From the same family as the Del Mar, the Malibu comes with all the affordable quality of its bigger brother, minus the weight. Again, a combination of rip-stop fabric and steel tube frame ensures you will be sat down in seconds, but its reduced back height makes reclining a little less comfortable than on the Del Mar.

On the other hand, as an all-round chair, the Malibu’s shorter back means a more upright sitting position for use at the dinner table. It is equally at home when used for lounging in the sun thanks to its netted drinks holder and comfortable armrests.
