    Extra seating

    If you're looking for a very simple chair or extra seating for when you invite guests for a game of cards. You can choose a folding or 3-legged stool. A stool takes up so little space that you can put it in a car boot, or under a bench and just forget about it, and you can even take a 3-legged stool with you on your walks if you don't like sitting on the ground.

  • What is the difference between a camping chair and camping armchair?

    Camping armchairs

    Armchairs are often bigger and feature armrests. They are still easy to fold and unfold but will be a little more bulky and heavier because of their additional features.

I need folding chairs to put around my camping table

You already have a folding camping table and are looking for chairs that will be perfect for informal meals. You can use your camping armchairs for eating but sometimes they're too low to be really comfortable. So you need to check the height of your folding camping table to ensure a comfortable dining experience. We've designed two different sized camping chairs so you can find the one you need!

I've already got a camping chair but it has no accessories - a cup holder, for example

Do you already have all your camping gear but you want a chair with accessories? We've thought of you! Because you can sometimes get very attached to your camping equipment or because you "just" need that little something extra, we've designed accessories that are easy to attach and can transform your camping chair. You'll always have your water bottle close at hand thanks to this cup holder which is compatible with all Quechua chairs.

And if you want to read before your siesta or store your cards easily after a game, our pocket organiser is the perfect item for you. It's easy to attach and can even be used as a document holder to transport your belongings from one campsite to another. This ingenious product has been co-designed with campers to meet their specific requirements.

Finally, if you're a fan of the siesta and like to rest with your legs up, we have a camping leg rest so you can relax in comfort.

Do you want other camping furniture to go with your chair?

Camping equipment is our speciality and we recognize that a camper buying a chair will often need a lot more than just that. Tables, kitchen units, cabinets to store your equipment and clothing - in short, all the equipment you need for a comfortable camping experience is available from our Decathlon stores and on-line. Here we present some of our ranges to help you decide. And, of course, if you still have doubts or questions, our "how to choose" guides and our Decathlon shop assistants are here to help.

Can I repair my camping furniture?

Yes! Every day our teams work together to design products that have a reduced environmental impact. And, because to we want to go even further, we have also developed options for repairing these products. Because if you factor in the full service life of camping equipment, the longer you use it, the lower its environmental impact. So being able to repair a chair, armchair or even a camping table is very important to us. It's a way of extending the service life of a product, saving money (it's still cheaper to replace the worn part than buy a whole chair) and reducing our impact on the planet.

What should I do with my camping chairs when I no longer need them?

Have you changed your camping chairs or no longer have any use for them? You can take advantage of our returns policy and take them back to your Decathlon store. After evaluating your product, we will offer to buy it - depending on its overall condition and provided that it's less than 5 years old. And you get to leave with a lighter trunk! Returned products are then refurbished by our workshop teams, tested to check that they meet all our quality standards, and sold at a competitive price

which means we are able to give our products a second life. They come with a 2 year guarantee and can be enjoyed by hikers and campers who might not have the budget to buy new products. And, again, the longer a product is used, the lower its environmental impact. So, remember to sort through your cupboards; it could make you money and bring happiness to other outdoor enthusiasts.

Have you got a limited budget? Check out our second life shop - you may find some useful equipment. Although Decathlon's main objective is to offer the best value for money, we understand that this may not always suit your budget. In our second life shop, you'll find products that have already been used but have been checked and repaired by our teams.
