What this is about

This chair is currently one of just a few chairs of this type on the market. But there is no doubt there will be much more available soon, they are becoming popular.

This all started with the great series of Nemo when they launched several chairs of this type. Then there was this Rio Gear Chair which is more similar to the chair presented here. 

So you could describe it as a hammock chair or as a swing chair, in any case, it has some interesting features and it is freestanding. They use the name Folding in the name, and this indicates that there is no particular assembly, it folds easily and you can store it in its included carry bag shown below.

The backrest is high and it ends up with a nicely padded head pillow. This is why I have included it in my list of chairs with a headrest.

Pleasant headrest.

On the sides you have solid bars as armrests, they are inside the sleeves so you do not touch metal anywhere. They also double as the attaching elements, as you see from the pictures, there are straps that attach the seat to the two side pillars. This is what allows the chair to sway and swing.

There is also a side pouch for a bottle or anything similar, to keep your small things close at hand.

Materials

The frame consists of many powder-coated steel tubes that are 22 mm in diameter. The picture below shows the triangular structures on the base of the frame.

The fabric is a 600D oxford polyester, this material is commonly used for such chairs. The big part of the backrest is a mesh, so this is a breathable construction suitable for warm weather.

The feet are also nicely designed with non-sleep caps, see one of them below. I would not use this in a floored family camping tent without some extra protection.

Who is it for

Capacity-wise, this chair is indeed impressive. The official capacity is 500 lb (227 kg), so no doubt the chair is strong enough to support almost every user. This is why I have included it in my list of camping chairs for heavy people.

Size-wise, you have some of the most important dimensions shown in the picture below. So you realize you have an enormous size here, the seat alone is around 31.5 inches (80 cm) wide. I have all the good reasons to include it in my list of chairs with a very wide seat.

Weight-wise, the chair is on the heavy side, it weighs 12.27 lb (5.56 kg). But you have seen its dimensions and the capacity, so the weight is justified.

The packed size is also less impressive, it is a bit long when packed in its carry bag. So this is a camping chair for places with a car access.

Regarding the price, in view of its all features, this is more than fair for what you get. A true bargain.

    Thank you so much, I ordered a chair like this a year ago from somewhere else and got a foot rest. So I have been wanting one for a very long time, I was looking at the others but with the size of this one I am going to get it. Personally I like to curl up in my chair and this sounds purfect with a blanket and a coffee.

    1. Thank you Bernadette, it is great to hear about your experience with this type of camping chairs. There are just a few of them currently on the market.
