Low Cost Alternative

The AmazonBasics Camp Chair is essentially a scaled-down copy of the Coleman Cooler Quad we looked at earlier in this list. The difference is the convenience and customer service quality assurance that has made Amazon the reigning titan of eCommerce. Their Basic Camp Chair comes fully kitted out with a 4-can cooler, mesh cup holder, and partially meshed back for ventilation. It’s also available in a padded and XL-padded variation that looks even more like the Coleman model.

The AmazonBasics camp chair is a feature-rich and solidly constructed option for anyone who needs a cheap chair in a rush. I found this foldable chair to feel a little small on me, but the average person probably won’t feel as constricted.

Between the cooler, the cupholder, the side pocket, and the back mesh- it’s hard to find much to criticize about this chair. If you’re sold but it happens to be out of stock, the above-listed Coleman Cooler Quad Chair has many of the same features and a similar design for roughly the same price.
