ALPS Mountaineering knows everyone is tired of buying cheap, quad chairs that last a couple of times and then break. Not only is it embarrassing to have your chair break in front of family and friends, but why buy a chair that's not going to last No more disposable chairs! The Big C.A.T. has a sturdy powder coated steel frame with 600D polyester fabric... quality you can count on and that will last a lifetime they guarantee it. And the Big C.A.T. holds up to 500 lbs... it's time to move on to a chair that you can trust. Even if you're a person who doesn't need the extra weight capacity, the comfort and strength that you'll gain from this chair is incomparable to any other chair on the market that folds up, fits in a carry bag, and can be brought to all your events.
