Our Review

Anglers will find themselves sinking into the cushioned padding of the Trakker Levelite Long Back Chair, it really is very comfortable!

Ergonomically designed to fit your shape, its super quick to erect by simply unclipping the two clips and unfolding.

You can then adjust by pressing the button which, using a patented leg mechanism, drops into position.

With the frame made from a blend of strong aluminium and stainless steel frame, you can be sure this won’t break for years to come.

When not in use, it all folds down compactly.

Once folded down, you simply use the clips to hold it together ready for packing back onto your barrow, or carrying to your car.

There is also the Trakker Levelite Compact Chair.

This has more of a low profile for anglers that prefer to stay low to the ground.

It has all the same characteristics as the Long Back Chair!

Strong and sturdy, the Fox Duralite is the lightest carp fishing chair Fox have ever produced!

The 3D premium mesh offer  exceptional comfort, whilst the oversized, and swivelling mud feet also keep the chair very stable.

With the legs fully adjustable, this is very useful for uneven terrain, and even the tightest or restricted swims.

As you can see from the image, there is strategic padding along the back, bottom and the arm rest that really do make you feel right at home.

A lightweight and very comfortable carp fishing chair, all that is missing is a nice cuppa!

Our Review

Next up on our best carp chair guide is the compact Chub RS Plus ‘Comfy Chair’.

Built around a robust frame, which is made from high-tensile steel, there are four fully adjustable legs that can be altered individually.

The swivelling mud feet can also be adjusted which helps to keep it level on uneven ground.

A two-tone, hard wearing material keeps it looking carpy, and comfortable.

For anglers that prefer a chair with armrests – these are made from aluminium, which keeps the overall weight down.

Stacks easy onto a barrow, or can be compactly stored in your boot or garage.

A minimal design that is easy to carry, unfold and relax by the bank as you wait for your rods to twitch!

The ‘Comfy Chair’ gets a big thumbs up from us!

Our Review

The Nash Indulgence ‘Big Daddy’ Camo Chair is actually a wider version of the popular ‘Daddy Long Legs’ model!

Offering additional room for really sinking into, comfort is unrivalled to any other wide carp chair on the market.

Although quite bulky, anglers who prefer comfort will really enjoy sitting in this armchair, whilst enjoying great views of the lake in front of them.

The extended legs brings you increased height that makes getting up and down slightly easier as opposed to low-profile type chair designs.

Whilst the Indulgence range brings luxury to your angling, the ‘Big Daddy’ is made from the highest quality suede and peachskin cover on both the chair, and arms.

Passing anglers are sure to look on with envy!

Fully reclining, other features include the ‘Lake Legends’ camo pattern, unique (and patented) Nash hand wheel – which eliminates jamming, and rear locking pin for increased stability.

The ‘Daddy’ of fishing chairs, this is one bankside luxury you can afford!

The Review

The Benchmark Multi Chair, if you haven’t guessed already, is designed to compliment the Benchmark Memory Foam bedchair.

The fleece-lined memory foam mattress padding is super comfortable, and is can be perfectly placed for rig building inside your bivvy, or simply enjoying the stunning views of your swim!

When placed onto your bedchair, in can be adjusted into multiple positions so you can feel as comfy as possible.

It can also be used as a traditional chair, if you wish.

Featuring the ‘rock-steady’ leg system, its very stable however you choose to use it.

The lightweight frame makes it easy to move, store and carry, whilst the inclusion of extra-large mud feet, again, further add to the stability of the Avid Carp Multi Chair.

Our Review

The second minimal model in our best carp chair countdown is the Wychwood Solace Low Profile Chair.

Great for a day session, or anglers with limited bivvy space, we were really impressed with a number of great characteristics.

Firstly, it’s very lightweight and portable – you could hardly notice it once packed up on the barrow!

Secondly, it’s really good value for money when put up against other day session chair on the market.

There is a clever arm system which aids stability when you get in and out of the chair, whilst you can also fold away the rear legs, which means you can use it on steep slopes!

With the legs, and swivel mud feet, all adjustable – you can take this carp chair anywhere!

The Wychwood Solace also felt very comfortable on my back, even after a few hours of relaxing with a nice cuppa…
