As one of those anomalies of folk etymology, the term "chaise lounge" is actually an error of American invention. The proper term for the chair is "chaise longue," but Americans have been mispronouncing the word since 1850 so it has become engrained into the culture. Today, both versions are accepted, though the former is by far the more popular. In its simplest description, a chaise lounge is a couch-like seat, (usually) upholstered, but in the shape of an extended chair and with four legs.
In the light weight category are plastic lounges that can be used for patio use. They have frames that require the use of a cushion that is tied onto the frame. Plastic framed lounges are easy to lift and fold but might be a little bulkier than the aluminum variety. If you put them on your patio be sure to take care when a heavy wind blows up. The wind will take any plastic or aluminum chaise lounges and toss them off the patio easily.
