5.0 out of 5 stars As good as Lafuma for a fraction of the price., 1 Aug. 2013
I have a Lafuma RSX recliner with textoline fabric.
It is a fantastic recliner in every way, so people might wonder why I have now purchased two of these similar recliners from Mountain Warehouse....
As the RSX weighs in at well over 10kgs, it just isn't practical for camping & caravanning (just too heavy). I also needed another one for my wife.
I tried these ones out because they had top reviews (see the Mountain Warehouse website for many more), were very low price comparitively AND weigh in at only 7.5 kilos each.
My impressions are as follows:

1) They are very strong & good build quality (you get the impression they are just as unlikely as the Lafuma ones to break or wear out). They do seem very slightly narrower than the Lafumer RSX (although I seem to recall that the RSX is the "roomy" version in the range). There is however plenty of space (and I am not a small person).
2) They are very comfortable indeed, and although they do feel slightly more supportive & firm in comparison with the Lafuma (possibly better for back sufferers), there is no real discernible difference in the level of comfort sitting from one quickly to the other (I know as I tried this)!
3) They are constructed in exactly the same manner. There are locks below the armrests to fix them in any set position.
4) As stated, they are light (and this belies their obvious solidity).

I will use these for camping and leave the Lafuma RSX for the garden.
I just cannot give these less than 5 stars...

NB: I didn't buy on Amazon in the end, but directly from Mountain Warehouse as I had found a 20% code off "everything for the weekend only" there (so I suggest you check there first).
They are also £40 buying direct, so with the code I ended up paying just £64 for 2 (with free delivery).
