So what this GCI SunShade Comfort Pro Chair is about
All the elements in the picture above are permanently pre-attached to each other, so this is a true folding chair without assembly. You open it in seconds, and equally fast you can fold it and store it in its included wide-mouth carry bag shown in the picture below.
One of its important features is the sunshade shown below. It is adjustable in the sense that you can change the angle in the forward-backward direction. It is pre-attached to the chair and it folds and packs together with the chair.
The chair comes with soft armrests, and you have a cup/bottle holder in one of them, it is shown below:
You also have a small pouch on the opposite side to store your phone:
The fabric is a ripstop polyester, so this is a very durable material. The backrest is almost all a breathable nylon mesh. The sunshade is with UPF 50+ rating. Note that they build this chair in two great colors shown in the pictures here.
The frame is steel and the feet are with narrow plastic caps, so I would not use it in a floored family camping tent.
Who is it for
Regarding the size, you can see the most important numbers in the picture below. So the seat is very wide and it is also very high. This makes it suitable for tall users. It may be also a good option for elderly people who find it difficult to get out of a low seat.
Regarding capacity, officially the chair is built to support the weight of up to 300 lb (136 kg). This is quite a typical number for camping chairs. If this is not enough for you, please check my list of chairs for heavy people.
Regarding the weight, you have a chair that weighs 9.3 lb (4.3 kg). So it is moderately heavy. The packed size is also such that you need a car for transportation.
Regarding the price, it is more than fair for what you have here, a true bargain.
- Weight: 9.3 lb (4.3 kg).
- Capacity: 300 lb (136 kg).
- Dimensions (H x W x D): 36 x 34.8 x 25.6 in (91 x 88 x 65 cm).
- Seat height: 20.7 in (53 cm).
- Packed size: 44.1 x 7.1 x 5.5 in (112 x 18 x 14 cm).

User Review( votes)
So this GCI Outdoor SunShade Comfort Pro Chair is very nicely built, but you would not expect less from a brand with the name that means ‘great chair innovations’.
If you are new to this, then to know that GCI is specialized in building outdoor chairs and it is globally known. Fully recommended. Because of its 20.7 inches (53 cm) high seat, it is in my list of camp chairs for tall people.
