The chair arrived nicely packed and my husband really liked it. I wanted to send it back and by the bigger and thicker one at another place. But he was very pleased and for the price it could not be beat. He won't be using it as often as he did in the past at outdoor concert events and fairs. He used to use a woven web style folding chair, and this chair has so many options that beat that by a long shot. He is very please and I am happy he will enjoy his new chair. My husband is slim and about 5 foot 10 inches. If that helps.
