MacCabee Folding Director’s Chair -An Outdoor Chair for Camping, Picnicking, and Sitting Around

If camping and outdoor living is your style, do not skimp on your seating arrangements-buy a MacCabee Foldable Director’s Chair. Many a vertebrae have struggled and strained during outdoor activities with inadequate seating. I’ve tried many seats, and the MacCabee is a winner.

The MacCabee Foldable Director’s Chair is a great buy for the average consumer. I bought mine from my local wholesale warehouse. It is a bit pricier than the average foldable chair, (mine cost about $22,) but it is worth it for the sturdiness and relief it offers.

OTHER OUTDOOR CHAIRS:
First of all, let me talk about other foldable chairs that I’ve tried over the years.
WOVEN VINYL SEAT:
I dislike the woven vinyl-seated ones which fold up to a flat square after use. In all my experiences with this style of chair they eventually stretch out of shape after a few uses and a few days in the sun. There are some average-height chairs as well as the close-to-the-ground style. On many occasions, the cheapo aluminum frame bends under the weight of a human being, seeming quite dangerous for any seated body. I’ve seen the adult version of these run between $8.99 and $16.99. It may appear affordable at first, but when it breaks, you definitely know you’ve been taken. These vinyl chairs don’t measure up to the MacCabee.

FOLDABLE STICK STYLE:
Nowadays, the stores are full of the canvas seated ones with either steel or aluminum frames which fold up to a stick that fits into a nylon-tube bag. Some even have an armrest feature with cup holder. At first, I thought these were great, but after a few hours of sitting, the caved-in seat area causes me to hunch and does not do justice for my body. After sitting to relax on these chairs, I find that it does my body more harm than good. Getting up in a bent position and painfully straightening out is enough for me to dislike the weakened chairs. What is the problem? The seat attaches to the frame on the four corners of the legs, giving little support or pull to the center of the seat. The center is the part which bears the brunt of the weight and affects a person’s posture. Thus, not enough seat support and a very stiff back. I’ve seen these run between $7.99 and $22. Not a great bargain compared to the MacCabee.

DIRECTOR’S STYLE:
This is a much improved version of the outdoor chair-but buyer beware-not every director’s style chair is the same. Most outdoor director’s chairs are made of canvas and supported by an X-frame. The attractive feature is the seating is fully attached to the whole tube of the frame (unlike the 4-cornered attached canvas). This gives great support, and, so long as the frame holds sturdy, these is adequate. It showed with my posture as well as my lack of stiffness upon standing. However, I have noticed that, after a few uses, the seams seem to be straining and stretching apart.

MACCABEE DIRECTOR’S STYLE CHAIR – THE REAL DEAL:
Here is my favorite – the MacCabee Director’s Style Chair. Like the typical outdoor director’s chairs on the market, the canvas bottom and the canvas back is attached to the tubing on the frame. However, the MacCabee is bigger than the other versions of director’s chairs that I’ve used, and its frame is very sturdy. It claims to hold a whopping 225 pounds which gave peace to my heart when a few larger individuals decided to borrow my seat. The back and the seat even has a comfy little padding which keeps the material sturdy. The MacCabee folds up very easily (although not as small as the tube-folding), but it fit well in the trunk of my car. The big problem I had at camp?-Getting my chair back from everyone else who decided that they wanted to sit on it instead of their inferior brands. It’s that comfortable, and I made sure I labeled it well (my name written in a bright red color) to be sure it didn’t get mixed up with any other “mock” MacCabees. After continued use, the stitching is not stretched or strained, my back is well supported, and I’m a “happy camper”.
