In the run-up to the test, we defined practical requirements and the following test criteria:
In order to be able to evaluate these criteria, we have defined several tests for the camping chairs. First, the scope of delivery and functionality are checked. The chairs are assembled as recommended by the manufacturer and stowed in the enclosed carrying bag, checking handling and transport. All chairs are tested in the further test procedures. Meanwhile, ergonomics and comfort are assessed.
It is also tested whether the chairs offer the best possible comfort even after sitting for long periods. It is also tested how stable the chairs are and how easily they tip over with or without load. Finally, the workmanship of the camping chairs is closely examined.
In order to avoid mistakes and to ensure the load of everyday use, each test takes place in several rounds.
The test criteria are given percentages depending on their importance. The final score is then objectively calculated from the test criteria using an algorithm.
Our product selection is based on an observation of the current market. In addition to popular branded products, we also include insider tips in our selection. Criteria such as price and range of functions are an important factor for us. The test field is also determined by analysis and evaluation of customer reviews and external tests (e.g. Stiftung Warentest).
The devices are purchased anonymously or lent to us by the manufacturer. Dealers and manufacturers have no influence on the tests and our evaluation.
As soon as new relevant products come onto the market, our test field is extended by these. The new products go through the same test as the already tested devices.
