Light and compact are the best descriptors. It packs up small, weighs in significantly lighter than other chairs in this class, and is built sturdily enough to handle people well over 200 lbs. I look especially critically at the socket material where the poles fit into the chair and where the brunt of weight is concentrated. At 11" off ground level, even I can stand straight up out of this chair, and I barely notice it in the load.
