Guide: Stay comfortably on the terrace and balcony: a comparison of outdoor beanbags

School pews and church pews have two things in common: Firstly, you can sit on them and secondly, anyone who expects more from life than listening to a sermon on an uncomfortable seat avoids it. The beanbag was created for all of them. Instead of adapting to the morals of the teacher or pastor, they adapt to the buttocks of the sitter.

This is made possible by small styrofoam balls, which move when you sit down and thus create a comfortable position. Logical: This is pleasant both indoors and outdoors, but not every beanbag is suitable for outdoor use. Ideally, this requires weather-resistant materials and suitable covers to protect them when not in use.

The father of all beanbags offers both: the Fatboy. The manufacturer has several models on offer for outdoor use, including its original. Compared to the indoor beanbag, its fabric is protected against wind, sun and moisture and is easier to clean, according to the manufacturer. Fatboy relies on Sunbrella fabric for its outdoor version.

The artificial name is made up of the English Sun (sun) and Umbrella (umbrella) because the material is resistant to both sunlight and water. This is made possible by the fibers made of acrylic. However, if you want to put the Fatboy on the terrace or balcony, you need space: the good one is 140 centimeters (cm) wide and 180 cm long.

Those who prefer the shape of a lounger are better off with the Mokebo Sundowner Outdoor. The beanbag in the shape of a smaller lounger comes with a footrest. Here, too, the balcony or terrace should offer enough space: The beanbag with backrest is 65 cm wide and 100 cm long. The footrest measures another 50 cm in length and 65 cm in width. According to the manufacturer, the outdoor beanbag can be cleaned with a damp cloth. However, it is sensitive to sunlight. You should therefore look for a shady spot for it after use.

Like Fatboy, Big Bertha is one of the better-known brands of beanbags. The British manufacturer has a particularly innovative beanbag chair on offer. If necessary, it can be converted into a lounger because the underside can be folded out. When folded, the outdoor beanbag is an armchair. According to the manufacturer, its material is waterproof and protected against stains. Nevertheless, Big Bertha recommends storing your outdoor beanbag in a dry place away from light when not in use. Big Bertha shouldn't spend the winter on the terrace or balcony. And of course it also needs its space: when unfolded, the deck chair is 160 cm long, 55 cm high on the backrest and 55 cm wide.

The Sitting Point outdoor beanbag Korfu Rock cannot be folded up, but it still makes for comfortable seating on the balcony or patio. A footrest in the same style is sold separately. Compared to the Big Bertha model, the "Korfu Rock" is 65 cm both 10 cm wider and higher and at 100 cm just as long. According to the manufacturer, the outdoor beanbag can be cleaned with a damp cloth. In addition, its case is coated with Teflon. This makes the fabric water and dirt repellent.

The Lazy Bag is very similar to his Fatboy likeness. If you are looking for the classic at a lower price, you will be happy with it. It is made of 100 percent nylon and, according to the manufacturer, is waterproof and suitable for outdoor use. Nice: Its cover is washable because it contains the actual beanbag that holds the small balls. So you can remove the cover without scattering the balls all over the house. With a height of 180 cm and a width of 140 cm, the Lazy Bag mirrors the dimensions of the Fat Boy.
