Folding Lawn Chairs for Big Tall and Fat People

By Edited Oct 2, 2016 3 4

Camp chairs and lawn style chairs are very convenient. You can easily throw them in the trunk of your car and have a comfortable seat wherever you may end up at. Many people will buy their portable folding lawn chairs at stores such as Wal-Mart.

Buying your folding lawn chairs from a store such as Wal-Mart is a pretty good idea, unless you weight a lot. For us big, tall, and fat people there is not much of a selection at our local stores. As a big person we need chairs that are wide, durable, and able to withstand tremendous weights.

You may weigh 300 pounds, but you need a chair that is rated for more weight than that. When you initially “plop” down into your chair you exert much more than your body weight on the chair. Finding chairs that are truly designed for heavy people can be hard, if not impossible to find unless you shop online.

Here are some chairs that have been designed for big and tall people that are rated excellent.

King Pin Chair

This Big Boy Camp Chair is the big daddy of all camp chairs. It is a foldable chair, yet it may not fit into the trunk of your car. That’s me in the picture. I am 6’3” and 326 pounds, yet this chair dwarfs me. If you have room to take this bad boy chair camping then you will be sitting in the lap of luxury.

have a reputation of being lazy. You can easily live up to that reputation with this chair as it holds a 6 pack of soda or beer in the arms. Not one or two cup holders but 6! With 6 cold drinks in the arms you can sit around the camp fire for hours without ever having to get up to replace your empty drink: That is if your bladder can make it that long.

This chair is sold at D&B Supply. If there is not a D&B Farm Supply store in your area then take a look at Kotulas.com who also sells this chair. This chair is marketed under different names by many online retailers.  The best price for the Kingpin Chair online is at Amazon.

If the King Pin Chair is too much chair for you then consider a cheaper alternative such as the 350 pound Extra Wide Camp Chair.

The 350 Pound Extra Wide Chair

This 350 pound chair is good for larger people who like to have room to wiggle when they sit down. You will not have an arm digging into your ribs as you roast marshmallows over the fire. It is not near as big or fancy as the King Pin Chair, but it is very affordable. You can expect this chair to last for 1-3 seasons of heavy use. This chair can be found online at numerous retailers.

King Kong Camo

The King Kong Camo is sold at LargeLivin.com. This chair is much more portable then the King Pin Chair. This chair is a true design for big and tall people. You know when they have to tear down house wall so they can remove the fat guy from his bed? Well in that guys garage you will find the King Kong Camo.

The King Kong Camo chair is sturdy and will not collapse under the weight of a heavy person. If you are fat, and your spouse is fat, then she can sit on your lap while you are in this chair. This chair is highly rated. As much as I like the King Pin Chair, the King Kong Camo is my choice of chair simply because it is more portable and able to fit into the trunk of a car.

There are numerous chairs designed for big and tall people. Some of these chairs are not truly made for big and tall people, but they may or may not work. If you can find a place locally to buy a chair then you can try it out and see if it comfortable for you. This may not be an option for most large people, but the Internet is a vast source of websites that sells chairs for big and tall people.

Many people will buy cheap and inexpensive chairs that may or may not last for an entire summer. Once they splurge and buy a chair designed for their big and tall status, they rarely go back to cheap lawn chairs. The safety of these chairs means that you do not have to worry about it collapsing in you and then having a sharp rock or stick poke you in your bum bum.

Having a large chair that is sturdy will save you money because you will not have to replace the chair near as often.  Large chair is also much more comfortable because the arms are not sticking into your ribs.

A huge chair means you can kick back, relax, and in the case of the king pin chair you can drink a 6 pack.

LOL - King Kong Camo would be my choice of chair. I do hate those flimsy, always breaking lawn chairs. Makes my bum bum hurt too. Oh, definitely a canaopy would be appreciated. Thank you!

This is the best product review I've ever read or seen. For anything! Chairs, tables, computers, cars, houses, space shuttles, whatever: This is the best.

It's clear that Ernie did some homework with this one, so if you're reading this because you're looking to buy, take what he says very seriously. He clearly spent a lot of time researching.
