Great quality, needs to fit the user in a very specific way
Great quality, some good features, i.e., reclining, leg-rests lifting, will last a long time. Adjustable tension of back and seat.
Hard to maneuver on rugs, leg rests are not flexible, leg rests have uncomfortable design (need cushioning), leg rests are hard to put on and off. Arm rests are set too high to begin with - the lowest is still too high (not comfortable in reclined position). Original pads are too skimpy.

Super comfortable, lightweight, high quality reclining...
I have the pads that it comes standard with, and the chair is super comfortable -- almost like a Laz-E-Boy recliner! The chair is also lightweight and of very high quality.
The wheel base is longer than other reclining wheelchairs I've used, for stability while reclining, no doubt. But that, in combination with the 22" wheels (which are smaller than on other manual wheelchairs), makes the chair somewhat bulky and difficult for the user to maneuver. Most of the time I have someone pushing me, so this is not a major problem. Also, it barely fits on my Harmar Tilt'n Tote car rack -- a problem I didn't anticipate.
