It's a folding chair. Who needs instructions? Well, this is my first zero gravity chair, so I did! I have balance problems, and slid off the chair when first trying to sit down, leaving me on the floor! So, you need to back up to it and stand on the foot bar, and hold onto both armrests to keep the chair level-because it can tip over. Once I figured that out, yes this chair is very comfy, great if you need to elevate your feet. I weigh 180 and just fit in, so heavier people may want to get the wider chair. Nice design, the wires holding the bungee cords are spot-welded, and the cords are attached so they could be tightened or replaced if needed. I'm short, and like that the headrest can be moved to any height.
