Camping chairs can be one of the trickiest pieces of gear to get just right. Over the years we’ve tried lots. Many are simply uncomfortable, some seem to be built as disposable items, while others leave little room in your 4WD to pack much else.
Over the last few years, we’ve been extensively using the Snow Peak Low Chair. It’s an impressive chair, so we were keen to see if Snow Peak’s Red Folding Chair was equally good.
The Snow Peak Red Folding Chair is designed in a simple director style, and it’s surprisingly comfortable and supportive. This chair is higher off the ground than their Low Chair, and slightly more upright, which some people may prefer.
The chair is well built with an aluminium tubing frame, cast zinc joints, and durable canvas seating. They’re durable, much like the rest of Snow Peak‘s gear.
By folding the back down, and then the arms outward, these chairs are quickly stowed. A button holds the arms closed, and there is a convenient webbing carry handle up top.
They weigh 3.5kg and when stowed they measure 690mm x 580 mm x 110mm.
The Snow Peak Red Folding Chair is one of their most entry level chairs from a price point, but it’s an impressively simple and comfortable piece of gear.
