We’re getting awfully excited about summer here at SunnyScope, and we’re not the only ones. This is the perfect time to start piecing together your ultimate camp gear, so that you’re ready whenever the outdoors calls — even if all you intend to do is stay in camp! Check out this great outdoor furniture that will have you relaxing in style out in the woods, or right in your own backyard.
This is the camp chair to end all camp chairs as far as we’re concerned. If you’ve got some sturdy trees to work with at your campsite, this hanging chair from Grand Trunk will be all the camp chair you’ll ever need. Basically a chair-hammock hybrid, this nylon sling is strong enough to support your body, while keeping your back upright and supported as well. Comprised of parachute nylon, ropes, and aluminum poles for the framing, assembly of this chair is painfully simple, and it only weighs 3.5 lbs to boot, making it an ideal chair for backpackers as well. There is an attached foot rest for complete lounging action, and the bottom of the seat features drain holes so you don’t have to scramble to protect it from the occasional cloudburst. But it’s not just a great outdoor chair — the Road Recliner can easily be hung in the house for that camping feeling all year round.
Just like the hanging chair, the hammock provides that extra level of relaxation that a lounger on four legs just can’t. This double hammock from Grand Trunk will fit two people incredibly comfortably, and could probably serve as a camp bed with shelter for a single person. Assembly is as easy as finding a space wide enough to put it, and tear down consists of just stuffing the entire hammock into the attached stuffsack. At only 20 ounces, this versatile lounging option should be with you on all your outdoor adventures!
Off the ground camping may not be for everyone, but there’s no reason you should have to lug around separate pieces of furniture if you can make one piece do it all. That’s where this chair sleeve from Therm-A-Rest comes in. Compatible with Therm-A-Rest’s line of self-inflating mattresses, this sleeve is designed to configure your sleeping mat into a simple chair with plenty of support for your back or your rear. It’s especially ideal for backpackers, who need to make the most of their packing space, but it works well for an afternoon at the park or a sports game too!
