What this is about

They have launched a series of chairs under their Forester collection, and all are built from the same materials and in the same color. 

There is no assembly here, this one of those folding chairs that fold like an umbrella. So it becomes an elongated tube when packed in its included carry bag shown below.

The dimensions when packed are 37.5 x 8 x 7.5 inches (95 x 20 x 19 cm). So you realize it is a bit long but it is thin, so it will not take much space in the car trunk.

A carry bag is included.

From a chair that folds like described above, you would not expect to have solid armrests. So this is indeed a clever design, the armrests are even with padding as you see in the picture. A bottle holder is also at hand.

The frame is steel and you can see from the pictures that it has those X-crossed poles on the front and on the back. This makes it very stable against any movement.

Observe also that the feet are wide so this chair will not easily sink in a soft ground. Up to some extent it is safe even to be used in a floored family camping tent.

The fabric is a polyester, and this is the color if the whole collection, you can see it also in this Forester Series Bucket Chair and the Forester Series Sling Chair.

Who is it for

Regarding the capacity, the chair is quite typical with its 250 lb (113 kg). I would expect even more in view if its construction.

Regarding the dimensions, it is again quite standard, the other two chairs from this collection (linkes given above) have a higher backrest, just to know.

Regarding the weight, it is on the heavy side with its 11 lb 8 oz (5.2 kg). It is still a bit lighter than its cousin the Forester Series Sling Chair.

Regarding the price, it is simply amazing for such a solid built chair, a true bargain.
