New Eureka Reclining Chair

Eureka introduced a new high back recliner chair this year. We tried it at a local outdoor store, thought about it a few days, and went back to buy it. The store was out of stock, Eureka is out of stock, and every Eureka dealer we've found on the internet seems to be out of stock. Our local camping store has it on order from Eureka and hopes to receive more chairs in July. It seems this new chair is very popular. Below I've attached photos as well as a link to the chair on the Eureka website.

Just bought two of these at target - 37 dollars on clearance and after sitting in store for 15 min I'm pretty impressed!

Movie test later tonight

Construction actually looks solid

I'll be reconsidering lafuma and other brand zero gravity types
Probably a good move. I already shared my mess up with LaFuma and the poly cotton padded model that quickly faded out. It is probably better for an enclosed patio rather than camping.

My parents have an inexpensive zero that is really comfortable. Just as much as the my LF. I do have a comfortable Highback Eureka. The Eurekas are hard to find. My thought is that they don't make too many chairs, rather than there being a proliferation of +$100 chairs being sold.

For those considering chairs, if you need a bigger seat and want head/neck support check out that curvy high-back Eureka. It is nearly 4 feet tall and can handle 300 lbs. if that says anything. You may not be able to find it. Campmor online usually carries it. It is heavy but comfortable. Ah, it was just added to Amazon as well.

also found this:

By the way, here is a review of camp chairs. It may lead someone to a good choice. Note that the top pick is a $37 chair! Hey looking over ratings is fun.

Camping Chair Reviews - OutdoorGearLab

If you get a chance, check out their dream camping gear list. For some of the items they have some really good considerations. Some of the reviews have limited product comparisons but nonetheless they offer some direction.

I would say if you're in the market for a lightweight chair and space is at a premium, these would fit the bill quite nicely, but grabbing a leisurely nap might be a challenge in a couple of those picks. :-)

That said, the wife and I are sold on LaFuma's Zero Gravity line. We bought the protective carrying cases and place them on the bed when we move or store the trailer.

We've enjoyed them for five years, and replacing the elastic cording is the only maintenance we've needed to do.

The reclining eureka variety could potentially be nap material with a foot rest

I almost bought the lafuma (and still may do so if my movie test to tonight goes badly) but got to thinking about the funds I wanna save for a generator and decided to try this out first and see what I think

I had two Eureka zero gravity chairs and the both fell apart. They were comfortable enough but were very heavy and it was a constant battle to keep the nuts and bolts holding the chairs together in place. Finally got rid of them after 2 years of messing with them. We bought two other zero gravity chair imitations..can't remember the brand, I think Walmart or Target..that didn't hold up either. We bit the bullet and bought the genuine Lafuma ZG's and have had no problems...and they are much lighter. I would go with the mesh fabric if you get them, it holds up really well and provides breath-ability to your back and butt for those hot and humid days. For cooler nights, you can always put a blanket on it.

I have a zero gravity chair from Canadian Tire it's extremely comfy and it has a fold out padded foot rest that extends the length of it on the foot rest. It is comfortable with the extension in or out. I. 5'10 by the way..but with the extension it would be just as comfy for someone over 6 ft.

Now not sure if this is a model made for Canadian Tire but cannot imagine you wouldn't find it south of the border.

There is much variety in build quality among the non lafuma off brands

I doubt all are terrible and incapable of 5+ years of use for a 150 lb person and some report such successful use

If this chair proves comfortable I may roll the dice - if it wears
Out prematurely or breaks then I'm off to lafuma perhaps

I think it makes sense to go with the reputable company up front - something to mull about - worst case a 70 dollar failed experiment

This is a very comfortable chair that we purchased from Gander Mountain. It has three adjustable reclining positions, a zippered pocket at the head for storing the case (which doubles as a pillow), and is nice and wide with a cupholder. It's no longer in our local store, but might be available online.

This second chair is from Camping World and is a rocker with mesh seat and bottom. It doesn't need to be on level ground to rock - it uses a piston type devise to get the rocking motion.

We will also be getting a Honda generator. I need that tonneau real bad to hide the generator under.
