...he's over 17 stone and very long, so he does tend to crush the wimpy unbrella-fold aluminium sort. I've suggested he takes a saw and whittles himself a seat from a log. Didn't go down too well.

You might find that chairs sold for fishing might be stronger. They sell them in Argos.

Cor, that was quick -- I've just come back to find three answers! Thanks, I might see if DH can face the thought that he's a bigger-than-average Bubba...

have you sat in one metmoo? They are heavenly and the special seat helps you up when you press on the armrests.

The outwell camper deluxe chairs are very sturdy. The bags are rather big though...but if you only want one ..would be ok
Best to go and try them out.

strange questions but: can you eat on your knees in a moon chair?

we have a picnic table affair for the kids but tend to just use the camping chairs for ourselves. the moon chairs look a bit "scooped" iykwim which might make eating in them tricky.

I echo how comfy moon chairs are! Divine!
