I am 6'6" and over 300#s and this is a comfortable, solid chair that I don't worry about crashing down into. It is rock solid when you are getting up. The front pipes dig into my legs a little when I lean forward. If I lean back and relax it is fine. Very compfortable. I would buy it agian.

It's HUGE, it's HEAVY, it comes with it's own BACKPACK, it's LOADED with stash pockets and cup holders, and it can hold 800 POUNDS -- This is the chair designed with me in mind.
All the reviews i read said how well-crafted these things are. True, the steel frame is rock solid and the armrests can handle about as much load as the seat itself. The polyester fabric looked to be of acceptable quality, but that is something that can only be judged after several years of use. The down-side of the fabric is that it's quilted and has a bit of padding in it (spun polyester i'd guess), so the seat holds quite a bit of body heat and it makes for a sweaty backside even on a modestly temperate day (80°F on the one day i field tested it). That alone wouldn't be enough to kill the deal either, as i would happily reserve this chair for cooler weather where the seats insulative qualities would be more than welcome. The real problem is that the seat fabric has a bit of hammock design so it offers very poor back support -- after 2 hours sitting in this thing, i would have been better off sitting on the ground.
Since i only used it the one time before returning it, i didn't really get to test out all the other features, but i can add that the cup holders are sized for 12oz cans -- if you use a "coolie cup" it's not going to fit in the holders.
Sorry, ALPS, i really wanted to love this chair; with the quality of the materials i'm sure it would last me a solid 10+ years, i was just far too uncomfortable to accept.
I've been left with a disability that makes it very difficult physically (and mentally) to get up/out of the typical "lawn" chair. This chair gives me plenty of seating room and is sturdy enough that I'm able to remain confident that I won't go tipping over when I get up!

Excellent chair. Got tired of replacing cheap ones every year. This one holds-up to constant use and sometimes - abuse.
Good size and color. Excellent quality. If you are short/have short legs, you may experience a Goldilock effect, as if sitting in Pappa Bear's chair. Best for tall/large person.

Nice fabric and well made with corner reinforcements and attention to detail on the finished edges. Great carrying case and like the feature that allows it to be carried like a backpack. Cup holders and side pockets and a back pocket large enough to hold the carrying bag when open. Purchased for my bbw sister who had one of those moments when her sporting goods store model chair collapsed when she was seated in it. She'd sworn off portable chairs ever since and missed out on many family events. She used the chair the first day and felt secure and it doesn't move when she uses the arms to help support her when standing. Great purchase and she is now literally a happy camper.
How accurate was the sizing? spot on

I have only used this chair twice but but I am very satisfied with it. It is well made, sturdy and comfortable. Has great pockets on both sides for your accessories. It's a bit heavier than others but that's because of the quality.
This is one of the best chairs of this type I have ever had. It is easier to pack up and lighter weight than I thought. It is easily carried like a backpack. Depending on your body shape, it can be a little difficult to get out of. To help with that a seat cushion makes a world of difference. For short term sitting, the cushion is not needed. It was a great price. The product website shows everything else they make.
I am 6'4 and weigh 325 and camp regularly. I have been embarrassed many times by purchasing other chairs sold for big and tall people that broke while in camp or at spots events with the grand kids .finally someone has designed and built a chair for us. The King Cong chair is comfortable, sturdy and sits high enough to easily get up and out of. I have had both knees and my left hip replaced in the last two years and this chair is extremely comfortable to sit in for those nights around the campfire. Do not hesitate....BUY THIS CHAIR NOW!!
Tired of being squeezed into those small camp chairs, then this is the one that you'll find most comfortable. Big, Stable, has beverage holders and pockets for reading material, tablets, sunscreen or anything you might want to have within reach
