Nothing beats plopping down at camp with a cold one after a long day of adventure. Do all your plopping into the ALPS Mountaineering Camp Chair. With the support of a full aluminum frame, the Camp Chair readily holds up to 350 pounds. Padded armrests and a generously sized seat make this a comfy end-of-the-day destination.
- Q & A
Best camp chair ever
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is the most comfortable camp chair we've ever used, period. Definitely for car camping as it takes up room and is on the heavy side, but you won't want to get up and leave the campfire once you are in it.
Bought these chairs based on the reviews. The frame in the front extends beyond the seat so that the backs of my legs (I'm 5'4") are touching hard cold uncomfortable metal . Bummer. They are nice and sturdy, just really uncomfortable to sit in.....especially wearing shorts. I'm guessing the other reviewers have really long legs.
Dad Loves it
I got this chair for my Dad after his Eureka chair fell victim to an over-weight neighbor. He loves this chair and its quality. As a full-time RV'er, having a comfortable chair to set outside is a must for him.
Keep in mind, the weight and lack of carry bag makes this a house or car camping chair only. You would not have fun using this for backpacking.
If you want a chair that will hold up to the rigors of various users and keep you very comfortable, this is a great option.
Great camp chair.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used this on several camping trips, as well as in the yard and even indoors; it is a great chair. Lots of times I will couple the chair with a cooler, creating a pretty nice ottoman set up.
It will take up a bit more room than lots of camping chairs while in transport, but the comfort and overall quality of the build should more than make up for that. I would not hesitate to buy this chair again.

I'm sitting in it right now.

This is an amazing chair. Padded, sturdy armrests, and the lean back factor is second to none. It's definitely a car camping chair, because it's big and heavy, for a folding chair. I use it as a desk chair, it's that comfy.
One suggestion I found out is to put the pieces of the backrest into the slots before unfolding, and fold up slightly before taking them out. This is probably common sense, but there you go. Highly recommended.
My father is 80 years old & has a terrible time getting into & out of standard camping chairs when he comes out to watch my sons football games. He has bad kness and is a large man, does this chair sit higher ? any feedback on handicapped people using this chair with ease?
can I purchase a replacement fabric for a camp
Does the chair material on the back allow for personalizing with embroidery and do they all have the store logo?
Do the feet extend below the lower support bars? I'm looking for a chair to set up inside a tent. I want the weight to be distributed across the bars so the feet have less potential to poke through the tent floor.
One great camp/yard chair
This chair is bomber! I bought it for my dad who has a lot of trouble getting in and out of chairs. This chair is really strong and stable. You don't sink down low, and you can put all your weight on the arm rests and the thing won't budge. It isn't the lights thing out there but not bad for 10 lbs. This is really comfortable to sit in. You sit upright and don't slink down and get all slumped up like a lot of folding chairs. My dad has it set up in the living room when we aren't on an outing because it is as comfortable and easy to get in and out of as any chair in the house. And for you out there, after a few beers following a hard day in the mountains, that's a good thing.
Awesome car-camping chair!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've never liked the usual "bag chairs" - the arm rests generally slide downward until they're unusable; and I always feel like I'm slumped too far down when sitting in one. As a senior citizen, getting out of a bag chair is more difficult, too.
While this chair takes up more room than a bag chair, the ingenious take-apart backrest makes this fold into a compact unit (much smaller than most "director's chairs"). Putting it together is a snap - and it's super-comfy to sit in. It seems very well-made and durable - assuming you don't leave it sitting in the sun to rot out- it should last for years?!
Very sturdy, love the back position and the sturdy arms, very roomy, comfortable, easy to handle, love the green color, your price was very reasonable, the free shipping was greatly appreciated, and I would gladly do business with you again.
It appears that the 'cup holder' could benefit from a more functional design. It's great for small items, cell phone, etc. but I wouldn't trust a cup/can/bottle unless it was sealed.
Thanks for exceeding my expectations and offering great quality and service at affordable and reasonable prices.
