What this is about
This Guide Gear Oversized Tall Director’s Camp Chair is folding type, and all the pieces are permanently pre-attached to each other. So it comes ready to use, there is no assembly, and you open it and close in a second.
When not in use or for transportation, it folds flat as shown in the picture. The thickness is only 6 inches (15 cm), so it will fit in narrow spaces.
The side table
The chair comes with a side table that is pre-attached and it folds as shown above. It has an integrated bottle holder, see below how this looks.
Note also that you have solid but padded armrests so it is easy to get in and out of the chair.
The frame is a powder-coated tubular steel, and the chair has those X-crossed bars on the front and on the back.
The legs are with plastic caps, see the picture below, so this is a floor friendly design. But I would not use it without some extra protection in a floored family camping tent.
Note that it has those connecting bars close to the ground. So if you use the chair on a soft ground, it will never sink too much. These bars will prevent sinking and the weight will be distributed.
The fabric is a heavy-duty 600D polyester. Note that they offer two different colors.
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, the chair is impressive, it supports the weight of up to 500 lb (227 kg). This should be good enough for everybody. This is why it is in my list of chairs for heavy people.
Regarding the dimensions, it is built on purpose with a very high seat which is 22 inches (56 cm) above the ground. The seat is also very wide, you have 20 inches (51 cm).
So the chair is ideal for tall users, and also for elderly users, those solid armrests help in getting in and out.
Regarding the weight, the chair is on the heavy side with its 16.9 lb (7.66 kg). As for the packed size, the chair is large in two dimensions, but as mentioned above, it is thin when folded.
Regarding the price, I think this is reasonable for such a specific chair. There are cheaper options on the market but not with such features and quality.
