I just bought two, also. They were on Cabela's bargain site and I ordered one (no choice of size or color) and then ordered an Xtra large on sale also (but not $30 as the first one was.) Turns out I got two XLs even though the second box was marked reg. I did in store pickup so no shipping cost.

I LOVE the chairs. Extremely comfy.

Bobbie,
Does that Xtra large hit the back of your ankles ?
I sat in one at Cabela's and my ankles rested on the pipe and I am only 5'10"
I did not look at the size.

No, it doesn't hit me, but my legs aren't that long- I'm tall in the body and wide! My head doesn't go off the top of the chair. I think it has the measurements on the site, though, and if I remember I'll measure it when I go home tonight.

Bill, I don't have a Cabella's Chair, But got one a few years ago from Dick's sporting goods and it's long enough for me, I am 5'9 basically the same chair and it's long enough for me to lay in without my feet hanging over. So as long as your not super tall, the ex=long Cabella's chair should be fine. Robin

I did not measure but did observe- I wear a 30 inch inseam, and my heels hit the bar on the foot of the recliner if I stretch my legs out straight.

Bill-
We have very similar chairs from REI. I sat in the regular, and it did hit the back of my ankles. I sat in the XL, same issue. I think the only difference in regular and XL is the width. I thought it would bother me, but it really doesn't (BTW, I'm 6' 00")

Correct---- only difference in regular and XL is the width.----> 20" or 24"

I looked at the Cabelas knock-off recliners and they seem to be a quality built chair but much heavier than the original Lafuma zero gravity recliners.

I bought the Cabela sale chair also. $29.99 + $20 shipping. The chair that came was extra large. I am disappointed by two things- it is very heavy (I bought to take on trips and don't want to add additional weight to TV) and it is uncomfortable for me. I am 5ft and the top of the back of the chair bends forward so that my neck is forced at an uncomfortable angle. The cushion included is too thick to compensate. I don't want to pay return shipping, so I am going to try to find a modification when I have time to work with it. Otherwise, the chair is well built and a fair price.

We use those chairs. We also found convenient plastic trays that hook to them and hold drinks, books, etc. Kevin thinks we got them at Cabella's too.
We also purchased laptrays from ShopKo that are made for holding computers while you are sitting in a comfy chair. They work well with these chairs too. We now usually eat on these.

Not a problem for me because I bought them for use at my cabin, not to take along. But that could be a concern. It's also too bad they can't let you order extra large or reg on the sale. I haven't had too many other people try mine so can't comment on what size person they are comfy for. I'm about 5' 8" and they are quite comfy for me.

We have them too...drove all the way to West Virginia one cold, snowy day last winter "Just for something to do" I'm 5'3" and my hubby is 6'1" and we can't say enough about these chairs. We both have taken an afternoon nap in them a coupe times this season so far. It came with a cup holder but don't have plate holders which would be nice.

What I did buy (I think from CampingWorld) are bags/carriers for them. Sure makes carrying them easier and if they have dirt or ash on them from the campground that went undetected, sliding them into the 'bag' keeps the inside of the trailer clean. Easy to carry over the shoulder, even for me. They're made of heavy canvas and were about $15 each I believe.

Anytime someone comes to visit us while camping, we offer up our chairs for them to try and havent had a dissapointed guest yet!

Are they still on-sale? We could use a couple out on our back deck here at home..

OK, I tried my chair again and in the reclining position, with the pillow properly adjusted, I found it very comfortable. I surely would like to find one of those carrying bags though.
Here's my questions, since no instructions came with the chair, how do I get it to recline to the "zero gravity" position? And what are the two levers under the arms for?
