In our search for the best heavy duty beach chairs we had a look at some of the following criteria:
High weight capacity – these heavy duty beach chairs had to hold a minimum of 300 pounds and for the big and heavy person we found extra wide seats with a capacity of 500 pounds.
Extra wide seats – got to have comfort.
Strong, wide arm rests – this is a key feature that so many people over look, but the arm rests of your beach chair are use all the time. You need sturdy arms to help you get in and out of the chair – especially if you are sitting in a low to the ground beach chair.
Strong, durable fabric and stitching – that will withstand the weight of the individual as well as the beating it will take from the sun, sand, salt and wind.
If you are wondering…
It is an excellent beach chair and extremely well made. Strong rust resistant aluminum frame with reinforced steel inside, oversized seat and arm rests, quick dry – strong fabric. (see color choices, check current price and read reviews here).

Best High Off the Ground Beach Chairs
High off the ground beach chairs are far more comfortable to get in and out of than the beach chairs that are lower to the ground.
In addition to the seat height, you should also look at the quality and width of the chair arms (which many people over look). Since the chair arms are what you use to push yourself out of the chair – they need to be strong, wide and weather resistant (you may want a cup holder too).
