Perfect Relaxation in Zero Gravity Chairs

A zero gravity recliner chair places you in the naturally relaxed position a human body assumes in a weightless environment.

They are excellent for people with back problems indeed.

I found that my zero gravity chairs were the ideal solution to accompany the double hammock I purchased earlier this year. The model I chose is portable (Caravan Sports Infinity Zero Gravity Chair – and it is the best zero gravity chair in my opinion), I can use it at home, or take it with me to an outdoor event.

I’d like to tell you more about it below.

Caravan Sports Infinity Zero Gravity Chair

Best zero gravity chair

I chose the Caravan Sports Infinity Zero Gravity Chair for my home and bought two of them.

They fit both the taller and shorter members of my family, all the way up to 6’1” in height, and they hold up to 300 pounds of weight.

Even though they have a steel frame, each chair only weighs 18 pounds. When I fold them up, they both fit into the trunk of the car. But to be honest, these chairs spend most of their time in the backyard.

Everyone in the family loves the Zero Gravity Chairs. They recline backward so far that they make star-gazing at night a very enjoyable activity. On hot days, it’s very pleasant to sit in them and sip a cold drink.

The texta line fabric doesn’t feel sweaty or itchy, and it dries quickly if it gets wet.

Caravan Sports sells this chair in 8 different colors. I selected blue because it went well with my Vivere Double Hammock. The metal frame is powder-coated in black so it resists scratching and rust. The bungee-like cord that suspends the fabric on the frame is strong and durable. I can foresee these chairs lasting for years.

Pros

  • Holds up to 300 pounds, measures 20.5 inches wide and opens out to 64.5-inches long
  • Strong steel frame has powder coating
  • Bungee cord lacing is strong and supports weight evenly
  • Textiline fabric is breathable and comfortable
  • Recliner locks are simple to operate
  • Folds up so it can travel with you
  • Comes in 8 different colors

Cons

  • I found no cons for this chair at all

Although the Infinity chair is plenty wide and tall for members of my family, you might prefer something a little larger for your home.

I’d like to tell you about a wider zero gravity chair below.


Caravan Sports Infinity Oversized Zero Gravity Chair

Caravan Sports also makes a 25.8-inch wide version of their Infinity Zero Gravity Chair.

It supports up to 330 pounds. Other than the additional width and extra strength, it has the same comfortable design as the original.

The steel frame is powder-coated to resist scratching and rust, while the textiline fabric is soft and comfortable. You can move the headrest downward to serve as a lumbar support. The chair reclines or locks into position when you pull or release the rings under each chair arm.

Fold up the chair and take it camping or to the beach. It weighs 18 pounds and fits in the trunk or backseat of your vehicle.

Pros

  • Holds up to 300 pounds, measures 25.8 inches wide and opens out to 64.5 inches long
  • Strong steel frame has powder coating
  • Bungee cord lacing is strong and supports weight evenly
  • Textiline fabric is breathable and comfortable
  • Recliner locks are simple to operate
  • Folds up so it can travel with you
  • Comes in 6 different colors

Cons

  • I found no cons for this chair at all

If you’re not sure if the chairs from Caravan Sports are the best ones for you.

I found another popular chair while I was researching to find the best ones. I’d like to describe it for you below.


Lafuma Futura XL Zero Gravity Recliner

Lafuma Futura XL Zero Gravity Recliner - Grey Steel Frame with Iso Batyline® Fabric - Océan

While I saw that the Lafuma Futura XL Zero Gravity Recliner was also a popular product, I decided against it for two reasons.

One, I saw many user complaints about the chair not holding up well under use.

And two, it was priced lot higher than the Caravan Sports chairs.

But this recliner may suit you better if you have taller people in your family.

When the chair is fully reclined, it opens out to 71 inches in length as opposed to the 64.5 inches for the chairs described above. It supports up to 330 pounds like the Infinity XL recliner.

Lafuma says their fabric, Batyline, won’t stretch out of shape, fade, or mildew, and it is washable. The body of the chair is suspended by elastic clips, not cord. Because of this design, you can take the chair apart and wash the fabric.

Another difference between the Lafuma and the Caravan Sports chairs is their system for reclining the chair. While the Caravan Sports Infinity chairs have a simple lock-on, lock-off system, the Lafuma has resistance levers. This means you can move the chair while it’s “locked” and it returns to the original position.

Pros

  • Fits taller people because it opens out to 71 inches
  • Supports up to 330 pounds of weight
  • Comes in 3 different colors
  • Fabric doesn’t fade or mildew or stretch, and it can be washed
  • Elastic clips reportedly distribute weight better
  • Resistance levers allow some movement without losing position

Cons

  • I saw several reports about it falling apart, although this is somewhat mitigated by Lafuma’s 2-year warranty

Are you wondering how did I find my best zero gravity chairs?

I’d like to tell you about how I came to choose these three chairs as my top picks.


Top 3 Comparison

4 Criteria I Used To Find My Best Zero Gravity Chair

Although there are many zero gravity chairs on the market, my top three picks are in this review. I didn’t want features like a cup holder or a canopy because those weren’t essential for me or my family. Instead, I looked for these other characteristics:

  • Comfortable
  • Easy to use
  • Durable
  • Right size for members of my family

Zero gravity recliners are comfortable by design, so I looked for details that enhanced them. I liked the adjustable headrest/lumbar support on the Caravan Sports’ models. I also wanted a fabric that was breathable and easy to clean.

We have a variety of ages and ability levels in my family, so I made sure everyone would find the recliner to be easy to use.

I also wanted a chair that would be durable enough to enjoy outdoors and on the occasional camping trip.

Finally, I wanted to purchase a chair that would be the right size for my family to use.

Conclusion

I hope you enjoyed this review of the top zero gravity recliner chairs.

This summer, my family and I are enjoying the Infinity from Caravan Sports. My wish is that you will soon have the best zero gravity chair for you and your family, too.

To wrap up, here are the best features of each chair in this review:

The Caravan Sports Infinity Zero Gravity Chair has a breathable fabric surface suspended by bungee-type cords. It is easy to recline and locks into position with the use of two finger rings under the arms. The chair folds up so you can take it to events. It comes in 8 colors.

The Caravan Sports Infinity Oversized Zero Gravity Chair is just like the original Infinity recliner except that it is five inches wider and accommodates up to 30 pounds more weight. It comes in 6 colors.

The Lafuma Futura XL Zero Gravity Recliner is made for taller people and it supports up to 330 pounds. It comes in 3 colors. The fabric surface is washable and resistant to fading and mildew.

Recommendation

My family loves our two Caravan Sports Infinity Zero Gravity Chairs. For us, they were the best value for the money.

If you would like a chair that supports up to 330 pounds, consider getting either the Oversized Infinity chair from Caravan Sports or the Lafuma Futura XL.

If you prefer a chair suitable for very tall people, take a look at the Lafuma Futura XL.

I hope this review of the best zero gravity chairs helped you find the best one for you. Check back for more reviews of products for comfortable home living.

In case you haven’t tried a zero gravity chair, I’ll tell you how this one works. First, you can raise or lower the headrest by pushing it up or down inside the fabric of the chair. It can serve as a lumbar support for your lower back.

Some people prefer to make sure the recliner is locked before they sit because the chair feels more stable. There are two finger rings, one under each chair arm. These control the locking mechanism. Once you’re seated, pull on them, and the lock releases. Push on the arms and the chair reclines.

You can re-lock the chair to keep it from moving if you shift position. Then when you want to get up, release the lock again. Pull on the arms and lean forward. The chair will move to an upright position. It operates a lot like a recliner in a living room.
