It’s an unfortunate truth that many people avoid sitting outside due to conventional deck furniture hurting their backs. They simply aren’t comfortable sitting in most outdoor chairs because most outdoor chairs put undue pressure on people’s lower backs. We say most because some outdoor chairs are designed to relieve the pressure on a person’s back and these chairs are aptly called zero gravity outdoor chairs.

These pieces of furniture are designed in such a way that they take the pressure of the sitter’s lower back, allowing them to enjoy their outdoor spaces for longer periods. Since we want all of our readers to be able to enjoy their outdoor spaces without worrying about back pain, we’ve decided to review some of the best zero-gravity outdoor chairs currently being manufactured. Chairs that are sturdy, stylish, and above all else, are comfortable.

This chair is not only equipped with lumbar support but is also equipped with headrest support. That allows the sitter to kick back and feel like they’re sitting on a cloud. Another feature we liked about this chair is that it came with a large ABS cup holder that allows the consumer to not only lounge in style, but also enjoy a cold beverage while they’re doing it. And this cup holder is built into a detachable side tray that can be used for setting a sandwich or other food item.

From its frame-up, it’s easy to tell that this is a quality zero-gravity lounge chair. It’s made with a steel frame that’s capable of holding approximately 250-pounds of weight, and it has a UV-resistant Texteline mesh that’s not only designed to resist sun fading but is also resistant to snow, rain, and sleet. This product has a locking reclining system that allows the person sitting in it to glide to a zero-gravity position and lock that position into place. Because the Texteline mesh is attached to the frame using replaceable elastic cords, they’re capable of adjusting to the body as the sitter reclines. This allows the person sitting in the chair to remain comfortable as if the chair was cradling them.

Something that makes this chair stand out from the rest of the chairs out there, however, is the small features that can be found on it. For example, this chair has a headrest that supports the consumers’ neck but can be replaced if need be. It also features an adjustable canopy that can be used to help the consumer keep sunlight off of his or her’s face. It’s also a lightweight model that’s equipped with a cup holder tray for holding lunch and a drink.

This chair can also be reclined to a full 160-degrees, so the people sitting in this chair can lounge for long periods without having to worry about it hurting their back.
