These seats are comfortable and wide enough for my large frame (6 ft. 295 lbs) If you mount them on rails or with a mount that attaches on the sides, they would be great.
But if you mount them using the 4-hole mount for pivit-posts the plastic base gets a lot of torquing when leaning back and will break at the points that the back brackets are mounted.
I bought two of these seats and on our first fishing trip the cheap plastic base broke badly on the one used by my 225 lb father-in-law. Mine showed signs of cracking and I cannot use either one again until I rebuild the base and reinforce them with plywood. The bases need a serious re-design.
I can't imagine why they would use such a cheap corrugated plastic base on seats marketed as "Big Man" seats.
Since I bought them n April and we didn't get to go fishing until August, they were already past the 90-day return limit. So I am out about $90, plus the plywood and screws that I will require to repair them.
I bought 3 of these seats for my bass/ski boat. My pregnant wife goes fishing with me. She lays across them like a couch. They are very comfortable and the high back is a plus. They appear to be nice and sturdy. I've only had them for a couple of weeks, so I will see how they hold up in the long run.
these are good seats but built a little cheap fits the bigger man well but if you lean back in the seats they bow also they come with a strap to close the seat so when you pull the boat the seats stay flat they broke on both seats we bought the first time you tryed to unsnap them . other wise there just ok.
This seat exceeded my expectations. The weight limit on it is 300 lbs, it's durable and very comfortable. I also like the bigger size. I use this seat for driving the boat as well as fishing on the boat. We mounted it with a swivel adapter and it works great!
First, this was our first experience with the ship-to-store in order to get free shipping. We were very happy with how smooth that was.
Now for the review on the seat. We are very pleased with the quality. The hinges between the back and the seat are well built and the upholstery is nicely done. Even though it looked substantially sturdy underneath, we took the advice of one of the other reviewers and cut out a piece of plywood to fit between the seat and our swivel mounting bracket to give it extra support to the edges.
Very happy with the comfort. My husband is actually a big man, 300+ pounds, and it fits him perfectly and comfortably. We have it mounted in the middle of our 14' aluminum fishing boat (normal width ... not a jon boat). He is thrilled.
I think the reviewers that gave it a poor rating because they returned it for being too big are ridiculous. The dimensions are clearly stated and it is called a "Big Man's Seat" for a reason. We were delighted to find this seat.
I bought this seat July '09 for my husband to use on the front platform. At 265lbs he is built like a grizzly bear and this seat has been perfect. It has been stored outside, unprotected, year round and still in perfect condition - hinges, straps and all. The seat portion has about a 5" cushion that hasn't flattened out a bit, which amazes me. I wish I could find den or dining furniture made as well, as comfortable and as economical!
Now that the price has "rolled back" I'm buying one for myself to use on the back platform. I'd buy 2 more for our console area but our boat is too small.
I done my research before desiding to buy this seat. I printed out the product details. From one manufactors wedsite and compared it to Walmarts Big man seat. The other store ( B*ss prosh*p) wanted $30.00 more for a less quality seat. Guys you know as well as i do that in this ecomony we have to watch every dime. If your wifes anything like the one i have you wouldnt be buying this seat. You would be seating on a bucket. Thanks to walmarts low price. I bought 3 of them. Even if you had to pay shipping you'd still come out on top. Shipping to the store is FREE. Thanks Walmart
The ordering and availability at the pick up store were very timely. The item is as advertised. I installed it in a few minutes. The quality seems fine, but I have limited use. I am really not THAT big, weighing around 260 lbs., but the chair is truly for a large person. I find the chair a bit too large, and it blocks a lot of view while underway, though it does fold down. Actually my rear seat was the one needing replacement. It was old and broken. I actually took the front seat that was good, moved it to the back, and installed the new LARGE seat in front. My front seat was comfortable and in good shape and felt good to sit in while fishing. I just thought a larger, more heavy duty chair would be better for the front, so I switched. I may switch back, however, I do realize that the more I use it, the more comfortable it is. Bottom line, unless you weigh a lot and have a 'broad' butt, no need to purchase this very large seat. Otherwise, it is very nice.
The seat came damaged. Wise is a great brand, but something was missing here! The seat broke on the first hour out on the boat! The foam on the seat is very uncomfortable and the back is not as supportive as one would think. I would not recommend this product.
Walmart's customer service was great on the return.
The seat is larger than I thought it would be, but that's OK because I'm using it on a deck boat and it will be nice to have a larger more comfortable seat. It seems sturdy enough that I'm not going to reinforce it with plywood like some other reviews have suggested. Look at the dimensions and compare to regular seat to see if it to large for your needs before ordering. IT IS LARGE !!! But for the price of $32 you can't beat it.
Seats are nice and wide as described but was disappointed when we first used the seats. When we came to unsnap one of the seats to fold upwards the snap came off. I hope this is not an omen of how this product will hold up. We were considering buying 2 more seats for our party barge but may wait a while to see if product quality will hold out.
At almost 2 feet wide, this seat offers plenty of room to be comfortable in. If your looking for a seat that is suited for adults, this is the one. Be sure of the mouting location and allow for the extra width. The vinyl is of good quality, and the padding is soft enough to be comfy and firm enough to last. I'm using this one as my main bass seat, as I was tired of the cheapo tiny seats that are out there. Wise products are always good, and this is a great deal from Walmart!
After sitting on many high back and low back seats I settled on the wise Big Man High-Back seat. Although I am only 5'7" and 165 pounds none of the other seats were as comfortable as this one. After purchasing one I bought two more.
These seats are as hard as a rock. Ordered 2. One chair looked as if the hinge had been
fixed and held together with a nut and bolt. Had to re-order 1 chair and wait for shipment all over
again. I guess you get what you pay for. If you want a comfortable seat for the water, don't buy these. You'll end up with back trouble from slamming onto the water.
For the price, you can't beat it. Nice wide seat with excellent lumbar support. I use one seat for a second rider on my ATV and the second seat for comfortable back support on the dining room bench in our pickup camper. But, I suppose it would make an excellent boat seat, too.
This site to store purchase was quick and the pickup transaction at the Walmart store friendly and efficient. I will continue shopping this way with Walmart. Besides, I love Walmart's RV friendly policy towards our overnite stays while traveling in our pickup camper. In return, I shop a lot while parked overnite at Walmart and help round up shopping carts in the parking lot in the mornings.
This seat is very poorly supported. The back is held up by two cheap rivets. At 180lbs, mine broke the 2nd time I used the seat, out on the lake. My friend, who sat in my other chair at 190lbs, had one of the two rivets break the same day. That seat was ready to completely break, probably on the 3rd use. Looks good but BEWARE.
After reading negative reviews I had my doubts on making the purchase but with Walmarts return policy being so good, I decided to take a chance. The seat is great, well made and comfortable. The only problem I see is that the strap that holds the seat down in the folding position is too long. I will put in a new snap and it should fix that problem.
this seat was great had comfort and stilye just perfect for my boat !!1
These seats replaced the 2 plastic platform seats I had on my bass boat. WOW! What a world of difference. Not only are the seats comfortable when on the lake for hours fishing but they also have a very good look to them. I have received several compliments on how nice they were even the mechanic who works on my boat said how nice they were and was surprised at the low cost they were. You can't go wrong for the money.
Bought it for me love it and it's big enough to hold my husband comfortably and he's a big guy 6'4" 280lbs
