Who is this REI Co-op Camp Xtra Chair for

Regarding the capacity, the chair is impressive with its 400 lb (181 kg). This is why I have included it in my list of chairs for heavy people.

Regarding the dimensions, they are very good but I do not see much Xtra here, the chair measures (L x W x H) 24.5 x 24.75 x 34.25 inches (62 x 63 x 87 cm). You do not have a headrest here.

Regarding the weight, the chair can be described as moderately heavy with its 10 lb (4.5 kg). You have already seen its packed size, so it is a bit long. All in all, this is a car camping chair.
