So why opt for a Padded Zero Gravity Chair?
If you love spending time outdoors relaxing in the sun you are going to want a recliner chair with high levels of comfort.

Another great reason to choose a padded outdoor zero gravity recliner is because of how stylish they look.
Lets be honest, Textiline zero gravity chairs generally look great outdoors but generally look a little cheap when used in an indoor setting.

Lafuma Futura Air Comfort Zero Gravity Recliner – Standard size
The Lafuma Futura Air Comfort is quite clearly one of the most padded outdoor zero gravity chairs on the market.
It is also very well constructed as you would expect from any zero gravity chair from the Lafuma range.
The one downside however many find with Lafuma zero gravity chairs is their high cost.
The very well padded seat of this zero gravity recliner is triple padded for excellent comfort. As you can see in the image to the right no other padded zero gravity chair for the outdoors provides a more comfortable pad.
Another great feature on this Lafuma zero gravity chair is the Lafuma patented clip system which attaches the seat to the frame.
This clip system allows for easy removal of the padded seat and provides firmer comfort and better support compared to bungee style suspension zero gravity chairs.
As you may already know Lafuma zero gravity chairs are always considered to be very high in quality.
However there is often a debate as to whether their zero gravity chairs are worth the extra cost.
Due to the longevity of Lafuma zero gravity chairs many feel they are quite good value in the long run.
And due to the uniqueness of this particular chair and the comfort provided by it, the price is fairly justifiable.
One last great design feature of the Lafuma range is their weight. This chair despite its bulky look, only weighs around 18.5 lbs making it a fairly lightweight option.
As with most Lafuma gravity recliners buyer reviews are a little low in number for this chair, however all reviewers have given very high ratings! You can see all the reviews on the product pages by following the links below.

This is another really nice padded extra large sized zero gravity chair from Timber Ridge.
Much like the Timber Ridge chair featured above this chair has received some very good reviews and looks very stylish.
The wide 20″ seat on this padded recliner combined with the 350 lbs weight capacity make this chair a great choice for various users of all different sizes.
Also as with other gravity chairs from the Timber Ridge range this chair has very good zero gravity positioning, reclining back to a very satisfying angle!

So this XL zero gravity chair doesn’t feature padding throughout the whole of the bedded area.
The seat of this zero gravity recliner does feature padding however the backrest area is actually a mesh material.
Despite this, the reviews for this particular chair have so far been so good we could not leave it out here.
The wide 21.3 inch seat makes this a very spacious recliner and much like the XL Timber Ridge zero gravity chairs, the 350 lbs weight capacity makes this a strong and sturdy choice!
Also like the Timber Ridge recliners on this page, the Portal zero gravity chair reclines back to a very good angle which should satisfy any user of the chair.

Westfield Outdoor XL Padded Zero Gravity Chair
On first glance this zero gravity chair looks a very good padded recliner, available at quite a low price when compared to similar padded zero gravity chairs.
Overall the buyer reviews are very good, however there are a few negative ones that stand out.
This zero gravity chair is listed as having a 350 lbs weight capacity, however some state this is not the case.
One thing to be wary of when buying an extra large zero gravity chair is if the weight capacity is correct.
If one buyer states the weight capacity is wrong, you can often disregard it as perhaps a ‘one off’, however when multiple users do you should pay attention.
If you are on the heavier side we would suggest you disregard this particular chair and look more to the Timber Ridge options above, simply to be on the safe side.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a cheap padded zero gravity chair and do not feel you weigh too much for this chair to handle, this chair isn’t a bad choice at all.
Overall the Westfield Outdoor zero gravity chair provides a good amount of space and provides some great comfort.
We would however, certainly recommend reading the buyer reviews for this chair before committing to a purchase. As you will see many of the ratings are excellent, but there are also some pretty negative reviews mixed in.
Overall a good chair if you are on a budget, but not as strong as the manufacturer states.
It also features a nice side table that flips under the chair when not in use.
Our Rating: 4.2 / 5
Faulkner Padded Zero Gravity Chairs – standard or XL
The Faulkner padded zero gravity chairs are probably some of the cheapest around, they are also available in either standard size or extra large.

On some models the ratings are almost perfect, yet on others they are a little mixed.
Generally speaking the XL padded chairs from Faulkner appear to be the best choice based on buyer opinion, however they are very large leaving smaller users feeling a little dwarfed.
Since the extra large variation is very spacious it’s an ideal choice for taller users or anyone who requires some extra width.
Overall the Faulkner padded chairs are a very solid design and both the standard and XL variations can hold up to 300 lbs in weight.
Many love the size and the comfort provided by the padded gravity chairs from Faulkner, however some would prefer it if they reclined a little further back!
Since there are such a wide variety of padded zero gravity chairs from Faulkner, the link below takes you to the Faulkner category page.
There you can click on each individual chair to learn more and view the chairs specifications.
One last thing to mention is, due to the difference in ratings for each color variation we would advise you to read the buyer reviews for other color variations also.
