Item Specifics

The Stylish Camping Full Back Folding Director’s Chair is made from an aluminum frame, which makes this portable chair lightweight.  It folds into a compact size for simple storage.  This camping chair features a side table and accessory pockets attached to the side of the chair.  The dimensions are 23.6"W x 15.7"D x 18.1"L.  The whole back length is 32.7", and the seat width is 20".  When folded, this camping chair measures 18.5" W x 6" D x 32.6" H.  This camping chair is perfect for camping, barbecues, picnics, or any outdoor event.  

Comfortable

If you are looking for a comfortable camping chair, this product is a good choice.  According to customers, it is very comfy to sit on compared to other camping chairs.  Here is one comment about the comfort of this camping chair, "This is a sturdy chair with a very strong fabric...It is so comfortable that I use it inside to watch TV & movies. I would certainly take it camping. In the meantime, I'm using it inside because it is most comfortable. "

Difficult to Carry

Unlike some camping chairs, the Stylish Camping Full Back Folding Director’s Chair does not have a bag or strap to carry on your shoulder.  This means that it is more difficult to carry.  Note that it does have two straps that allow you to carry it in your hand, but this would be uncomfortable if you are carrying it for a long distance.  Here is what one customer had to say, "One thing I wish this chair had is something to carry it easier. It folds up more like a beach chair than a camping chair, but it is longer since it sits higher off the ground. It is almost the perfect hybrid between a camping chair and a beach chair, only without the ease of carting around on hikes. If this item came with a backpack strap it would have been a 5 star for me. It wouldn't be difficult to add a strap."

Nice Cup Holder

This camping chair has a cup holder on the tray.  Customers liked that the cup holder would securely hold their drink in place.  This customer explained, "On a positive note, I thought the cup holder would get in the way, but it turned out to be really useful. Knocking the chair a little or trying to move the chair would have caused most cups on a side table to tip over and spill. The cup holder did an excellent job of making sure cups didn't get knocked over when placed in it and being jarred in some way. "

Tray Is Flimsy

When using the tray on this camping chair, you will need to be extra careful.  Some customers reported that the tray could not hold much weight, and would fall apart if too much pressure was on it.  Here is what one customer thought, "The only downside is that the tray is too fragile. It feels like whatever you put on the tray will slide off, tip over or collapse the tray."

Lightweight

The Stylish Camping Full Back Folding Director's Chair is made from an aluminum frame, which means it is lightweight.  Here is what one customer said about this chair, "I ordered 2 of these chairs to use at picnics etc. They are very comfortable, sturdy and light in weight. The handy side table on one side and organizer on the other are very convenient. They are easy to use and carry since they are light and there is a carry handle at the top. I am very pleased with this purchase."

Cup Holder Cannot Hold Most Standard Sized Drinks

As nice as the cup holder on this camping chair is, it does have some flaws.  Customers were disappointed that the cup holder would only hold paper coffee cups.  Standard sized soda bottles and reusable water bottles would not fit in it.  One customer had this to say, "I was surprised that the build-in drink holder is so small that it doesn't hold a standard 16 oz. soda bottle or my reusable water bottle. So far, I've found that it holds a paper coffee cup or plastic juice cup."

Quick and Easy to Fold

Some folding camping chairs take a while to fold.  Thankfully, this camping chair is not like those camping chairs.  Instead, it folds easily and quickly, and does not take much labor to fold.  While some customers complained that the tray was difficult to fold, the majority of customers liked the foldability of this camping chair.  Here is one of the comments on its folability, "This chair is much easier to transport than the standard-issue fold-up chair most people use at the ball park. Those 'slouch' chairs have to be carefully folded into a cramped carry-bag, and the strings always get tangled. This chair, by contrast, folds up quickly and easily. I don't particularly like the carry-handles on this chair and simply hold it in the middle as I carry it to the car. But it's much quicker to fold up and get to and from the car."

Durable

This camping chair is very durable compared to other camping chairs.  Even if it is left outdoors it will still be in great shape.  This customer explained, "Great chair. Use it for camping and it's just right. Had watched one that sat on a porch in all kinds of weather for over a year and it's still in great shape. In fact, that's what convinced us to purchase two!"

Side Pockets Are a Nice Feature

A nice feature to this chair is the side pockets.  This allows you to store small accessories, such as your phone, pens, magazines, etc.  This customer explained, "This chair is precisely what I was looking for. Owned several 'bag chairs', tough on back and hard to keep score for my son's baseball team...The side table made for a very easily organized placement of drink and score book. The collection of side pockets gave a feel of sitting at home on the couch with room for accessories."

Nice Beach Chair

Customers commented that this camping chair was a great chair to take to the beach.  It didn't sink down into the sand, it held their weight, and it is not as low as beach chairs which means it is easy to get in and out of.  Here is one of the comments, "I'm really happy with this chair. I do a lot of bird-watching and this chair is easy to carry on nature trails and doesn't wobble, so no camera shake. I also carried it onto the beach and there's a really long walk on the sand from boardwalk to water, and because this chair is lightweight, it wasn't a tough walk for me. Plus, the bracers on the bottom don't sink into the sand like camping chairs do, so I didn't have to struggle to get out of the chair with my knees higher than my thighs. Thanks to the design of this lightweight, sturdy chair, it's a win-win for me and all my hobbies."
