Best for Comfort

For luxury comfort, look no further than our Mesh Reclining Camping Chair. Because it reclines to 7 positions, it gives you the option of sitting bolt upright or lying back to soak up the sun. We’ve also designed it with padding in the seat, back, and headrest which is coated in a breathable 3D mesh to keep you cool and comfy. The only downside is that it folds flat, so it’s a bit bulky to carry compared to our Kestrel Camping Chair.

Best for Couples

If you’re going on a romantic camping trip, you don’t want to be bickering over who gets the chair. The great thing about our Falcon Padded Camping Chair is that it comes as a twin pack, so you get two chairs instead of one. Better still, it isn’t your bog-standard camping chair. As well as a drinks pocket on the right armrest, it has a side pocket which is large enough to store a magazine or tablet. Also, it’s made from durable 600D polyester with plush padding in the seat and backrest for a luxurious, comfortable feel.

Best for Sunbathing

Camping chairs aren't the best choice for sunbathing, but our Lounger Beach Mat is a different story. Whereas regular loungers are too bulky to take to the beach or campsite, this lightweight lounger folds into a compact size with a handle to easily carry. Once you've found a spot, simply place it on the ground like a beach mat and prop up the adjustable backrest to lie back in comfort. It's also lightly padded with a pocket to store essentials.
