Vango radiate chair review

Whilst the deep red colour of the chair might not be to everyones taste, we quite liked it and the fabric iteself feels like it’s strong and durable.

One of the best things about the chair is the amount of positions you can choose to sit in. Bolt upright was our least favourite, but there are so many options, it’s impossible not to find a position that’s comfortable.

The button that powers the heated element of the chair

To adjust the seat back, you just lift the armrests to release and either lean back or pull the seat back forwards. We found adjusting position was nice and easy and that most positions were comfortable, though my husband soon claimed the chair for himself and spent our most recent camping trip almost horizontal on it for most of the time.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
