Rated 5 out of 5 by JenniferinTTown Does what is says it does! Excellent!
This is a great wheel chair/travel chair.
My mom is approx 230-240 lbs. She had one of the hospital style black wheelchairs that has the big back wheels so she could help roll herself around, but it was SO heavy.
I couldn't pick it up to put it in my car & we couldn't go anywhere or do anything.
We needed a better solution & this is brilliant.
I'm only 5'1" and fairly petite & while I'm fit, picking up her other wheelchair was awful. I have a bad back we just needed another solution!
This is easy to use and I can even use my left (weaker) hand to pick it up & carry it. TOTALLY worth every penny.
To me the only con is they really do need to have cup holders - seriously - we like to go shopping and where on earth are you going to put your drink without spilling it. You really need 2, one for the person in the chair & one for the person pushing it. The one they say that is a bottle holder won't fit a normal bottle - they need to make it a few inches bigger & wider. The pocket is awesome as well, but would be much better if it was bigger too. I mean how easy would it be for them to make it more expandable. So user & person in chair could put their purse in it = free up hands for everything else! Then it would be the perfect chair! Was just so impressed with how easy it was to use, fold up & that I could actually pick it up. Her other one was awful.
The free chair cover is kind of a waste - I won't ever use it - Don't see why anyone would go to the trouble of using it/putting it in there and then have to take it out. But, that's just my thoughts on that & it was free, so that's fine. Instead of the free cover, make the pockets on the back of the chair bigger/expandable & add some cup holders!!!! :-) (or add a pocket that can be attached under the chair for storage/purses/etc).
This is a fantastic chair - GET IT - you can't even compare it with the other kind of wheelchair because of how light it is & how easy it is to fold up & pick up, that is how great this chair is!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Villagertravles A gift for a wonderful friend!
The weight of the chair was very important because it had to be lifted in and out of a car. The lady doing this was folding and lifting a 55 pound chair and she is not young. This is a beautiful red light weight chair & I got the red padded piece to go with it.
Our friend Nancy said they both love it for ease of use and of course because it is RED and different.

The chair is sturdy and lightweight. It is easy to carry, It is very maneuverable. It is very compact when the back is folded down and easy to transport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by helper3 Fun colors!
My mother loves the color and the fact that it's called a "travel" chair. I also got her the red lumbar support pillow which she uses with it. She sits in her new chair even when she doesn't have to!

Rated 4 out of 5 by books4bert More heavy duty than eexpected
It is heavier than I expected, but pleasantly surprised by the weight of the fabric. I think when I finally use it I'm going to like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bobiwaldo Light weight, good transport chair
This chair too WAY TOO long to arrive.. The chair is right for what we needed, but the delivery time was frustrating.
I ordered this for my mother..
