What to look for in a Portable Zero Gravity Chair

When looking for a lightweight zero gravity chair the weight of the gravity recliner is obviously an important factor, however, one concern some may have is that a lightweight anti gravity recliner may perhaps be less sturdy than other heavier models. Although it is occasionally true that some lighter weight zero gravity recliners are not quite as sturdy as some models it is rarely the case, as you can see from the table above there doesn’t really appear to be much correlation between how light a gravity chair is and how much weight it can handle.

Looking in the comparison table above and finding a chair that would be suitable for your weight limit should be the first step to take when searching for a lightweight outdoor chair, rule out any that are unsuitable for your body weight and compare the remaining chair weights to find the most lightweight anti gravity chair that doesn’t compromise on weight capacity. All of the zero gravity chairs listed are some of the best lightweight gravity recliners currently available and many of them are also featured in our best zero gravity outdoor chair buyers guide so you can be sure with all of the chairs featured you are opting for a well rated outdoor gravity chair.

Another point to take into consideration is the popularity of the manufacturer and how well made the zero gravity chair is likely to be. A more expensive outdoor zero gravity recliner from Lafuma is going to be both very strong and lightweight due to the higher quality steel tubing frame they use and is overall likely to be a better long term investment than some of the cheaper brands, due to all of the components of the chair being replaceable. This however does not mean you have to spend a fortune, cheaper options such as the Belleze set of 2 gravity chairs (pictured) are also capable of holding a fair amount of weight and each weigh only a couple of pounds extra when compared to the Lafuma Futura model.

If you are planning on transporting your zero gravity chair on a regular basis the folded dimensions is also something you will want to consider, especially if the trunk space in your vehicle is limited. You can take a look at the folded dimensions for each of the gravity chairs listed in the portable zero gravity chair comparison table in the anti gravity chair reviews at the bottom of the page. Another thing to consider is how much the chair costs, you might feel a little happier spending less money on a more budget option if the chair is to be transported regularly, this will after all allow you to be less bothered about any deterioration such as scratches on the frame that may occur in transit.

Are there any Advantages to Buying a Lightweight Zero Gravity Chair?

Aside from the obvious advantage of having a more lightweight 0 g chair that can be carried more easily than other heavier zero gravity chairs, a lightweight chair is also going to be easier to store than heavier chairs.

As we often mention it is never a good idea to leave zero gravity chairs out in wet weather due to chances of rust, even though all outdoor gravity chairs have some form of powder coating it is never a good idea to trust it entirely to stop corrosion from the elements. A lightweight zero gravity chair that can be easily picked up and put undercover is going to provide you with more value for money and have a longer life than a zero gravity chair that you find awkward and heavy to carry. The chances are if you buy a chair that is too heavy for you to lift you may be less likely to store it regularly and in turn your chair may experience weather deterioration. Take a look at the section below if you would like some ideas on how to prevent rust and corrosion on your outdoor anti gravity recliner.

How do you Take Care of your Portable Zero Gravity Chair?

As we have touched on earlier if you are transporting your zero gravity chair often you may find that after a while general wear and tear could occur such as scraps and scratches on the chairs frame.

One nice solution to this would perhaps be to purchase a zero gravity chair carry bag such as the one pictured, when transporting your zero gravity chair it would be protected from a range of issues such as dirt, water and grease and it will be less likely to get damaged if tightly packed inside a vehicle. The Carry bag by Faulkner is also vented so you can even use it to store your zero gravity recliner throughout the winter, without fear of mold or mildew ruining the fabric of the seat.

The Faulkner carry bag is suitable for both the standard and XL sizes of the Faulkner zero gravity recliner and measures 41″ L x 48″ W x 6.5″ H, however it is not only limited to use with only Faulkner chairs. the carry bag is a very good storage option and makes carrying your zero gravity chair on your shoulder a very easy task, just remember to make sure the portable zero gravity chair you choose has dimensions that will fit the carry bag before making a purchase.

If you do prefer to leave your zero gravity recliner outdoors all year round you may also wish to consider getting one of the many All-Weather covers for outdoor chairs to protect against rust. For around $30 you can protect your anti gravity chair all year round and keep it in good condition for a longer period of time.

What Kind of Problems do Portable Zero Gravity Chairs have?

As we have briefly mentioned earlier in this portable zero gravity chairs buyers guide, you are unlikely to find any issues with the more lightweight anti gravity recliners that you wouldn’t find on other outdoor gravity chairs. As stated at the start of the guide just because a chair is lightweight for the most part it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is going to be more flimsy or able to hold less weight.

If you do need an extra large zero gravity chair rather than a standard sized chair, it is often going to weigh a couple of pounds more and you will also have to take into consideration that it will be wider when folded flat, should you need to fit the chair in the trunk of your vehicle. Oversized zero gravity chairs also tend to be a little more bulky and harder to carry by hand than standard sized zero gravity chairs due to the extra width of the seat. If you do choose to purchase a carry bag or all weather cover for your XL zero gravity be sure to check the dimensions carefully as some oversized chairs may be too wide for the accessory to hold.

You will notice that we have included one two person zero gravity chair in our list from Caravan Canopy, it should be noted that although the double wide zero gravity chairs are able to fold down just like other zero gravity recliners they are a lot less portable and way more bulky. The Caravan Canopy loveseat is one of the lightest options available, but if you are after a loveseat zero gravity chair do not expect too much portability from it. Take a look at our zero gravity loveseat buyers guide and reviews here to compare other loveseat options and see how heavy other loveseats are in comparison.

Just like all zero gravity recliners, lightweight outdoor zero gravity chairs are prone to rust and certain brands may not be as comfortable as others, to find out more information on each of the chairs listed you can visit the retailer and read FAQ’s and consumer reviews which will usually address any potential issues and highlights that each chair may have.

What are the Prices for Portable Outdoor Anti Gravity Chairs?

Unless you have your eye on a Lafuma zero gravity recliner you will not ever need to spend more than $200. Many of the single lightweight zero gravity chairs listed here retail at under $100 and in many cases you could purchase an additional carry bag or zero gravity chair all weather cover along with the gravity chair and still not exceed $100.

Generally if you are looking for a lightweight extra large zero gravity chair or a two person zero gravity recliner, you will pay in excess of $100 however rarely will you have to pay more than $150.

Lafuma gravity chairs tend to be the highest priced outdoor 0 g chairs available, they are also usually the most well made and very long lasting chairs, that in the long run provide good value for money. Take a look at our zero gravity chair reviews below to see why Lafuma anti gravity recliners are often considered the best in the business.

Lightweight Standard Sized Zero Gravity Chairs

Sunnydaze Zero Gravity Lounge Chair

The Sunnydaze zero gravity lounge chair may not look like the best quality zero gravity chair but it is a very lightweight option to consider at 15 lbs and it can be bought in a 2 pack.

If you are looking for a cheap and cheerful zero gravity recliner then the Sunnydaze recliner is not a bad choice to consider and is one of the most portable zero gravity chairs around, due to it’s lightweight and easily foldable design. One slight issue with these chairs is that the finish on the frame is a little thin so they can be prone to chipping and damage when transported, it is probably a good idea ensure they are packed securely or covered when in transit to prevent unnecessary wear and tear occurring.

If you are in need of a portable anti gravity chair that is great value for money then the Sunnydaze gravity recliners are a very good low priced option to consider.

Lightweight Two Person Zero Gravity Chairs

Caravan Canopy Zero Gravity Loveseat Chair

As mentioned earlier in the buyers guide if you are looking for a zero gravity loveseat chair then do not expect it to be highly portable. You will find all of the gravity loveseats do have the ability to fold down flat like regular sized gravity recliners, however due to their double width they will be harder to maneuver and tend to weigh between 32 – 40 lbs in weight.

One of the lightest zero gravity loveseats is the Caravan Canopy model, which is a fairly new product in 2017. The Caravan Canopy loveseat is currently the lightest on the market making it a slightly more portable option to consider. Another highly rated gravity recliner loveseat to consider is the Best Choice Products double zero gravity chair that weighs around 34 lbs and folds down to around 10 inches flat.
