    1. A folding beach chair tricked out with a pocket cooler that'll last you for a few bevs before you have to walk on the hot sand in search of something to quench your thirst.

    Promising review: "Awesome chair that is very comfortable! The center mesh is perfect to help dry the body but is still comfortable to sit in. Material dries fast. Cooler compartment fits sandwiches perfectly and keeps them at whatever temperature you put them in. I'm 6'4 and did not feel like I had to go all the way to the ground to get in. Would recommend this chair to anyone who asks what type of beach chair would you buy again." —Tyler B

    Price: $34.99+ (six colors)

    2. An adjustable Tommy Bahama chair for watching the kids in the water or reclining fully and letting the world melt away as the waves crash.

    Has five adjustable positions, adjustable pillow, upper storage pouch, lower insulated pouch, side pouch with drink holder and cell phone pocket, padded backpack straps, rubber carry handle and folding towel bar. Supports up to 300 lbs.

    Promising review: "I have borderline inappropriate feelings for this chair. It is so comfortable, easy to carry around, and has great utility. I'm so glad I spent the money for this chair. I like to fish from the beach and because the sandbar changes from day to day, the place I want to fish from changes, I was able to easily put this chair on my back with a few cold ones in the insulated pocket and walk with my pole and tackle and a hand to spare. Also, many beach naps were had in this thing, it's just great. It took me a long time to actually order this chair because of the price.... but it's worth it, so glad I sprung for it." —Stan

    Price: $43.90+ (10 patterns)

    3. An XL chair with a side table so you can feel like you're getting table service, even if you can't shell out for that beachside cabana just yet.

    Promising review: "These chairs are so well-made and super durable. I am 6'3" tall and weigh 275 lbs. and most chairs do not do well by me. These chairs really hold up for bigger guys. Most folding chairs seem so flimsy when I sit in them but these so secure and well built. Don't have to worry I'll fall on my Well worth the money spent!!!" —Kindle Customer

    Price: $74.99

    Take a gander at a similar chair with lots more pockets and a 300 lbs. weight capacity.

    Promising review: "I'm able to carry my towel, a few drinks, sunscreen, and a blanket in the storage area. Unfolds easily. Cup holder is epic for cans or holding a cell phone. The head rest I used way more than I thought I would. And the best feature of all is that you can wear it as a backpack and it's not uncomfortable for long walks. Everyone is jealous of it." —SPENCERWASHERE

    Promising review: "I am recovering from a broken ankle and wrist. I needed a lightweight chair that was a standard height for a trip to the beach. This chair was easy to carry onto the beach and getting up from a sitting position was so much easier than low-slung beach chairs. Deluxe chair was perfect size for me at 170 lbs. I just ordered another one." —jan anderson

I wanted chairs that sit low and lay flat so you can lie on your stomach and these work perfectly. It's definitely worth spending a little more than you would on the cheap chairs from the local beach stores--I expect these to last for years." —David Woodard

    Promising review: "Bought this for my dad who is in his late 70s and spends a lot of time at the beach. Lately he is having difficulty getting up out of lower chairs and he just loves this for the beach. He loves the wider width and height that is perfect for him. He also loves the cooler and holders for cups or a magazine. He thinks it seems very well made and will last a long time. Great purchase!" —K. Peters

    Promising review (adult chair): "I saw people at the beach using this, and had to get it. Much easier than an umbrella when it gets windy, and I don't have to carry my chair, and umbrella and poles like I used to do. The fabric is durable and not at all uncomfortable. I like the fact that it's a chair, umbrella, drink holder, and accessory bag all in one. It came with a decent carry bag, is pretty lightweight, and easy to unfold. No problems so far, and the price is good. I am near the beach and go quite often, so it will get plenty of use." —DangerousMission

    Price: $29.34 for adult chair, $24.99 for kid chair, or $58.49+ for baby chair (three colors)

    Has an ergonomic seat for maxiumum comfort, lumbar support, and double straps for easy carrying. Weighs 8.5 lbs. and supports up to 300 lbs.

    Promising review: "We bought two to fold out on the deck of our sailboat and watch the sunset, with mojitos in hand. All I can say is buy it, you will love it! The most comfortable and compact chair with fantastic lower back support and really well-made. When you're done, it takes two seconds to fold up into a small bag about the size of a yoga mat. We have since bought two more for a total of four chairs so we don't have to feel sorry to see friends sitting on pillows. One note to make, these are low-gravity chairs, so if your knees are a bit kaput, you'll need a good mate to help pull you up. This goes for every low-gravity chair in the world." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $59.95 (four colors, also available in a taller version)

    13. A compact folding chair to toss in your backpack or bike basket on those days when you wanna take in the scenery on the way to the beach by hiking or biking there.

    Promising review: "I wanted a chair which I could take to the beach in my bike basket. This is a great chair. The head rest makes the difference, it is amazingly comfortable. We have two and we put them in the bike basket with a beach blanket and just biked to the beach. This chair would be great to keep in the car if you wanted to go to someplace outside spontaneously." —ALPutnam

    Price: $48.90 (three colors)
