up REI Co-op Camp Chair - Kids’ uses more-durable fabric and materials and has a stable design that resists toppling toddlers. You could buy this chair for a 2-year-old and expect the child to outgrow it before it gives out.

The research

Who this is for, how we picked and tested, our pick: coleman cooler quad chair, built-in sun protection: renetto original canopy chair, a low-to-the-ground option: gci outdoor everywhere chair, a packable chair: helinox chair one, also great: rei co-op camp chair - kids’, the competition.

three potable camping chairs folded up on the ground.

Camping trips, beach days, picnics in the park, outdoor movies and theater performances, a fresh-air get-together with friends—there are countless occasions when you might use a camp chair.

Walk around any campground or tailgate party, and you’ll notice the popularity of this variety of accordion-style seat. You can pick one up at just about any big-box store (sometimes for as little as $10), order one with your favorite sports team’s logo, or pay a premium for a similar model from Cabela’s or REI.

Portable outdoor chairs are also helpful for anyone who doesn’t have the room or budget for permanent backyard furniture. And they can save your back, make it easier to juggle a picnic plate and a cold beverage, and generally help you to relax comfortably outdoors.

We conducted 14 hours of online research, grilled friends and acquaintances about their portable-chair experiences, evaluated 11 highly reviewed folding chairs on three group camping trips, and used the chairs regularly in a backyard over a six-month period to tease out the distinctions between a good chair and a great one. Because people use outdoor chairs for an array of purposes and have different preferences when it comes to comfort, it was almost impossible to choose just one best chair. We did select our favorite upright chair for car camping and tailgating, and then additional low-to-the-ground, ultra-lightweight, and canopy picks, as well as a great chair for kids.

A Quad chair in front of a tent

After six months of regularly using the Coleman Cooler Quad Chair , we think it’s the best choice for most people who are seeking an upright chair for car camping, tailgating, and outdoor gatherings. We noticed during the first of our three camping trips—a weekend in California’s Joshua Tree National Park , with a total of seven families—that, given the choice, campers prefer to take the biggest seat. When we set up a dozen chairs around the campfire without comment, people consistently claimed them from largest to smallest.

On a later trip, to Wheeler Gorge Campground , near Ojai, California, we systematically polled four camping families about their seat preferences, playing multiple rounds of music-less musical chairs until each camper was able to identify a favorite. Overwhelmingly, the Coleman came out on top, with campers praising its comfort and stability.

portable travel stool

The Coleman was the only chair of those we tested that had a built-in cooler bag. The bag can hold four standard-size beer or soda cans. The chair also has the round mesh cupholder found on most chairs of this type, plus a roomy mesh pocket for stowing a phone, book, tablet, and maybe a headlamp. “This is the Platonic ideal of your camp chair,” one of our Wheeler Gorge campers gushed. “It really just feels so stable. It has your cooler, your cupholder. It’s not too fancy, just very comfortable to sit in.”

Like most chairs of this type, the Coleman Oversized Quad comes with an over-the-shoulder carry bag. It weighs 7½ pounds and is rated to hold up to 325 pounds.

After six months of sitting mostly outside in the Southern California sun, our gray Coleman chair was noticeably less faded than our Walmart and Renetto chairs, the latter of which had bleached from bright red to pink.

Beyond that initial six-month testing period, the Coleman has held up well since it was purchased in 2016. We’re confident that this comfortable, functional chair is a great deal, and well worth the extra cost versus a bargain-basement version at a big-box store.

The Rennetto Original Canopy Chair.

Before we tried the Renetto Original Canopy Chair , we had never considered buying a shade-equipped camp chair. There’s always a sun hat or an umbrella, after all. But the Renetto’s utility was immediately apparent on our inaugural chair-testing excursion, a “winter” camping trip in California’s Joshua Tree National Park, where the beating sun made temperatures in the high 70s feel like the mid-90s. The shaded Renetto chairs were consistently the first seats snagged at a beautiful but harshly exposed Indian Grove group campsite .

At more than 15 pounds, the Renetto chair is big and heavy (twice as heavy as the Coleman Cooler Quad Chair ). That’s because each chair incorporates heavy-duty, 600-denier mesh-lined polyester and steel poles, which the company says are three times the thickness of those on cheap store brands. (The term denier refers to the thickness of the fibers in a fabric: the higher the denier number, the stronger the fabric.) The seat has a strip of breathable mesh down the middle, and the canopy is big enough to block most, if not all, sunlight any time of day; if you want to catch some rays, just flip the canopy back. You can see a video of all the features in action on the company’s website .

We were impressed with the usability of Renetto’s signature design. The canopy quickly and easily transforms into a carrying case—just wrap it around the chair and snap it closed with two plastic buckles, and you can carry the whole thing on your back like an oblong backpack. We brought this chair to a dense Los Angeles neighborhood to watch Fourth of July fireworks. Parking was scarce, and when we finally found a spot, more than half a mile from the festivities, we considered leaving the bulky chair in the car, especially since we were also pushing a stroller loaded with a toddler, a blanket, a picnic setup, and three other folding chairs. But carrying the Renetto was comfortable and unobtrusive. We got some admiring nods en route to the celebration—and we had one of the more comfy seats at the show.

Wirecutter's Dan Frakes has owned three Renetto chairs. “Every time we take ours camping or to a kid’s soccer game, people ask us where to buy one,” he told us. His family has found that the backpack straps make the chairs easy to carry, and the canopy is an appreciated feature. “They’re so great for so many things—camping, the beach, kid events, outdoor concerts—that we’re glad we spent a little extra for the Renetto.”

The Renetto chair usually comes in between 8 and 10 colors and is rated to hold up to 350 pounds. Note that although Renetto licenses its patent to a company called Kelsyus—which makes cheaper versions of the chair for big-box stores such as Target and Walmart—Renetto company president Steve Tinto told us in an email that the quality of the Renetto-brand chair is far better and that the Renetto chair includes features not found on the less expensive versions.

One caveat: After it sat outside for six months in the relentless Los Angeles sun, the bright red chair we received in January had faded considerably. We purposely left our chairs set up, often for weeks at a time, to see how they responded to the elements (though Renetto and most any other outdoor-gear company would advise that you keep chairs put away and out of the bright sun or rain when you’re not using them).

Renetto chairs have a one-year warranty .

The GCI chair.

A close-to-the-ground chair is often the ideal choice for outdoor concerts, movies, theater performances, and other events where you will be concerned about blocking other people’s view. After six months of using the chairs on three weekend camping trips, in the backyard, and on occasional local excursions to the park and beach, we concluded that the majority of people find the GCI Outdoor Everywhere Chair to be the most comfortable of the bunch, as well as the simplest and fastest to fold up and carry.

The Everywhere Chair keeps your bottom about 4 inches off the ground. The strap that supports the back (and doubles as a carry strap) allows adjustments to control your angle of recline, from upright to a stargazing-appropriate angle. Unlike other portable chairs, the Everywhere Chair is designed to sit on uneven slopes; this can be handy when space is limited at a fireworks show or an outdoor theater performance. Our panel of testers at the Wheeler Gorge Campground deemed the Everywhere Chair to be the most comfortable of the three low-to-the-ground chairs we tested.

This chair doesn’t come with a stuff bag. But after half a dozen excursions, we found—as we had with the Renetto Original Canopy Chair —that having a chair you can easily carry without a bag is preferable. In real-world conditions, you’re often packing up fast to try to get ahead of crowds or traffic. So you can easily misplace a carry sack on a dark night in a crowded field, especially if you’re in a large group or have a lot of stuff. At a fireworks show and at the beach, we appreciated a chair that was ready to go without even 30 seconds of hassle. The Everywhere Chair closes like a book—simply lift the padded strap and go.

Another basic but important distinction: Unlike the Coleman Kickback Breeze , for instance, the Everywhere Chair has a cupholder. Again, in the dark and in a crowd, a small thing becomes a significant advantage. When you’ve lugged a bottle of wine with your picnic, you don’t want a precious glass to end up spilled in the grass.

The GCI Outdoor chair also has a pocket built into the back that can hold a phone or a book. This chair comes in green or blue and is rated to hold up to 250 pounds.

Helinox Chair One

After two hours of initial online research, three camping trips, and several months of use in a Los Angeles backyard, we determined that the Helinox Chair One is the best outdoor chair for anyone who requires an especially lightweight, easily portable seat.

Someone begins to unzip the small Helinox chair bag.

The Helinox Chair One weighs about 2 pounds, compresses smaller than a 2-liter bottle of soda, and is the most comfortable and easy to stow of the three top backpacking chairs we tested. Like competing chairs, the Chair One has a nylon and mesh seat and aluminum legs, which are linked with shock cord (the chair legs are made out of the same material as high-end tent poles). Simply snap the legs into their slots and stretch the rectangular seat onto the resulting frame, and you have an upright chair that’s small and light enough to consider bringing on a backpacking trip, or even sliding into a large purse or laptop bag for an after-work outdoor movie or concert.

We also tested REI’s Flexlite Chair, which was remarkably similar to the Chair One in design, size, and price. (That chair has since been replaced by the Co-op Flexlite Camp Chair , which has a nearly identical design but uses ripstop polyester instead of nylon.) Although the Flexlite had the advantage of being slightly lighter than the Chair One (a factor that could be key for hikers who are planning on carrying their chair miles into the backcountry), we otherwise found a number of small details that were superior on the Chair One. Most important: Although the dimensions of the two seats are almost identical, the fabric on the Helinox seat had a cut that made it feel roomier and more comfortable to anyone with anything other than a pencil-thin behind. Also, after several months of use, some of the paint on the legs of the Flexlite has scraped off. And the Helinox’s carry case, which is shaped like a doll-size ski bag, is easier to use than the stuff-sack-style bag that came with the Flexlite.

The Chair One is rated to hold up to 320 pounds, versus 250 pounds for the Flexlite and for the third chair we tested, the Alite Monarch Chair (the latter chair is no longer available, as Alite went out of business in late 2019).

A perhaps-obvious caveat: Sure, if you’re in the wilderness and your other option is sitting on a rock, a chair like this like one will seem impressively comfortable—even luxurious. But it feels like sitting in Baby Bear’s chair compared with the comfort of our other top picks, such as the Renetto Original Canopy Chair or the Papa Bear–like Coleman Cooler Quad . The bottom line: If you don’t specifically need a chair that’s small and light, get a bigger, more comfortable chair that also has the advantage of costing half as much.

Aside from testing 11 chairs to determine our regular picks, we also spent several hours researching kid-specific camp chairs, after which we narrowed the field to five favorite child-size models and then compared them over three camping trips that involved a total of 16 little kids. We also let two boys, ages 1 and 5, play with them and sit on them in the backyard for six months. After all that, we concluded that the REI Co-op Camp Chair - Kids’ is the best choice for anyone who wants to buy a practical, portable outdoor chair for a small child.

several kids in camping chairs listening to an adult tell a story.

Our not-too-discriminating underage testers liked all the kids’ chairs, though over time we found several reasons to declare the REI Camp Chair the best of the bunch. The REI chair’s polyester seat material feels both more forgiving and more durable than the thinner material on the Ozark Trail Kids’ Folding Camp Chair from Walmart. The box-shaped cupholder is a little roomier than the round cupholders on the Coleman and the L.L.Bean Base Camp chairs—better for stubby water bottles or mugs of hot chocolate around the campfire. We found that the cheaply constructed Walmart chair had a cupholder that was too small for a soda can, or any of the hard-plastic or metal water bottles that the kids we know brought on a camping trip. It will fit a Capri Sun pouch or a narrow, rectangular juice box, but that’s about it.

The 4-pound, steel-construction REI chair has an attached carry strap, rather than a carry bag like the other chairs. After a couple of camping trips, we concluded that a strap is more convenient than a bag—quicker and easier for a kid to grab the chair and go, without parental help. The REI chair is rated to hold up to 150 pounds, the same as the L.L.Bean and Walmart chairs. We think the REI chair is most appropriate for toddlers and kids up to about 7 or 8 years old, though reviews reveal that some small adults have found this to be their favorite seat. It comes in gray or blue, and as of this update it gets 4.7 out of five stars from reviewers on the REI site .

We think the REI chair functions better and will last much longer than the similar chair from Walmart. But the price difference is significant—and after six months of near-constant outdoor use, the Walmart chair was still in decent shape. If you are looking for an ultracheap choice, the Walmart chair is one.

Standard camping chairs

The Ozark Trail Oversized Mesh Chair from Walmart, although similar to our pick in size, was far less comfortable, with rough-feeling material that was obviously of lower quality. We later found, after six months of frequent use, that the stitching along one arm had come unravelled and that the small straps holding up the back of the armrests had both ripped in half.

We found the Coleman Kickback Breeze Chair to be a simple yet very comfortable seat, though women liked it more than men did (many of them judged it to be too snug). Anecdotally, we found that this chair category in general is more popular among women than among men, who generally prefer a higher, upright seat.

The REI Co-op Camp Stowaway Low Chair, which also had an ultralow profile, was extremely comfortable for most people, though its fold-up mechanism wasn’t completely intuitive. (This chair has since been discontinued; REI now offers an REI Co-op Camp Low Chair , which is two inches taller and, like the Stowaway and unlike our pick, has no cup-holder. If, however, you’ve owned the Stowaway, loved it, and wanted another, know that ALPS Mountaineering makes a chair, the Rendezvous , that looks identical.)

Lightweight chairs

REI’s Flexlite Chair has been replaced by an entire flock of Flexlite chairs; the one that is the closest to replacing the original Flexlite in the lineup is the Co-op Flexlite Camp Chair . The design, size, and weight is nearly identical, but the nylon fabric has been replaced with polyester.

At just 21 ounces, the Alite Monarch was the lightest of the three chairs we tested in this category, as well as the most compact, but its two-legged design required your own legs to serve as the third leg of the stool. Also, Alite went out of business in late 2019.

Kids’ chairs

The material on our kids’ chair pick feels both more forgiving and more durable than the thinner material on the Ozark Trail Kids’ Folding Camp Chair from Walmart or the stiffer material on the Coleman Youth Quad Chair . The cheaply constructed Walmart chair had a cupholder that was too small for a soda can or a hard-plastic or metal water bottle.

The cupholders on the L.L.Bean Kids’ Base Camp Chair aren’t as roomy as those on our picks, and they are not as adept at holding stubby water bottles or mugs of hot chocolate.
