I find the "el cheapos" from Silly Sollys, Crazy Clarks,The Warehouse etc [around $15) work well. They are cheap, comfortable, can take knocking round in the bush, have stubby holders in the arms [very important :) :) :) ], and if the worst comes to the worst - throw 'em away and buy new ones. Why bother paying exorbitant prices in camping shops who charge too much anyway?? The ones we have keep going ang going.

Horses for course though - Yes the cheapies are ok for me (under 60Kg) but not for big Dave (over 100kg). We have to hunt high and low for good camp chairs that don't collapse under one very tired body after a hard day. It's not only embarrassing but inconvenient and it hurts to hit the deck! These days we are sick of buying the cheapies and for big dave we look for ones with steel reinforcing, no rivet joins and wider seats!! tee hee heee :-)

G'day Michelle, I guess you could always sit on the ground. Not so far to fall after a few beers :) :)

Ditto......I have bought goodies in the past and ended up repairing them to get the service I'm due.....changed that now....
by comfortable cheapies...if they fail, by another at the next roadhouse.....max of $20 should do the trick if you go to the right places.....dp

We're sick of cheapies, have just purchased 2 Shakespeare brand Directors chairs from our local marine/ boat dealer. They were on special at recent 4WD show.

Have you noticed how no matter how comfortable a chair is when you flop into it...... after a while it becomes uncomfortable? I always like to have the simple no back no arm ones as well as a range of any old cheap or expensive versions that I have collected over the years. Put my feet up on one and flop into another. When someone leaves the campfire..... musical chairs! See ya Royce

We found some really comfortable highback folding chairs at BIg W for $40. We liked them so much we decided to buy another set, but could find them for about a year, but they were back about 2 months ago so we got another set.

Of course we constantly have to fight off the other members of our club so we can sit in them.

Being tall we put them right at the back of the cargo area - standing up, side by side, and they take up the whole back (ie they have to be removed to get stuff in and out).
