My husband is 5'11" and almost your weight and he sits in it. I wouldn't call it the best chair for relaxing. We bought it for our toddler. It won't break the fabric is very durable. Just loses its shape frequently.

Not sure the specs call for a limit but I'm 135 lbs at 5'4" and anyone larger might have a hard time staying in it since it's pretty low to the floor to start with. I measured the seat section and its 16 in x 16 in.

Near as I can tell, it doesn't flatten out. It is not a big round ball like it used to be. It is shaped like a chair, holds its shape and very comfortable. It is fairly small though. These chairs are meant for kids of small adults (which is what I am). I love it.

I just looked at mine and the underside zipper cannot be opened. It seems to have been zipped very tightly from underneath, so maybe its not refillable. If by some chance you can get the zipper open I think you could refill with any bean bag filler, they sell it here on Walmart.com, they don't carry it in stores that I could find.

Yupp, comes with beans inside already. Sometimes, they can fill in it in with so little beans, that you may need to buy some more, but not usually. I'd wait until it arrives to see if you'd prefer any more.

The cover is removable (just use a paperclip and insert into the zipper head), but we do not recommend it, as there is no liner holding the UltimaX beans inside. If you do decide to try, be prepared with a large box or bag to empty the beans into.

This is not an inflatable chair. This is a bean bag and the material is strong. My toddler has been jumping and dragging it everywhere and it has not ripped. So no patch comes with chair. But it does lose its shape. Takes work to move the beans in it to get its shape back.
