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.
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.
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.
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, the official capacity is 350 lb (159 kg), so no doubt the chair is strong enough to support most of user.
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.
