What type of chair is this
This Guide Gear Oversized Club Camp Chair is what its name says, a very large and comfortable folding camping chair which needs no assembly when you use it, just spread it in seconds. I have added it to my list of best folding camping chairs.
When you take it away, you fold it and pack into its included storage bag which is with straps, the picture below shows its design. The packed size is 42.1 x 12.6 x 11 inches (107 x 32 x 28 cm) so it is quite long.
The chair is built in three different and beautiful colors. On the side, you have a storage system with a mesh pocket and a cup holder:
The fabric which you see in the pictures includes an extra plush padding, and this all is removable and washable. The fabric is very durable 600D polyurethane-coated polyester.
The frame is steel and as you see from the pictures there are several support bars and X-structures, so this is a very stable and robust construction. The chair is with solid armrests but you have padding there as well. With such a design it is easy to get in and out of the chair.
Note also that this is Amazon’s Choice item, and this implies that Amazon recommends it as a highly rated and well-priced product, and it is also available to ship immediately.
Who is it for
Capacity-wise, this is an impressive chair which supports the weight of up to 500 lb (227 kg). If you follow sumo then you probably know that currently, the heaviest sumo wrestler is Ichinojo with exactly this weight. So this chair is strong enough even for such big guys. It is included in my list of extra strong camping chairs for heavy people.
Size-wise, this chair is really large (W x D x H) 34 x 25 x 37 inches (86 x 64 x 94 cm). But note that it does not provide headrest, so if this is important to you please check my list with chairs with headrest.
Weight-wise, this chair is on the heavy side with its 13.12 lb (6 kg). But this is a normal weight for a chair with such a capacity. In view of this and its earlier mentioned packed size, this is a chair for places with a car access.
The feet are with wide plastic caps so this is a floor-friendly design. But if you plan to use it in a large family camping tent, it is best to add some carpet to protect the floor.
My rating, pros & cons
This chair is on the market with the price tag shown in the link below. It is pricey but you have seen how comfortable it looks.
It has received a number of reports by Amazon customers and the average rating is exceptionally high. I am not surprised by this. My rating is a bit different but I use a set of criteria and apply them consistently to all the chairs here in the site for easy comparison:
