There's nothing I like doing better than...nothing. That's right: If I can manage to blow off my job, ignore the news feed, keep any significant others well and truly out of my sight and convince myself that all of those home-improvement projects don't really need to happen anytime soon, well, I'm happy as a clam. (Also happy-making: a plate of clams at the ready for my noshing pleasure.) However, slacking at this level requires a very special lounger, one that you can sink into without any worry of lower back pain or a sore butt. The key to that, in turn, is one that takes pesky gravity out of the picture. Whether you prefer your backyard repast merely recumbent, fully relaxed or damn near comatose, Best Choice's Folding Zero Gravity Outdoor Recliner will send you to heaven, and keep you there. And now, my fellow layabouts, this wonder is over 44% off at Amazon.
How does the Best Choice recliner take gravity out of the picture? With a precisely situated, expertly balanced seat combined with elastic cords that resist sudden see-sawing at the slightest shift of your body weight. So you remain stable while simultaneously experiencing a kind of mellow floating sensation. For many of us, it'll be the most serenely comfy we've felt since our days in the bassinet.
And it gets better: Lest you find yourself baked like a lobster in the shifting sun, there's an adjustable canopy to keep your noggin shaded and a cushioned headrest to help you doze off to dreamland. It's everything you need to make the world go away.
Have I mentioned that it's now just $50? Try not to faint...unless until you've gotten yourself one of these to collapse into.
When inclement weather strikes or the summer finally winds down, the Best Choice Zero Gravity Recliner — available in beige, black, brown, burgundy, light blue, navy and the above-pictured gray — folds up for easy storage, where you can spend the chilly months gazing longingly at it till it's time to return to your patio paradise.
But don't listen to me — I'd spend the summer curled up in a cardboard box if it meant being able to evade my responsibilities in peace — take a cue from the thousands of shoppers who roused themselves long enough to pen a five-star review of this genius invention.
"Buy it!" said one refreshingly succinct shopper. "It is the best folding chair I have ever owned! There is zero assembly, has a great sun shade and nice removable tray.... I love how it reclines, sturdy and comfortable."
"This chair is awesome! It's so comfortable whether you're sitting upright or fully reclined. I love the fact that it has a canopy for shade. It has a cup holder and a place for magazines or cell phone or whatever," related another. "It's perfect! I've even used it to sit and relax while doing work on my laptop outside."
While, personally, I don't condone engaging in any productive tasks whatsoever while enjoying this recliner, hustlers gonna hustle, I guess.
"Most comfortable chair ever made!" said one supine superlative dispenser. "This chair more than lived up to my expectations in comfort. The attached sunshade is a great addition, and the detachable cup and implement holder is a wonderful thing. Due to what appears to be really sturdy construction, the chair when folded is not the lightest to carry but who cares!! It's comfortable. Spent more time relaxing in this chair on my patio since its arrival in June than I have in the past five years!!!"
That's what I'm talking about!
