- Great capacity.
- Incredible price.
This brand is known for its famous ALPS Mountaineering King Kong Camping Chair that has been on the market for many years. So they have finally decided to build a two-person version of it.
It follows the same design, and this means it is very easy to use and folding. This is all one piece so there is no assembly of any kind. Below you can see how it looks when folded.
For transportation and for storage you have its included carry bag shown in the picture above. It measures 34.8 x 12.3 x 8 inches (88 x 31 x 20 cm). As you see, it is with dual straps so you can carry it as a backpack.
The chair comes with storage pouches on the sides, and each armrest is with a mesh bottle holder. You can see them in the picture:
The chair is supported with a powder-coated steel frame. The frame includes numerous X-crossed support bars that stabilize it to lateral movement.
The feet are some sort of plastic, and they are wide, so the chair will not easily sink into the ground.
The fabric is a 600-denier polyester, and from the pictures you realize that they make it in two different colors.
Observe also that this is a quilted structure, and there is some padding. I could not find information about it.
The armrests are soft, and they are adjustable. The picture below shows the strap on the rear side which you can use to adjust the armrest.
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, the total capacity is the same as in its mentioned single-version cousin, and this means 400+400 lb (181+181 kg). The numbers are for each side separately. This should be good enough for most couples.
This great capacity is because of its strong and stable frame with those support bars. This is why I have included it in my list of chairs for heavy people.
Regarding the dimensions, I would describe it as typical for such two-person camping chairs. It measures (L x D x H) 56.5 x 19.25 x 32 inches (143 x 49 x 81 cm). You can compare it with some of its competitors that are in my list of double camping chairs.
Note that the seat is 19 inches (48 cm) high, and this is again quite moderate. So getting in and out of the chair should not be difficult for elderly users.
Regarding the weight, it is moderate, almost the same weight as the Kelty Loveseat. But if this is too heavy, you can consider this Arrowhead Outdoor Portable Folding Double Duo Camping Chair or the Coleman Living Collection Bench which is ultralight.
You have already seen its packed size so this is a bit bulky but this is still quite good for a double-wide chair.
Regarding the price, there are differences at various sellers, so check the links given below in the text. In any case, it is more than fair for such a quality double-wide chair.
- Weight: 16.3 lb (7.4 kg).
- Capacity: 400+400 lb (181+181 kg).
- Dimensions (L x D x H): 56.5 x 19.25 x 32 in (143 x 49 x 81 cm).
- Folded dimensions: 34.8 x 12.3 x 8 in (88 x 31 x 20 cm).
- Seat height: 19 in (48 cm).
- Frame: steel.
