Best Outdoor Zero Gravity Chairs Table
What to Consider when looking for Outdoor Zero Gravity Chairs
When searching for an outdoor zero gravity chair the first thing to consider is price and what your budget is. From looking at the table above you can see there are a range of chairs that are suitable for a number of budgets. Although all of the chairs in the table are highly rated, price does play an important factor in the rating, the cheap Odaof zero gravity chairs have a similar rating to, for example, the Lafuma Futura, however the Odaof recliner is a fraction of the price and for that lower price you are not going to get the same quality than if you opted for one of the more expensive zero gravity chairs such as the Lafuma Futura.
The first thing to decide is whether you are after an outdoor gravity chair that is more of a long term investment, if you are happy to spend a little extra on a more expensive chair, the chances are it will stay in good condition for longer and often be made from better materials. If on the other hand you are happy to get a cheaper gravity chair with a view to replacing it every few years then one of the cheaper options should be a very suitable choice. If you are on a tight budget you may be interested in taking a look at our recommended low priced zero gravity chairs buying guide, where you will see that you do not always have to shell out a great deal in order to get one of the best zero gravity outdoor chairs.
The next thing to consider is what sort of outdoor zero gravity chair are you after? Are you looking for a single zero gravity chair or a set of 2 zero gravity chairs? Are you looking for a standard sized zero gravity chair or do you need an XL or Oversized zero gravity chair? If you are looking for a set of two zero gravity recliners you can take a look at our best sets of 2 zero gravity chairs buying guide here, alternatively you could consider purchasing 2 x individual gravity chairs from the options listed in the table above, with many of the cheaper options listed you can buy an extra zero gravity chair for around the same price as some of the sets of 2 gravity chair packs.
When looking for the best zero gravity chair it is also worthwhile to consider the weight capacity of each chair and the quality of materials used, if you have in the past felt certain standard sized zero gravity chairs feel a little unstable, perhaps choosing an extra large anti gravity recliner would be a better choice. Visiting the retailer to read the FAQ’s is a great way to gain information, as are the consumer reviews, you will probably be surprised how extensive many of the FAQ’s are and they are a really good way to see if the zero gravity chair would be suitable for your body type and an excellent way to see how good the build and design of the chair is. You can also check out our zero gravity chair reviews at the bottom of the page for each of the chairs listed in the table, we will often highlight what makes the chairs a worthy investment as well as any reasons why you may wish to consider a different brand of chair.
What makes a good Outdoor Zero Gravity Chair?
The best zero gravity chair is one that is going to provide excellent comfort regardless of the price, although it is occasionally true that spending a little extra on a zero gravity chair will mean the chair is of a better overall quality, it doesn’t always mean that it is a more comfortable option. It is also a good idea to see if any other buyers have commented on how far back the zero-g recliner reclines back, after all, the main reason people opt for this style of chair over a standard patio chair is due to the zero gravity positioning that can be achieved. The Outsunny zero gravity chairs are one zero gravity chair listed here that many feel do not recline back as much as other outdoor anti gravity chairs, however many cannot fault the comfort that the chairs provide and for most the recline angle of the Outsunny chairs does not appear to be much of a problem.
Whether you are looking for a portable zero gravity chair that can be taken camping or used outdoors on the patio, our buying guide and outdoor zero gravity chair reviews below will help you find the most comfortable and best quality zero gravity chairs at affordable prices, that have received a lot of positive feedback from other buyers.
What Kind of Problems do Outdoor Zero Gravity Chairs have?
The main issue with outdoor antigravity chairs that people come across is rust problems on the steel frame. Almost every zero-g chair for the outdoors will feature some kind of weatherproof coat on the steel frame usually in the form of powder coating and although most assume that this is adequate protection against the weather it is not always the case. We would always recommend taking advantage of the lightweight folding design of outdoor anti gravity chairs during the wetter months by storing them indoors regardless of how well made they appear. While the majority of rust problems are reported on some of the cheaper gravity chair models, you should also store more expensive outdoors chairs as this will make them last much longer without deterioration.
Another rare issue with certain chair brands is that the seat fabric fades when left out in the sun. For the most part, many of the top zero gravity chair manufacturer’s products and well rated gravity chairs will not have this problem but it is something that should be checked in the either the FAQ’s or reviews, especially if you are opting for an outdoor gravity recliner that is from a fairly unknown brand or has mixed reviews.
Generally the weight capacity of a zero gravity chair should not be an issue provided you choose a chair that can comfortably hold your weight. The weight capacity is often a good indicator as to how sturdy the zero gravity chair is and a good way to check if the manufacturers weight capacity claim is honest. A good way to check how accurate a chairs weight capacity is to see if a number of buyers have mentioned the chair breaking in their reviews on the retailer’s page. You will likely find that most of the zero gravity chair weight capacities listed are very accurate, especially when buying from a larger brand such as Caravan Canopy, Bliss Hammocks and Lafuma. It is also worth considering that if you do see a couple of buyers that have had issues with the chair’s weight capacity, yet no one else has appeared to, it is probably more down to the individual buyers choosing a zero gravity chair that is not suitable for them rather than a design flaw with the chair or an inaccurate weight capacity claim. The Timber Ridge XL zero gravity chair (pictured) is a great choice if you are looking for a very sturdy anti gravity recliner with a large 350 lbs weight capacity.

What do our Reviews say?
Odaof Zero Gravity Chair Recliner
If you are looking for a low priced zero gravity recliner for the outdoors then the Odaof gravity recliner is a comfortable option and one of the cheapest gravity recliners available. The Odaof recliner comes with a small drinks and accessories tray included and has a very functional twist knob lock allowing for multiple recline angles from the upright position through to the zero gravity position.
For such a low priced gravity chair the Odaof recliner can hold a respectable 300 lbs in weight and is a very portable zero gravity chair weighing approximately 20 lbs in weight. One downside is that the frame of the chair is not very resistant to rust and it is highly recommended that this recliner is not left outdoors during wet weather.
Considering the price, many are unable to fault this cheap, well made outdoor anti gravity recliner.
Outsunny Zero Gravity Recliner
A very similar zero gravity outdoor chair to the Odaof gravity recliner, that features the same lightweight and portable design and equally good weight capacity. The Outsunny zero gravity chairs are available in a range of good looking colors and are a low priced, well built choice of outdoor gravity recliner.
The Outsunny zero-g recliner features a twist lock mechanism for multiple recline positioning and is a sturdy and comfortable chair to consider. The main letdown of the Outsunny antigravity chairs is that they do not recline quite as fully as some other outdoor gravity chairs, for the majority however, this is a very good low priced gravity chair that has left a great many consumers highly satisfied with their purchase.
Caravan Sports Infinity Zero Gravity Chair
The Caravan Sports regular sized gravity chair one of the more popular zero gravity recliners around and is a very affordable zero gravity chair that should suit everyone’s budget. The standard sized zero gravity chair from Caravan Canopy is available in a range of colors, as is the extra large variation from the same brand.
The zero gravity recliner from Caravan Canopy features an easy to lock mechanism to allow for multiple position reclining and folds down to just over 6 inches making it a very portable and storage friendly garden chair. The good looking recliner is often complemented for it’s stylish design and it’s comfortable seating area with many stating it is one of the better low priced zero gravity chairs that they have owned. The materials also make this gravity chair an excellent choice for the outdoors as the recliner seat features long lasting Textilene fabric and a powder coated steel frame that is fairly resistant to rust and deterioration.
Lafuma Futura Zero Gravity Recliner
The Lafuma range of zero gravity outdoor recliners are an outdoor chair that ticks all the right boxes. You will rarely see a bad review for Lafuma gravity recliners as they often exceed expectations a great deal, combining exceptional comfort with expert workmanship. If you are looking for a high quality, well made zero g recliner for the outdoors capable of multiple positioning then the Lafuma Futura is definitely one of the best available.
The only real downside to the Lafuma Futura is the price making it an unsuitable option if you are on a tight budget. If you do have the money to spend and are looking for a long term investment rather than a gravity chair that will only be used for a couple of years, then the Lafuma 0 gravity chair is a good choice with many buyers stating it is the best zero gravity chair they have tried.

Faulkner Laguna Padded Zero Gravity Chair
The Faulkner range are some of the cheapest padded zero gravity chairs around and really stand out when compared to the more common single tone chairs. If you are looking for an affordable zero gravity chair that is slightly better in looks and quality than many of the budget options available, then the Faulkner Laguna chair is a very nice choice.
The Faulkner chair is available in a range of one tone or two tone colors and is also available in a XL variation. This chair is suitable for anyone between the heights of roughly 5 ft 2 – 6 ft tall, if you are under 5 ft you may find this chair a little too large or if you are over 6 ft the XL variation of this chair will probably be a more suitable outdoor gravity chair option to consider. Overall if you are looking for something slightly more comfortable than many of the standard Textilene material chairs then the padded zero gravity chair from Faulkner may be just what you are looking for.
Sundale Outdoor Oversized Zero Gravity Chair
Although many of the features of this extra large zero gravity recliner may not be seen as advantages when compared with other XL zero gravity chairs, the Sundale Outdoor zero gravity recliner is very good value for money and one of the cheapest extra large anti gravity recliners available.
The Sundale Outdoor gravity chair is a fairly lightweight option compared to other oversized chairs and can be folded up easily making it a very portable 0 gravity chair for camping and travelling. Overall the extra width seat provides more comfort than many of the similar priced standard sized zero gravity recliners making the Sundale Outdoor no gravity chair a very good investment if you are looking for an affordable oversized anti gravity recliner, that in many cases exceeds expectations.
Caravan Canopy Oversized Zero Gravity Chair
Measuring 5.3 inches wider than the standard model (also listed here) the Caravan Canopy oversized chair is a very suitable option if you find standard sized gravity chairs a little too snug for your liking. It is true that there are cheaper oversized zero gravity chairs available, however very few have the same level of popularity as the Caravan Canopy model and the high ratings often given by buyers are certainly a good reason to consider this XL gravity recliner over others.
Feature wise there is very little than separates this gravity recliner from the competition, the lightweight design and 330 lbs weight capacity are certainly good features though, especially if you are looking for a sturdy and durable extra large gravity recliner that can be easily transported. Comfort wise the Caravan Canopy range can rarely be faulted, however some may find that they get a more relaxing, comfortable experience from a padded extra large zero gravity chair.
- Weight Capacity: 330 lbs
- Chair Weight: 22 lbs
- Available in a range of Colors
- Our Rating: 4.4 out of 5
Faulkner Laguna X-Large Padded Zero Gravity Chair
When looking for a thick padded, comfortable XL zero gravity chair there are not a great deal of options around, making the Faulkner Laguna is an excellent choice to consider. Although the outdoor padded Faulkner anti-gravity chairs are not as low priced as many of the other cheap zero gravity chairs listed here, they are sure to provide superior comfort over the Textilene style chairs and provide a softer support overall thanks to their padded seat.
The extra large Faulkner Laguna zero gravity chair locks securely into place and is able to achieve multiple recline angles. The only very minor issue with the Faulkner gravity recliner is that it is a little heavier than some oversized 0 gravity chairs so is perhaps a little harder to transport and carry, this however should not really be an issue for most.

The Belleze set of 2 zero gravity chairs are one of the best 2 pack’s available and work out to a very cheap price when you take into consideration how much each chair in the set costs individually. The large 330 lb weight capacity of each chair is something which really makes them stand out from the majority of other standard sized zero gravity recliners.
