General Information About Folding Loveseat Camping Chairs
Is that thing actually comfortable?
These loveseats have the same advantages as camping chairs, like the hammock-style fabric seat that takes the place of a cushion.
The first and most common question asked by a person seeing a folding loveseat for the first time: that can’t be comfortable can it? Fortunately, the answer is, sure it can! These loveseats have the same advantages as camping chairs, like the hammock-style fabric seat that takes the place of a cushion.
The other reason so many people have adopted two person loveseats is the extra space they provide. Even when there are two people sitting on it, they still have more space and leg room compared to those narrow collapsible chairs. And if you’re using it alone, what’s to stop you stretching out like you’re on the couch at home?
Are folding loveseats easy to use?
Loveseats do have more complicated frames than the camping chairs you’re used to, providing extra support for the bigger seat and heavier load.
Loveseats do have more complicated frames than the camping chairs you’re used to, providing extra support for the bigger seat and heavier load. Fortunately, they still unfold and refold in a single piece, just like camping chairs: pull it out of the bag, snap it open, and select a handy patch of grass.
Loveseats are also very light and portable, which is why so many busy soccer parents and campers have adopted them. One two person seat is a lot lighter and more compact than two chairs, and they take up less space both in the car and set up on the ground.

Not all loveseats are created equal, of course, but pick the right quality product and you’ll have a companion for years of camping trips and concerts. The best in tear-resistant fabrics and fibers, and reinforced seams let these chairs survive thousands of unfoldings and refoldings without snapping a stitch.
