There are times when it is necessary to sit as high as possible to ensure you’re getting the entire view of the local area. Putting yourself in a tall or, indeed, wide hunting chair sets you up nicely for taking a solid shot at any type of game.

ALPS OutdoorZ King Kong Camping Chair
- Seat Dimensions: 38” W x 20” D
- Seat Height: 18”
- Weight: 13 lbs
- Capacity: 800 lbs
The King Kong is primarily a camping chair but it is a substantial size and would serve the purpose as a solid hunting chair.
Compared to many other hunting style chairs, the King Kong is significantly bigger and boasts a carrying capacity of 800 lbs, which is huge.
This is a classic folding camp chair that quickly collapses into a compact bundle making it easy to carry. However, due to its size and the steel frame that supports it, the weight could be an issue, particularly for hunters who are carrying a lot of gear to their site.
On the plus side, there are cup holders built into each arm support as well as storage pouches on the sides and the back, making this a very handy addition to the blind.
The seat material is a 600D polyester material using the Realtree Edge design.
SmithWorks ComfortQuest Sport Chair
- Seat Dimensions: 24” W x 18” D
- Seat Height: 18-23”
- Weight: 26 lbs
- Capacity: 450 lbs
The ComfortQuest Sport chair is a swivel chair complete with padded arm rests and the target market is the bigger hunter who is looking for the most comfortable chair possible.
The chair is built from heavy duty reinforced aluminum and has a large sized seat measuring 24” x 18”. The seat itself is padded with a depth of 2” and is covered with a 600D water resistant polyester fabric.
The seat height adjusts from 18” to 30” which should cater to all body sizes and shapes.
The rotate feature operates silently on ball-bearings and can rotate through 360 degrees.
With a maximum weight capacity of 450 lbs this sports chair is capable of holding anyone who cares to take it into the field.

Benchmaster Sniper 360 Shooting Chair
- Seat Dimensions: 16” W x 11” D
- Seat Height: 17-20”
- Weight: 39 lbs
- Capacity: 300 lbs
This is another seat designed to give the shooter a combination of quick and silent movability as well as comfort during the slow times.
The seat size provides plenty of room measuring 16 x 11 inches and it comes with arm rests and a foam back to ensure you are sitting comfortably. But the comfort doesn’t stop there because the back of this chair can also recline by up to 50 degrees.
They have given some thought to the bow hunters with the removable arm rests to allow for a full range of necessary movement.
A significant feature of the chair – and it isn’t noticeable to look at it – but the legs are multi-position capable so they can be altered so that the seat is level on uneven terrain.
At 39 lbs, this is not a hunting chair that you’re going to be carrying long distances. As long as your blind is reasonably close to wear you might park your car, it should be possible to bring it in and (I would suggest) leave it there.
The rotation mechanism allows the seat to revolve through a full 360 degrees and it does so smoothly and in complete silence.

The hunting chairs presented above cater to the larger sized hunters to accommodate either taller bodies that require an extra tall seat or the larger type who would appreciate more width space.
But no matter whether it’s a swivel chair or a simpler folding type, extra room can be found without having to compromise on comfort or safety.
As a tall guy you don’t want to find your knees up under your chin because the seat is too close to the ground and with seats that adjust to up to 30” in height there should be no problem in sitting comfortably for hours at a time.
