Although I may be right into the Great Outdoors, that doesn’t always mean that I’m prepared to leave all my creature comforts behind! Any camping trip that runs longer than a night or two needs to be well prepared for, and so when I headed off on a recent trip to Fort William with the family for an extended break, I reckoned that comfort was in, and mere survival was unnecessary. And it was with that thought in my head that I packed a variety of additional equipment that I wouldn’t normally strap to my back…like these fabulous Colemans Standard Quad Chairs.
While these easy to use and lightweight to carry chairs may not exactly fall into the concept of ‘glamping’ (glamourous camping for those of you not yet in the know…), they certainly elevated my trip to something of a more comfortable nature. We had our megasized tent erected in a little under twelve hours (see image below…lol!) and settled down for an evening meal and a relaxing drink or two.
One of the features of this Colemans Chair that I really liked, was the drinks holder in the right arm, a very handy little pocket that meant I could sit comfortably without having to stretch too far to retrieve my beverage. It’s also great for keeping drinks stable, rather than balancing them on the dubiously wobbly plastic camping table we had along as well.
The back rest on this folding Quad Chair seems higher than most camping chairs, and it was great to be able to sit back and relax properly. Plus, the wider seat means that there’s no constant shuffling for comfort.
Just as an aside…when folded, these chairs come in a material carry case that sports a great shoulder strap and means carrying them is fairly easy. I go to a lot of spectator events that don’t always have a lot of seating, so this chair has just become my new best friend!
