If you are wanting a comfortable chair, this camping chair is a good choice. A lot of customers were pleased at how comfortable this chair was compared to other cheap camping chairs. Here is one of those comments, “I’ve had the chair for about a month now, and I’m super happy with it. I’ve seen other reviewers saying it’s heavy to carry, but I don’t think it’s that bad. It’s the sturdiest folding chair I’ve ever used, and it’s so comfortable. I took it on vacation to a cabin in the mountains and the chair was so comfortable my family members were bringing it inside at night to sit around the fireplace and watch movies (not quite enough couches for all of us that were there). That should say it all.”
If you will need to hike far with your camping chair, or if you have a small car, this camping chair may not be for you. A lot of customers complained that this chair was very big, and took up most of their car trunk space. Also, some customers said that this was very heavy to carry. While the carry bag and handle make this camping chair portable, it is too heavy for some people. This customer explained, “Yes, it’s very comfortable and the price can’t be beat, but I think I had imagined this to be slightly smaller and more portable. I’m 5’7″/ 145 lbs, so it looks fairly huge for me and my S.O., but it’s very comfortable. I got a pair for car camping and a singular packed chair is perhaps larger than our packed-up tent. It’s definitely too heavy for any camping where you hike in very far. I just think I might have been better with less comfort and more portability.”
Comes with Two Cup Holders
Customers liked that this camping chair came with two cup holders and a pouch for holding items. The cup holders are two different sizes, which means you could fit a larger drink and a smaller drink in this camping chair. Some customers wished the cup holders were a little deeper and that the mesh organizer pouch was made of durable material, but this was not a major complaint. Overall, the cup holders and pouch received great reviews. Here is what one customer thought, “I love the little cup holders and the little organizer that hangs off the seat (will be so great for my phone and reading glasses). They are made of netting material, so I don’t know how long they would hold up to heavy use, we’ll see how it goes.”
Each Color Has a Different Price
Unlike some camping chairs that have all the colors be sold at the same price, this product sells each color at a different price. Some customers were disappointed about that, because when they had found the color they liked they had to pay a higher price. Customers suggested to buy the cheapest color, if you don’t mind that it is not your color preference. A customer explained this way, “Great Folding Chair! Got the red because it’s the same chair for $10 less. If you are not too picky about the color save some $$ I’m a big guy (6′ 5″ 230lb) and this chair fits me just fine. I like that the seat part does not sag too much when you are in it.”
Comes with a Carry Bag and Carry Strap
The Kijaro Dual Lock Portable Camping and Sports Chair comes with a carry bag and carry strap, which makes this camping chair easier to carry. While the carry bag is a nice addition to this camping chair, customers liked that the carry strap allows you to carry the chair without putting it in the bag. Here is what one customer had to say, “These are the perfect chairs for watching sporting events or car camping. They are very comfortable and easy to relax in. There is a shoulder strap built into the chair itself (not just the bag) which makes it easy to pick up and move to another spot without having to store it back in the bag.”
Some Customers Said the Chair Broke
Some customers said that this camping chair was breaking. Each experience was slightly different for each customer, but overall it was the bolts of the camping chair that was breaking. Here is one of the comments, “I really wanted to love this chair. I did several searches on the internet to find the best camping chair, and this was what I found. I like the design, and the chair is comfortable. However, for the price, the quality just isn’t that great. After only a few uses (using the chair just in my backyard, no rugged landscape), two bolts came out of the chair, rendering the chair useless. My husband (whom I bought this as a gift for) was able to make a temporary fix but it took time and effort, when for the price nothing should have come apart in the first place.”
Doesn’t Hurt Your Legs
Some camping chairs can push on your legs, and therefore make sitting uncomfortable. Fortunately, this camping chair is not like that. It is very comfortable to sit in, and will not push against your legs. A customer shares her thoughts, “I purchased two of these chairs (one for me and one for my husband). We currently use the Tommy Bahama chairs at our sons baseball games, while they are nice chairs, they are a little low to the ground. These chairs are SO comfortable! I like that it doesn’t dip in the center of the seat where your legs go. Most of these types of chairs crush your legs and are just not comfortable for long periods.”
Has a Dual Lock System
This camping chair features a dual lock system. This means that when you open the chair to sit in it, the chair will lock out and prevent the chair from collapsing. When you fold the chair, the dual lock will lock it in, and therefore keep the chair from unfolding. To lock or unlock the chair, you press a quick release button. While some customers were annoyed that each time you had to press the button, most of the customers liked the dual lock. Here is one of those comments, “I think the coolest feature of these chairs is the fact that they are dual lock. There is a small locking mechanism that locks the chair into place when they are folded up and when they are folded out. Its a quick release button you press when you need to unlock them which is very easy to use.”
Easy to Get in and out of
The height of this chair is perfect according to customers. Unlike some camping chairs that are difficult to get in and out of, this chair is tall enough to allow you to stand right up. Customers who had trouble getting in and out of chairs commented that this camping chair was just what they needed. Here is one of those comments, “I haven’t used this chair much, but it is terrific! I have trouble getting out of chairs that are too low and/or the saggy kind. This one has a higher seat than most and the seat is firm, plus it doesn’t tip as I lean forward to get up. The arms are also sturdy enough to actually use to help me get up, although with the seat height and firmness, that isn’t such an issue.”
