Ok--so I read all the reviews of this chair, and I did some thinking, and looking around at all the fold up chairs I could find. The main gripe seems to be that this is a heavy chair. But, it does hold 300 pounds... so, wouldn't you want it to be 'heavy'?

    Took these on a Wood Badge weekend, they were the most comfortable chair. Quite literally saved my a--. Hard to argue against the quality of anything made by ALPS that I have yet purchased. The only caution is they are heavy, to be expected with the amount of steel support and the durable canvas. Worth it for car camping.

    We just got back from a 3 day camping trip. We had two collapsible chairs--A Coleman and the ALPS Mountaineering. My husband complained that the Coleman chair cut off the circulation in his legs. I read the reviews on the ALPS before purchasing and comfort was frequently mentioned. I agree! This chair is so much more comfortable than the Coleman with good back support. The steel construction just seems so much sturdier than the Coleman chair, too. I'd like to get another and get rid of the Coleman chair, but my husband is too cheap. So guess which chair he's going to have to sit in!!!

    This chair is sturdy, comfortable and portable! A great addition for camping, beach or backyard R & R. I ordered one and then soon after purchased another for my husband. Satisfied customers!

    Leans back a little but that just makes you relax more. We took it to 5 days at Bonnaroo music fest and it survived like a champ. Its a lawn Chair!

    We have many 'bag' chairs, that I don't like due to a lack of back support. This chair is different, it is very sturdy and does not sag when sat in. It is generous in size, would be very comfortable for a larger person.

    • These chairs are extra wide, and while the back is higher than any other camp chair we own, it's not tall enough to rest your head on it. However, the chair offers lots of support. We love them.

    • No, I don't think so. This chair is very comfortable, but it does not include a headrest.

    • I am 6'2" and am not able to rest my head comfortably.

    • I'm that same height and I use the chair regularly. It's not tall enough to rest your head on the back. Great chair though.....

    • You can rest your head on the back if you slouch down a bit. My husband is 6' and the top of the back is about equal to his shoulders. It is higher than most camp chairs.

    • This is a very substantial camp chair.It is well designed and solidly built. One sits securely largely because the frame is heavy and rigid. There is definitely some give to the way the fabric is cut - my partner and I both feel we supported and there is 100 pounds difference.

      I am sure you could easily tuck in a pillow or dry bag or stuff sack to provide some additional support.

      Since you seem to be all about rafting, I will say that I am not sure that I would want to carry this on a raft.

    • I have arthritis in my lower spine and this chair seems to be supportive, but not as much as a pillow might provide. Its roomy size and solid construction are what appealed most to me and the fabric is not stretchy so that what you sit in now will be what you sit in next year as well. I bought a second because of its construction and comfort.
      Answered on 1/2/2015 2:24:41 PM by OCULUS from Rensselaer, NY
    • Well, I've had two back surgeries (got hit by a backhoe in the late eighties, and had two separate disc removal surgeries in the L4-L5 region of the spine), & so far I have been happy with the chair (bought a second one after purchasing & trying the first). The way the chair is designed is the seat has a bar on each side from the front to sticking maybe 1/2" out of the rear material to make the back more of a straight up-and-down tightness on the back material rather than the slope you would expect on a beach chair sort of arrangement. So, it tends to give more of a rigidity than you normally encounter. I have been through a few chairs (bought a Kermit some years ago and the jury is still out on it as I bought it for when I use my motorcycle, although I do take it camping), and so far this is the one I like to take. It's not a light chair, I think it's well constructed. I will attach a photo to give you some appreciation of the chair construction. It doesn't have any bars going across the back, but like I mentioned earlier - the seat construction kind of makes it superfluous to add anything else. You're not going to have perfect posture in the chair, but I think you will be comfortable as the material stays tight in a supportive manner from the seat up.
      Happy New Year!

    • You might still want a small pillow for total comfort but I find this chair to have the best back support of any I've used. This is my all-time favorite camp chair!
      Answered on 1/2/2015 3:50:42 PM by TnBsMom from Colorado
    • This is by far the best camp chair in terms of offering back support without the traditional sag found in most. Due to the solid construction, I would warn that this is not a chair that you will want to pack-in to a remote site as it is heavy. I think you will be very pleased with this chair.

  • “Does the frame cross over under the seat or does it sag in the center? Thanks for any info!”
    Asked by Sonora Golfer from Sonora, CA on 12/7/2014 8:01:14 PM
    • The frame doesn't touch the seat of the chair. The seat is more like a sling supported at
      The edges, not in the middle. It's the most comfortable of this type of chair we've used.
      Answered on 12/7/2014 8:09:09 PM by TnBsMom from Glenwood Springs, CO
    • Facing the setup chair, there is a vertical X facing you under the seat,
      connecting the arms and the legs, with a corresponding X in the rear
      of the chair. There are no supports that come in contact with any of
      the seat, or back. It's kind of a sloop design, that when the chair is set up
      you sitting in it provides the tautness of the material. I have a bad back (two
      surgeries lower back), and was satisfied with mine. It doesn't give you
      perfect posture as you naturally slump a little. But, I sit in mine to relax.
      Hope this is helpful for you. I ordered a second one, after the first for
      my late teen son (no complaints).

    • I forgot to add that it does have bars on the very
      sides of the seat, but these do not come in contact
      with my body - they just tighten up the material for
      When you sit down in it.

    • It does not cross over, but the fabric is taught/does not sag. These are extremely comfortable.
      Answered on 12/7/2014 9:55:10 PM by bobcatpilot from Ohio
    • Mine is packed away, but to my recollection, the frame members are along the edges of the seating fabric, not under it. Or put another way, at 215# I don't "bottom out" against any crossing frame.

      I liked the first one so much, I ordered a second.

    • The front is 20 inches from the ground and the back of the seat is 16 inches from the ground.
