Sturdiest Chair
REI Camp Xtra

See all pictures

With REI’s time and tenure in the outdoor industry, they’ve had plenty of time and data to figure out what exactly it is that the average person is going to want in their camp chair. With a fully functional weight-distribution system, two versatile cupholders, and a more substantial side pocket than we’ve seen from any of the competition, the Camp Xtra is everything out could ask for out of a chair, short of a built-in cooler. Though it’s not a loveseat, the Camp Xtra is a massive chair with a 400lb weight limit to back it up.

I’m a huge fan of the Camp Xtra because it feels like it’s built for big people. It’s not often that I can actually use a chair’s armrests without feeling hunched over a little bit. Between the size and the thoughtful features that REI has chosen to incorporate, the Camp Xtra is a veritable polyester throne fit for the king of the campground.
