It may not be camping season yet but that doesn’t mean I can’t practice my lounging around camp skills now. After a good trail run or mountain biking excursion, I love to kick back at camp with a good book. Most camp chair aren’t particularly comfortable for resting my feet while reading a book. I’m stoked that I found a chair with a foot rest that is portable and comfortable.
The reclining camping chair by Roraima is lightweight enough to carry to the beach or to soccer games and folds down to fit in a convenient carry case. I wouldn’t want to carry it too far though as it is a bit bulkier than some of the other portable chairs I’ve used. This is due to the fact that it has extra metal posts for the foot rest. I’ll be using mine mostly for camping and for reading on the back porch so I won’t be carrying it much. The extra parts also means a little more time collapsing and putting away the chair. No problem since having the foot rest is well worth any extra trouble. I like the design of the foot rest area. If I don’t want to use the foot rest, I can put my legs on either side and sit upright comfortably without it getting in the way.
The chair comes with a detachable pillow which adds extra comfort in both the upright and reclining positions. I also like the cup holders. They are deep enough to hold my stainless steel water bottle.
The only drawback I found with the chair is with the reclining function. It was a bit tricky to figure out at first and takes some effort to get it to work right. Hopefully, now that I have it figured out, it won’t be too much trouble in the future. As far as durability, I haven’t had the chair long enough to know how well it will hold out. Overall, I’m excited to find a chair with a footrest and hope it’s not a fight during camping season to be the one who actually gets to use it.
