How to Choose a Camping Chair
Camping chairs are ideal
for sitting around camp fires, concerts, watching outdoor sporting events or days at the park. Hunters, fisherman and other outdoor enthusiasts will also want to have one or a few within reach in the trunk of your car, on your porch or stored in your garage.
Backpack beach chairs are big winners for camping. Their storage pouches, backpack straps and foldflat design make them easy to carry and store. Other cool innovations on some camping chairs include no slip rubber feet and extra large feet to prevent sinkage into soft ground.
Camping chairs differ from beach chairs in the way they are structured. Camping chairs generally have four legs that are made for balanced seating on dirt and harder ground, while a beach chair is designed to not dig into the sand.
A camping chair may not be the best choice for beach because the legs will dig deeper into the sand making it harder to maneuver through the sand. But, there's always an exception to the rule.
At Beachstore.com, we have some camping chairs that are great for the beach because they have no legs! What? Yep! makes some unique padded chairs that sit on the ground.
For example, the Picnic Time Ventura backpack chair has 6 backrest positions and offers reversible arms rests that you can invert for wide or narrow are support. This chair is so versatile you may want it for the poolside, a picnic, even to keep on your living room floor. Many customers choose them for outdoor concerts or for extra padding on stadium arena seating. Also known as travel stadium chairs, they work well for camping and also keep your bottom warm on those cold bleachers found at outdoor sporting events.
Stadium chairs are lightweight fold flat for easy portability and usually come with a matching carry case. Choose a stadium chair that is padded and comes with an attached backrest and back support if you intend to place it directly on the stadium, bleachers, bench or even sit on the ground.
Other types of seating include stadium benches with legs. They can also double as camping seating since they fold up for easy portability.
