What type of chair is this?

This camping chair with a canopy takes your basic chair and elevates it. The addition of the adjustable sunshade and extra-wide cupholder means this chair was made for comfort!

This is an ideal product to have if you’re intending to spend any time at the soccer field or the baseball diamond. When the rain starts up in the 7th inning, you can sit contentedly under your wide sunshade while others scramble for the umbrellas in their cars! This chair would also be great for a day at the beach, fishing by the pond, or any other outdoor activity where there’s not a lot of access to shade.

It’s a well-made chair, with a sturdy powder-coated steel frame. Its solid construction and unique sunshade do make this chair a little heavier than most. It weighs in at over 11 lbs, but you might find the added weight offset by the extra features.

Who is this chair for?

Weight-wise, this chair is a bit on the heavier side. That may mean it is not suitable for some older or frailer individuals who cannot reliably lift over 10 lbs. However, this chair’s unique design allows the wearer to sling it over their shoulder for hands-free transportation.

Capacity-wise, this chair may not fit everyone comfortably. It has a lower weight rating at just 250 lbs and is narrow enough that some persons of size may have an uncomfortable seat.

Size-wise, the product is a bit on the large size, weighing more than 11 lbs! When opened fully, this chair measures 37″ L x 24″ W x 58″ H. When the chair is packed up, it measures 6.7″ L x 6.8″ W x 36.5″ H. The canopy is quite wide, extending the full width of the chair to ensure maximum coverage.

Materials and Construction

The sunshade doubles as a carrying case and is made from durable nylon that is waterproof, UV resistant, and designed to withstand repeated use. The seat and backing have generous mesh panels designed to allow for airflow, keeping you comfortably cool.

The frame is constructed from high strength, powder-coated steel frame that is designed to hold up to 250 lbs. The same frame helps lock the moveable sunshade in place, even when there’s a breeze.
