What is in the name
Here you have an easy to use folding and collapsible chair as they describe it already in its name. The meaning is that it is almost without any assembly.
When you want to pack it, you detach the backrest poles from the frame as visible in the picture below, and place them on the seat. The fabric will still keep these upper poles attached to the rest. Then you simply grab the seat poles on the sides and pull up, the chair will fold as the picture shows.
The X-shaped support bars are with rivets that allow for rotating motion so the chair folds and becomes very thin as shown in the picture below.
As you realize it remains large in the other two dimensions. This is because of its solid and padded armrests. So this is a kind of trade-off, with solid armrests it is easier to get in and out, but the packed size because of that is 29 x 25 x 5 inches (74 x 64 x 13 cm).
Backpack style carry system
The picture above shows how the chair can be carried as a backpack. This is because of its nicely designed shoulder straps shown below.
Now, this system looks cool, but because of this, the chair comes without the usual carry bag.
This is one of its cool features. The rails are pre-attached and this all is alloy steel with some plastic joints. There is no statement about the fabric but this is clearly polyester, and a breathable mesh on the back that makes it suitable for warm weather use.
There are several elements here and you can see them in the picture below. They include:
- A large mesh pouch on the right, located behind the shoulder straps. Here you can store large items like books or magazines.
- A zippered cooler on the left. Note that this piece is detachable.
- A mesh cup holder.
I would add that I have no idea why they use the word Director in the name, but perhaps this is because of the cooler.
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, they describe the chair as ‘built tough”. In fact, it looks so with its oval tubing, but the official capacity is quite modest 250 lb (113 kg). So if you need something stronger, check my list of chairs for heavy people.
Regarding the dimensions, the chair measures (W x D x H) 24 x 35 x 36 inches (61 x 89 x 91 cm). So the seat is quite wide and the overall size is very good, but if you still want more space, check these chairs with very wide seats.
Regarding the packed size, the chair is bulky when packed so for transportation you need a car. For shorter distances, you have already seen how it can be carried, so this is doable if you are on a short bicycle trip.
Regarding the price, I would describe it as quite fair for what you have here, a proper value/price combination.
- Weight: 13.2 lb (6 kg).
- Capacity: 250 lb (113 kg).
- Dimensions (W x D x H): 24 x 35 x 36 in (61 x 89 x 91 cm).
- Packed size: 29 x 25 x 5 in (74 x 64 x 13 cm).
- Frame: steel.
