Default Zero Gravity Chairs

I need to buy some new zero gravity chairs to sleep in at comps. I don't want to spend the $$$ again for Lafumas. Does anyone have a recommendation for a less expensive brand?

Costco and/or Sams sells a version around me for about $50. I bought one a few years back and really like it. Had a drink holder in it. I just wish I hadn't left it at a competition .

Try SAMs.

Also, you might want to sit in them as some brands are not as wide as others, and some are just not as comfortable as others.

Look for one of the "big boy" models, they've got a lot more room in them. I bought one at Sports Authority on sale a few years ago, I think that the brand name is "Alpine", it's worked for me.

Be sure to check the weight rating on the tag - some of the cheapies only go up to 200 pounds .

Got my "big boy" one at Bass Pro. I barely sit in it though because everybody else always grabs it first when they come to my site.

Kohl's has a super nice wide model with cushioned inserts and a built in memory foam pillow, 60% off , think they were marked $75.
Cabelas discontinued their name brand model.with nice wooden arms, mine broke, I took it back and they replaced it with a all plastic model.
I see the cabelas link above shows the one with nice wooden arms but the cabelas I went to said they don't carry that one anymore.

The grocery stores in my area will start selling them at a discount between now and when school starts back. Got some last year from Lowes Foods for $30.

I got mine at SAMs and I've had it for 3 years. Great chair.

I think that is the ones we have. I bought them black friday, can't remember what I paid though. We've been happy with them. Mostly just use them when camping and not at contests.

I agree not all ZG chairs are the same, some are much more comfortable than others. Best to check them out in person if you can. I remember liking the one at Bass Pro Shops but not the one sold at Academy. The BPS was $20 more...figures.
