Bought one of this brand / style (tubes running from front to back rather then four discreet legs that invariably sink into the ground) two years ago, and found that their weight rating of 300# is extremely accurate. At the time my weight was about 320-325. After using it at couple of weekend get-togethers, someone commented on my “curved rail directors chair”. Turns out it had been deforming, and also the rivet/bolts at all the pivot points were either sheeting off or the through holes had stretched to ovals, and the plastic “feet” that had been riveted on were all missing - apparently the rivets sheeted an no one noticed when the “feet” came off. So no safety margin there. I replaced it with one I bought at Wally World (for the same price as this one) that was listed as an XXL. They didn’t bother with plastic feet to break off, it weighs nearly 18 pounds instead of 12 (bad if your packing it to a campsite, but OK if used for “backyard” seating or similar) is apparently a heavier gauge steel tubing, and it had a 550# rating and I believe it! (Oh, and as an XXL it is nearly 3" wider so my aging backside has room to shift side to side). But a full two years of use it still looks like new, except a little sun bleaching on the side that sees sun most of the day.
Actually I’m not tryi f to say that THIS chair isn’t good quality - I’m sure that to the average size user (150 - 200#) it is just great. But I am saying that if I can get a bigger (wider) tougher ( stronger weight rating) chair AT THIS SAME PRICE somewhere else, that I would expect WOOT to have this at $40-$45 - not $60.
