    We're looking for a pair of lightweight recliners that are "showerproof" enough to be carried externally on our bike rack and don't weigh a tonne please. Any recommendations?

    Try them for comfort first. Me and SWMBO respectively 6'3" and 4'11" can't usually find anything that will suit both of us.
    Make sure they're covered on the rack or they will get filthy.

    Good point. We went to the local Go Outdoors branch and a caravan dealer, decided on Lafuma Cham Elips Padded Recliner and then looked for the best price on the Internet.

    Another vote for the Isabella recliners. Incredibly comfy and featherweight.
    A feature which we particularly liked was clip-on leg support which instantly turns your dining chair into a lounger.

    Sorry mate, but 'lightweight' is just not you. Try this: :)

    We have a Moho dealer near our static site so had a look see in there as they have a good shop, found some Kampa comfort chairs that we liked so then went out checked various places on't t'internet and they were two quid dearer, but with our CC discount they were bang on. On the plus side they are very light @ 5.2 kg and will fit in our locker (y)
    So the deal was done and were sorted. Thanks again for all your suggestions.

    another vote for Isabella but we went for the Odin chair plus leg rest as its easier to sit up properly to a table.
    Tried them at our local outlet but found them cheaper on amazon.

    Yes, those are the chairs and leg supports that we had.

    I too had been looking at recliners and have just taken delivery of one of these which I ordered on the basis of your post. It's expensive but having tried it I count it as one of my better buys.
