I love how you sit comfortably upright in this chair (and don't sink to you knees like you do in the simple portable chairs). The desk is basic, and only good for a plate of food, paperwork, or at the heaviest weight, a tablet. I do like how the table adjusts to nearly every position and angle possible; you can pull the whole thing up or down, swivel the desk to be in front of you or next to you, and it even locks at an angle for reading or viewing a tablet. Definitely meets all of our needs, and for a good price no less. One downside is storage; if you have a wide flat space, it's fine, but it is by no means compact. Weight is comparable to other folding chairs, maybe slightly heavier.
