With the right camping chair, you can make any trip more comfortable. Quick to setup and comfortable to lounge in, a good camping chair should improve the trip, rather than make it less convenient. Unfortunately, many chairs fail to do this.
Whether it’s because they’re difficult to set up or they simply don’t offer enough comfort to sit on, there are many camping chairs that end up being a waste of money.
So how do you avoid spending more than you need to on a camping chair?
Reviews always help, as they let you look at the main features and help you to opt in or out of the purchase.
Here, we will look at what Moon Lence’s Ultralight Portable Camping Chair.
There are plenty of features this chair shares with many others, alongside a few that help it to stand out from the crowd. Let’s examine them.
Featuring a simple folding design, this chair comes in a choice of four colors, so you should be able to find something to suit your taste.
You also receive a handy carry bag, so you can get it from A to B without any problems, as well as store it when not in use.
The chair can carry a weight of up to 242 pounds. You may notice that this is a lower weight than many other chairs on the market, but Moon Lence’s chair makes up for that in other ways.
The seat stands at 15 inches tall, making it ideal for adults and teenagers.
The standout feature of this chair has to be its durability. Moon Lence has used 1000 denier (D) oxford fabric for the chair itself.
This thickness, coupled with the inherent durability of oxford fabric, ensures the chair can stand up to all of the rigors of camping. You won’t have to worry about any tears as long as you don’t overuse the chair.
The chair bolsters this durability with an aluminum alloy frame, which offers stability without upping the chair’s weight.
This chair weighs only about 2 pounds.
This makes it easy to bring along on long hikes, and makes it an ideal choice for children who would struggle to carry a steel-framed chair.
It’s not just the low weight that makes this one of the most portable chairs around. You can also fold both the holders and mesh into smaller pieces for storage.
As such, you can easily fit the chair into a backpack if you don’t want to use the carry bag that comes with it. The chair even easily fits into the overhead storage compartments on planes and trains.
You’ll notice the difference that the thick oxford fabric makes from the moment you sit on the chair. The fabric offers plenty of support, especially for the lower back, plus, it protects you from any jutting poles that might otherwise have poked you while sitting down.
The mesh that Moon Lence has built into the fabric only adds to the comfort level. This breathable mesh helps you to stay cool during hot summer days because it allows air to flow freely through the chair.
Moon Lence wants to make setup as simple as possible, which is where the handy bungee cords, featured throughout the frame, come into play.
All you need to do is give the frame a little shake and it all starts popping into place. After that, it’s just a case of fitting the fabric, and your chair is ready to go.
The waterproof fabric means it dries out quickly if you happen to get caught in the rain. It also allows you to clean the chair quickly, as all you need is some soap and water to get rid of any stains.
The handy carry bag comes with two small handles, so you shouldn’t have any problems moving the chair around when it’s not in use.
- Comes with a carry case
- Small enough to fit in overhead storage compartments
- Made with thick, 1000D oxford fabric
- Aluminum alloy frame keeps the chair’s weight low
- Setup is a breeze
- Mesh fabric allows the chair to breathe when in use
- Low price point when compared to similar chairs
- No cup holders
- May not be suitable for adults taller than 6 feet
- Holds a lower maximum weight than many similar chairs
- Questionable stability when it nears the weight limit.
This ultralight camping chair lives up to its name, as it weighs only 2 pounds. The combination of an aluminum alloy frame and 1000D oxford fabric makes it one of the more durable chairs around. Plus, the bungee cord construction ensures easy setup and stowing.
You’ll find it’s small enough to fit into most backpacks, though it also comes with its own carry case.
There aren’t many camping chairs that offer this level of quality at such a low price. Moon Lence has focused on the practicalities of storage and comfort, excelling in both areas with this chair.

The 1000D oxford fabric really comes into its own when the chair is in use, and you should find it offers plenty of support when you sit down.
The bungee cords inside the aluminum frame are a bit different, but they work surprisingly well in practice. Think of them like tent poles.
A shake here and a wiggle there will get everything snapped into place, so you won’t spend an eternity trying to get the chair to do what you want.
There are some bugbears, though. The Moon Lence’s Chair doesn’t come with any cup holders, which is a minor thing that may still annoy you when all you want to do is relax with a nice, cold drink.
The fact that it only holds a maximum weight of 242 pounds makes it unsuitable for larger adults, though the overall construction is sound.
All told, this is a great camping chair for teenagers and average-sized adults. The larger among you may want to look elsewhere.
