Quality camp chairs

Other than Oztent King Kokoda, any other high quality camping chairs worth a look? The usual cheapo stuff from Decathlon and Go Outdoors doesn’t seem to last and not that comfy. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

We've had Oztent Kokoda's now for three years. No signs of wear and tear. I would thoroughly recommend them and would definitely buy again. Santorini 90XS SW

As said the Kokoda are the best, but another avenue to look down are fishing chairs the Nash Indulgence Big Daddy is one very good chair.

I struggled to find anything as good as the oztent tho

Oztent it is, maybe. The reason I ask is that I wanted to try before I buy and the only place reasonably near that stock them (4x4 Overlander) might not have any available before my next trip, in three weeks.

Fishing chairs look mega comfy but don’t fold small enough. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

We have the red ones but I think the grey ones pack up smaller.

We are using these
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yellowstone-Castl...00AOLGJ32/
They might look cheap and nasty online but they are a good quality very comfortable chair. We have used these (a lot) for about 8 years or so and they are still going strong.
I was tempted to get some "premium" chairs recently but after all research and test sitting a whole lot of expensive chairs I decided the ones we had were actually much nicer.
What I like about them in particular are the armrests. You can actuially rest your arms on them as opposed to many chairs with soft armrests.

This chair looks almost identical to the King Kokoda to my untrained eye - maybe the padding is a little different, but the frame looks identical

We bit the bullet and bought a pair of the Front Runner chairs that fold up really small and fit in to the 110 for camping
We were pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort as well as the practicality.
Not cheap but well made and practical

This is the problem I have, you pick any style on the market and there will be seemingly similar designs at hugely different prices. It’s nearly impossible to tell if the the Oztent is worth 3x the linked one above without at least seeing them in person, which is proving impossible to do. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

Same as Wyvern and for the same reasons. Been using the Oztent King whatevers for years now but they are quite bulky and take up a fair bit of space in the back. Having refined our camping setup we've also gone for the front runner chairs - surprisingly comfortable and quite compact.

Thumbs up Thumbs Up from me.
