The inflatable models we're testing may be a fun alternative to folding models and hammocks, but it all comes down to what you want from your chair. On the plus side, the Coleman packs down into a minute box and at just over 1kg, won’t get in the way in the van. It won’t break the bank either, its price and size warranting the purchase of more than one chair for touring.

On the other hand, the Coleman chair offers almost no back support and any serious amount of pressure on its backrest could result in a spilt drink.
