Just got the chair a few days ago. When you first get the chair, it is very compressed because they "vacuum" seal it for easier shipping. I must admit, when you first get it out of the box, you will probably be a bit concerned that it is not "filled" enough with foam as I was. But here's the honest and sincere truth. They tell you to wait 7 to 10 days to give the foam the opportunity to fully expand from its compressed nature. After only 2 days, I am very pleased with the amount that the foam has expanded already. I was very surprised at how large this gets to be after you give the foam an opportunity to expand. Listen! I am 6 foot 1 inch tall and 250 pounds. Last night, after only two days, I found the chair supported my weight very well. In the first day or so, not so much, but after 2 days, yes, very well. And like I said, they say, 7 to 10 days for full expansion, so I can only imagine the thing is going to get better from here. It is also more than large enough for me to lay on or sit on, even being 6 feet tall. You can set this right side up for more of a "chair" position or on it's side for more of laying down. The material on the outside is durable. I got the brown one. The chair is made by "comfort research" and I believe they were the first ones to make such a product. At least, that is what they claim. I believe the product is made in the USA as well. Seems durable, definitely comfortable, large. For the money, I believe it's an outstanding value. And obviously, for young children and people of lesser weight, the item is even better. Because at 250 pounds, I sink down in a little bit. But as stated, the more the foam expands, the more support it provides. Do makes sure to turn it over on various sides and push the foam around from time to time to puff it up. You will be surprised when you wake up after the first 24 hours and see how big this thing has gotten! Enjoy! : ) Oh yeah, one more thing. There are various other brands on the net and I was afraid this item may not be as good because it seems substantially less expensive, but turns out it is great! I think I saw this advertised for near $200 on other sites.
