Folding chair is the most important equipment in camping activities except bedding. One third of the camping time is spent in chairs. Compared with sitting on the wet ground, a comfortable and portable camping chair will undoubtedly greatly increase our happiness outdoors. Let's take a look at how to buy camping chairs.
Before choosing a chair, you need to evaluate the environment of the site, whether it is self driving camping, courtyard, mountain forest camping, or beach. If you are used for self driving camping, you can choose a leisure chair, which has various shapes, such as moon like, sofa like, etc. If you are backpacking, hiking, camping or traveling, and want to have a seat at any time during the journey, you might as well put an ultra light chair in your backpack. It has the advantages of light weight, small volume and good support. It can be used as a seat for rest.
If you go to the beach in summer, prepare a beach chair. It is relatively short, its hind legs can stretch on the beach, and its back is mostly set with breathable mesh to increase comfort; A beverage bag will also be provided at the handrail.
If you use it in a closed living room, your indoor space is very limited and it is not suitable for large camping chairs or lounge chairs. But if your equipment is an open sky curtain, you have the conditions to choose a larger chair and sit more comfortably.
Usually in winter, we need to keep warm and windproof. Usually, we prefer to use the living room account, while in summer, we prefer to build the sky curtain because we want to be ventilated. You usually have different plans to match, adapt to different camps, weather... And so on. So don't buy too big camping chair, which is more practical. It is suitable for both big sky curtain and living room account.
The height of the chair greatly affects the use experience. Be sure to choose a height that suits you and match it with your "camping table height". The height of about 40 ~ 55 cm belongs to "low table", and about 55 ~ 75 cm belongs to "high table". 75 cm above or 40 cm below, one may have to stand up and one may have to sit on the ground. Consider the height of the table and choose the height of the corresponding camping chair to ensure comfortable sitting. Therefore, high chairs are equipped with high tables, and low chairs are equipped with low tables to avoid the embarrassment caused by uneven height of tables and chairs.
Like other camping equipment, storage size is the top priority!!! Not only should we consider the storage space at home, but also the more important question is "can the car carry it?".
Generally speaking, the storage volume is inversely proportional to the comfort. The larger the storage volume, the more comfortable the chair is. It is better in stability and support. The price is that a certain position should be reserved for the chair in the carriage.
The storage of camping chairs can also be divided into "plate shape" and "column shape". Like the "folding chair", it is plate-shaped. Such chairs may need to be stowed, stuffed under the boot, and then stacked with other equipment. The "columnar" camping chair is better to store, but it should also be noted that the length should not be too long. It may not fit into the trunk or get stuck in the wheel arch of the car. It can be placed flexibly according to its weight, and can be placed on backpacks, motorcycles, etc.
Heavy weight people should also consider load.
The load of the camping chair is one of the data we often refer to, but it represents the "uniform load" rather than the concentrated load, so don't think that if he writes 50kg, you will let a 50kg child sit on it. Even if the skeleton is not broken, the table may be bent
Therefore, no matter how high it is, try not to challenge it recklessly. "Load value" can only be used as a reference for use safety.
Choose according to the terrain of your camping place.
Many camping chairs in the market pursue "light weight", but it is likely that the stability of the chair is sacrificed when pursuing light weight.
7. Assembly difficulty
Assembly difficulty seems to be less discussed in camping chairs because it is usually easy. However, there is a popular lightweight camping chair recently, which is troublesome in assembly, but the advantage is that it is very small and lightweight after storage, and the disadvantage is that it has poor stability
8. Personal experience
Personal experience is very important! Before you plan to start your own camping chair, you can try your friend's chair. Don't buy a chair by imagination. After all, everyone will experience different comfort.
Some chairs may be suitable for empty daze, but eating, cooking and passionate chat with friends may get stuck in your thighs or make your stomach feel uncomfortable.
