What this is about
Here you have a patented design, a folding chair with a canopy. So the canopy is its best feature, it folds together with the chair and it is fully adjustable. The length of the canopy is 76 cm and its widest part is 86 cm. These dimensions are behind the word Max in the name.
Note that the canopy is not designed to be removable but it can be removed, I have seen some people asking about it. Instead of removing it, you can simply fold it completely on the back. In view of all these features, I have added the chair to my list of camping chairs with a canopy.
The picture above shows the underside of the canopy so you can see several bars that allow you to adjust it in various ways. The central roof bar allows you also to expand it more or less, as it suits you best. You can also move the canopy forward or backward, and you can angle the sides differently.
The chair comes with a carry bag equipped with a strap so you can carry it attached to your shoulder. The picture shows how it looks in such a case, observe that the canopy folds and packs together with the chair.
Note that the backrest is high but it will not provide a headrest unless you are really short. If this is what you need please check my list of best chairs with headrest.
There are two beverage holders integrated in its soft armrests. You also have a sizeable storage pouch on one side, see the pictures.
The frame is steel and they used tubes with 16 mm diameter. The fabric is a 300 x 600D polyester, water and stain-resistant.
Who is it for
Size-wise, the chair is quite big and its seat is (W x D): 22.8 x 22.8 inches (58 x 58 cm), so I think it is suitable even for very big people. The seat is 18.5 inches (47 cm) above ground and this is quite moderate, perhaps even too high if you use it on the beach.
The two armrests have metal parts on the front and this helps to get in and out, suitable for elderly users. Note that the canopy is very high and you realize this from the picture below.
Capacity-wise, the chair is designed for users up to 225 lb (102 kg). So this is quite moderate and if you need much more check my list with chairs for heavy people.
Regarding the design, in view of its canopy, you can surely use it at the beach, at sports events, for camping, and literally anywhere.
Regarding the weight, the chair is moderate with its 9.6 lb (4.35 kg). In view of the shade with its multiple bars, I think this is very reasonable.
Regarding the packed size, it is a bit long when packed. This is a tube of the size 37.4 x 7.5 x 6.3 inches (95 x 19 x 16 cm).
So all in all, this is a chair for places with a car access. The feet are such that it will not sink easily in the ground.
Regarding the price, the chair is simply a bargain. You can see the price here, it is updated regularly and you can also follow the links to check from your side.
