A gnarled oak makes a fine backrest if you’re backpacking, but if you’re not carrying your seat you might as well get comfortable. The Kelty Lowdown camp chair has everything you need for fireside lounging—sturdy steel frame, tough nylon fabric (the same used in many of the best packs,) adjustable armrests, and a well-angled backrest for proper lazing. Even better, the Lowdown sports an adjustable holder for your sundry beverages, complete with tethered bottle opener. So much for roughing it. ($48; kelty.com)
