Kelty Camp Chair – Best on the Market

Sorry REI, but you just go ahead and stick to the lightweight granola backpacker gear. Kelty has the complete camp chair figured out. Probably why REI sells them as well. They kick ass. I ended up replacing most of our camp chairs with the Discovery Lowdown Chair. We’ve had the older model for years and besides the fire ember holes melted in the arms they have stood up to three kids, several dogs, and hundreds of nights in heavy outdoor use. I ordered them off of Backcountry though but it’s the same price from REI.

Once you flop down in this chair, make damn sure you don’t need to get up for another drink or to pee in the woods. You will find it too comfortable to rise, no matter the emergency. On top of the sturdy design is functionality for a comfort-loving camper like myself. The arm on the right sports a cup holder, and wait for it….another compartment for your phone! That’s right. They were thinking about us who like to snap photos and look at while sipping Fireside Bourbon in front of a roaring campfire. Runs $59 and is worth every penny.

I grew up in the middle of nowhere Texas. The nearest Walmart was a full two hours away. My family still runs a ranch back home that I grew up on, but at some point in my treasured youth I hung up the idea of becoming a cowboy, and pursued my passion for architecture. Today I still find myself trying to fit in to a life that has treated me with the average ups and downs one can expect after a certain number of years. My wife and I moved to Denver after attending Texas Tech School of Architecture in Lubbock as we needed a grade change from the Llano Estacado. We camp with our three growing girls all summer and into the fall while I write and create and fly fish to maintain sanity. Life is moving fast as our careers and children progress in all areas, so being outdoors with each other keeps us mostly grounded.
