  1. Amber Wilson

    Good not great
    We bought 2 of these and one of them works fine but the other won’t hold its position and collapses backwards. Unfortunately we bought the chairs and am using them for the first time now after the time period to return. Would definitely try these out immediately in case it’s defective.

  2. PW

    Best for this price.
    Very comfortable and has a low weight.

  3. MWhitey

    works and look great
    Its a beach chair what else can i say. BUT metal frame holds water, even after you shake it. Its rusting. Not sure how long it will last. So far its about to be my second year.

  4. Steve S.

    Nice beach chairs
    chairs are comfortable, a little cumbersome to carry even with back pack straps

  5. JLJS Inc

    Solid construction
    Great chairs, have been my go to for years. Has everything in a beach chair you could ask for. Cooler pouch is a bonus.Rinse with fresh water after using and they shoukd last years.

  9. Alyson

    Best beach chair
    I bought this for my brother for Christmas. He goes to the beach often and mentioned he wanted one (they are everywhere on the beach, LOL). He was so surprised and super happy! It is set up in his living room right now until beach weather. 🙂

  13. Kellie Beam

    A big DISAPPOINTMENT! It lasted 1 season and broke.

  14. Cassie Mulholland

    Great chair
    Super lightweight, reclines to almost fully flat. Nice little cooler pouch for a water or two and snacks. Love the mesh pouch on the back for my towelAnd the attached bottle opener is a nice little addition

  15. AG

    Well made. You get what you pay for!

  16. Nancy

    Great chair
    We bought 2 to go with the 2 we already had. We live in Virginia Beach, so beach going is a must here. Mostly what you see on the beach is Tommy Bahama. Good quality and easy to carry.

  17. Max D

    Nice chair
    Nice chair, feels a bit more « premium » than the other tommy Bahama chair I have because of the wooden armrests. Love the cooled compartment, and the included beer opener, however, it is less comfortable than my other one when fully reclined because of a metal bar that is touching the back.

  18. Dkmama

    Beach chairs
    We love our beach chairs, the back folds all the way down,- to flat.It has a nice hig back. Cooler works great

  19. Kirsten B Ice

    The best beach chairs ever!
    We recently moved to the beach and were in desperate need of beach chairs. These are the absolute best chairs! They fold flat and can be carried as a backpack. They have so many pockets and even a cup holder. My favorite feature is how they lay in so many different positions so if I want to take a little nap I’m not falling over. We seriously love these!!

  20. Ray

    Hopefully it holds up
    I purchased based on a Wirecutter recommendation, while they can be hit or miss, this chair (or a similar variant) seems to pop up on most beach chair recommendation lists. My first impressions aren’t great but we’ll see how it holds up.Positives: Low to the ground (personal preference), wood arms feel sturdy and more classy than plastic, lightweight, lots of features/pockets, and ability to fully recline flat.Negatives: Backpack straps look like they were made for kids and I had to fully extend the straps to put it on (6’1 190lbs so YMMV). Hard to remove stickers on the metal bars (made in China, cancer in Cali, barcode, etc.). I’m well under the weight limit of 250 but the creaks and groans it makes when I sit down don’t inspire confidence. Overall fit and finish are questionable, there are a few stickers that appear to be either inspection or part number that were sewn over, many loose threads.Summary: Considering the price I had higher expectations but we’ll have to see how it holds up. Would give another star if the backpack straps weren’t so absurdly small.

  21. Julia

    Great Chair
    Just received the chair and haven’t used it yet. I took it out of the box and it seems to be durable. I like that there are different reclining options.

  22. annon

    Comfortable chair
    We bought two of these and really like them. They’re light and easy to carry. I like all the pockets, cup, and phone holder.

  23. Chelsea B.

    LOVE this chair
    These are the best chairs so far! light weight easy to use love all the pockets! one seam in one pocket seems to have possibly been missed by the machine but otherwise best beach chair I’ve ever had!

  24. Bobbie

    Best beach chair!!
    The coolest chair! I bought it for my boyfriends birthday, but I honestly want to keep it for myself it’s so cool. (I’m still gonna give it to him)It has two zipper pouches. One on the back of the chair and one on the arm. It even came with a bottle opener which will be awesome. And you can recline it all the way back and lay down. And the pillow is great.

    beach luxary
    This was given as a gift. it has been used at 3 family gatherings so far & 2 beach outings. My niece raves about the lightness to carry the chair. She loves the insulation for food or drinks. Her other Chair didn’t have this feature. She loves the bottle opener & condenscing of the cup holder & packet to hold little items.
