Ozark Trail Foldable Compact Mesh Camping Chair

That popularity has been bolstered by social media, with collections of the cups, including rarities, being shared for clicks or to build common ground in the online community. Cara has a Bachelor’s Degree from Northwestern State University, with a background in writing about food, culture, and beauty. Note that some reviewers mention these run on the smaller size, but they are designed to hold up to 225 lbs.

It has a handle you can hold while savoring your favorite beverage, which conveniently folds in against the cup for streamlined storage. Over 7,400 shoppers have taken this French press along on camping trips. Most of our testers found the REI Co-op Skyward Chair to be one of the least comfortable chairs in our testing pool. People who did like it tended to have smaller body types, so if you find that other camping chairs are too big for you, the Skyward might be a good fit. At a little over 7 pounds, it’s also the lightest traditional chair we tested—but it had the lowest weight capacity (250 pounds).

The REI Co-op Flexlite Camp Chair and the Flexlite Air (its featherweight sibling) are lighter than any other chairs in their category, but they felt less steady. We blame the crossbar design, which runs front to back rather than side to side; this creates a lot of wobble from right to left, especially if the chair is not on perfectly even ground. Its base design is the same as for other variations, the Flexlite Camp Dreamer and Flexlite Camp Boss. Similar to the Coleman Cooler Quad Chair in size, the Ozark Trail Oversized Mesh Camp Chair with Cooler was far less comfortable, with rough-feeling polyester that was obviously of lower quality.

This tumbler comes in a variety of colors, including a hot pink which matches the Stanley Tumbler’s Cosmo Pink at just $19.97. Wirecutter is the product recommendation service from The New York Times. Our journalists combine independent research with (occasionally) over-the-top testing so you can make quick and confident buying decisions. Whether it’s finding great products or discovering helpful advice, we’ll help you get it right (the first time). The Helinox Chair One is the best chair for anyone who needs a lightweight, portable chair. Although they might lack the style that comes with the name brand, a number of off-brand options can be found attached to much lower price tags.

It’s currently low in stock, but REI tells us this chair will be widely available again over the summer. This GCI camping chair fits the bill and then some, as it’s not just your standard camping chair — it also rocks. It’s made of lightweight, durable nylon and has a sturdy steel frame.

“[It’s] very good at keeping ice and drinks cold,” writes one shopper who took this cooler when they went camping for three days. This cooler is a great option when you feel the urge to go adventuring. Testers preferred the Coleman chair’s thoughtfully placed mesh storage pouch over those of its competitors. This pouch is big enough to stow gear like a phone, book, or tablet. Of the chairs we tested, the Coleman chair was the only one that came with a built-in cooler bag, which can hold four standard-size beer or soda cans. The chair also has the round mesh cupholder found on most chairs of this type.

It’s a no-brainer to drop this handy $35 camping essential in your shopping cart. It can hold a lot of supplies, and it’s easy to carry and set up. The King Kong chair has two cupholders and intuitively placed ozark trail wagon storage pouches under each armrest; unlike the Coleman chair, though, this one doesn’t have a cooler pouch. There’s also a mesh pocket behind the backrest, to hold things you don’t need to access quickly.

Our testers consistently said the King Kong chair was the most heavy-duty-feeling model of all the chairs we tested. You’ll soon be sleeping under the stars in this camping hammock that’s only $32 right now. This hammock stretches out to 9 feet long and is 4.5 feet wide, so there’s plenty of space for one person to lounge around in. Despite its nice size, it folds down into the size of an eggplant according to the brand, and slides easily into its included storage bag, so you can toss it into your backpack or with other camping gear. It’s made of rip-resistant parachute nylon and easily attaches to trees with two 9-foot straps and carabiners.
