Expected More from a Steel Frame
 from New Hampshire USA.,  Feb 1, 2013

Perhaps this was a defect, but I suspect from the construction that the issue is poor planning. The chair consists of four steel pieces held together in the center by one screw each. This then is perched on the orbital 'legs' by means of four pegs that insert into columns attached to the legs. At each point where these pegs attach, the steel frame of the chair is weakened by a drilled hole where all the weight distribution is placed. Any deviance from those four points will cause the steel frame work to buckle under the least amount of stress. In my case, I have been using the chair for only two weeks. Already having a pillow on the head portion of the chair appears to have put far too much strain on the top portion of the chair and the steel frame above the top right peg attachment has literally split away. The chair is now useless unless I find a good welder. I will be looking for warranty replacement, but had to note that for this kind of structural failure after only two weeks has soured my experience already.

Great Lounger
 from AZ,  Feb 13, 2013

I ordered this because I don't have room on the patio for a full size lounger. The assembly was no problem. Getting in and out of it is a bit tricky but I followed the instructions and got the hang ot it (Pull it all the way forward before you sit down). It is very comfortable and gently rocks when there is a breeze.

Thumbs down
 from Henderson, Nevada,  Mar 15, 2013

I have returned this chair on several counts: It arrived without a pillow, and there were odd bits of plastic loose in the box that appeared to come from the orbital pieces; after twenty minutes sifting through the packing material to find all the screws (which had escaped their bag due to a large hole in it) I got a bit of amusement watching the video instructing how it is be put together -- it was so lighthearted while it glossed over the important parts of this chair, which is that not only is it very, very difficult to put together (which was apparently done in order to make it easy to pack) it also lacks good engineering, so that one would need hours of patience to perform the first instruction, and then, once put together, the thing would carve into itself with each use. Also, great pains are taken to disguise the actual width of the lounge area, which is really quite small and narrow. Based on all these things, I returned it and will buy something else from Overstock that is not so ill-made; summers and winters allow patio use here, but not with stuff that is gauged to fall apart..

clever and comfortable
 from Tennessee,  Mar 13, 2013

Initially when opening the package I was concerned that it was a lot smaller than the picture, but after putting it together it was a reasonable size. It still is smaller in person than in the picture on the site, especially the seating area. However, I am 6'4" and the chair is very comfortable for me. You do need to enter and exit the chair as instructed to avoid getting off balance, but once in it I can sleep as well as I do in any lounge chair when I am supposed to be reading!
