Strongback chairs?

Any of you tried these chairs? My wife and I both have lower back problems and we're looking for a camp chair that will be better for us. Thanks!

Never tried them, but for me it was a process to find a chair that was a good fit. We bought about 3 different chairs before finding "the one"....but whats good for one person might no work for another.....

I bought one a month ago. You think it's a gimmick, but it's not. I'm really surprised how comfortable and supportive it is!

I bought one and it is a perfect chair for my lower back problems. Wish it were smaller, though. Overall, a great chair.

We have two of them, an Elite and a Zen. I really like my Elite. My wife doesn't think much of her Zen. She has been looking for a comfortable chair for years and is still searching.

I just sent them an e-mail asking about weight limitations. Being a Big Guy, it's hard to find camp chairs that will hold me without risking breaking, and being reasonably comfortable. The price is high, but if it'll hold me, I'll try one.

Pricy but worth it.

I remember seeing a new back-support chair at Camping World last time we were there. I wonder how those compare to these, or if in fact they are the same?

Just checked the reviews on Amazon....many people loved the chairs but were disappointed with the construction and durability. Not sure if that has been improved...but think I will hold off.

I found a very similar chair at CW. I'm gonna compare these a little more before deciding! Looks like the Strongback is a better-built chair, especially the arms. I'm not sure it's worth the difference though!

It looks like the "Full Back Chair" is a less expensive version of a Strongback.

I cannot recommend Strongbacks. We had two and they fell apart, literally. The pins that hold the chair together broke. Cheap construction.

I really appreciate this input! I think I'll try the ones from CW!
