This fully reclining chair needs to be good at £30, but it is a mixed bag. The footrest and fabric armrests help to make the Blacks Recliner a nice place to sit, yet the quality of fabric and lack of padding down the back support is disappointing. A headrest is attached for a better experience while in full recline, but this chair couldn’t be used as a multi-purpose seat due to its size and weight.

The bottom line is that for the van on tour, a seat is needed that is as comfortable at the table as it is around site, and the Blacks recliner just can’t meet every need.
