Camping Chairs, Do You Use One?

By Owen Jones

Do you enjoy going camping? A lot of people do, particularly those under forty or those with kids. I am not convinced that it is more male orientated than female, but it is a close call. It could be.

When you go camping, there will normally be a lot of planning done in advance and provisions and equipment will be bought and laid out in readiness for the great journey, whether you drive to the hiking starting point or walk there from your front door. You will have a backpack, of course, food, clothing, a tent, sleeping bags or blankets and every other little thing you should have, but will you take a camping chair?

Yes, you could sit on a fallen tree trunk or a log around the camp fire to chat and do your cooking. You could even sit on the ground or on a blanket, but have you ever stopped to consider how heavy a canvas and aluminium framed camping chair really is? It weighs a pound or two and can hang off the outside of your rucksack or knapsack.

A camping chair can hugely enhance your camping holiday, whether you are going to a camping site or just wandering in nature, but probably even more so in the latter situation. If it is raining or has recently rained, logs, rocks and the ground will be damp. If there are lots of ants about, you will not want to sit on the ground anyway.

What about bugs and other creepy-crawlies? Or snakes even? The fact is that a camping chair does not take up much space, does not weigh much, but can deliver a lot of comfort.

Of course, the more sophisticated the camping chair, the heavier it will be, but you not need much to feel good after a long hike, particularly if the weather was bad. A stool is better than nothing, but I would want something with a back to it; something like a canvas director’s chair the same as you see in movies.

Your camping chair can double as a table, if the weather is fine and you have other places to sit down. If you serve your food on your camping chair you will have fewer problems with ants and other insects. However, the best reason for taking a folding camping chair with you on a camping holiday, is the luxury of being able to take your boots off and lean back in your camping chair with your feet up after you have made camp. It may not be macho, but I like it.
