    Heavy Duty Tailgate Chairs

    Looking for the best tailgate chair for the heavier or taller build?

    Most regular folding sporting chairs have a maximum weight capacity of up to around 325 lbs. So if you're on the tall or heavy side (or both), then a regular folding chair just won't cut it. No one wants an arm rest that breaks, when you push down on it to get up, or a frame that digs into your legs and starts causing you discomfort after 5 minutes.

    This is where a heavy duty tailgate chair can come in really helpful and there are some great ones out there - some with a weight capacity up to 800 lbs. 

    We researched and reviewed four of the best tailgate chairs for the taller and oversized build we could find. 

    Our top pick is the Coleman Oversized Quad Chair with Cooler or you can click on the link below to read the full review.
