What this is about
So here you have a set of two items shown in the picture below, a large and nicely padded oversized club camp chair and a separate foot stool. Both are folding, so there is no assembly of any kind. You open and close the chair in seconds.
Both elements fit in the nice carry bag shown in the picture.
The chair is generously padded and you can realize this from the pictures. You have padding throughout its surface. This is why I have included it in my list of best padded camping chairs.
Multiple storage features
Only when you have such features in your chair and you try them, you realize how useful they are. They help you to stay organized and to keep small items off the ground and close at hand.
Here you have them several, to start with the side mesh pouches integrated in the armrests, one is visible in the picture below. Each of them measures 13 x 6 inches (33 x 15 cm).
You also have a smaller hanging mesh pouch shown below:
There is also a cup holder with a drawstring so you can put bottles of various sizes:
The foot stool
The foot stool is square and its dimensions are 18 x 18 x 15 inches (46 x 46 x 38 cm). It may look like a stool for sitting but note that it is not built for such a use. Its weight capacity is 80 lb (36 kg).
With such a capacity it is good enough as a footrest as the picture shows. You can use it also as a side table to put your phone, a book, newspaper or anything similar.
The Foot Stool includes a 600D polyester with PVC coating for water resistance. There is a bit of padding on its surface. The frame is a powder-coated steel. The same materials are used also in the main chair.
Who is this set for
Regarding the capacity, the declared value is 500 lb (227 kg). So this chair is for everybody, and this includes even the heaviest users. I have included it in my list of camping chairs for heavy people.
Regarding the size, the chair is very large, and you will see below how I rate it. The seat alone measures 20 x 20 inches (51 x 51 cm), and it 20 inches (51 cm) high. So the chair is very suitable for tall and big users.
Regarding the weight, the chair is on the heavy side with its 13.12 lb (6 kg), but this is fully justified in view of its size and features.
The packed size is not its best feature. However, you have two separate elements, the chair is very big, and it includes lots of bulky padding. So such a packed size is expected.
- Weight: 13.12 lb (6 kg).
- Capacity: 500 lb (227 kg).
- Dimensions: 34 x 27 x 36 in (86 x 69 x 91 cm).
- Seat dimensions: 20 x 20 in (51 x 51 cm).
- Seat height: 20 in (51 cm).
- Foot stool weight: 3.84 lb (1.74 kg).
- Foot stool capacity: 80 lb (36 kg).
- Foot stool dimensions: 18 x 18 x 15 in (46 x 38 cm).
- Packed size: 42.25 x 14.5 x 13 in (107 x 37 x 33 cm).
Accessory Guide Gear Club Chair Cover
Note that they have a Guide Gear Club Chair Cover, it is inexpensive and useful to protect the chair from dust and from light rain. The cover is equipped with a drawstring on bottom, so you put it on the club chair from above and then just tighten the drawstring to keep it in place.
The material of the cover is a water-resistant 410D polyester with taped seams. It has its own storage pouch with drawstring closure.
