That's correct, they are only wider.

We've had the XL ones from Cabela's for about a year now. Love them so much! Definitely hold 250lb+. Handles are getting worn/weathered but that seems cosmetic only. We use ours alot while at home too. Many a nap has been made in these wonderful chairs. Recently the strap for the pillow broke on one but hasn't bothered us much.

We also have the chairs from Cabelas (not XL) but I think the only difference is the width. Very comfy.

We tried two from Kohl's when we had one of their 30% off coupons. Great deal. The chair was just OK but beware the armrests. The hard plastic was really uncomfortable after just 5 minutes. We returned them. I would never have imagined that to be an issue, but it was for us.

We got a couple at Bass Pro this spring and love them. I think they were "on sale" for about $50. They do take up extra room and are a bit heavier than I thought they'd be but IMO, worth it. These aren't padded but have a pillow for one's head.

I found the Zero Gravities to be heavy and bulky in transit, and take up way to much room when trying to fit everyone under the awning during rain shower or getting out of the sun.
These are better for us and just as comfortable to me, as they recline nicely.
Also comes in a wide size. Prime Products Plus Folding Chairs

After using a friend's Big Wide Recliner from Camping World last fall I decided to buy one. When we went to the local Camping World earlier in the spring they had a couple that were being closed out because the cloth pattern wasn't very popular, so I grabbed one for $70. They are on sale now on their web site for $99 for President's Club members.

I have only had it for a couple of months, but my friends have had theirs for a couple of years without any issues.

No affiliation, relation, ties, etc, etc, etc, with this company, but you might want to check ALPS Mountaineering. My wife was very specific about what COLOR chairs she wanted, she wanted it to match the awning mat. No idea how she found these guys. They seem to have a large selection of style and colors available. We ordered four of the Kong chairs, two lakeside, a lounger and a table. The four Kong chairs and the lounger arrived in two days. They seem very sturdy and well built. Again, no affiliation, relation, ties, etc, you might want to check out what they have to offer.
