We recently tested out the Cliq Chair and were thoroughly impressed. The chair is well-made, very comfortable, and surprisingly adjustable. The fabric is soft to the touch but sturdy enough to last a long time. It was easy to assemble and adjust, with only minimal effort.
However, we’re not going to leave you with just that. Since we used this ultralight chair on a camping trip ourselves, we’re going to dive in and give you a holistic Cliq Chair review.
Overview of The Cliq Chair
The Cliq Chair is a unique and innovative way to be comfortable while you spend time in the great outdoors.
This portable chair features a patented design that allows the user to adjust not only the height of the camping chair but also its tilt and angle. We couldn’t believe it either when we tried it out, but its four legs and pillars telescope so you can get the height you want.
And this is probably where they get the name, but the legs click firmly into place once you extend the camping chair.
This means that users can find their perfect position for maximum comfort, no matter what task they are performing. This adjustable design is beneficial for long stints of sitting, like watching a game or reading a book in the backyard. The Cliq Chair is not like typical folding chairs you’ve taken to ball games, car camping trips, or even backpacking trips (all of which it’s great for!).
The Cliq Chair is made with durable materials and double seams and is lightweight and easy to transport. The chair frame is constructed from anodized aircraft-grade aluminum, so it’s suitable for outdoor use. The polyester fabric cover provides comfortable seating that is both durable and weather resistant.
What do customers think of this portable chair?
Before we ordered this chair, we felt we should check out what other customers thought of it. We were pleased to find that most reviews for the Cliq Chair were positive. Customers reported that the chair is comfortable, easy to use, and well made – overall, great value for money.
The few negative reviews mentioned that the chair was difficult to adjust and did not feel as secure as expected. Those reviews were immediately surprising, given the fact that it’s super sturdy and felt like it went together better than most camping chairs.
Of course, every review will be different when it comes to camping chairs because everyone has a different perspective.
However, as with every product, the Cliq Chair has its pros and cons. We’ll jump into those shortly.
Ordering our Cliq Chair was easy!
Before we made the purchase, we looked around to find where we could buy the Cliq Chair. Eventually, we found it on Amazon and the Cliq website and decided to go with Cliq since they had a great price and offered free shipping even though it was over our budget for a portable chair. Nonetheless, we still wanted to see what all of the fuss was about. At the time, we only paid $99 per chair, which isn’t bad at all.
Ordering our two chairs was super easy and straightforward. We received confirmation of our purchase right away, and within days, our chairs arrived in perfect condition in a nondescript brown box. That’s great if you’re wanting to get this chair as a gift. The Cliq Chair arrives with a velcro strap; however, if you purchase two chairs or more, you get a free bag to carry them around with.
Have we mentioned that we love bonus perks? By the way, the carry bag is totally worth it.
Pros and cons of the portable chair.
After trying out the Cliq Chair for ourselves, we can say with confidence that it is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a comfortable and adjustable camping chair.
We used it on just one camping trip, but that was enough to give you the run down and let you know what the pros and cons are.
Pros of the Cliq Chair—
- Lightweight and easy to transport. We were surprised at how quickly and easily we could move the chair around. It’s incredibly compact and is much smaller than most camping chairs. In fact, the chair folds into the size of a drink bottle from being the size of a full-sized folding chair. It’s impressive to see.
- Adjustable height and tilt angle. Although it is a very compact chair, it is still adjustable and has a significant level of comfort. Since every person has a different idea of what is a comfortable chair, you can adjust it how you want.
- Durable construction. We’ve gone through dozens of portable chairs over the years, and they all fall apart. With the Cliq Camping Chair being made of aircraft-grade aluminum, you won’t have that problem.
Personally, these are all qualities I’m looking for in a camping chair, but you may see otherwise. So with that, here’s the cons of the Cliq Chair.
Cons of the Cliq Chair—
- Difficult to assemble. Once we got the hang of it, putting the chair together was easy, but the instructions weren’t obvious, and it took us a few tries to figure out how to adjust it properly. However, we can attest that once you get it, it literally takes 5 seconds to get set up.
- Small weight capacity. The Cliq Chair can hold up to 300 pounds which are above standard for most camping chairs, but it’s a bit small for someone that weighs that much. Keep in mind if you weigh 250 lbs or more, your body size will be bigger as well. Just because the chair can support the weight doesn’t mean it’s designed for the weight.
- No mesh pockets. Unless you’re purchasing the Cliq Lounge Chair, you will find it’s one of the few portable chairs without a pocket. This can be a massive downside for those that like to have their phone, a water bottle, and other items close by while camping or relaxing.
You might be able to see right through these disadvantages or maybe even disagree entirely, but we figured we’d give you an honest opinion.
Are Cliq Chairs worth it?
That’s up to you, but if you ask any of us, we’ll tell you that the Cliq portable chair is worth every penny. It’s a great chair for camping trips but also for the backyard and beach. We haven’t had any problems yet, and it looks like it’s ready to last us for many years to come.
As far as hyper-portable chairs go, it’s one of the best we’ve ever tried.
The price is pretty steep for a folding chair, but what you get in return is a chair that can adjust to your desired comfort and highly durable construction. It’s an excellent choice for anyone that wants a comfortable seat but also wants something that won’t break the bank.
All in all, we highly recommend the Cliq Camping Chair if you’re looking for a reliable and comfortable camping chair.

Before we move on to our frequently asked questions, we wanted to make sure we mentioned the promotions and discounts that Cliq offers on their chairs.

Cliq Camping Chair FAQ
Since we have a few of the chairs ourselves, we figured we’d answer a few frequently asked questions about the Cliq Chair.
Does the Cliq Chair come with a carry bag?
If you purchase two or more chairs, you will receive a free carry bag to make transporting them easier. The velcro strap that comes with the chair is excellent, but having the bag is definitely a plus.
Is the Cliq Chair comfortable?
Absolutely! The Cliq Camping Chair has an adjustable height and tilts angle, so you can customize your comfort level. We’ve used it on several camping trips, and it’s been really comfy every time.
Do Cliq chairs work on sand?
Of course! They work various types of terrain including sand, mud, and loose dirt. They claim it’s tip-proof, which is a big claim, but we haven’t tipped over yet!
What colors can you get the Cliq Chair in?
While we only got the black chairs (I suppose we’re boring), you can get them in camouflage, navy, mist, moss, royal, silver, sky, red, or green. All of the colors are attractive and vibrant, so you can pick the one that best suits your tastes.
Do Cliq Chairs rust?
Most portable chairs rust within the first few trips, but not the Cliq Chair. It’s made of aircraft-grade aluminum, which is corrosion proof and incredibly durable. So you won’t have to worry about rust.
What is the Cliq Chair weight limit?
The weight limit on these portable chairs is 300 lbs. However, it’s a smaller chair and if you’re 300 lbs you’re going to struggle to stay on it. While it may physically hold that much weight, keep in mind your body size when buying this camping chair.
Who is Cliq Chair For?
For the most part, this folding chair is made for anyone that enjoys a combination of comfort and portability. Obviously, some people may need more support than the Cliq Chair can provide, but it’s an excellent option for most people. Whether you’re camping, attending sporting events, or just hanging out in the backyard, this is at the top of the list when it comes to folding chairs.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
There sure is! If you don’t like your Cliq folding chair for whatever reason, you can return it within 45 days and get a full refund (minus shipping costs). So if you’re not happy with your purchase, give Cliq a call, and they’ll take care of you.
Does Cliq offer a warranty?
From what we understand, they have a one-year warranty in place. That means that if something goes wrong with your Cliq chair within one year of purchase, they’ll repair or replace it at no charge to you. Just looking at the durability of the Cliq portable chair, I don’t think you’ll need to use a warranty any time soon.
So there you have it! That’s our Cliq Chair review in a nutshell and all the information we could find on the Cliq Camping Chair.
It’s been one of our favorite glamping gear buys in a while, and we highly recommend it. Whether you’re looking for something to take on camping trips or just need an extra seat in the backyard, this is a great option.
