This was my first piece of furniture bought on overstock.com. It was also my first piece for my living room set after having sold off all my furniture after a major move. As I didn't want to go out and buy a furniture set right away, I got this bad boy. And too be honest, it's pretty comfortable.It's not as heavy as people have said. I'm not a big guy, and am able to flip this thing pretty well.Do note a few things:1.) You will need to rotate this thing around depending on how you want to sit. If you want to use it like a chair, it has to be positioned with the zipper vertical, and to your back2.) If you want to just lounge in it, then the zipper faces to the floor.3.) I felt warm in this. While you can lie in this thing for a couple of hours...i had to get up to "cool off". It could just be me.4.) Buy the ottoman if u don't have one. At first I was like, I don't need this. But over a course of a week or two, I was happy i had the ottoman to put my legs on.5.) If you want to lounge and watch tv...a pillow may be helpful. But i think any old pillow will do considering...no need to buy on overstock.I'm happy with my purchase from overstock, and went on to buy something else also (which i'm happy with also). While the price may seem a bit high for what essentially is cross between a bean bag and a chair, looking around locally, I just couldn't find anything I liked. And for immediate usage...this was great.So far -- this is the only piece of sitting furniture in my living room. My girlfriend can probably fit in it also (she's tiny). I'm happy with my purchase. Eventually i'll get to buying a couch, but I can see myself using this thing for lounging around or reading a book or watching tv.I recommend it!!
