I'm returning this chair immediately. It comes in a square, flat, carrying case and is quite heavy/sturdy, but once opened it has too many dangerous features. The upper back portion folds over, and the metal bars it attaches to are perfect for severely pinching fingers, would be pretty dangerous especially with children around. The seat would hold a very heavy person, but may not be wide enough for anyone who is over an 18/20 in womens or xl in mens. The worst thing, though, is that it is unstable. I bought this chair for my dad thinking he would be able to rise easier from it (firm arm base, taut seat structure. But when my average size daughter sat down in it, it immediately flipped backward, spilling her onto the ground. We had several other folks test it (with catchers in place to keep them from going all the way over) and several times it tipped back. Once it tipped from someone just standing up. An older, unsteady, person or a teenager who wasn't being careful could easily get hurt. This chair is far less stable than just the regular beach/outdoor chairs that come in the bags with straps.
