What we thought

Camp chairs are one of those essentials that annoyingly, we end up buying over and over again. A few years ago I bought some from Tesco for just £5 each, and to be honest I didn’t expect much, but they lasted pretty well. Towards the end of the second year one of them broke, and after a winter in the shed they both emerged that spring covered in mould.

Then we tried out some Trespass chairs which were a little bigger and priced slightly higher. They initially felt like they were better quality, but ended up only lasting us a single season before one broke, so we have high hopes for our new polka dot chairs!

At £19.99 a pop the Trail Deluxe Polka Dot camping chairs are more expensive than the bog standard chairs you can pick up pretty much anywhere at this time of year, so we were keen to find out if the chairs stood up to their ‘deluxe’ status and slightly higher price tag.

These chairs come in an array of different colours, making it easy to match your chairs to the colour of your camping set-up, and if you’re anything like us, colour co-ordination or purposeful vibrant clashing is a must.

As well as their funky Teal polka dot pattern, these chairs come in an array of other bright colours, making it easy to match your chairs to the colour of your camping set-up, and if you’re anything like us, colour co-ordination or purposeful vibrant clashing is a must.

As well as looking pretty funky we found that these camp chairs are much more generous in size than the usual bog standard camp chair. As well as being a bit wider and generally more substantial, we also liked the fact that they are more padded too, making them that bit more comfy than standard camp chairs.

Final verdict

It’s a big thumbs up from us in terms of both quality and looks, and whilst they are marketed as festival chairs, my own preference would be to take something cheap or old to a festival, keeping these bigger, comfier chairs for camping trips.
