I bought one of these northwest-territory-xtreme-tension-hard-arm-chairs at a Kmart about 5 years ago. Liked it so well I bought another one then 2 more. Cost about $17. Kmart and Sears online show out of stock but the link I posted shows them for $11. Mine did not come with the attached cup holder.

We love the zero-gravity kind. There are lots of good brands out there, but my best advise is simply try out the chair before making a choice. We actually ended up buying a no-name zero gravity chair that was on sale at Camping World simply because it felt so comfy. We've had them for 2 years and not regretted the purchase at all. LOVE the fact that you can lean back and enjoy. Even our cats love them:


We bought a couple "like these" at CW 3 years ago - not saying exactly like nina's .... ours are heavy as hel... well you know, look like hel... well you know, have rusted like hel... well you know. On sale special price of (I think) about 80 bucks. Now days they spend most of their lives stored in the deepest recess of our basement - why I don't just leave them by a dumpster, I don't know.

Other than that, they are great chairs!

For the last six years I have been using these "Deluxe Sun Chairs." I bought them from R.E.I. and they are the most comfortable folding chairs I've ever sat in. R.E.I. no longer sells them but I see they are available from Sears, as well as several on-line stores. One caveat, they are on the narrow side, so if you are "broad in the beam" they may not be a good fit.

Gotta see if I can find those, I find with most chairs the backs are to straight, we have a pair of the zero gravity chairs from sears but they are pretty heavy to lug around.

I use and love the Strongback folding chairs:

Strongback Chairs



I like the storability of the folding bag type chairs (compact tubes) that don't take up a lot of storage space in the basement and, as opposed to regular folding chairs, take up an immense amount of storage space or have to stored hanging, exposed to the elements, on the rear ladder to save said space. These chairs have a nicely angled back, a straight seat that doesn't sag (I don't like the regular compact chairs that sag so that you feel like you are sitting in a bucket, cut off the circulation by cutting into the back of your legs and are awkward to get out of), and built in lumbar support that is quite comfortable on my bad back. It doesn't have a foot rest, but, I have little footstools that also fold into flat 10"x10" little bags for getting my legs up. I carry 5 of these Strongback Chairs in my basement along with two folding tables (again tube type storage) and they don't take up the space of two regular type folding chairs/recliners.


My 2 cents, your mileage may vary...

You can also find them on the internet under the name "E-Z Sun Chair."

We love our zero gravity chairs so we can put up our feet at the end of a long day. We have to keep them in the shower when traveling, and they are heavy but we only have to carry them a short distance to put under the awning. The zero gravity chairs were from Linens and Things (Out of business?). We also have some canvas/aluminum folding chairs that are light and easy to carry so that we can sit near the fire. Target has these.


Still having fun!

We have 3 chairs we bought at the going out of business sale at AMES. They look like director chairs except there are 5 legs that spider out and the seat can rotate all the way around. The kids usually spin around and around. We gets compliments on them all the time but they are getting older and we're trying to keep them as long as we can.
