This is an especially wide model, which is 5.3 inches wider that a standard chair. This makes it a better chair for large people. The weight support is also better – the reinforced frame can hold up to 330 pounds.

The chair seat is made of textaline, covered in a neutral beige color. It goes well with any surrounding.

The recline function is also very good – the chair reclines slowly and smoothly. The neck and lumbar region of the back are well supported by the seat. The headrest makes the chair especially comfortable, and the backbone can rest, as well as most of the back muscles.

Even though this is a large, extra-wide model, it weighs only 22 pounds, and so is easy to carry around.

Pros:

  • Very wide – this chair is intended for large people, and works great for that purpose
  • Strong but light frame
  • The shape and ergonomic headrest are great for stopping back pain

Cons:

  • Not very easy to carry because of its size and weight – tends to drag on the ground

The model can support a user with a weight of up to 330 pounds. The model folds easily and when folded has a length of 49 inches and a width of 30 with a height of 10 inches.

The seat is made of sturdy rattan-like plastic. The armrests are made of natural eucalyptus wood. The chair is designed in mostly brown colors, and fits almost any style.

Pros:

  • Almost no assembly needed – unfolds easily and folds just as simply
  • Very sturdy – holds up to 330 pounds
  • The wheels make the chair easy to push around

Cons:

This chair is built from real eucalyptus and acacia wood. It comes fully assembled, with no extra operations needed. The manufacturer always ships two chairs, and both come in one box, assembled.

The chair folds easily, and it is pretty easy to carry when folded. In unfolded condition it has a width of 20 inches and a length of 70 with a height of 26 inches.

The ergonomic shape of the seat is good for your back, and the durable wood will last a long while.

The chair is pretty heavy and hard to carry alone, but that is rather a positive quality – that means the wood is heavy and will last a long while.

Pros:

  • Great, durable wood – will last a long while, even if exposed to water
  • The shape is good for your back
  • Arrives pre-assembled, so no additional work is needed

Cons:

  • It is not very comfortable to lay on without a cushion because of the hard material
