Hello Cliosporters. I'm looking at buying a set of buckets off of a friend. Problem is... he lives miles away and I can't try them out. He's sent me these dimensions... Now the only buckets i've sat in that i've known the size of were 40cm wide where these are 35. Are there any other fat people who can advise me on the fitting in the seat issue? The 40cm ones were fine (from memory, it was ages ago). I would try some more out for comparison but I don't know of anyone with buckets on this stupid island. btw... i'm not a massive obese mess, just festively plump. also just noticed that 27cm dimension around the chest. mmmm rib crushing.
