The chair is very comfortable to lounge in. The fabric allows for air to flow through and the little pillow at the top is comfortable support for your head. I am 5'10 and my feet do hit the bar in a slightly akward place when I'm fully reclined. Not sure it would be as comfortable for my taller friends out there! The locking clips do not always seem to hold the chair in the reclined position and I find that I slowly slide back up in to a sitting position some times. Not sure if it's because I've squirmed too much or if it just doesn't work well. All in all, I'm happy with this purchase for the price and quality of product.
