Depending on your tolerance for toting a heavy backpack uphill, picnics and hiking may or may not be an ideal combination. Those disinclined to lug chairs, blankets, dining ware, and coolers for comfortable dining, may find themselves instead seated on a damp log, wolfing down an energy bar. For hikers who want their fresh air with French bread, Welcom WearEver created their Deluxe Hi-Back BackPack Chair. Worn as a backpack when folded, it has ample room for a picnic blanket, small cooler, camera, soccer ball, and water bottles. Its durable, 25-millimeter, aluminum frame and 600-denier polyester fabric support up to 250 pounds of equipment. As if the versatility of a backpack chair weren't enough, Welcom WearEver has loaded this hiking essential with numerous amenities. The chair’s hardwood arm rests are great for relaxing elbows while reading a book. A cup holder keeps soda cans safe from ants, passing-by dogs, or sand sprays. A removable headrest pillow adjusts for varying heights, plus offers four reclining positions. The backpack compartment provides 1800 cubic inches of storage space and hangs from the backrest of the chair--so users can store articles while seated. A zipper seals the compartment, preventing items from tumbling out while traveling. Two, adjustable arm straps accommodate different body sizes. The chair seat stands 10-1/2 inches off the ground. Folded, the chair measures 28 by 23-1/2 by 5 inches. This item weighs 11 pounds upon shipping.
Some seasons of our life just naturally go with color and light-heartedness. Summer is one of those times, and it seems fitting, somehow, that some bright and colorful beach chairs would be a central part of that season.
“Bright” is an apt word for Rio, one of the better-known manufacturers for folding outdoor chairs. Just a quick look at the Rio chairs (either in a brick-and-mortar store or at an online retailer) immediately says “summer fun” because of the bright and inviting design of beach chairs. Bright reds and pinks, striking stripes of orange, yellow, red and blue – you can easily understand why a bright beach chair is synonymous to outdoor fun and entertainment.
Rio also offers their Aloha line of beach lounge chairs, described as their “promotionally priced” line of chairs. The actual chairs are somewhat smaller than the top line of Rio chairs, and the patterns for design are fewer; the weight capacity for the chairs runs approximately 20 pounds lighter. But the website assures the potential customer that, while these may be cheap beach chairs, the sturdy, long-lasting chairs are still constructed carefully with folding mechanisms that meet safety standards. Rio also offers a great backpack beach chair, which has built-in shoulder straps for easy portability. Definitely a great option if your hands are going to be full with children or beach equipment.
But Rio doesn’t have a monopoly on bright folding beach chairs. The word “bright” is even included in the product name for the LaChaise Bright Zero Gravity Chair (item# PAC002), which stands out for its bright lime colored mesh fabric of the one-piece seating and back. The design for this chair is a “high boy,” meaning that the seat is a good height off the ground (35 inches) and offers support for the full length of the body. Being a zero gravity chair, the reclining mechanism offers extensive reclining options, even so far as being almost parallel to the ground. The steel frame measures 45 inches in length and provides great support for the bungee cord binding of the mesh fabric. The padded headrest and the easy-to-fold, easy-to-store style make for a great beach chair. Customer reviews are consistently strong for this item. So our conclusion? The LaChaise Bright Zero Gravity Chair may be one of your best choices in a folding beach chair that is comfortable, popular and definitely bright.
But “bright” and “beach chair” don’t have to mean “gaudy.” Brookstone offers some bright beach chairs that are classically elegant. The Cape Cod Folding Beach Chairs (SKU#595660p) offer a solid color fabric seating with a wooden frame (light-weight weather-resistant eucalyptus) that can recline to five positions. The online price for the chair is currently $139.00, and you can select from a dark green or attractive red color for the fabric. The chair folds flat, with a small profile, and weighs only 10 pounds, keeping it quite portable. Weight capacity of the chair is 200 pounds, somewhat lighter than other chairs available.
“Bright” and “beach chair” are a perfect phrase pair for summer seasons. Here’s wishing you and yours a bright and comfortable season!
