A Camping Chair, For When There Is No Rock To Sit On

Apr 24, 2008
So you're going on a camping trip does this mean that you have go endure the hardness of the countryside at all times? Of course not, a camping trip is also about relaxing and taking your mind of those daily life stresses. These days you have a choice from a wide range of camping chairs and there is always a chair available for that trip you are going to make.

No longer are you stuck with those clunky aluminium chairs with seats made out of nylon strips. The camping chairs available today are with frames that are steel enforced and have all kinds of ad-ons that make that you can put your back to rest on them with all the comfort you need after a day of hiking.

What ever your bottom needs

Almost all camping chairs, these days, fold up in an easy way and can be very light so that you would hardly feel any extra weight while traveling to and from your camping site or even if you take them along with you to an off-base location. No they are not like your cushy chair at home but there are some really comfortable one out there that will make your camping trip a lot more fun. Just to give a few examples the type of chairs on sale today include recliners, arm chairs and rockers.

Reclining camping chairs are easy to open up when you stretch them from the folded position into the sitting one and they have a foot rest that can be detached. Most of these recliners have 2 positions, a chair with foot rest position and a reclining one that can, to avoid collapses, lock into position.

Most of the folding camping chairs are comfortable and maneuverable because they are a bit oversized but still are very portable. A rocker camping chair is much alike the arm chair with the difference being the two mechanisms for rocking that should be snapped to the legs of the chair. so you could say that these rocker chairs are dual purpose chairs because they can be use as a normal chair but also as a rocker chair when ever you feel like it. Maybe you like to use the rocking function when you are sitting in front of that warm campfire.

Those little extras

When you are out to buy a camping chair you should be prepared to see a lot of things you may not even have imagined being possible on a chair you just want to use at your camping site. Maybe you are thinking about a chair with just a back and a seat but many of them have arm rests that may even be adjustable in your height and have drink holders in them. Some of the more expensive chairs like the rockers and recliners are known to have detachable head rests. If you don't want to buy a recliner but do like the idea of a foot rest you even have that option on some of the 'normal' arm chairs.

Lets be honest, if you are going on a hiking trip you don't want to carry around all these rocker and recliner type of camping chairs. Those are perfect if your on a trip with friends and you plan to stay on that one spot for a long time and you move around using a large car. Always choose a chair that not only fits your bottom but also the trip you are planning to take.
