People right across the UK have been soaking up the spring sunshine sat in their back gardens during lockdown, but now the characteristic Manc weather’s put a bit of damper on things.

It’s been hard to believe how much warm weather the UK’s been treated to recently, isn’t it?

Well, that is until the rain arrived this week and felt like it never left.

With the end of lockdown still uncertain and the prospect of social distancing continuing well into the future, it looks as though we’ll be spending time in the garden come rain or shine over these next few months. With that in mind, we’ve found the perfect lounge chair on Amazon that’s sure to not let the weather ‘rain on your parade’.

Yes, it’s originally meant for relaxing in the summer sunshine, but this is Manchester – who says it can’t be used as a brolly to cover you from the rain instead?

It’s a multi-purpose product. It just probably wasn’t designed with multiple purposes in mind.

The Sun Lounger Hammock Bed/Chair by Ventanara has a 100% waterproof polyester canopy, is designed to “let your holiday come to your home” and claims to offer “pure relaxation”.

According to the product description, the chair has an integrated head cushion to increase comfort, a parasol on top which is adjustable and can be altered according to sunlight / individual preference, and benefits from the “simple but elegant design of a massage table”, which looks striking in all garden spaces.

It’s available in two neutral colours – beige and taupe.

Whilst the bed is described as being “fully weatherproof” with a “durable, rust-resistant steel frame”, it is advised that it should be covered / stored away for the best protection during severe and adverse weather conditions as any long-lasting exposure to moisture and dirt may hinder peak performance.

The seat pad can also be easily taken off the frame and washed by hand.

It’s retailing on Amazon at £220 + postage/packaging and whilst that does sound like a big sum of money to be parting with, there’s a good number of recent positive 5* reviews from satisfied customers, so it’s probably best to have a read of a few of those to help make you’re mind up.

One happy customer said: “Absolutely amazing, beautiful and robust! Best of all it’s soooooo comfy”.

Another said: “It took about an hour to put together, not difficult. It looks great and is really comfortable – very pleased”.

It also comes with a three-year guarantee.
