The Best Extra Large Zero Gravity Chairs for Larger Users UK

Extra Large Zero Gravity Chairs in the UK

American buyers have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to XL and oversized zero gravity chairs. The UK market on the other hand has fewer XL chairs to choose from. There are however some very good UK choices available if you look hard enough.

What are the Benefits of buying an Extra Large Zero Gravity Chair?

Timber Ridge Zero Gravity Chair Oversize XL Padded - 350lbsAlthough XL zero gravity chairs are designed for larger users, they can also be a great choice for anyone to use due to their robust high quality design.

Many XL Zero Gravity Chairs are Padded!

Most extra large zero gravity chairs on the market feature a padded seat.

This usually means they are more comfortable than the regular sized Textilene fabric style gravity recliners.

Making them a great choice for longer relaxation periods in the garden.

Better looking and higher in Quality

Padded XL zero gravity chairs are often a lot more stylish when compared to other chairs and in the majority of cases much higher in quality when compared to Textilene zero gravity chairs.

As you can see to the right, the Timber Ridge padded oversized zero gravity chair looks a lot better than most standard sized chairs on the market.

XL zero gravity chairs usually feature a good looking padded two tone design seating area. They are also likely to last longer than standard sized zg chairs due to the higher quality material used and their stronger design.

A Wider and Stronger build!

Extra large zero gravity chairs have wider seats than standard sized gravity recliners and higher weight capacities.

The extra wide seat of XL gravity recliners provides a few extra cm in the seating area making them ideal for larger users or users who simply like more space.

Most extra large zero gravity chairs can hold around 50 Kg more than standard sized zero gravity chairs which can usually hold around 100 Kg max.

Are there any Negatives to Extra Large Zero Gravity Chairs?

The Weight and Portability

Due to the stronger materials and often padded seating area, extra large zero gravity chairs are often heavier than regular sized zero g recliners. Making some options less suitable for portability.

One exception to this is the Lafuma XL zero gravity chairs which are fairly lightweight even for a larger design. Lafuma zero gravity chairs are however more pricey than other zero gravity chairs regardless if you opt for a standard sized or XL variation.

The Price

Some XL zero gravity chairs are more expensive than regular Textilene gravity recliners, however there are some available for a similar price.

Most padded XL zero gravity chairs are around double the price. While this may seem a lot, the extra cost is fairly justified and reasonable due to the higher strength and superior quality.

As you can see to the right, the Lafuma XL zero gravity chairs can be as much as 3 times the price of standard chairs. However, as with the padded XL variations, the quality, strength and the lightweight design of Lafuma chairs make the heavy price tag more justifiable.

It is also worth mentioning the longevity of zero gravity chairs. A more heavy duty padded extra large chair is likely to last a lot longer than a standard sized Textilene chair. This is due to the higher quality of materials and the overall chair strength.
