    Not sure I would agree there John..I am 6'4 and although its quite narrow I dont find it too short. However its important to put it in perspective that its a light weight chair designed to be lugged about so there has to be some compromise on comfort v weight & size.
    I do agree however that the rake is too far inclined back however and I also doctered mine to force it to sit more upright.

    The other thing is its also amazingly robust for its weight. I totally abuse mine and its still working perfectly.

    Talking of robustness ....

    ...Benny I would say the potential weak spot on your bison chair are those hinges at the bottom of the back rest were it joins the frame. I suspect that will not tolerate much "lateral" stress if I can put it like that. I can see those plates on the hinge bending over to the side quite easily. Obviously I hope I am wrong but I thought I would mention.

    Let us know how it holds up !

    I must admit I had a similar doubt - used it two or three times so far without issue , I did have a cheap tubular steel fold up one me once - nearly lost a thumb
    the legs when fully extended seem a similar worry

    If the hinges go it will be out with the drill and some wing nuts with possibly a wedge araldited to keep the back up as My Welding skills are zero and I am not convinced welding would be possible anyway

    Will let you now though , but so far for the price I am really pleased with it
