So there is no assembly here, you simply open it or close in seconds. This is what makes it so easy to use.

Solid armrests

The chair has a frame that includes solid armrests. A cool feature here is that the fabric covering the armrests padding is removable and you can wash it.

Materials and construction

The frame is a durable aluminum with cast zinc joints. The red fabric is polyester, so it dries quickly if it gets wet. The padding on the solid armrests is a urethane foam. This is a very elegant and simplistic design.

Who is it for

Regarding the capacity, the chair is quite modest in view of its 250 lb (113 kg) official capacity. This should still be good enough for most of potential users.

On the other hand, note that it comes with an excellent warranty, so you know what you are buying.

Regarding the dimensions, it is of a moderate size, but the seat is quite wide, the overall dimensions are (L x W x H) 23.4 x 22.8 x 33 inches (59 x 58 x 84 cm).

The seat is 18 inches (46 cm) high, and with its solid armrests this is suitable for elderly users, getting in and out is easy.

On the other hand, it looks so elegant that you can use it at home as well, the picture below shows this. Instead of legs, here are two bars on the ground so this is a floor friendly design and it can be used even in floored family camping tents.

Suitable for home use.

Regarding the weight, it is moderate for such a type, it weighs 7.7 lb (3.5 kg). But the packed size is not its best feature, though it folds very thin so it fits in narrow spaces.
