Whether you’re camping out at your child’s soccer tournament or literally going camping, it’s good to have a couple of reliable lawn chairs on hand. You want an ergonomic chair that you can sit comfortably for hours, without hurting your back or butt. There’s nothing worse than having a sore back from sitting in a chair, especially when you’re exposed to the elements—the hot sun or cold rain. When the game or trip is over, you have to fold up your chairs. You don’t want to waste time (and sweat) trying to shove a chair into its carrying bag for 20 minutes. There are so many little things that can go wrong with portable fold-out seats, which is why we rounded up the best lawn chairs for you. These selections take mere seconds to fold out and pack away.
Our picks can withstand the elements without fading and developing mildew. The chairs have special features, too. One of our selections has a cooler cup holder that can hold not one, but four drinks. Why settle for one or no cup holders when you can cool so many drinks?
