With the increasing prevalence of insect-repelling outerwear on the market, it was just a matter of time until someone came up with the idea of bug-begone camp furniture.

The Insect Shield Chair from TravelChair (available in September, MSRP: $65) is just that, with it’s odorless treatment helps to repel bugs.

True, it’s significantly more expensive than a common camp chair. The reason is the invisible and odorless treatment of  permethrin designed to reduce bug bites.

The 8-pound steel chair is backed by a one- year warranty. It has a nylon mesh and dries quickly for the purpose of river trips.

As for keeping mosquitoes at bay, the manufacturer says it has tested well for up to six months of constant outdoor exposure.

The chair doesn’t cast the 2-foot force field you might desire, but bug bites were few and far between during a recent shirtless sunset on the Colorado River. The chair helps, but you might want to keep the spray handy.

Slacker Stool- 1389V

"I now keep one in my car ready for any type of activity where sitting is preferable than standing. You can insert your own activity here. The size make this easy to grab when in doubt, and has often served as a life saver.

Easily stored and low-profile. Almost no bigger or heavier than an umbrella. You will not complain taking it with you and will be rewarded by being rested and comfortable when you get up."

    Joey Chair- 7789V

    "After owning this chair for a little more than half a year, I can confirm that this chair is all-around amazing. It is extremely comfortable and it is pretty light weight.

    As others have mentioned, the feet outperform other chairs that have straight feet in the sand. The feet design allows for the chair to sit on top of sand rather than sinking in.

    My friends are always jealous when I bring this chair to the park (which is every time, since its so easy to pack). So much that we often end up taking turns on it 
    If you're debating whether or not to get it, do yourself a favor and just buy it!"

    Big Kahuna- 599

    "Awesome sturdy comfortable chair. I don't know why but I am the King Champion of breaking folding camp chairs. I am 6'2" 295lbs and have broke many 300lbs rated chairs, one chair cut up the back of my knee pretty good when it failed.

    My son is 6'7" 325lbs and plays major college football, he has not even come close to breaking as many chairs as I have. Well the Big Kahuna Chair is rock solid and comfortable I don't ever see this chair failing. If it ever does I'll post it."
