What is in the name
The first thing to notice is that this is a chair from the Bushtec Adventure brand that is known for the quality and durability of their outdoor products. This Oversized Camping Chair Charlie 440 is a great example that demonstrates this.
So the number 440 in its name denotes the weight capacity in pounds, and this is a folding and easy to use chair that you can make ready in seconds. I have included it in my list of best folding camping chairs. It comes with a nice carry bag shown in the picture.
This is a tall chair so you have a headrest. There is a zippered pocket on the top and the carry bag shown above can be rolled and stored there:
So when you close it, you have a nice headrest with the brand’s logo on it, see the picture:
There is also a side pocket on the left side. The chair comes with great bottle holders on both side, see how they look:
The chair is with soft armrests supported by the side bars. So getting in and out is easy.
The fabric is a padded 600D polyester canvas with what they describe a double shock absorber system. They claim it is “the most comfortable luxury chair in the market”, they might be close to this but I do think they exaggerate a bit.
The frame is a coated aluminum and steel combination, and it includes tubes of 16 mm, 19 mm, and 20 mm in the diameter.
Who is it for
Capacity-wise, I already mentioned, this chair can support the weight of 440 lb (200 kg). So this is why I have included it in my list of chairs for very heavy people.
This capacity is not a surprise when you see its frame with those X-shaped bars on all sides and the thick tubes.
Size-wise, the dimensions are exceptional, the chair measures 42 x 38 x 22 inches (107 x 96 x 56 cm). So this is for tall people and I have added it to the list of high back camping chairs with headrest.
Weight-wise, well, this is not its best feature. The weight is 18 lb (8.16 kg), so this is not something to carry anywhere.
The packed size is also not so great, the dimensions of its carry bag are 42 x 38 x 22 inches (107 x 96 x 56 cm). All in all, this is a car camping basecamp chair.
The feet are wide and floor friendly, and they will not easily sink in the ground.
The numbers presented here are from the manufacturer:
- Weight: 18 lb (8.16 kg).
- Capacity: 440 lb (200 kg).
- Dimensions: 42 x 38 x 22 in (107 x 96 x 56 cm).
- Packed size: 42 x 9 x 8 in (107 x 23 x 20 cm).

In the summary of this Bushtec Adventure Oversized Camping Chair Charlie 440 review, I wish to stress again that this is a top-quality product from a very respectable brand.
It is indeed heavy but this is because of the quality and durability of its materials. The price/value combination here is hard to match. Fully recommended.
