The Outwell Trelew Chairs are big and comfortable. Now little kids can enjoy it too with a special kid-sized version. The Mayho family put it to the test.
Using the Outwell Trelew Summer Kids Chair
So easy to use that even a camping novice with three kids in tow could do it!
Open the bag, shake it out. Pull the handles away from each other to pop it up.
It was a little bit like ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ at the campsite when the boys were testing this out: Bobby (7) Joe (5) Billy (nearly 2)
Outwell suggest this is suitable for weights up to 50kg. One thing we found was that the bigger you are, the easier it is to tip out, so worth bearing in mind, especially if you have children of that inclination.
this is a really sturdy little chair
For a mummy/baby bear size child this is a really sturdy little chair and would be fine, but a daddy bear size child may need a slightly bigger model.
Transporting and setting up the chair
Folded down pack size 11 x 17 x 50cm, and a weight of 1.9 kg.
it’s great for even little legs to climb into unaided
When it is taken out the easy to carry storage bag, the seated height is 30cm, so it’s great for even little legs to climb into unaided.
The practical mum point of view – it drys out quickly when it gets wet, as I discovered after I’d left it outside overnight on the first night of our trip.
It’s easy to clean, surviving pasta sauce
It’s easy to clean, surviving pasta sauce.
It pops up really quickly when you really don’t have time to worry about assembling chairs because you’re battling to put the tent up, and, probably best of all, there is little chance of a small person getting their fingers caught in the mechanism.
For us, perfect!
Many thanks to Outwell for sending over the Trelew Summer Kids chair for testing and reviewing. All opinions are those of our contributor.

- Comfortable and opens out in seconds.
- It seems slightly on the heavy side at 1.9kg, which is fine if you are literally throwing your stuff out the boot of the car to set up camp, but not so great if you have to walk any distance.
