When you're traveling, camping, or attending a ballgame, seating is key to comfort. Bleachers are hard, and sitting in the grass is buggy. That's why we take along portable outdoor seating. Not all outdoor chairs are worth your money, so we're breaking out our list of favorites.

Our top three picks

Why you can trust iMore Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

At the top of our list of favorite portable outdoor seating is Coleman's Quad Chair with Can Cooler (opens in new tab). This is a broad, comfy seat with armrests and a built-in can cooler that keeps up to four cans cold. When you want a seat with padding to spare, reach for the Stansport Go Anywhere Chair (opens in new tab). The backrest adjusts to five positions, giving a soft place to rest anywhere.

And if you feel cramped by traditional outside chairs or want a little more height, you will appreciate the unique features of the Browning Camping Director Chair (opens in new tab). It sits taller, has a wide seat that supports up to 325 pounds, and includes a side table and footrest.
