2 Main Things to Consider when finding the Best Oversized Zero Gravity Chair

When searching for the perfect extra large anti gravity recliner, there are 2 very important things to take into consideration – these are, the weight capacity of the recliner and the width of the seating area between the armrests.

The Weight Capacity!

The average weight of American men and women has increased over the years, here you can see the average weight for men is around 195.5 lbs and for women 166.2 lbs.

With this in mind anyone looking for an XL zero gravity outdoor chair is going to want something sturdy!

When looking for the weight capacity of each chair you should have no problem finding this information fairly quickly. we have also included the manufacturers weight capacities for each XL gravity recliner chair in the table below and in our quick summary reviews at the bottom of the page.

For the most part, manufacturers weight capacities are fairly accurate and it is rare to find consumers questioning the specified weight capacity (although it does happen from time to time).

When checking the weight capacity of a certain chair it is always a good idea to read the FAQ’s and buyer reviews after clicking through to the retailer. This is especially useful to see if anyone has had trouble with the gravity recliner not being able to hold their weight.

Occasionally with standard, regular sized zero gravity chairs some do encounter problems with the chair collapsing under their weight, however with the XL and Oversized antigravity chairs this is a lot less likely to happen.

If you do happen to stumble upon an extra large gravity chair that has a lot of complaints about the chair collapsing, it should be a good warning sign that the chair may be fairly useless when it comes to holding extra weight.

Luckily the Extra large zero gravity chairs listed on this page have all received very good reviews overall and provided you stick within the recommended weight capacity you are very unlikely to have any problems.

Is the Seat Width Adequate?

Where possible checking the width of the seating area of the chair is also a very good idea, although you may often find this information is a little harder to acquire.

Most manufacturers will include this information and many also state something along the lines of “the XL model is X inches wider than the standard chair variation” so you can quickly consider if the oversized variation will be beneficial or if a standard sized chair should be sufficient for your body shape.

You may wish to read our blog post on do you need an regular or XL gravity zero chair? if you are at all unsure as to what sized chair would be suitable for you.

Measuring your body and comparing it to the chair dimensions and specifications is also a very good way to see whether the extra wide zero gravity chair you are looking at is going to be a good fit overall.

Taller readers may also find checking the FAQ’s and reviews on the retailers product pages beneficial. FAQ’s often have questions and statements regarding the suitability of each gravity chair when it comes to users of various height ranges.

Often people over 6 ft tall do find an oversized zero gravity chair a more preferable option over the standard variations.

However, sometimes the only difference in dimensions with an oversized gravity chair when compared to the standard sized variation is the width of the chairs seat and the overall width of the chair.

Those over 6 ft tall with a slimmer body frame occasionally may not find any advantages in purchasing an extra large zero gravity recliner. A good example of this is the Caravan Canopy Sports Infinity oversized chair (Pictured, Seat width: 25.8″) when compared to the standard Caravan Canopy Sports Infinity variation (Seat Width: 20.5″) the open dimensions of each chair are exactly the same aside from the width of the chair.

Other things you may wish to consider are if you would prefer a padded XL recliner or one with a sun canopy. There are some nice options available in a similar price range to many of the more standard looking XL anti gravity recliners.

Useful Tip!

If you are need to find the width of the seating area on an oversized zero gravity chair and it is not specified. You can often approximately work out the size of it from the overall chair width.

For example the standard sized zero gravity chair I use in my work room measures around 25″ in width overall.

Each armrest generally measures around 2.5″, therefore when you minus the width of the armrests, the space between the bars is around 20″.

From this total you can usually deduct 1 or 2 inches due to the width of the seat support bars and this gives you a total of around 18 – 19″ for the seating areas width.

For my standard sized zero gravity chair the actual measurements are 19 inches between the seating support bars and the width of the seating fabric is 17 inches.

Although most companies should list these dimensions, some do not for some bizarre reason. Therefore this is a fairly good way of estimating the space you will actually have on the chair.

Lets Compare!

Here you can see some of the differences between regular sized zero gravity recliners and their extra large variations.

What makes a good Extra Large Zero Gravity Chair?

A good oversized zero gravity chair is one that will offer you the comfort that a standard sized zero gravity chair cannot. As highlighted above the weight capacity and seat width are often what makes a gravity chair an Extra large variant.

The majority of standard sized zero gravity chairs tend to have weight capacities between 250 and 300 lbs and a seating width of around roughly 17 – 18″ on average between the armrests.

An oversized zero gravity chair with a wider seat will generally have a larger weight capacity of around 300 – 360 lbs, which is likely to be far more beneficial for larger body types, providing better and more spacious support.

Although the weight capacities on outdoor chairs are not quite as impressive as some of the office chairs for larger folk, the extra stability and strength is still more than welcome.

One thing that is often worth looking for in consumer reviews is buyers that mention how large the zero gravity chair is.

Many reviewers will either be very impressed by the large width or disappointed by the chair being labelled as oversized.

The most important feature that makes for a good oversized zero gravity chair is that it is a large and well built chair, that is superior to standard sized zero gravity chairs in durability and width.

If an oversized recliner chair cannot hold more than standard sized gravity chairs or only has a slightly larger width on the seat area, then it is probably not worth consideration.

What Kind of Problems do Outdoor XL Zero Gravity Chairs have?

An extra large outdoor zero gravity chair is likely to have many of the same problems as standard sized outdoor anti gravity chairs.

One of the main issues many have with outdoor zero gravity chairs is that occasionally the frame is not as rust resistant as they had first expected, even though it has been powder coated.

Powder coating on some zero gravity chairs really shouldn’t be trusted entirely and it is always better to be overcautious and bring your gravity recliner indoors during wetter weather, rather than have a chair that begins to rust in the first year of purchase.

If you are a little on the lazy side and would find folding the chair up for storage a hassle, it is probably a better idea to consider purchasing a cheaper oversized zero gravity chair.

This way it can be replaced each year, without you having the feeling of wasting to much money.

Alternatively you may wish to opt for one of the more expensive extra large antigravity chairs that has a better powder coat, as it may be less prone to rusting and deterioration.

As we have mentioned above weight capacity and size can also be a problem if you choose a chair that is not suitable for your weight or body shape.

For the most part if you choose an extra large zero gravity recliner that is able to hold your weight comfortably, you should not have an issue with it buckling under the pressure.

Another notable difference with XL zero gravity chairs is that they are larger and slightly heavier when folded when compared to standard sized folded outdoor gravity chairs.

The difference in the folded size and weight is often fairly insignificant however if you plan on transporting your extra large zero gravity chair, or need to carry it by hand on a regular basis you should take a look at our XL gravity chair reviews below where we have highlighted how heavy each chair is.

It is also worth checking the folded dimensions of the chair you are interested in to make sure the chair can be easily transported in your vehicle.

What are the Price Ranges for an Outdoor Oversized Zero Gravity Chair?

Overall you will generally pay a little more for an oversized zero gravity recliner than you would if you bought a standard sized recliner. Oversized chairs as a whole tend to be of a better quality, especially when compared to the cheap standard sized gravity recliners around. In some cases oversized gravity recliners can cost around 3 times as much as a standard sized patio recliner however for the most part you are unlikely to spend a great deal more.

The cheaper oversized zero gravity chairs are usually priced between about $50 – $100, with the vast majority of oversized gravity recliners being available for around $70 – $130. It is unlikely you will spend in excess of $200 for an XL anti gravity recliner unless you are opting for a very high quality chair from a manufacturer such as Lafuma.

Timber Ridge XL Padded Zero Gravity Chair – Our Top Pick!

Timber Ridge Oversized XL Padded Zero Gravity Chair - Earth

 

With a very sturdy design that’s able to hold up to 350 lbs in weight, the Timber Ridge XL anti gravity recliner is a great choice overall.

It is also in our opinion the best padded oversized zero gravity chair on sale!

Whether you are looking for a solid heavy duty oversized zero gravity chair.

Or a large comfortable recliner chair with a little extra padding in the seating area.

The Timber Ridge oversized zero gravity chair is a stand out choice.

This stylish outdoor zero gravity chair features a good looking seating area and adjustable wooden armrests, that really make it stand out from other more bland XL gravity recliners.

This is an excellent XL padded zero gravity chair to consider if you are on the taller side and is a very comfortable zero gravity chair that’s suitable for a range of body types.

The 21.26 inch seat width may not be the widest around when compared to other oversized gravity recliners.

However, the 350 lb weight capacity certainly makes up for this and there are few oversized gravity chairs that can hold more weight.

The one minor downside to the Timber Ridge recliner, is that some have found it does not stand up very well against the weather.

Some complaints of rust if left outdoors have been mentioned, so as we always suggest you should fold your recliner up for storage during the wetter months.

Aside from the occasional rust issues this is a very good oversized zero gravity chair to consider.

Overall this is a very durable outdoor chair, that is also comfortable, stylish and very well rated.

Caravan Sports Infinity Oversized Zero Gravity Chair – Best Budget Option!

Caravan Canopy Oversized Black Zero Gravity Chair

 

The Caravan Canopy Oversized chair is a fairly low priced option that measures 5.3 inches wider than the standard Caravan Canopy model.

The Caravan Canopy chair is a fairly lightweight XL gravity recliner with a pretty sturdy design that can hold up to 330 lbs in weight.

Due to the low price of the Caravan Sports Infinity it is by far the most popular extra large gravity recliner chair on the market and has a number of positive reviews.

As with many other low price oversized zero gravity chairs there is not too much that makes this gravity recliner’s features any better than others.

Many however do find that for comfort, the Caravan Canopy range are a nice choice, especially if you are looking for an un-padded Textilene style XL zero gravity chair.

Overall the Caravan Canopy chair is a very good choice if you are on a tight budget and are looking for a locking multi positioning extra large outdoor zero gravity recliner.

For the low price however, do not expect too much from this oversized chair, as you may be a little disappointed.

Lafuma Futura XL Zero Gravity Recliner – Best Quality!

Lafuma Futura XL Zero Gravity Chair - Blue Iso Batyline Fabric

 

When it comes to high quality the Lafuma Brand are always steps ahead whether you are looking for a standard sized or XL zero gravity chair.

This high quality comes at a price however, and as anyone who knows anything about zero gravity chairs will tell you, Lafuma recliners do not come cheap.

Although the price may be a downside to some, the Lafuma XL zero gravity recliner is often considered worth it by many.

The Lafuma Futura is one of the most lightweight XL gravity chairs around and features a lacquered High Elastic Limit (HEL) steel tubing frame.

Although the Lafuma Futura XL doesn’t have the highest weight capacity out of all of the chairs listed here, the HEL frame allows the chair to be very strong and robust.

The HEL frame also allows the recliner to weigh less when compared to other oversized anti gravity recliners, making it one of the more portable oversized zero gravity chairs available.

Another great design feature of the Lafuma Futura is the clip system that offers better support to the back and spreads the bodies weight better than the more traditional bungee cord system on other outdoor gravity recliners.

Another small advantage to the clip system is that you will not need to ever buy replacement cord and it is easier to remove and reattach the seating area.

The quality of Lafuma zero gravity chairs is often backed up by the high ratings and reviews that the chairs receive.

Another advantage to the Lafuma chairs is that all of the parts are very well made and replaceable should they ever deteriorate, meaning you would not have to fork out for a new chair every few years.

Overall Lafuma chairs are considered a very good long term investment and a zero gravity recliner suitable for tall and large people, that is built to last.

Unlike some XL zero gravity chairs the Lafuma Futura is great for comfortably accommodating anyone over 6 ft tall.

Faulkner Laguna X-Large Padded Zero Gravity Chair – Best Value!

Faulkner Laguna Style Dual Green Padded Recliner

 

Like the Timber Ridge chair above, the Faulkner Laguna extra large padded zero gravity chair is a very good padded and wide zero gravity chair option to consider.

One slight downside perhaps is however, the slightly lower than average 300 lbs weight capacity, which may be considered a little too flimsy for some.

As far as comfort levels go, this padded oversized zero gravity chair is one of the best and the locking mechanism on the chair is also very good at keeping the user securely locked in place.

Overall this is a very good XL padded zero gravity lounger for both shorter and taller users to consider.

The extra large variation is actually both wider and longer than the standard model of the chair. Taller users in particular should love that this chair has a longer leg rest and slightly higher seat.

The only downsides are perhaps, the 300 lb weight capacity and that the recliner is a bit heavier to carry than some of the other oversized antigravity chairs available.

On the plus side however, the price of this oversized zero gravity recliner is lower than most of the other padded and high quality options on sale.

It also looks really nice in comparison to many of the more budget XL zero gravity chairs.

Bliss Hammocks 33" Width XXL Anti Gravity Recliner With Canopy - Terra Cotta Flowers

Currently this is the widest oversized zero gravity chair on sale and it is also one with the highest weight capacity (not taking into account indoor gravity recliners) making it one of the best heavy duty zero gravity chairs for big and tall people.

The smaller extra wide version of the Bliss Hammocks zero gravity chair is also an excellent choice should you not need quite as much width! It is also very well rated and has a weight capacity of 360 lbs.

Both the extra wide zero gravity chair and the XXL gravity chair from Bliss Hammocks are very good choices and some of the best oversized zero gravity chairs with sun canopy on sale.

The XXL gravity recliner in particular has received some exceptional reviews, however since this chair is fairly new there are not a huge amount of reviews go on.

The few who have reviewed the chair however, are all in agreement that this is one of the largest and most heavy duty zero gravity chair around.

If you need a very large amount of space then the Bliss Hammocks XXL zero gravity chair should not disappoint!
