Definitly NOT a Lafuma lounger!
Reviewed by Chillin' on the Deck... from West Shokan, NY on Tuesday, May 26, 2009
I hade previously gotten a Lafuma lounger and absolutely loved it. I was looking for another (at an affordable price) so that both my husband and I could enjoy them. This lounger looked great, and the price weas good, so I purchased one. This is definitely NOT a Lafuma zero-gravity lounger! It's extremely heavy, so you wouldn't want to have to carry it farther than absolutely necessary; It has odd locking levers that only seem to operate in the upright position (totally useless anyway); When compared side by side with my Lafuma in the zero-gravity position, the leg lift of the Lafuma was a full 9" higher, and the head was 4" lower than on the Alps Mountaineering lounger... And the wooden arm-rests may look pretty, but are hard, and not weatherproof. Get the Lafuma!
