What are you trying to say Matt?

You get what you pay for, and they're made in the USA. One chair that costs $150 that will last a lifetime, vs a $30 chair that you'll be throwing away and replacing every few years.
You got me there Martin

How about I change the title to the best camp chair for around 60 bucks or less!

I have Wall-mart $7 folders they are great. I think I've had mine for about 7 years. It's got some holes from hot embers, and only one cup holder. But for $7, hard to beat.

Ditto... you gotta go sit in them and see what fits you. I like to lean back on the back two legs and don't like it when they pinch my legs either. Seems like some work and soem don't. My fav was an ultra cheapie that is super comfy.

The kermit ones look nice though.

I discovered that the chairs WalMart sells have weight ratings on them. So I pulled out a set that are rated at 300 lbs and are "extra wide". They are significantly beefier than the std chairs they sell which are rated for 200 lbs. They were about $15 more than the std chair so I picked up 2, we'll see how they hold up.

ive used these for years...the HD ones...

ive found the best/ most expensive camp chair:

a) does not hold up when it catches on fire and/or melts.
b) cannot support the weight of a <vehicle>
c) is very hard to clean the smell of vomit out of.

for these reasons... cheaper and disposable is better..at least in my book.
