Great gift for my husband.
I bought this chair to replace a 20 year old La Z Boy recliner that my husband completely wore out but was loathe to part with. He really likes the comfort and support this new chair gives him. I got the microfiber fabric because this one was in our target price range and so far it is working well for us.

Husband is 6' 4"
After many trips and many trials we finally decided to go to see the Lazy Boy recliners for 2 main reasons. #1 we wanted to purchase US made and #2 we need to share the recliner and I am 5' 3" and my husband is 6' 4". We found with Joy a "perfect" fit with the Joshua recliner!. The height of the back let my husband relax with his head supported and the firm yet comfy cushions kept me from getting all swallowed up. When I sit in our new recliner my body just issues a joyful sighhh as I relax in comfort! My 50+ body thanks you!

Comfortable for the bad back
I needed to find a comfortable recliner after finding out that I had a herniated disc. I was hesitant in purchasing a recliner bc of the price range. I went to the LaZBoy store and was greeted by a sales lady who had me sit in a number of recliners. I didn't realize why some were larger than others, why some had more padding etc. But she was able to explain this ins/outs of the different types. Once I sat in the Joshua (fabric), I was hooked. It was so comfortable and I couldn't find another chair that came close to this one in comfort. The bonus was that the price was reasonable. I didn't want to spend over a thousand dollars on a chair so this was a good price. I'm able to do computer work using a laptop table and recline without being in pain.
This model may not be for everyone because it all depends on your size, comfort, etc., but I would highly recommend going to one of the stores and trying out all the recliners and sitting on each one for about 5-10min to see if you encounter any discomfort. That is the only way to tell.
When we decided on a chair, we were able to just load it up into the bed of the truck and be on our way. The back of the chair is easy to remove w/o much effort. With two pieces (the base and the back) it can also fit in the back of an SUV without any problems.
Our next purchase will most likely be another recliner and possibly a sectional.
