Have you ever thought about how much time you spend sitting in a chair? Even if you are outside and active, you eventually want to take a seat. But, in my opinion, the best place to take a seat, is definitely outside.

'Tis the season for outdoor seating. Whether it be heading out on a relaxing camping trip, hiking up a scenic trail, or sitting out in the backyard BBQing, outdoor chairs are very important to our ultimate summertime enjoyment. And what’s better than having an outdoor chair that you can fold up and take anywhere?

When compiling this list of the 10 best chairs for outdoor seating season, I decided to give them each their own superlative. From the best back support to the best reading chair to the most excessive, there is a chair here for everyone.

I have my favorites, some of which have made it to this list, but each one has a distinct feature that makes it one of the best 10 outdoor chairs. Some are great for relaxing for a few hours with a good book (I can vouch for that!) or protecting yourself from the sun. The mesh backs on many of these chairs allow a sweet breeze to come through and cool you down on a hot summer day.

Also, don’t be scared away by the prices of some of these outdoor chairs. You may be tempted to go to your local discount store and grab the cheapest foldable chair available, but that is never a good idea when it comes to outdoor chairs.

The best ones are sturdy, with strong materials and thicker arm rests. Nothing is worse than one day unfolding your chair to find that an armrest ripped. Or spilling an entire drink as the cupholder falls apart.

These chairs will last. I’ve had some of my camping chairs for over 15 years. I even took one with me when I moved to the city, just so I could get some outdoor sitting time. When you spend the extra money, you won’t be sorry. These chairs are great, sturdy, and comfortable outdoor seating options to bring with you anywhere.
