A picture would be useful. Isabella get good reviews from actual users. Not sure about the size aspects. But Isabella are good quality. We are still using Lafuma bought in 2003 but they are heavy.

Have a look at Towsure in Sheffield. They do a Vango (would you believe heated as well?) for less than a ton and rated 145kg.

We have Lafuma chairs and they are a lot lighter than our previous chairs and super comfortable.

Our two Lafumas are steel framed with close weave fabric covering and together the two weigh 16.8kg. For caravanning as payloads decreased we bought two aluminium framed conventional recliners that were non gravity. Together they weighed 9.3kg.which gave a bit more payload to play with. every little bit helps.

One plus in favour of Lafuma is the availability of spare parts.
We have recently bought new plastic "joints" for one of our very old Lafumas - no wear anywhere else so essentially back to new.
They do seem very keen to limit "throw away culture" in both their advertising and the range of spares they carry. Might or might not be something to consider.

The only things we have bought were one set of elastic supports to replace the originals which perished over time. They were bit fiddly to thread through but that's acceptable compared to replacing the whole chair. I think newer ones now just have clips which are easier to fit. Plus a much larger range of chairs now than when we bought ours neigh on 20 years ago, but they are still used regularly.

My only advice is to make sure you sit in the chair that you fancy before purchasing, of all the camping chairs I've looked at, only the lafuma was comfy, I'm currently hoping father Christmas will bring me one.
I find the cheaper chairs seat supports cut into my legs.

Which is exactly why we went for the Lafuma cham'Elips AC chairs. Cannot comment on Isabella as they may be just as good, but we have never bought one. At the time we purchased the two Lafumas for about £200, the equivalent Isabella was a lot more expensive.
