One of the biggest reasons that some folks are unsure of whether wood or plastic is the best material for Adirondack chairs is because they are worried about the capacity. Thankfully, even though plastic is a whole lot lighter than wood, the people using the chairs don’t need to be. For instance, the Highwood AD-CHL1-NBE has a capacity of 400 lbs. This should be more than enough for most sitters. The lowest capacity of the chairs on our list is PolyTEAK Classic Folding Poly Adirondack Chair, and even that has a capacity of 300 lbs.

Unfortunately, teak is not grown in the US. It is imported from Asian countries. Couple that with its excellent weatherproof properties and outstanding strength, and you have one of the most expensive woods.
