    Tooley what is that hammock type thing under your chair? The backpack is pretty inefficient for a quad.

    All of my weight on the anti-tippers? Yup.. All 300lbs of my fat backside... However I do not usually have the anti-tippers (or handles or armrests) on the chair. Only for long 'outings'. Most of the time it's setup more of a 'naked' look. Frame, wheels, cushion and bag. That's it (like the first few pictures).

    How-ever, I have tested everything and this chair build with the HD option is rated for 400 lbs. The anti-tippers have held me in the reclined position during a short movie at the museum (I was showing off) with no fear of tipping over. Actually, I'd keep the tippers on if they allowed for just a bit more elevation before contact with the floor. Someday I'll modify them but with my 25" wheels it's all they are going to do. I wheelie around constantly to get through doors, spin around quicker, etc. So far (knock-on-wood) I haven't flipped over backwards... But it's only a matter of time I'm sure, without the anti-tippers on...

    The arms come off and put on just as easy. The handles have one bolt to take them off or put them on. But I only use them when we're going somewhere with a very long way to walk so I have the option of being pushed. But I often have people push me up a hill or something simply by pushing on my shoulders too (It's kinda-nice, a shoulder message plus help up the hill at the same time).

    That might be a lot more information then you asked for but simply put; yes. The anti-tippers hold me, bouncing even, and all 300lbs of me with no problem. Never once giving me any doubt they would hold.

    it's called a catch-all, and it really does. One day I was whipping down a larger hill and had my cell between my legs (bad habit), when I got to the bottom of the hill it wasn't there anymore. Thinking I'd have to climb the hill to find it, I decided to look in the catch-all and there it was! With my new cushion I just put my phone in that pocket now...

    I use Ti-Lite's because it is netted and lets debris fall through it.. there are many other brands. I've found this one incredible strong, has carried a 20lb kettle weight no problem.

    I hate backpacks because they're hard to get into, someone could thief it easy, and most importantly throws off my center-of-gravity (I prefer to use a tippy chair)
