Now that we can join friends and family in the garden and at local green spaces, the next issue to tackle is the problem of seating.

If you're lucky enough to have friends with enough garden furniture to comfortably seat everyone then that's great, but we often find ourselves perching on a wall or sitting crossed-legged on the floor. 

Enter: the Lightweight Durable Compact Folding Camp Chair - an easy way to ensure you're never too far from your own seat. 

Why we rate it:

Whether you're just following the sun around your friend's garden or packing up the car to head the beach, this chair is lightweight and easy to move around.

The scissor design allows for the chair to be easily folded and stored away without taking up a lot of space, and its matching bag means that you can comfortably carry it around over your shoulder. 

Plus, it is easy to wipe down and clean.

Our favourite part?

The armrest cup holder so that you needn't worry about kicking each others drinks over, or having to spend the entire time having to contort yourself to pick your drink up off the ground. 

Prices start at just £13.49 for the bold orange chair, with prices varying depending on design. 

What the reviews say:

With over 3,000 reviews, customers have a lot of praise for the affordable chair. 

  • "These were a great price. I bought them for a specific trip not really expecting them to last well as they were quite cheap ,but the quality is fantastic, the material is really thick and they have been used every day for weeks. They are more comfortable than our 'proper' garden chairs."

  • "With a forecast of sunny and dry weather and with most of our furniture held up in a house move, we looked for a cheap and versatile folding chair we could use for sitting out in the garden. The Highlander folding camping chair fitted the bill. I was worried that at the price, they would be flimsy, but I need not have worried as the product is quite substantial and has proven very useful."

  • "Brilliant for the money. I bought two of these so that we could sit and watch our grandson playing football. They are very comfy and strong. Used them first time today at a picnic and they were great, drink holders as well."

  • "Carry bags make them easy to store. I have looked at other chairs costing a lot more and can only say, save your money and get these."

  • "Bought to use for picnics really but when they arrived today, unpacked and tried one on our patio. Was amazed at how sturdy they were, how easy to unfold/ fold back up, and how comfortable they were. Sat in one for an hour, reading. Really impressed!"
