What this is about

The canopy: The most prominent feature is the canopy which you see in the picture above. Note that it is fixed in one position, the only other position is behind the backrest when you do not need it. So it folds back, and this is how you pack it together with the chair.

The canopy fabric provides shade and UV protection, its rating is UPF 50+ so this is among the highest-rated. This level of protection is described also as Excellent. Because of all this, I have included the chair in my list of best chairs with canopy.

The frame is an anti-rust hammer tone powder coating steel. It has those X-shaped support bars on all sides, but there are also legs on all 4 corners, see the picture. The tubes are 0.9 inches (2.3 cm) in the diameter.

If you compare it with this Quik Shade MAX Shade Chair where front vertical legs are missing, and there are only X-shaped bars, you realize immediately that its frame is stronger.

The fabric is an Oxford polyester combined with a reinforced breathable mesh. I already mentioned what you have as a canopy.

The feet are wide, see the picture above, but this is a quite typical design for such folding chairs. So the chair will not sink easily if you use it on soft ground.

Who is it for

Regarding the capacity, officially this chair supports up to 350 lb (159 kg). This should be good enough for the majority of users.

Regarding the weight, the chair is heavy with its 14 lb (6.35 kg). It is also long when packed, this is a tube 53.9 inches (137 cm) long. So you need a car for transportation.

Regarding the dimensions, this is a large chair. The seat is 20 inches (51 cm) above ground, and this makes it suitable for tall users, and also for elderly people because it is easy to get in and out.
