Chairs

Postby markcrook » Fri May 01, 2009 2:20 pm

Ok similar to my last thread on Gas Lanterns - what chairs do you take when you are camping?

We need to replace two and want something a bit more comfortable, maybe reclining?

Not always PL...although I always buy expensive chairs but I have seen others outlast them.

I currently have the top of the range in the Coleman which also reclines and have had it for some time. It is quite comfy but I found the seat fill went in it very early. I have added another piece of cushion and a very thick lambswool.

Ya softy. :***

I have the model down from yours in the Coleman but mine don't recline (I'm not old enough to need a recliner yet. Hehehehehe) and they have to be the best chairs I have ever owned. Mine is also padded but have had no problems yet with the padding going. Must admit I do like the Coleman Products.

This is mine

We have a couple of Coleman mesh panel chairs. A nice comfy chair & cool in the summer. Cost us about $50 from BCF.

Sounds like another trip to BCF! Woo hoo :armsup

Try some out for comfort and size, I quite like the idea of a recliner and I am relativley young! The more padded chairs seems to be the way to go. May need to save a bit though!

I have the above chair also and is still going strong after a few years ... and I'm loving the reclining bit for my poor old tired bones ;)

We have a couple of cheap nylon folding chairs, that collapse and go into a long 'round' carry bag. They are not the most comfortable things in the world but they do the job and fit nicely into the truck when it's packed up.

Without hijacking the thread - do the recliner types fold up flat or into a cylinder shape?

I have a cheapy collapsable type one that goes into a long skinny bag and hubby has a recliner one.

We use directors chairs with fold out side table - Kookaburra Brand and have been using them for 4 years and they have stood up well.

I have been through 5 different chairs trying to find "the one" that is comfortable and practical. I've had a 5 position recliner from Rays that broke, a general camping chair, a flimsy moon chair etc. Space IS an issue otherwise I'd have had the coleman recliner (but then there's the draft of cold from the side). I then saw this at Anaconda and have never been happier. Haven't seen it back at Anaconda yet and mine was the only left when I bought it. I swear by my Kookarburra Moon chair. It's is sooooo comfortable and you can move around in different positions in it. The main reason I love it, besides being comfortable, is that the cold breeze at night doesn't get your back or hips or sides. It catches the heat from the fire in front. It's quite the envy of friends. If I get out for a second, someone's in it.
Rays Outdoors currently have one like this in black but with more padding (too hot for summer).
A good chair is VERY important coz I'm in it for hours on end when camping. Ya gotta be comfortable.

No Derek, mine is a plain dark colour and is slightly wider than the stripe ones and not as tall in the back.

My mum has one of these and it makes a noise every time she sits or moves in it.
