Best Camp Chair 2021

In today’s review we are going to be taking a look at my pick for the best camp chair of 2021. There were three camp chairs I tested last season. I will touch on size, weight, capacity, and cost, as well as my impressions about each chair and how to set them up. I tested these chairs over the course of last summer (2021) on several camping trips as well as while remodeling my Airstream (links in this article may be affiliate links, if you purchase an item through these links I may earn a small commission that helps support the channel).

Hillsound Ultralight Camping Stool

Specs at a Glance:

  • 17 inches tall
  • 14.6 oz
  • 240 lb capacity
  • Comfortable
  • Ultralight
  • Cost: $58-70 Amazon

The Hillsound Ultralight Camping Stool is an awesome addition to your backpacking kit. It truly is ultralight, weighing in at only 14.6 ounces for the 17 inch tall version. The weight capacity is 240 pounds (108 kg). It is very easy to assemble (see video above for demonstration) and packs down very small.

The Hillsound Camping Stool has high quality constryction and packaging. It will last a long time and you will only have to buy it once as long as you take care of it. I would recommend this stool for anyone who needs a lightweight chair for the trail. It wouldnt be comfortable to sit on for long periods of time, but would work when backpacking to eat or relax.

CLIQ Camping Chair

Specs at a Glance:

  • Size of a water bottle (def a bit bigger)
  • 3.5 pounds (1.6 kg)
  • 300 lb (136 kg) capacity
  • A bit bulky
  • Cost: $99
  • Has a cool carrying case that you can purchase

The CLIQ camping chair is the heaviest chair I tested, coming in at 3.5 pounds (1.6 kg). It has a weight capacity of 300 pounds (136 kg). CLIQ chair’s entire marketing scheme is that the chair is the size of a water bottle. Well, I have to say that it would be a very large water bottle, not your standard 16.9 ounce. Perhaps a liter sized bottle? That being said, the CLIQ camp chair has very high quality construction and opens easily (see video above for demonstration).

Is the CLIQ Camp Chair worth $99? I would say no. But, I can see how they get away with charging almost one hundred dollars. It is a quality product and very convenient. I wouldn’t buy another chair, but this chair will be nice to have in the back of the truck to use around a campfire or while tailgating.

Trekology Camp Chair

Specs at a Glance:

  • When assembled it measures 28 in high, 19 inch wide, 12 inch deep
  • 2.1 pounds with bag
  • 300 pound (136 kg) capacity
  • A bit bulky
  • Cost: $40

The Trekology Camp Chair was the first camp chair I purchased on this list. It is middle of the road as far as weight, coming in at 2.1 pounds (1 kg). It has a 300 pound (136 kg) weight capacity and is very comfortable. This chair is the least expensive chair on this list, but the low cost is not a reflection of the quality. The chair is well constructed and easy to assemble (see video above for demonstration). Something this chair has that the others do not are side pockets. These pockets will fit the largest smartphone with ease and I found myself using the pockets for just that purpose very often.

Final Thoughts Best Camp Chair

Best Camping Camp Chair: Trekology Camp Chair because low cost, high comfort, and pockets for phone on the sides. This was the only chair on this list with side pockets and I found them to be very convenient.

Best Backpacking Camp Chair: Hillsound Ultralight Camping Stool because ultralight weight, packability, and high quality construction. I would bring this on the trail with me anytime I go on a hike

Best Extra Chair to have Laying Around: The CLIQ Camping Chair is cool, having several on these on hand with the carrying case would be nice for extra guests because it isn’t too heavy, but for camping or backpacking it is too heavy. I also think it is overpriced.
