Our top choice in this category is yet another Best Choice Products model, the SKY2337 canopy zero gravity chair. Like their SKY904 standard model we’ve reviewed above, here again, Best Choice Products demonstrates great craftsmanship with this outstanding recliner.
This canopy zero gravity chair is one of the best units on the market today that strikes a good balance between quality, functionality, and price. It comes with all the necessary features required to relax outside with your face protected from direct sun rays.
Design & Frame
The chair is built purposely to withstand the harsh outdoor conditions. It has a strong, heavy-duty frame made of steel that’s powder-coated to enhance its durability and prevent rusting.
It’s very sturdy capable of handling up to 250 pounds which makes it ideal for people with average to heavyweight. Plus, it’s equipped with non-skid feet that help keep it stable and safe to use throughout whether leaning forward to backward.
Padding & Fabric
The seat and the backrest consist of a Textilene fabric and as we’ve constantly mentioned here, this is a quality material that can hold up pretty well in virtually all kinds of outdoor conditions.
It features a mesh design with minute spaces in between that allow passage of air hence it’s highly breathable and won’t trap heat or soak up water. You will be able to relax and enjoy the warm sun rays without sweating or getting cooked up in the process.
The fact that the Textilene material is also UV-resistant means that the chair will retain its colour and keep looking new even when used and left outside under sunlight at all times.
Although the mesh doesn’t feature any padded cushions, it’s not all that rigid. It provides a smooth, comfy seat and backrest to keep you completely relaxed.
Furthermore, the double bungee system that holds the mesh fabric and frame together consists of elastic cords that adjust according to your body size when you sit on the chair.
They make the chair feel extra comfortable and supportive, and you can replace them but that’s unlikely to happen since they are heavy-duty cords that can take the stress enforced by the weight of the body.
Reclining & Locking
Reclining this chair won’t also pose any challenge. It’s a smooth system that easily glides from the upright sitting position to the zero gravity position while at the same time elevating your legs.
Thereby you get to comfortably enjoy the weightless, zero-gravity experience which is particularly relaxing.
The chair remains sturdy and stable when in all positions, and the locking mechanism seems quite reliable. It clamps tightly to keep the chair secure in the reclined position.
Size & Weight
As for the weight, it’s not light nor heavy. It weighs 20 pounds which is decent enough to allow you to move around without much straining and it folds down to a compact size making even ideal to travel with.
Are there any drawbacks? Well, we couldn’t find any serious issue worth pointing out. However, it’s important to note that this is a standard-sized chair, so a taller or plus-size person may find it a bit short.
Canopy Sun Shade
Now the best feature and one that makes this Best Choice Products unit the ultimate outdoor choice is the adjustable canopy sitting on top of the headrest.
It’s a fairly large canopy that provides sufficient coverage to your face, neck and a bit of your upper body. Therefore, you will get to relax and enjoy the sun’s heat without your face bearing direct contact.
Due to its ample coverage, it can as serve as nice protection from sand, wind and other elements. You can definitely agree that’s it’s an essential feature to have especially if you are a person that loves outdoor activities a lot and you can remove it whenever you want.
Headrest & Lumbar Support
Apart from that, the chair comes with a detachable headrest or pillow that’s abundantly padded so that you get to sit comfortably with your head and neck well supported.
The headrest is adjustable too. You can slide it down and turn it into a waist pillow or for back support. There’s a strapping to hold into place such it won’t fall or slide further when you adjust it to your preferred position.
If you also love to have a drink or two during your relaxation, then you will be pleased with the accessory tray that comes with this unit. It’s a very convenient, sturdy tray featuring two drink holders and two extra slots for holding a phone and a magazine or book.
All in all, if you are thinking of getting an outdoor zero gravity chair that gives you ample shade from the harmful sun rays while relaxing on the beach, poolside or campsite, then this Best Choice Products unit is certainly a great choice.
