Taking the lead in our oversized zero gravity chairs list is none other than the Timber Ridge oversize adjustable recliner that we have an ultimate review on the homepage (Best zero gravity chairs & Recliners – The ultimate guide).
Design & Frame
Timber Ridge is well known for their neat and thoughtful innovation, and we were really impressed by the design, concept and comfort level of this oversized unit they produced. Let’s check it out.
At first glance, you can tell that the chair’s construction is definitely robust. The entire frame is made out of thick, sturdy steel tubes with the base nicely spaced to keep the chair is stable and well balanced.
The steel frame is powder coated to strengthen it further. It’s strong enough to handle up to 350 pounds which means it will comfortably support even those with heavyweights.
The armrests are made of wood which is a slight deviation from the usual plastic ones and a good one for that matter as it’s quite durable provided you don’t let it get rained on too much. Plus it does add a nice aesthetic touch to the overall look of the chair.
Padding & Fabric
The cloth material used for the backrest, seat, and headrest is a heavy-duty polyester fabric which is capable of supporting so much weight without ripping.
It’s weatherproof too making it ideal for outdoor activities. With proper care and protection from the elements, this is a chair that can serve you for a long period of time.
The seat is securely attached to the frame by equally strong yet flexible bungee systems which provide additional support to the chair. It perfectly contours to the shape of the body allowing for more reliable support and relaxing experience.
Now the best part that you will absolutely love about this Timber Ridge unit is that it provides a lot more comfortable than what you would get from a standard zero gravity chair.
Reclining & Locking
Another commendable thing is that you can adjust the backrest to any height. It’s not a ratchet or click system with pre-set positions. It’s totally customizable and glides easily to all positions. You can fully recline it to a makeshift bed.
As for the locking mechanism, it’s one of the easiest you will find on the market. There are two small clamps located on the sides which you just turn to lock the position you want into place.
The locks are very sturdy and can withstand sudden movements without reclining further. Even much better, the locking mechanism is completely adjustable, so you are able to lock the chair at any angle.
Size & Weight
The backrest is 28.9 inches high while the seat measures 21.3 inches wide, so it’s wide and spacious enough for larger folks to fit right in without straining.
The entire length is 72 inches long when fully reclined which is about 6 feet and that’s big enough to fully support the entire body of an average tall person without the legs hanging off the end. If you are much taller than that, then your feet may slightly hang over the chair.
The only possible setback is that it falls a little bit on the heavy side weighing around 24 pounds and it’s also somewhat bulky for packing purposes. However, that’s because of the robust construction which understandable since it’s an oversize unit meant for larger and taller folks.
Headrest & Lumbar Support
The entire length of the polyester cover from the seating area to the backrest is fully padded with the headrest featuring a thick layer of padding too.
This is something you don’t see in many similar chairs and it ensures that you feel most comfortable with great support not just on the neck and in the seat alone but also on the back and shoulders. You can remove the headrest if you want to.
The unit comes with a large cup holder that you can attach onto the right side which is a bonus too since it’s not equipped with an accessory tray.
With that said, we can confidently conclude that this Timber Ridge oversize recliner is worth every extra penny. No doubt about that. It’s a large, strong and very functional chair with tons of features. It’s perfect for camping or relaxing on your deck or in your yard.
