Lafuma Futura Outdoor Relaxer Siegle Chair, Extra Large
I have 2 of these chairs, the oldest is about 4 years old now. It has now broken beyond repair, the stitching of the fabric has completely ripped off the plastic part. For a high quality product at this price I would've thought it should've lasted longer than 4 years. I could buy 5 similar chairs for the price of this one so I expected more. The newer one is still okay for how long i'm not sure. I thought I should write this review as most people write in the first few weeks of owning - too early to make a proper judgement. Chair on the whole is comfortable but in my opinion poor value for money.

You need to be tall!
I'm 5ft 10ish and big built,but found my feet were not on the ground when the chair was upright.
It's been a long time since I last experienced dangling feet. I thought the extra large size would fit the bill, as I usually find loungers or recliners too low. I would suggest you need to be a six footer at least.
I am reordering the standard size.

Great Summer Chairs
These chairs are wonderfully comfortable, light and easy to store. For us they solved the problem of having to store separate cushions and chairs. Now we are out in the sun in a flash.
They recline almost fully horizontally, this is on a pivot rather than a series of notches so there is wide range of angles you can sit at.
The one word of caution is that I would strongly recommend is that you sit in them before you buy. They come in two sizes. If you are tall you are probably going to want to buy the larger chair. This is because they have a bar that acts as a foot rest. I am a shade under 6 feet and found that with the smaller version the back of my ankle that was lining up with the foot rest not my feet.
Thanks to John Lewis who delivered them to us in the West County exactly when they said they would.

My loss, his gain!
I bought the relaxer for myself, but my back really hurts in the recline position; however, my husband loves it and so it became an early, and much appreciated early birthday present. At some stage I may invest in a lounger for me.

Perfect garden recliner
Being tall this extras large chair is ideal for me. Also getting on a bit I have difficulties with low chairs, such as the usual sun loungers, the seat on this chair is much higher therefore easy to get in and out of.
The seat is very comfortable, similar to a hammock.
Maybe a little expensive but it is well made and should last for years.

Trying to take advantage of a sudden sunny weekend I ordered this Saturday pm and was sitting in it by 12.30 on the Sunday using the brilliant click and collect service. It is so comfortable, easy to store away and not heavy. Adjusts easily into several positions for relaxing or sitting up to have a drink. Well worth the price. This size was great for my husband and I bought the smaller one for myself.

I am very pleased that I bought this chair. It is just about light enough to move around when you need to store it but it comes into its own when you recline in it - you can even fall asleep in it because it is so comfortable.
