Having spent summers on Fire Island since I was a kid, I’ve been through lots of beach chairs. The WearEver Backpack Chair is just about perfect: It’s comfortable, lightweight, easy to adjust, and inexpensive. But wait, there’s more! It boasts a cup holder, pillow headrest, backpack straps and a carry compartment big enough for a towel, books and beach sundries. It’s $33.49 from Amazon.com with free super saver shipping!
And for those of you who really like to stretch out at the beach, the new lounger version is available for just $39.99 at Amazon.
