While on our summer holiday in the South of France one of our chairs broke. No problem at home, nip to Go Outdoors or any of the Mirryad of camping supply shops.
In France these shops are a little harder to find. Lots of camping equipment seems to come from Decathlon and we did try here first but they only had flimsy folding chairs.
Google to the rescue and a caravan dealer/accessory shop was found on the other side of Perpignan. They were stockists for Narbonne Accessories who have 67 shops around France. They had a decent range of chairs to choose from.
They stocked Westfield Outdoor products, a company I had never heard of before.
We tried out all of the chairs and decided that the Cross Compact was the one but at €144.00 it was quite pricey!
The real advantage with this chair is if you’re a bit on the heavy side like me there are no flimsy plastic components all of the folding mechanism is metal. The armrests are about the only plastic parts. The chair also comes with a 5 year guarantee.
The seat and back rest are both padded and the top of the backrest houses a luxurious pillow.
This chair is very comfortable and very sturdy.
The other advantage was when I got to the checkout the chair was actually only €110.00. Result!
