Fishing Chair Review & Comparison: 6 Fishing Chairs Under $100


A reasonable fishing chair can make the day on the water a lot sweeter. It is not only comfortable, but it is also easy on the back. Especially anglers who suffer from back pain or back problems will quickly notice the difference to normal folding chairs. In addition, you can simply relax even better on the often very calm waters. But if you want to buy a fishing chair, there are a few things you should consider in order not to regret the purchase afterwards. Choosing the wrong chair can quickly make you feel uncomfortable with the new product after only a short time. That’s why we tested 6 models in the fishing chair test.

Material defects, such as a tear in the fabric can often be the cause. Also, a wobbly fishing chair or simply a seat cushion that has been quickly sat through can quickly spoil your pleasure. To prevent this, we have examined 6 fishing chairs for you and tested them with regard to the most important criteria. Based on these characteristics you can be sure at the end of the product report that you have probably found the best chair for you.

Note: From time to time, selected fishing chairs may be temporarily unavailable. If this is the case, you will find numerous fishing chairs on this overview page.

How did we test the respective fishing chair?

After the fishing chairs arrived, we unpacked them and checked for gross errors. This included, for example, whether the seams were sticking out and whether the workmanship was good. So we could already get a first impression. Everything that disturbed us, we wrote down afterwards. After that we went on to the practical part. That means: Sitting, sitting sitting sitting… 😉

Of course we took care how comfortable the fishing chair is and if it is really suitable for a longer sitting position. Especially the upholstery of the back was very important to us. Because we know from our own experience how important a good upholstery and a comfortable chair is. Of course we also looked at the transport characteristics. Especially if you go fishing frequently, it should be easy and quick to assemble, not weigh too much and therefore have good transport properties.

A nice extra that we have also checked with every fishing chair is a headrest. Because if this was available, the chair was usually much more comfortable. Also an adjustable backrest adds a lot to the comfort. Finally, the price/performance ratio was also important to us. We looked at whether the quality of the chair was in a reasonable relation to the price. Also the maximum load for the heavyweights among us was important to us 😉

The checked criteria were then used to form intermediate marks for the respective product.  With the help of the intermediate marks it was only a piece of cake to determine an overall mark. Finally, we crowned the best fishing chair the winner of the comparison and awarded it accordingly. By simply comparing the overall scores you should be able to quickly choose the model that suits you best. But now the first product report follows.

DAM Carp chair with armrests in a fishing chair Test

When the AnzeigeDAM carp chair with armrests arrived at our office, we found out that it is not necessarily the lightest fishing chair with 8 kg. You notice this immediately when you hold it in your hands for the first time. We like the fact that it is relatively easy to fold and assemble.

This makes it very easy to transport it under the arms or in the trunk of a car (VW Passat). With the transport dimensions of 85 x 60 x 22 cm it hardly takes up any space. What we liked is the fact that it can carry a load of up to 130 kg. This is quite neat and testifies to its stable construction which is ultimately reflected in its weight.

In terms of comfort, it is very comfortable. This is mainly due to the upholstery which is very comfortable on the back as well as the bottom. Here you quickly get the feeling that you are sitting in an armchair. If you are not quite as tall (approx. 1.70 m), you can even lean your head against it. Otherwise, the armrests are also quite comfortable, despite the fact that they are a bit hard.

In addition, the fishing chair can also be adapted to uneven floors thanks to the 4 movable feet. However, the angle of inclination of the feet is limited. This means that on a completely uneven ground (field etc.), it can be difficult to place the chair. But with a bit of skill, you can manage that too.

Cormoran Pro Carp Fishing Chair Model 7200 m

The AnzeigeCormoran Pro Carp Fishing Chair is one of the few chairs with an extra high backrest. Therefore it is also possible to lean your head against the backrest. Additionally the headrest is upholstered for more comfort in the head area. The upholstery adapts itself comfortably to the back so that you can sit on the chair for a longer period of time without getting backache. However, there are more comfortable upholsteries which are much softer. Here, everyone has to decide for himself whether comfort or price is more important to him.

What we also liked very much is that all 4 chair legs can be varied in height. This makes it easy to adapt to uneven terrain. Unfortunately the backrest cannot be adjusted. Here, for better or worse, you have to make do with one position. In the long run this can of course reduce the comfort a little.

Also not so great is that the rear feet cannot be folded down. This means that they are always a little obstructive during transport. Nevertheless, the fishing chair can easily be stowed away in any car boot.

Conclusion of the fishing chair test

The Cormoran Pro Carp is completely ok from the seat comfort, but you should not expect miracles. It is a pity that the backrest cannot be adjusted. Also it is a little bit obstructive during transport on foot because of the protruding legs. But apart from that this fishing chair is a solid alternative if you don’t want to spend so much money.


The fishing chair AnzeigeMAD SIESTA RELAX CHAIR ALLOY arrived relatively quickly. Within 2 days we could sit on it for the first time. It is slightly higher than the fishing chair from the previous fishing chair test. Because it has a higher backrest. It is also 3 kg lighter and therefore has a total weight of only 5 kg. This of course has a positive effect on the transport characteristics, as it is much easier to transport.

We liked the fact that it has a total of 8 different backrest positions. You can even almost lie in it. There really should be a suitable setting for everyone. In any case, you can relax in it very well. In addition, the front legs can also be adjusted. Especially when you are fishing on the shore, it often happens that you sit on a slope. The two plate feet are very easy to adjust to the unevenness of the ground. This does not apply to the rear foot area. This is at ground level and cannot be adjusted separately.

It can also be transported very easily and is very comfortable to carry due to its small dimensions of 56 x 45 x 15 cm. This is an important feature, especially if you have to walk a long way to the water.

DAM Fishing chair Luxus made of aluminium without armrests

When you look at the displayDAM Luxus fishing chair, the first thing you notice is that it comes without armrests. However, this also makes it considerably lighter.  The total weight of 4.8 kg makes it one of the lightest fishing chairs tested here. The frame is made entirely of high-quality aluminium. This of course has a very positive effect on the transport characteristics. Furthermore, it is very easy to fold up and store in the boot, for example.

The quality and workmanship is really very good. We have found no tears, burst seams or material defects. Neither on the upholstery nor on the frame or the chair feet. All 4 chair feet can be adjusted to the surface without problems. This means that you can almost always sit on a horizontal surface. Furthermore, it has so-called plate-shaped mud feet which prevent the chair from sinking into the ground. Especially on muddy or humid banks this is a very good feature.

The seat is also very comfortable. The material is windproof and you won’t get a cold back or start to freeze from behind. Even your own body heat is stored a little. Even during short rain showers the water simply rolls off. This makes the fishing chair much easier to clean.

Conclusion on the fishing chair Test

If you can do without armrests and go fishing occasionally, this fishing chair is definitely the right choice for you. Also the transport characteristics, respectively the small storage space for the fishing chair could convince us. All in all, a great chair for short but comfortable sitting fishing. We can recommend it.

Cormoran PRO CARP Fishing chair with armrests, model 7300

With the AnzeigeCormoran PRO CARP fishing chair we noticed immediately that it has a lateral wind protection. Therefore the wind does not pull at all at the hip and the back. For people who are normally sensitive to cold or who get “pull” quickly – ideal.

We like the fact that all 4 legs can be individually adjusted in height. This means that the fishing chair can also be adjusted and placed on uneven surfaces. The locking mechanism also folds relatively easily. In addition, the seat height is approx. 60 cm when the chair legs are fully extended. This is especially ideal for tall people as it also takes ergonomics into account.

However, the leg construction seems a bit rickety to us. Especially if you are a bit heavier (over 120 kg) you should be careful or choose another chair. This chair will also be too narrow for wide people.

All in all, the Comoran fishing chair is ok. However, we strongly advise against using the chair for heavy persons. There is too great a danger that the metal legs will bend or break off. Otherwise the transport weight is ok. It is also relatively easy to carry. We can recommend the fishing chair to all those who do not want to spend so much money and are a little “lighter”. 😀 The fishing place also has the Cormoran PRO CARP fishing chair. But here you have to be lucky that it is not sold out because of the price.

DAM Fishing chair with can holder

First of all we noticed that the AnzeigeDAM fishing chair with can holder is very cheap. It can already be purchased for less than 50 Euro at amazon or the fishing place. Despite the fact that it makes a somewhat shaky first impression, it is extremely stable. So you can expect a maximum load of up to 130 kg. We tested it ourselves with a 120 kg person and had absolutely no problems.

We also like the fact that it comes with 2 cup holders. Each cup holder is integrated into the armrests. Perfect if you want to enjoy a cold Becks at the lake. In addition, the DAM fishing chair with can holder also has a headrest which is very comfortable. If you don’t like the headrest, you can easily remove it with the attached velcro fastener.

It is also very comfortable. You sit very comfortably in it and the backrest or seat adapts perfectly to your back. In addition, it has the lowest transport weight among the fishing chairs in the fishing chair test. The complete chair is delivered in a simple carrying bag, so it is even easier to transport. Therefore you don’t have to worry about the transport.
