Default Zero Gravity Chairs

I am looking to buy a new Zero Gravity Chair to use while babysitting my stick burner at competitions. Which ones should I be looking at? Does anyone use the Caravan Canopy over-sized? I'd like something that holds up well and won't rust or break within a season. I'd also prefer to stay under $100. Thanks.

This is the one I use and it is on sale now. I am 6'2" and weigh 240. The XL one fits me perfect. It is perfect to sleep in at cook-offs and mine has held up well for about 4 years now. I had a cheaper one first that lasted one season.

Amazon.com: Faulkner XL Recliner Black Mesh with Padded Arms: Patio, Lawn & Garden@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41O%2Boa1HcvL.@@AMEPARAM@@41O%2Boa1HcvL

This one is $130, but it is the XL size (I am 6'3'' and 230lbs) and it is the mesh one so better breathability which to me is key when I'm baby sitting a smoker in hot weather.

The standard size, all padded version, is $99 on amazon:

There are add on features like a table with cup holder you can add, etc, which is nice down the road.

I have the one from Gander but saw another at Lakeland. It had a foot rest (mine hits my ankles) and a small flip over shade cover. Didn't get the brand but will be the next one for me.

This one looks very nice. My question would be about the padded seat and back. Does it breath well or do you sweat in it during the summer?

I broke a piece on the cabelas and brought I back, 3 years old no receipt . They gave me a new one no questions asked. The wood arm rest is great touch to.

Thank you. I love great customer service

I may have to make a run up to Cabelas tomorrow. That way I can sit in before I buy it. I will be spending many hours in whatever I buy so I need to like it.

Another vote for the XL chair from Cabela's. Have had mine now for almost 3 years and it has held up great. Very comfortable. Make sure you buy the cover for the chair if you get it, to store it in when not in use.

If you're going to the one in Hamburg (and going just for the chair) call first. When I was there last month they didn't have any on the floor.
