Best Chairs

Postby gbowman » Sun Jan 28, 2018 6:27 pm

I have been using a folding camp chair but would like to upgrade to something more comfortable. I have thought about building something or just purchasing something. My trailer is 7ft wide. I wanted to see what others have done. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks
Garth

What I use is like a desk chair that has wheels on it so I can roll around inside the trailer,
great to just roll over to the ice chest.

Kind of like what McDave's second choice but for 50% less: http://www.cabelas.com/product/camping/camp-furniture/camp-chairs-stools/pc/104795280/c/104267880/sc/558326880/cabelas-padded-lounger-xl/2416313.uts?slotId=8.

We have a pair of these for outside. They're heavy but we haven't found anything more comfortable.

For a light low cost chair this is fairly comfortable. https://www.harborfreight.com/foldable- ... 62314.html

Those HFT chairs go on sale pretty regularly in the spring at 19.99

Dunno the brand without going outside to look, but I picked up a chair to supplement my HFT chair, it is called the "Big Boy", and is rated to something like 300# and is a big wider. Very comfortable, and the extra wide stance makes it that much more stable on uneven ground. And for fat guys.

Also this chair supports heavier/wider sitters. It sits a little low to the ground but is quite comfortable and stores very compact - so small you can strap it to your day pack while hiking/hunting/fishing and have a comfy spot to rest and keep your butt dry.

I have had several different kinds of chairs. Without a doubt this one is the best. You can sit in it for hours without your back hurting or your thighs being pinched. https://www.strongbackchair.com/product ... -navy-grey

I forgot to mention that they offer discount codes around several of the holidays. If you are interested, get on the mailing list and watch for an email. Last year I think there was a Valentines day sale.

those are the types of chairs i'm using kennethw, they could use a softer seat (i use an insulated cushion when it's cold) and a higher back but otherwise a comfoftable chair

I use a Coleman that is similar to the HFT Chair. https://smile.amazon.com/Coleman-Outpos ... eman+chair
I need to get another because my son keeps stealing it when I get up. The side table is a nice bonus

We use the zero gravity lounger. They are extremely comfortable. We got them from amazon, I looked but cannot remember which one we bought. I think they were about 65 or 75 dollars. You have to pay a little more for the better chairs. We have had ours for about 2 years and they are still in good shape.

Ditto on the zero gravity chairs. We really like them. Very comfortable and they fold up well.
