Very expensive, but the most reliable and versatile chair. It is capable of not only folding, but also rotating! As a result, you will be able to feel like you are in a computer chair in the field!
This travel chair is as stable as possible. He stands on the ground with four metal legs. It is impossible to lose balance in it. When folded, the dimensions of the chair are 11x11x40.3 cm. Not so much. But the weight cannot be called tiny – it reaches 1.4 kg. Therefore, the chair will find a place in the trunk or in the back seat of a car, but not in a tourist's backpack.
If the chair is unfolded, then its dimensions will be 49.5x50x101.5 cm. It seems that almost any adult man will fit in it. Even a very well-fed one, since the manufacturer declared a permissible load of 120 kg. By the way, 600D polyester is used as a fabric. Many backpacks are made from about the same fabric.
Perhaps this is the perfect folding chair for outdoor use. You can only complain about the price. Which of the inhabitants of our country agrees to give 5 thousand rubles for a relatively small chair?
- Supplied with a case;
- Rotation is available;
- Maximum stability;
- Convenient foldable design;
- It can support even a very serious weight;
- Quality fabric.
- Very high cost;
- No backrest
Green Glade 89x88x49 cm
This touring chair does not involve the rotation of the person sitting in it. But he is able to boast of the presence of at least some armrests and a very large stand on the right. This countertop can accommodate both a bottle of beer and a plate of cooked fish. Very comfortably! It should be noted that it is made of wood, it is impossible to make a claim against it.
A person of almost any size can sit on such a chair. The manufacturer said that his creation will withstand even a 150-kilogram load. And there is no point in not believing him. The fact is that the chair is made of high-strength materials. In fact, the creators used steel pipes with a diameter of 25 mm with a polymer coating. The downside of this solution is the large weight of the chair – it is 7 kg. However, it was immediately clear that this was not a product for a hiker. Only motorists will take such a chair with them. It will also look great in the country.
When it comes to fabric, it uses polyester type 240D. It is additionally equipped with foam padding. There is a mesh mesh on the back of the chair. Chair buyers won't let anyone lie: sitting on it is incredibly comfortable. More comfort can only be experienced while sitting on the couch or in the computer chair.
If you want to save some money, there is a more budget version of this chair. Most of all, it is distinguished by the absent table.
- Very modest folded size;
- There is a mesh mesh;
- High quality polyester is used;
- Able to withstand a very difficult person;
- Complemented with a folding table;
- Provides maximum comfort.
- Very heavy weight;
- High price.
Envision Comfort Chair 5 Plus
This folding chair has a very interesting design. It allows the person to be in a semi-recumbent position. This feature is very useful if you are going to rest for a long time – some people may even take a nap.
This tourist chair is made of a metal alloy, which explains its rather high cost. The manufacturer claims that his creation will withstand even a 100-kilogram load. He should be trusted, because the product collects only positive reviews, which do not mention any breakdowns. The chair itself weighs 4 kg. A very decent value. But no one doubted that this model was not intended for use by backpackers.
Interestingly, the Envision Comfort Chair 5 Plus is not just about reclining. The backrest angle can be adjusted, so the chair will come in handy even if you decide to celebrate the fish catch. Also here you can adjust the height of the legs, like a tripod. This suggests that the chair can be positioned even on very uneven surfaces.
The fabric used here is 600D Oxford polyester. You can be sure of its quality. As with the whole chair. It is ideal for outdoor recreation or fishing. It can also be found at the dachas of some people. This is the case when the product has no particular flaws. However, someone will definitely say that the armrests would not interfere with the chair. And the price will definitely not suit everyone.
- The chair turned out to be strong and reliable;
- Easy to fold;
- The backrest can be adjusted;
- The height of each leg can be changed;
- High quality polyester is used.
- High price;
- No armrests;
- The chair is not light.
Walkstool Comfort 45 L
Are you willing to pay as much money as you like for a folding chair? In this case, it makes sense to consider the option of purchasing Walkstool Comfort 45 L. This product is delivered in a carrying case. It is extremely simple. There is no backrest or folding table. The manufacturer even reduced the number of legs to three! Strictly speaking, this is the main advantage of this model. The fewer the legs, the less the weight of the travel chair.
Get ready. This is very hard to believe. The weight of this chair is 825 g! It is not surprising that Walkstool Comfort 45 L finds its place even on hiking trips, as well as on multi-day cycling trips. The size of a tourist chair is also very small. The folding design allowed to reduce them. Here, each leg is telescopic, due to which its height is reduced from 45 to 25 cm. At the same time, there is no need to assume that the chair will fall apart at the very first opportunity when someone in any way sits on it. The manufacturer claims that the product will withstand even a 200 kg load! Wonders!
By the way, the name reflects the height of the chair when unfolded. There are slightly higher modifications. Those who do not care about the weight of this product should look in their direction.
The legs of this model have rubber pads. As for the seat, it was made of mesh material. There is no doubt that the chair will definitely not cause discomfort. He will only make you worry about the money spent. The fact is that the Swedish manufacturer asks for over 9 thousand rubles. This is some kind of wild money for which you can buy, for example, a huge tent. It is not surprising that there are practically no reviews on the Walkstool Comfort 45 L on the Russian-speaking Internet – a rare resident of our country is able to spend such an amount on a folding tourist chair.
- It turned out to be unusually light;
- Able to withstand a 200 kg load;
- Has a very modest size;
- High quality mesh material is used;
- Supplied with a case.
- Astronomical price tag;
- Someone will complain about the lack of a back;
- No armrests.
PALISAD Camping 69591
Do you have a private home with a swimming pool nearby? In this case, it makes sense to buy a folding chair with armrests. For example, they are equipped with PALISAD Camping 69591. It allows you to have plenty of rest, soaking up the sun. At the same time, unfolding it will not take much work – usually this action takes only a few seconds.
This folding chair is not designed to withstand gigantic loads. It uses fairly thin polyester, so only a 90-kilogram load is declared as maximum. It is also recommended that this chair is tucked away under a canopy when it rains. Even not because of the fabric, but because of the metal frame – it can corrode.
The folded dimensions of this product are 5x51x69 cm. This means that the chair can easily fit anywhere behind the cabinet. In the unfolded state, he is able to fit on himself even a very tall person.
In fact, PALISAD Camping 69591 is nothing unusual. This is a regular D-legged folding chair that requires a level floor. It is not surprising that they only ask for 1000 rubles for it. It is the best choice for any vacation home, but the average option for camping. By the way, the weight of the product is 2.4 kg. Even a fragile girl can put it in the car!
- Reliable construction;
- Very low folded thickness;
- There are several color options;
- Very low cost;
- There are armrests.
- It may not seem very convenient in nature;
- Not intended for very heavy people.
Nika Premium 3
Another relatively inexpensive folding chair. Usually it is sold for 1,700 rubles, but during sales there is also a noticeably lower price tag. It is already felt here that the manufacturer was guided by the fact that his creation will be used during field trips. In this regard, the product received both a decent reliability and a nice appearance.
The weight of this model is 2.35 kg. This does not allow us to recommend buying it for hiking. But when traveling to nature by car, the chair will show itself in the best way. In the trunk, it will not take up much space, since the folded dimensions of the product are only 77x17x17 cm.
As befits a quality touring chair, Nika Premium 3 boasts a metal frame. The already familiar polyester is used as a fabric. All this makes it possible to understand that the chair will withstand even a well-fed person with some obesity. Indeed, the manufacturer has declared a 100 kg maximum load.
Probably one of the best folding chairs for fishing use. It can also be placed near the vegetable garden, enjoying the rest during the break between sowing. It's nice that the manufacturer hasn't forgotten about the cover – the chair is recommended to be transported over long distances in it. But he hadn't thought about the armrests. Too bad the chair would be perfect with them.
- Easy to fold;
- Not particularly high cost;
- Able to withstand a serious load;
- Long service life;
- The set includes a cover;
- There are two color options.
- No armrests.
Norfin Sandnes NF Alu 22x20x27 cm
One of the smallest folding chairs. To reduce the size, the manufacturer had to abandon the backrest. But this will seem scary only to those who are determined to have a long rest in their chair. If you are going to take a chair on a hike, then it will only benefit you. You will also appreciate the case that comes with the kit. This makes it even easier to transport the chair, and also protects it from all kinds of scratches.
The product sold for 2 thousand rubles was created from aircraft aluminum. That is why the chair is extremely lightweight. It's hard to believe, but the scales under it show only 300 g! It might seem that such a chair should be incredibly fragile. However, it is not. Aluminum itself is capable of supporting a very serious weight. Well, and completing the joyful picture is 900D polyester – a very durable fabric that can only be damaged with a knife. As a result, the chair can withstand a 120 kg load without any problems.
And let's briefly go over the numbers of interest to many. When folded, a tourist chair measures 26x14x4 cm. Such a product can be thrown somewhere, then completely forgetting exactly where it is now. In the unfolded state, the dimensions increase to 20x22x27 cm.
Of course, this model is still not ideal. As mentioned above, it is not intended for a long and comfortable stay, because there is no backrest or armrests.
- The most durable polyester is used;
- Can fit in a backpack;
- Complete with a cover;
- Huge maximum load declared;
- Tiny weight;
- Easy to fold.
- No back and armrests;
- The chair turned out to be quite small;
- Some specimens are fragile.
One of the most unusual touring chairs in our selection. In fact, it is a complete travel bag that includes a folding chair! A very interesting idea! Let down only its implementation. If you are going to take this chair on a hike, then you will be disappointed. The backpack is sewn very sloppy, and its locks cannot withstand any serious load. And the length of the straps is short here. That is why we recommend the purchase of the Irit IRG-504, for example, to anglers. They can throw gear and other accessories into a bag, and then throw it all into the trunk of a car.
Despite the presence of a full-fledged backpack, the product was neither heavy nor expensive. If we talk about weight, then it does not even reach 800 g. As for the cost, in most Russian online stores they ask for only 700 rubles for this model.
The bag is made of 600D Oxford polyester. There are no complaints about the fabric. As we have already mentioned, there are only complaints about sewing – it is felt that not very professional seamstresses work at the manufacturer's factory (or they are paid little, which is not surprising given such a price tag for a chair). Additionally, the backpack is equipped with a PVC coating. It seems that even a light rain will not hurt him. But the downpour will definitely soak everything inside.
As for the chair, steel tubes with a wall thickness of 0.6 mm were used for its production. It seems that this is very small. But the chair's creators declared support for the 100-kilogram load. They want to believe, and the reviews do not say that this chair could not stand under someone.
- Includes a full backpack;
- The bag is made of thick fabric;
- The weight cannot be called any great;
- Low cost;
- Withstands a very serious load.
- Very sloppy tailoring;
- The straps are too short;
- Locks that are not very reliable;
- The dimensions of the backpack and chair are very small.
Looking for a folding outdoor chair that can handle even a very heavy person? In this case, we recommend considering the option of purchasing 'Cedar SSM-02'. This chair stands on two D-shaped legs, it is maximum capable of withstanding a 120 kg load. It also has a backrest. As you have already noticed, not every folding chair can boast of it.
This model cannot be called particularly high. But it is not very small either, because the height from the floor to the seat here is 40 cm.The dimensions of the seat are 32×30 cm.As for the backrest, its height reaches a completely sane 32 cm.
The manufacturer of this chair did not strive by all means to reduce the weight of his creation. Therefore, he opted for a frame made of steel pipes with a diameter of 22 mm. There is no doubt that such pipes must withstand even the most difficult person. The same can be said about the fabric used here – 600D Oxford polyester. The total weight of the structure is 2280 g. Not that much, especially if you are going to transport the chair in the trunk or in the back seat of a car. The dimensions are also adequate – they are 53x46x8 cm.
It remains to add that this product is available in two colors. As for the price, they usually ask for 700 rubles or even a little less for a chair. Unsurprisingly, demand exceeds supply at certain times of the year.
- Able to withstand a 120 kg load;
- Modest folded dimensions;
- There is a back;
- Very low cost;
- Thick fabric is used.
- No armrests;
- The weight is not tiny.
Kingcamp four legs
Above, we talked about the tripod chair. However, it was an extremely compact, lightweight and very expensive model. If you are not chasing records, but you are going to go to nature by car, then KingCamp Four Legs will suit you. Here, however, not three, but four legs are used. But they are located in a similar way. Above them is a seat measuring 340×340 mm. It is located at a height of 460 mm. Seat covered with 600D Oxford polyester. This is a very dense fabric, which also has a PVC coating.
The frame of the touring chair is made of steel. Not particularly thick, judging by the weight of 1.5 kg. The folding mechanism is very convenient. Moreover, there is even a carrying handle, which is also good news! In short, you are unlikely to regret the money spent. And I must say that sellers are not asking for a very large sum – in our review, much more expensive models of chairs were also mentioned.
- Includes a carrying handle;
- Not very high cost;
- Good stability even on uneven ground;
- The frame is made of high quality steel;
- Thick PVC coated fabric.
- The back would not hurt;
- The manufacturer does not report the maximum load.
Many inexpensive folding chairs are available in multiple colors. ECOS 993064, sold for 400 rubles, is no exception to the rule. It can be blue or green. Some other options are not excluded, but most often online stores are filled with them.
This touring chair is designed for not very heavy people. The fact is that its frame was created from not very thick metal. As a result, breakage can occur after a person weighing over 80 kg sits on a chair. And it is the frame that will break, since the polyester used here is able to withstand a noticeably more serious load.
The thin metal has a positive effect on the weight of the chair itself. It is only 0.6 kg. Against the background of some brothers, the product looks like a fluff. In theory, such a chair could find a place in the backpack of a person who went on a multi-day hike. But in such cases, it is better to take an even more compact product with you, even if it will be devoid of a back. Here it is present, which is why the folded chair does not seem very small. Therefore, most often this model is bought for long trips, and not for hiking. Also ECOS 993064 is often used by anglers. They can only complain about the lack of armrests, which would make the landing even more comfortable. Another obvious disadvantage is the fact that the chair is supplied without a cover. Because of this, he can get certain damage in the trunk of the car, albeit minor.
It remains to add that the dimensions of the seat are 32×28 cm, and it is at a comfortable 58 cm height.
- Used polyester 600D;
- Very low cost;
- Easy folding;
- Decent size;
- Very light weight;
- There are two to three color options.
- May not be able to withstand an overly severe load;
- Supplied without cover;
- No armrests.
This touring chair boasts the fastest and most comfortable folding. You will have to pay for this not so much by the price as by the absence of a backrest and armrests. But you will have a very nice chair. ATEMI ASC-110 is a rare case when the metal frame is painted in anything other than black.
The dimensions of this model are 24x24x28 cm. The weight does not exceed 450 g. This is an impressive result! It was achieved, among other things, through the use of not particularly dense polyester. It is interesting that he shows himself remarkably even in the rain. The fact is that the manufacturer has provided the fabric with a water-repellent coating.
Can I take this chair with me on a hiking or cycling trip? Perhaps yes, if its weight suits you. The folded dimensions of the chair are 34x7x7 cm. Even photo tripods seem to take up more space. It's nice that with such dimensions, ATEMI ASC-110 is able to boast of resilience in front of very difficult people. The maximum aluminum frame is capable of withstanding a 100 kg load! In a word, it is unlikely that you will be sorry for the 700 rubles that are asked for this model.
- Polyester finished with a water-repellent coating;
- The chair is able to withstand the most severe stress;
- Very light weight;
- When folded, it has a very modest size;
- Easy to fold;
- Nice appearance.
- No backrest;
- Supplied without cover.
Green Glade PC330
Our selection ends with one of the most inexpensive chairs. In Russian stores, this model is usually asked for only 450 rubles. In this regard, one should not be surprised at its simplifications. The creators even tried to use as little fabric as possible. This is clearly visible on the back, which contains a modest piece of polyester.
It should be noted that the back is at least present here, in contrast to the several competitors mentioned above. Also, many will like the fact that the color of the fabric can be different – at least three options are available in total. The easy folding of the chair is also pleasing – it takes three to four seconds.
The frame used here was made from steel. Each tube has a diameter of 16 mm, in addition to this, they have a polymer coating that protects the material chosen by the manufacturer from weather adversity. The frame must withstand a 90-kilogram load – this is the figure stated in the characteristics.
The dimensions of the chair when unfolded are 73x43x32 cm. Decent figures. That is why Green Glade PC330 is often bought in order to put it near the pool. It is rarely taken somewhere in nature. However, the chair will fit in the car for sure, because when folded it becomes noticeably smaller, and its weight of 1.7 kg will definitely not cause any trouble.
- There are at least three color options available;
- Easy to fold;
- Good fabric is used;
- Very low cost;
- There is a polymer coating;
- There is a back.
- May not withstand a serious load;
- No armrests;
- The dimensions cannot be called very small.
Now you know which folding touring chairs are the best. Of course, we have considered only those models that you can safely buy in Russian online stores. It seems to us that even the perfect chair does not deserve to be ordered from abroad, because of this it faces a number of difficulties.
