He ain't heavy, he's my chair

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'?
I'm a pretty small woman, 5' and around 120. This chair maybe on the heavier side, but it certainly is no problem to carry. The strap is sturdy and stays put on your shoulder. I carried mail for 30 years, this is not heavy. Trust me.
The best thing about this chair is the size and the sturdiness. It folds out solid, and stays put. It is so comfortable. So, you may find a lighter chair, but I doubt you will find one that is this well made, and comfortable for the price. I love the way it feels. You can sit in it for long periods of time without any discomfort ,or that uneasy feeling you have when you think a chair may tip over. The cup holder is most likely unusable for an open drink. Most people have a water bottle or a closed top container, and this will work just fine. Perhaps you just want to put a few items in it --like bug protection or sun screen, or a cell phone. Seriously, at this price I challenge you to find a better chair. It is going with us everywhere this summer. The fabric is not that thin slippery type like on the discount chairs. It is substantial and hefty. I am very pleased!
