Q:

What's the best car-camping chair?

I'm in the market for a new chair for car camping. I'm open to anything from a Crazy Creek to a folding frame, as long as it's comfortable and durable.

Also take a look at L.L. Bean's Camp Recliner ($129), which is so comfortable I'd be happy to set up at home. Features include an aluminum frame, headrest, a mesh seat that'll help you keep cool, bungee suspension, and adjustable legs. The problem, of course, is that you’ll sit down and never want to get up.

Another option is REI's austere-but-comfy Camp Chair ($35). It has a sturdy, powder-coated steel frame, a mesh and polyester seat, and even a cup holder.
