When chairs are made to meet a certain price point, many manufacturers will skimp on something or make compromises just to reduce the production cost. The result is substandard chair that won't last long. You don't want to invest on something like that, do you? It always pays to make a little research first before shelling out bucks for a new folding chair. Allow us to help you in deciding what chair to purchase by sharing with you our experience with the ARB folding chair, also known as the Sport Camp Chair.

- We are impressed by the strength and durability of this product. During our camping, it was always used by our friend whose weight is somewhere close to 200lbs, and thankfully, this folding chair hasn't put us to shame.
- We particularly love the arm rests, which are noticeably larger than the arm rests of other camping chairs in the market. After a long drive, the surface of these arm rests provides us with a comfortable place to rest our tired hands on.
- Despite being heavy duty, this ARB chair is amazingly compact enough when folded. We can easily put it on its own carry bag and pile it up along with our camping gears on the trunk. It doesn't eat up much storage space, and its locking tabs are there to keep it folded.
- The padded seat and back rest are also bonus points as they provide warmth and comfort after a tiring drive. Among its features, we found the drink holder pouch very useful.
- It may not be the cheapest folding/camping chair you'll find in the market.
- It just comes in one color combination. It would be better if it will be offered in different shades, so buyers will have the option to match it with the color of their tents or the finish of their off-road vehicle.
The bottom line is...
If you're in a hunt for a folding chair where you can relax after a day of tiring drive, this ARB product is near perfect. It has comfortable padded seats and backrest, plus comfy arm rests. It is also compact enough to be stored or carried anywhere. If you love attractive colors, the only thing you may not love about this chair is its earth color. Nevertheless, we're giving it a high rating for being durable, hardwearing, and extremely portable.
