We gave the REI’s Camp X Chair rave reviews last year, and now it’s marked down 25%. It’s one of our favorites deals among REI Co-op’s sale, happening now.
The Camp X Chair is great for car camping and backyard bonfires. The larger build means it’s comfortable enough for soccer games, concerts, or soaking in sun and fresh air. At 7 pounds, it’s too heavy for backpacking (see the Flexlite Air for that, also 25% off) yet sturdy enough for the campsite.
The chair’s design hits the sweet spot between durability, function, and value — which is why we recommend it as the best overall camping chair last year. And from now through March 26, it’s on sale for $30.
Our reviewer praised the mesh fabric for its breathability and quick-drying traits. The polyester webbing fit atop the poles in the shape of an X (hence the name) to distribute the weight more evenly.
Go Big and Stay Home: REI’s Camp Xtra Chair
If you’re really into sitting around while camping or just want a kitted-out chair for the backyard, check out the beefier Camp Xtra Chair. REI says it supports up to 400 pounds. The armrests have drink-holders to fit a variety of drinkware, and the side pocket keeps a book or tablet off the ground.
The Camp Xtra Chair uses powder-coated steel poles to bulk it up to its 10-pound weight. It’s a lifestyle piece for sure, but we could all treat ourselves to more comfort outside. It’s on sale for $45.
