This chair advertises that it is rated for up to 500 lbs, and it probably would hold a 500 pound person except for the fact that there is no way a 500 pound butt would fit in it. It is barely wide enough for a 200 lb. butt. Sorry so graphic but I bought this for my husband and he is nowhere near 500 lbs. and he won't use this chair because it is not wide enough for him and he says it's uncomfortable because of that. If you are just interested in something heavy-duty and not wide, this chair is for you. Otherwise don't buy it!!
browning makes a great product. The problem comes that you must be a 34 inch waist and about 5'6 to fit in the chair. These chairs fit us fine but the point of the heavy duty chair is that when larger people sit in them, they fit. NOPE! do not purchase this chair if you are looking for large size people chair. What a mistake Browning made with advertising 500lb weight capacity. these chairs are the standard $10 chairs you find anywhere with a better quality. If you are looking a great quality chair for a standard size person without the weight being an issue, buy this chair. We are looking for a chair that holds a lot of weight, for large spaced peoples.

I have had Browning camp chairs before and have loved them. However this one was not as comfortable as the past ones. The arms were fabric rather than the metal composition material of the earlier chairs. In addition, the edge of the chair seat hit the back of the sitter's legs in an uncomfortable way. Several friends sat in my other Browning chair and the new one and agreed. Returning the product was a bit difficult because I did not have access to a computer at that time. I would prefer it if Overstock.com would refund shipping charges too.

This appears to be a very well made frame. However, do not be fooled by the 500 pound weight capacity. This seems to be intended for a very thin man who happens to have a 400 pound brick in his lap. It is way to narrow for me (A 300 pound man). If you are a smaller person who needs a rugged chair, this will probably work fine. If you are a fat man, like me, you will need to look elsewhere.
