I bought these for the motorhome because they fold up and yet are very sturdy and have great back support. I like them so much I got more for my parents who have trouble getting up out of most camp chairs. These are stiffer construction, and you can push off with your arms to get up. They look great, and are half the price of comparable chairs at Cabelas.

This chair seems to be very sturdy, and IMO looks nice too. However, although the chair pictured in the listing seems to have a seat height tall enough to be a director's chair, in reality the seat height is not any taller than a regular outdoor folding chair. This makes it a bit short in seat height for taller persons. And if a tall person does sit in it, the arm height is too short to do any good. My average-height wife can use it, so even though the chair is wider than she needs, we will keep it. This chair would be perfect for a wide person of average (or slightly less) height.

I have two earlier versions of this chair, which. They are black, and one that was kept outside in the intermittent sun suffered autodestruction of the fabric, resulting in ripped out seat at the side stitching, which i repaired with sewn on strips of wide nylon fabric tape. The one kept indoors looks like new after several years of very light use.
My new gray chair differs in some ways which suggest slightly greater potential service life.
1) the new chair is coated with what seems to be somewhat thicker ?epoxy paint, versus the older thinner coating on the older black chairs.
2) the new chair has deeper plastic glides on the end of the legs
neither of these features has been a problem on the older chairs, however. The bright metal fittings of the older folding mechanism have rusted in outdoor use, and the new chair seems to have the same kind of fittings.
Overall, a good deal at the max Sierra discounts offered occasionally.
I don't recommend these chairs for continual outdoor use, but they are comfortable and apparently reliable for intermittent indoor use.

I do not like most collapsing camp chairs. I sink into them and it is difficult to get up out of the chair. I had sat in a folding director style camp chair at a friends and like it, so I order several of these. They are really solid. One sits upright with lots of support. Easy to get in and out. They are a little difficult to fold up, but once you do it a few times it becomes easier. These are not lightweight chairs and are very sturdy, but that also makes them less portable and are not recommended for chairs that one need to transport any distance by foot. Overall they fit my needs perfectly.

I debated on 4 or 5 stars, but went with 4. The frame is steel. If you leave it outside, it will rust, unlike aluminum. However, the steel frame means it's very sturdy, and the seat is wide enough for those of us (well, me anyway) who probably need to loose a few pounds. I'm planning to buy a couple more.

Bought to replace old aluminum lawn chairs. These chairs are sturdy, comfortable and store nicely. Currently they are a little stiff to "refold" - but seem to be getting easier with use. I also did not anticipate the weight. At 11.5 lbs each. 2 of them are a load to carry very far. Still they are going to fit the bill nicely for use on patio, extra chairs for a crowd, and car camping. Looks like they will hold up to much wear and tear.
