3 Best Double Camping Chairs

Hey there campers and welcome to my post where we will check out my three best double camping chairs for some couple style relaxation this year.  As we know, for some of us camping is an experience that is best shared with a partner – especially when relaxing around the campfire. 

This is where a double – or two person camping chair can assist in giving you both a place to sit, have a chat and a snuggle.  And not to mention the added advantage of only having to pack one chair too.  So for those of you looking to get in on the partner camping fun, I have had a good look around and come up with three decent options below.  Let’s check them out…

My three recommended double camping chairs

I will review these in more detail below however if you want to get moving without all the carry-on, my recommended products are listed here for your convenience:

What are double camping chairs?

A double camping chair is essentially the same as a normal option in that it is lightweight and foldable with a canvas seat and backrest that can seat two people side by side.

Because it is portable and easy to set up, this type of camping chair is appropriate for use in temporary quarters, typically outdoor settings such as camping, picnics or on vacation. and of course they make for a great gift as well.

What should you be looking for?

The following should be considered as you look for a good double folding chair for your camping needs.

  1. Comfort
  2. Portability
  3. Weight capacity
  4. Chair height
  5. Stability
  6. Additions

Comfort

I mean – what is the point of it if it is not comfortable.  And because our primary focus is travel and camping, the chair should be comfortable enough to be carried and used outside.

Also, consider the support your preferred double camping chair provides, such as the height of the back, legs, cushioning, armrest, reclining and so on.  Basically think about what you like in a normal chair and make sure the double one has that as well.

Portability

Portability is essential if you are buying a product for camping, backpacking or traveling so of course the same can be said for the couple camping chair.  It should be lightweight, foldable and take up as little space as possible in in transit.

The metal should be strong enough for durability and the fabric and frame should be thin enough to take up little space when folded. An additional carry strap on the chair will improve things here as well.

Weight capacity

A large seat means that your weight is evenly distributed over a larger area however it is still important to consider the weight difference between you and your partner when selecting a stable double camping folding chair that supports both occupants.  Oh, and of course you will need to ensure that it can handle your combined weight as well.

Chair height

The chair’s height refers to how far the bottom of the seat is from the ground.  For greatest comfort,  avoid buying a chair with your legs hanging in the air – it may feel suitable for a while, but you’ll want to rest your feet on the ground.

And of course as the chair is four couples, you should also remember to factor in the height of the person you’ll be camping with.

Stability

Camping implies that you may encounter rough terrain at times or that you may choose to camp in the wild. As a result, the chair’s stability is an important consideration.

Sometimes a chair is designed to be light and sturdy, but the legs need to be more stable, implying that the legs are too thin or the joints need to be stronger to support the weight of the occupants.  Always check stability as you look for a good couples chair option.

Additions

Other potential additions include:

  1. Cup holders: These are useful to keep your tumblers or glasses in place.
  2. Storage pockets: These pockets are helpful in storing your small personal items.
  3. Built-in cooler: This addition keeps your beverages within reach as you sit and enjoy the view.
  4. Umbrella-holder: This addition allows you to install a beach umbrella that could give you enough shade when the sun is high.

My three recommendations broken down

So based on the information above and my own experience, I recommend the following options:

1. Coastrail Outdoor Folding Double Camping Chairs

This two-person camping chair comes with a cup holder and an additional storage system that allows you to store your valuables while you enjoy the warmth of a bonfire or a sunset. The comfortable design complements the sturdy construction of this low-cost camping loveseat as well.  See its specifications below:

  • Brand: Coastrail Outdoor
  • Weight capacity: 600 pounds (300 pounds for each chair)
  • Frame material: Polyester and alloy steel frame
  • Dimensions: 18.9 x 54 x 41.7 inches
  • Weight: 18 pounds

Other inclusions :

  • Insulated zipper pocket
  • Mesh pockets
  • Storage bag

Why have I chosen it?

Even though you are not seated exactly side by side, it is cozy enough to serve as a perfect couple camping chair. As above, it comes with a cup holder and several mesh pockets, which are ideal for storing snacks. It also has an insulated zipper pocket in the armrest to keep your drinks cool.

The packed size is long, which may be inconvenient, however the carry bag and padded straps allow you to carry the chair while leaving your hands free to carry other items.


2. Kamp-Rite Outdoor Camping 2 Person Double Folding Chair

My second product recommendation offers unique versatility and stability as well as being designed for comfort. It even has excellent storage that will keep your beverages cold too.  See its specifications below:

  • Brand: Kamp-rite
  • Weight capacity: 500 pounds (250 pounds for each chair)
  • Frame material: 600D Polyester fabric and alloy steel frame
  • Dimensions: 42 x 18 x 40 inches
  • Weight: 18 pounds

Other inclusions:

  • Built-in cooler
  • Storage bag
  • Cup holders
  • Storage pockets

Why have I chosen this?

The packed size is relatively small and the product folds easily making it useful for all camping needs. The cooler in the center effectively keeps your beverage cold with pockets that allow you to keep your phone or other essential items close and safe while you relax. This double camping chair is strong enough to support two people weighing up to 500 pounds.


3. Kelty Low-Love Seat Camping Chair

My last double camping chair option comes with a minimalist design for ease of transit whilst still including features such as drink holders and excellent cushioning to ensure comfort. See its specifications below:

  • Brand: Kelty
  • Weight capacity: 500 pounds (250 pounds for each chair)
  • Frame material: Polyester and alloy steel frame
  • Dimensions: 37 x 13 x 9 inches
  • Weight: 15.26 pounds

Other inclusions:

  • Insulated cup holders
  • Slightly reclining design

Why have I chosen this?

This double camping chair is an excellent all-around camping chair with great durability combined with its ease of use and comfort.  The padded seat, back, and armrests make this piece of outdoor furniture feel luxurious. The armrests are also cleverly adjustable, each with a small plastic buckle to keep it exactly where you want it.

The design is also low to the ground (holding your bum only 7 inches off the ground), allowing for a comfortable lounging position and preventing the seat from digging uncomfortably into the backs of the thighs.
