Ahh, the beach! The perfect place to relax in the sun, escape the winter chill, and enjoy all the Margaritas and Pina Coladas you can handle. Plus, it's great for kids who want to spend time splashing around in the water and adults who need a bit of down time.

Get me to that beach!

The one downside of the beach: nowhere to sit. Unless you like sand down your pants (we, personally, do not), you have to bring your own seating. That's reason enough to have the best beach chair you can find.

Enter awesome beach chairs…

Beach chairs are a simple, cheap, and comfortable solution for relaxing at the beach—the single most important item of beach gear you will ever own. A bad beach chair will make your back and neck ache, but a great beach chair will make for hours of happy sitting.
