I have a pair of Lafuma's and totally agree with you.Having purchased at least 6 (yes, really!) chairs which didn't make the grade, I eventually took the plunge and bought two Lafuma loungers for us last year. I also bought their chair bags and cup holders on a special offer at the time. At last, a decent chair for most occasions - but it was pricey compared to normal "outdoor" chairs. And nice to have the bags which keep them clean and are easy to manage in the MH garage.
Unless you get to the Lafuma shop in France of course - sounds like there are bargains there!!!
Don't buy cheap, that's my advice - it will just be a waste!!!
