I’m not sure who has had more fun with this inflatable lounge chair, if my husband or our son. All I know is that they both love it, and that I love the giggles it produces out of our adventurous child. This lounge chair is easy to inflate if you know what you are doing, so reading is fundamental when it comes to inflating it. Unlike popular believe you don’t just run around until its completely full, instead you gather small gusts of wind as you go until its full. But you can also use an electric pump to fill up the lounge. My husband did it with the gathering of the air a couple of times outside, but for the video that is attached to our review he decided to try an electric air pump and it worked perfectly well.
The inflatable lounge comes with a mini canopy that can be attached to the chair, also has pockets at each side (one is a mesh pocket), a waterproof pouch that can be worn around the waist if wanted that even has a convenient bottle opener, a storage bag for the lounger, and a carrying bag. When deflated it it folds down making it compact, and very easy to carry. It is lightweight, and convenient. Inflated the dimensions of the chair are about 72 x 32 x 20 inches, we have had it inflated for about four hours without any issues. It is made out of Polyester, and it is very resistant. My husband is a husky guy, and has no issues sitting or lounging on it which surprised us both as we had seen similar loungers that would lose its air even before the whole weight of a person was really on it. So, if inflated the right way, this iLounge inflatable lounger will have no issues with a 250 pounds person on it (add another 39 pounds of an impatient child).
The first time my husband attempted to fill it up, he was successful at it. He got some gusts of winds, quickly folded it and snapped it together. He was so excited that he quickly placed the lounge on the grass without paying attention that the pockets and writings on the lounge were upside down. As soon as he sat on it, it looked like he had been eaten by a mint color monster, he disappeared into the lounge. But it did not end there, as he was attempting to come out of it, a noise caught our attention. The noise was all the air coming out of the lounge. It was quite amusing to see. Luckily he figured right away that he had set it upside down. He tried a second time, and bingo! He was able to sit on it without any issues, he was able to get out of it without the lounge losing any air. In the other hand, our son loves the lounger as it reminds him of a bouncy house. He does not jump on it, but he wiggles himself around it which produces plenty of giggles. It is amazingly comfortable which was a great and welcomed surprise. We cannot wait to be able to take with us on our next trip to the lake, as it also is capable of floating. We would definitely recommend it. The color was supposed to be turquoise (or teal) but it looks more mint but it does not change how cool the lounge is, or how much fun we seem to have when its around.
