KingCamp Heavy Duty Camping Folding Director Chair Review: A Folding Chair Fit For a King

Final Verdict
When I think of heavy duty, I don't think of comfort. The KingCamp Heavy Duty Camping Folding Director Chair is now the exception to this, as they've added comfort to the back rest, the seat, and even the arm rests.
What We Like
The arm rests have padding which is lacking on many other types of camping chairs.
The lifetime warranty provides peace of mind for buyers, and says a lot about the quality of chair.
Plenty of storage to hold your keys, snacks, and other small items.
Not So Much
The seat is too low. Although this is based on preference, a low seat does provide a strain on joints when sitting down and standing up.
The back rest is too small. For a chair that is designed for heavier set individuals, the back rest is relatively small, and doesn't provide as much comfort as a larger back rest would.
Weight of the chair. The chair is considerably heavier than other camping style director chairs.

I don’t know about you, but I always seem to lose the little things that matter most while I camp; my phone, my keys, my reading glasses. The removable storage bag solves this problem, and has enough room to put a water bottle.

A must-have chair for any camping King!

This heavy-duty camping director chair comes with a lifetime warranty, but with the steel frame and heavy duty padding, you probably aren’t going to be replacing this chair. This is the Toyota Corolla of camping chairs; it will outlast your grandchildren’s children.

Sturdy Frame

The steel frame gives this chair a very solid feel. When sitting down the char doesn’t feel like it bends at all


This chair has all others beat by providing us with padding! Yes, the backrest, and the seat are padded, but the arm rests have padding too!

Easy to Use and Carry

Packing this chair up when you are done with it couldn’t be easier. Instead of trying to stuff it into a bag, or maneuver a zipper over the chair, all I had to do was fold it in half and carry it to my garage with the convenient carry handle.

Removable Side Storage Bag

I never knew I needed a removable storage bag until this chair. The pockets are large enough to store my drinks, wallet, keys, cell phone, snacks, and other small items that I tend to misplace when I need them most.

Side Tray

One of my favorite features is the collapsible side tray. I can put an open drink in the cup holder, and there’s enough room left for me to put my dinner plate, my tablet, or my book.

Who is it for

While this chair could be for anyone who wants a sturdy chair, this chair is designed for heavier set individuals. The steel frame supports up to 396 lbs, and provides a wider seat.

Materials & Construction

Steel Frame

I like the sturdiness of the steel frame. It not only can support up to 396 lbs, but my two children can use this chair as a playground (as children do with everything) and I feel confident it won’t collapse.

Polyester Seat Cover, Arm Rest Cover, Back Rest Cover

The polyester covers are easy to clean! I like that I can give them a quick wipe and not have to worry about taking the pieces off to wash them, and then lose them by the time I pull the chair back out.

Cotton Padding

Never before have I experienced a chair with padded arm rests! This is a small luxury you didn’t know you needed until you own a chair with padded arm rests, and now you can’t go back to a regular chair for camping.
