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.

A:Ah, nothing says car camping like a good camp chair! Add in a fire and a little Maker’s Mark, and all is right with the world.

For car camping, Crazy Creek has two lines of chairs that may appeal to you. The Crazy Legs Beach ($41), which is part of their family camping collection, has an aluminum frame that folds down compactly and weighs only 2 pounds 10 ounces. It sits low to the ground—the seat height is five inches high—which makes it comfortable for sitting around a fire but won't work as well if you bring a camp table.

By comparison, Crazy Creek’s Original Chair ($48) is essentially a chair with no legs. Set it on the ground, a log, or a picnic table, and you'll have a comfortable back and dry seat.
