Moon Lence Outdoor Folding Chair (Review 2021)
Published: July 14, 2021
Moon Lence Outdoor Folding Chair is a heavy-duty chair that has a maximum carrying capacity of 400 pounds. This is a lightweight type of chair when folded because you can store it inside your backpack with about 2 pounds of weight. It comes with two side pockets on both sides of the armrests and a storage bag. This portable camping chair is furnished with oxford cloth on the seat with breathable mesh on the backrest.
The best features of this heavy-duty chair are the price, portability, and the carrying weight. Some of the manufacturers claim that their chair is portable and easy to carry but the weight and the size contrast from the reality but with Moon Lence Outdoor Folding Chair, you can assure your backpacking to be light.
The only drawback of this chair is the poles and fabric which is getting unstable when used continuously. However, we admired the compact aspects of this chair. It is small but can hold a carrying capacity of 400 pounds.
You can have this small but terrible chair below $50. This is affordable and reasonable compare to other chairs. This is perfect for hiking, trekking, camping, and backpacking because of the folded size and weight that won’t eat much of the space on your bag and can be easily set up.
This Moon Lence Outdoor Folding Chair is made with materials to fill in the needs of your relaxations. As you can see on the photos in Amazon, the shape of the seat and backrest are perfect to support your back and buttocks making you feel comfortable when you lean back.
If you are seeking some comfortable chair with a high weight capacity to accommodate you properly, we recommend this chair since the larger the weight capacity, the high probability that it is stable.
The backrest armed with mesh for breathability and the fabric is tight but soft. However, these advantages can be experienced especially the first time you use this. If you continuously utilize this, the fabric will sag and stretched.
Just like when we tested this for several times during outdoor activities, the longer you sit on it, you’ll gradually notice the difference and the discomfort. Another is the seams of the fabric. It is not weak and still holding from its original tightness but not the fabric. This may result in tearing or further damages.
The disadvantage also goes with the frame of this outdoor folding chair because it feels unstable when you sit on it but this is better than other heavy-duty chairs. The poles become shaky and the material that holds the frame seems loose.
On the other hand, the longevity of this equipment still depends on your usage. Taking care and watching out for the weakness is suggested. This doesn’t apply only to this outdoor chair but also to all.
Dimensions Folded: 25″ x 4.9″ x 34.8″
Material: Mesh RipStop Polyester
Weight Capacity: 250lbs
Other features and complement of this portable outdoor chair are not far from other chairs. It comes with side pockets and a storage bag. Those are just the notable and common attributes you may find in a camping chair.
Some outdoor chairs lack some extra pockets to store your lightweight belongings when sitting but Moon Lence has designed this chair with two side pockets that can be located hanging on both right and left of the armrest. These are built with Velcro. We really like this feature since, you can put your phones, bottles, etc, for your comfort.
Not really a downside of this chair, but we think it is a deficient feature. There are no built-in cup holders however you can still store your drinks on the side pockets. But, just a reminder, this isn’t a stable holder to hold your cups. It may spill or leak.
The sides of the fabric have a rope ring design to make it easier when you set it up. You should also take note that the legs of the chair can easily go down when you use it on the beach.
The package dimension of the chair is 14.72 inches length, 6.85 inches width, and 5.35 inches height.
If we talk about the portability of this Moon Lence outdoor chair, we can assure you that this is totally easy to carry and pack. You can insert it into your bag because the folded feature is small. It will not eat up space inside your bag nor consume one of your hands for carrying.
With the small size and compact storage bag, it will be effortless on your side when you bring it because the total folded weight of this outdoor chair is 2.4 pounds only. That won’t require you to transport it with a vehicle. This is one of the lightweight chairs we have reviewed that we can recommend if you are going to hike and camping.
The whole package is really an advantage for adventurers that plan to travel for a long period and walk or trek in high places.
Ease of Setup
Aside from being portable and lightweight, the Moon Lence Outdoor Folding Chair is also easy to set up. The same with other chairs we have reviewed, it won’t take long to fully assemble this chair.
But, if you set up this chair for the first time, you may find it a bit complicated because the seat and the frame are separated for easy storage on in its carry bag however, this will come in handy when you use it constantly.
When you unpacked the poles from its bag, you can see that it is folded. You just need to expand all of the poles and push it to the main pole of the frame to lock it. The poles have stretchable garter-like elements inside so it won’t detach and to guide you where to connect each. After you set the frame, you just have to insert the rope ring design that can be seen on the corners of the seat fabric. After that, you can now use the outdoor chair.
Moon Lence has built this outdoor folding chair with durable materials. The fabric is equipped with 600D Oxford and the frame is aluminum.
The main attraction of this outdoor chair is the high maximum weight capacity which can reach up to 400 pounds. Not all of the chairs bear this level of capability. The design is square-shaped making it feel sturdy when you sit on it.
Although those are trusted materials to make these kinds of equipment, we notice that the poles are not stable just like what we said in the comfort section. The small poles of the frame that holds the seat fabric of the chair are connected to the main pole of the frame. If you constantly use it, you can feel the stability is reducing slowly.
This fault also goes with the seat’s fabric. The more you use it, the more it stretches and results in sagginess.
But if you are looking for a more durable chair with unique features, you can check our GCI Outdoor Freestyle Rocker Chair review.

We can still consider it as durable since the carrying capacity is really high. If you plan on going on trekking with camping, we suggest this chair because it may suit your backpacking needs and this is undeniably a potential chair for you.
