Worst Mistake Ever
I had high hopes for this chair and I trusted the salesman when he said the chair would need a week or so to "settle in comfort. It has been just over 6 weeks and I am completely disappointed. The recliner lever on the right side is extremely hard to operate, causing a permanent sore muscle in my arm. The ratchet action of the backrest and leg position is impossible to operate unless I slam my body back against the back of the chair and hope it moves the ratchet one more notch. The arms of the chair are too narrow and hard, causing my arms to have nerve compaction and numbness unless I use pillows over each of the arms. The leather, after 6 weeks is already showing signs of bagginess and stretching around the foot rest bend. The rocking motion is negligible. It barely has any rocking motion at all. The only thing I like is the swivel function, otherwise the chair is totally uncomfortable. I am short. The back rest pushes my head forward when I am in a straight up sitting position. Don't buy the Harbor Town Reclina-Rocker. It is a complete waste of money. I've gone back to an old recliner that was incredibly comfortable from day-one. Too bad I have nearly worn it out after 8 years. I don't think this Lazy Boy chair will make it to one year without showing horrible signs of wear on the leather.

Harbor Town recliner
I would not recommend this recliner. I've had mine for 1 year. The arms are very hard and uncomfortable, in fact their height doesn't fit my 5'5" height as when I relax and fall off to sleep my arms go to sleep and wake me up. If I think I might "drop off to sleep" I have to stack small pillows under my arms. I would select another recliner next time. You need to sit long enough in a recliner at the store to see if it is really comfortable for your size. What a waste of my money.

Just what we were looking for
We were searching high and low for a rocker/recliner with wooden handles for my mother-in-law when she went into a nursing home. Well, this was the perfect fit! She was so happy with it!
