Rated 1 out of 5 by OP23 Poor Quality Chair
Although very comfortable I can't recommend this chair because of the quality of the workmanship and design. After 6 months one of the bolts broke on the leg making the chair unusable. Thinking that I must have gotten a defective chair I exchanged it for another one. However, I had the same problem with the replacement after a couple of months. Fortunately since LL Bean has the best return policy of any store I have shopped at, I was able to return it for a refund.
After my experience with the Strongback chair I have come to the conclusion that there is something inherently defective with the chair's design and that LL Bean should stop selling the chair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Worththewhiskey Love this chair!
This chair not only looks comfy, it IS comfy! I first saw it at my son's football practice. A dad was sitting comfortablly using a laptop without a problem. I liked how it folded like a regular lawn chair, so when you sit in it, your knees are not in your face, and it keeps your back straight. When I found out it was an LL Bean chair I knew I would buy it, because they stand by there products and I could always get a refund or replaced.. I am plus size and fit comfortablly in this chair and it supports me. Comes with a bag and easy to carry. Between football practice and Boy Scouts I use this chair often, and know it will last. It was a great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Talelayo Very very comfortable
A friend let us sit in her Strongback Elite camp chair at a teardrop trailer gathering. My wife and I were truly impressed, they are very very comfortable. So when LLBean sent us a 20% discount coupon we jumped at the chance to retire our director chairs. We love our director chairs, we've had a number of them over the past 30 years and until the Strongback came along couldn't find anything more comfortable.
The Strongback has an extra tube that provides a decent amount of lumbar to support your lower back in a healthy sitting position.
They fold up like any run of the mill sack chair so they are easy to transport.

Rated 3 out of 5 by robertinbakersfield Great for tall folks
Solid (heavy) chair wiht excellent back support. At 5'3" my feet dangled inches above the ground. As that was quite uncomfortable, the chair has been returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Willowisp great back support
Chair is very roomy, but we compared the measurements of the Zen chair with this one and the Zen would have been too small, since we are tall. Wish they made an in-between size (perhaps not so wide) so it would be a tad lighter. We bought it for its great lumbar support and it's easy to get in and out of. Very sturdy: seems well made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Concertlover Uncomfortable and heavy
Had to return this chair . Very well made but cut short in the seat. Cut legs at an uncomfortable point . I have rather short legs and usually don't have that problem. Bought it to take to outdoor Summer Concerts ,but found because it is so well made ,it was too heavy to carry. Back support did what was advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Womanonthewater Extremely roomy and comfortable!
This is the first camp chair I have ever been comfortable sitting in. Usually the seats put pressure behind my lower thighs, cutting off good circulation to my feet. This seat fits perfectly. I am female, 5'7", 125 pounds. My husband is 5'10", 190 pounds, and now he wants one!
