Can anyone recommend a good outside recliner?

First of all, I am a big guy--6'4 and 310 or so. I have gone through several folding so called zero gravity recliners and all have failed in a short time. There are so many out there and price is not really an issue if I can find a good, well built one. Does anyone have first hand experience with an XL recliner that would do the trick?
Thanks in advance,

Try looking at The Sportsman's Guide. I think they have some that are made out of wood & fold up for storage.

We got ours from Frontgate, originally for the house. Much higher quality (and price, $150) than any others I have seen.


I think they had a larger version as well, but I did not see it in my quick look at thier website......

Try Sam's Club. They have an xl recliner, zero gravity, that we have had for three years with no problem. I'm a bit taller and a little lighter, but still test the limits of most chairs. This one has lasted.

Lafuma Futura Clipper XL. (Make sure it's the "XL").

They are pricey, but so worth it. Definitely get what you pay for here.

Amazon has it (link below), but also search around. Around $200-ish.

The Timber Ridge Zero Gravity Recliner from Costco has been really nice for us. I clocked in at 250 lbs and have no problem.

Ask the parts guy at your local rv dealer about a Faulkner XL. My 6.5' 320 lb friend had one that he loved.
