It is very strong with its powder-coated steel frame, just see those numerous support bars. Its bucket type seat fabric is a 420D polyester. They have it in at least two different colors.

The chair folds and unfolds easily so there is no assembly. It folds like an umbrella so the folded size is (L x D) 40 x 6.5 inches (102 x 17 cm). It is very affordable, and it comes with a carry bag included.

As you realize, this is a rocker chair and a very easy to use construction that folds to (L x D) 34 x 10 inches (86 x 25 cm). It has pins on each of its rocking rails, so all you have to do is to unpin them and fold the chair. After that you can store it in its included carry bag.

It has angled solid and padded armrests. The capacity is quite typical, the chair supports up to 300 lb (136 kg). It is a bit on the heavy side with its 11 lb (5 kg) but this is normal for such a type. All in all, it is best suited for places with a car access.

As for the materials, the frame is what they call the Pro-Tec powder-coated steel, and the fabric is their breathable and very suitable for summer camping TechMesh combined with a polyester taffeta. The seat height is 15 inches (38 cm), so this explains the name.

What I like:

  • Ease of use.
  • Carry bag.
  • Price.

What I dislike:

  • A bit heavy.


4. ALPS Mountaineering Camp Chair

This chair is folding, but this is one of those that remain a bit large in two dimensions. It is easy to realize why this is so, you have solid anatomic armrests here and see also the fixed ground bars.

You have a very strong frame made of aluminum and steel, and as a result, the capacity of this chair is impressive 425 pounds (193 kg). With all these features, the chair is very suitable for heavy and/or elderly users. I have included it in my list of outdoor chairs for heavy people.

Note also that the chair is lightly padded. The fabric is a 600D polyester. The seat is not particularly high, it is at 17 inches (43 cm) above ground. There is also a cup holder visible in the picture above.

The weight is moderate, it weighs 10.5 lb (4.76 kg). The feet may look narrow, but you can see from the picture that it has those stabilizing bars very close to the ground. So even if it partly sinks in a soft ground, these bars will prevent any further sinking, and you can use this chair anywhere.

This chair has been on the market for many years, tried and tested by many. See more in this video:

What I like:

  • Very stable.
  • Easy to use.
  • Very durable.
  • Solid armrests.

What I dislike:

  • A bit large when folded.

Final thoughts

So each of these Alps Mountaineering Camping Chairs has something specific that makes it different from the other chairs in the list, and this is on purpose.

If you need a chair for heavy users, you have such options here. But you also have a rocking option, a bucket type folding chair, camping chairs with solid and also with soft armrests, padded and also ventilated mesh chairs, etc.

These are all camping chairs suitable for places with a car access. If this is not enough, there are many more camping chairs presented here in the site, you will find them under the category Camp Gear. In particular, have a look at my list of Coleman camp chairs and also camping chairs with a cooler.
