I have used these chairs for years. I am a big guy, 310 pounds, and it handles me solidly and comfortably. They also have superior customer service. I have one of their chairs that is several years old and the seat fabric started to fail in one spot although the chair is still usable. I contacted the company to see if I could purchase a new seat fabric and after providing a photo of the old chair they actually sent me a new chair. I was blown away. I just purchase 2 more of these chairs. I'm not aware of a better outdoor folding chair you can get. They aren't cheap but they last.
