Where to buy

So what this is about

You have seen above the list of the most important features, so this is indeed an incredibly feature-rich chair. This is a folding type, so you fold it like a book and it packs nicely to its included carry bag (shown below) which is of the size 28 x 25 x 10 inches (71 x 64 x 25 cm), see the picture:

It is padded throughout its seat and the backrest, and the padding is also on the footrest. You have one inch of open-cell foam of padding. So I have added it to my list of best padded camping chairs.

The footrest

The footrest itself is very large, 26 x 26 inches (66 x 66 cm), see the picture below with its main features. It extends the seat to a total length of 58 inches (147 cm). Now, because of this large and comfortable footrest, I have added it to my list of best camping chairs with footrest. Note that they have yet another version without the footrest, see it here.

Armrests & headrest

You have solid armrests here and the backrest is high so the chair provides a very good headrest as well. You have a pleasant padding for the head. So I have added it to my list of best chairs with headrest.

Reclining design

This is also a reclining design and you might also use it as a cot if necessary, the backrest goes completely flat. It has up to 6 different reclining angles as illustrated in the picture below. So I have added it to my list of best reclining camping chairs.

Other features
  • The chair has independently adjustable legs, so this is a great feature which you might need in the camp or at the beach, you can always expect an uneven terrain at such places.
  • In addition to this, the wide feet are also rotating and adjustable. They are designed wide so the sinking in the ground should be minimal, see the picture.

Who is it for

Size-wise, the dimensions of this chair are impressive as you can realize from the picture below. As mentioned above, the backrest can also go to various angles and it becomes even longer:

So the chair is suitable even for very tall people. Note that the seat is around 22 in (56 cm) above the ground, and you also have those solid armrests so getting in and out should be easy even for elderly users.

Weight-wise, with its 27 lb (12.2 kg), this is a heavy item and you have already seen its packed size. So you need a car for transportation. One can only laugh after seeing the statement on Amazon that it is “lightweight and easy to storage”.

It is indeed relatively thin when packed, but the earlier mentioned carry bag is more suitable to keep it clean from dust when not in use, than for carrying it around.

Capacity-wise, the declared capacity for this chair is “only” 350 lb (159 kg). Frankly speaking, it looks capable of supporting much more.

So if you are using this chair outdoors, it is great for fishing, camping, for the beach, etc. But it is also a nice item to have in the garden and on the porch at home.

My rating, pros & cons

This chair is on the market with the price shown in the link, so this is an incredible price for such a versatile and quality item. This chair has received high ratings by Amazon customers, no doubt it deserves it.

But my own rating is quite different because I use a set of parameters and apply them consistently to all chairs presented in the site, for easy comparison. It shines where it matters most, have a look:

  1. Ross in a VW bus says:

    Hi, This chair sounds great if you can handle the size. But no cup holders? I’d have to work something out. Thanks

    1. Hi Ross, yes it is a great chair and incredibly popular. No cup holders, you are right.

  2. The chair is well crafted and quite comfortable-I especially like the removable chair cushion-the recline feature is rather cumbersome as most people expect a chair to recline from the arm rests but this chair has a ratchet type mechanism on the sides of the chair which needs to be lined up accurately or the plastic lock feature may break.
    Another issue is the footrest doesn’t lock into place, it just gets inserted into a narrow tube on each side of the chair and it has a tendency to separate if the chair is moved and then needs to be reinserted.
    Other than those two observations, the chair is well built.

    1. Thank you Noel, these are fair observations, you are right in all you are saying, I really appreciate this and readers will find it useful.

  3. I would like to know if the footrest slides under the seat when not needed or do you have to remove it?

    1. Hi Barbara, no the footrest doesn’t slide under the chair.

  4. Hello, thank you so much for this informative website‼️ I was wondering how tall you are. My husband is 6 foot 5 and about 225. I’m looking for a folding recliner where his head and feet are supported. I want to get it for him for Christmas so I can not go up to him and take a measurement. Will he be supported in this chair? What are your recommendations?

    1. Hi Sandy, in fact I am short so for me all these chairs work. But for your husband’s height and for this particular chair this can be tricky because it depends on the body structure. Some people have shorter torso and long legs, and some have it the other way around.

      There are many chairs in my separate list of chairs with a headrest which will definitely be tall enough for him. Please have a look there. The weight capacity should not be an issue with most of them. You will see some that are with a particularly high backrest, so go for one of the highest to be sure.

      Check also my list with recliners if this is the type you want, there are some that will surely work for him.
