    A solid car camping chair!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've had a similar camp chair in terms of the same structural design like this one, however the only difference was that I bought it for probably 10 bucks at Walmart. Didn't last long, wonder why...
    Anyhow, after much toying and going back and forth with what camp chair I wanted, I decided to go with this one, and it doesn't disappoint. It's a very sturdy and durable chair, and quite comfortable too after using it after a long day of doing stuff out in the wilderness. All around, a great car camping chair!

    Very Sturdy for a good price

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These are nice sturdy chairs for the price. They feel like they will last for years. My only compain is that they are very upright and could possibly be more comfortable.

    This is a study chair, which is why it is a bit heavier. It is not the comfiest chair, fit is a little narrow and there's not a lot of give to sink back into. Really like it, but got a different ALPS chair (Full back) and it is much more comfortable.

    sturdy chairs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are some solid and durable chairs. As noted in other reviews, they are much heavier than standard cheap folding camp chairs, but if that's not a critical feature you need, the durability and quality construction are good trade-offs for the weight. A common complaint is also the narrow seat width. I can see what people are saying, but it hasn't been an issue for me. If you need a chair that will accommodate a significantly wider than average body size, this probably isn't your best choice. We've used these chairs for car camping, riverbank fishing, and backyard bonfires. For activities like those, I'd give the chair 5 stars. The bulk and weight make them harder to use for boating or for any activity that requires carrying them along with other gear very far, which is why I gave them 4 stars overall.

    Great for car camping!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I recently purchased two of these chairs for camping and so far we love them! They are easy to get in and out of the carrying bag, they have two cup holders, they are sturdy and they are comfortable! I would definitely recommend these for car camping!


    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    We were looking for a few chairs to use with our camping setup in the Taco. A bit heavy, but if you're not taking it far, then it is a solid choice. The adjustable arm rests are a plus, along with the dual cup holders.

    Slightly heavier, but more durable...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    so it's worth the extra weight. Good for fireside fun or tailgating. Love the 2 cup holders, although I wish they were slightly bigger to hold some larger mugs.

    nice chair

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Durable, makes you sit up straight, I don't like those chairs that makes you feel like your saggin in on the chair. It's height is great so makes it easy to get up and running quickly

    ALPS Mountaineering Big C.A.T chair

      Past experience has led me to Alps Mountaineering for any and all purchases of camping chairs. I chose these as they are relatively compact when folded up and yet extremely heavy duty. Being 6'4" and 220 pounds, I want a chair that I know I can trust not to collapse during use. My main use for these is for trail lunches while out exploring off road in our Jeep, Tthey are plenty comfortable back in the campsite as well. I highly recommend these for any one that is looking for this type of chair.
