The feat are wide and this is a floor friendly design. With a bit of care, this may be safe to use even in a floored tent.

The fabric is a 100% recycled polyester. They claim it is treated with a PFAS-free durable water repellent (DWR) finish to repel light rain.

They also write that the chair is built from recycled materials and it meets the bluesign critera.

Who is it for

Regarding the capacity, the chair is quite typical with its 300 lb (136 kg). This should be good enough for most of users, but if you still need more, please check my list of camping chairs for heavy people.

Regarding the dimensions, they are good, you will see the numbers below. Note that the seat height is 16 inches (41 cm), so it is a bit low. The seat width is very good 22 inches (56 cm).

Regarding the weight, this is a moderately light outdoor chair, it weighs 7 lb 13 oz (3.5 kg). You have already seen its packed size, so it is a bit long but thin.

Regarding the price, I think it is fair for such a quality product.

  • Capacity: 300 lb (136 kg).
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 35.8 x 24 x 21 in (91 x 61 x 53 cm).
