Camping chairs are tremendously versatile, lending themselves to a wide range of uses. They are the ideal choice around the campfire and can provide additional seating at backyard barbecues, picnics and more. Keep the following points in mind to find the camping chairs that are best for your needs:
- Heavy-duty zero-gravity chairs are a great choice if you are looking for an exceptionally comfortable chair for use in your backyard or at a vacation cottage. These camp chairs are designed to provide a sensation of weightlessness by evenly distributing your body weight and reducing pressure at key points.
- Folding arm chairs and director’s chairs are also very comfortable, and their lightweight materials make them easier to pack up and carry from place to place.
- Look for a sturdy aluminum or coated steel frame that folds up for compact carrying. Bring along the comforts of home with foldable chairs that feature arm and headrests lined with plush padding.
Seats at sporting events and other entertainment venues are not always the most comfortable. This can be especially true at youth, high school or lower-level college sports facilities, where you’ll typically find unforgiving bleachers. Portable stadium seats are designed to provide a more comfortable viewing experience. These foldable designs feature a padded seat and backrest for added support. You can also keep it simple and get the seat pad only.
Beach chairs are designed to sit closer to ground, allowing you to dig your toes into the sand or to let the surf wash over your ankles. The low-profile design offers more stability on an uneven surfaces like sand, a quality you may also find useful at events like outdoor concerts. Look for a beach chair with a built-in drink holder so you can keep an ice-cold beverage close at hand.
Consider the following before selecting your camping chair or portable chair from DICK’S.
Size & Weight
First of all, consider how and where your chairs will be used. If you’re heading on a strenuous backpacking trip, you’ll want a lightweight option that won’t weight you down — you may even want to consider a compact camping stool for maximum portability.
If you need camping chairs for more recreational activities, your primary focus should be comfort. Look for wide, sturdy seats that you and your guests can settle into. Get multiple seats in one with a portable folding bench that can fit several people — they’re ideal for family camping trips or on the sidelines of kids’ soccer games.
Not all camping chairs are created equal when it comes to maximum weight capacity, so check the specifications to ensure you’re getting a chair to meet your needs. Some camping chairs and benches available at DICK’S can support as much as 800 lbs. while others can only hold 150 lbs. Also, if children or small pets may join you in the chair, consider their additional weight as well.
