When it comes to buying beach chairs for summer, the first thing you want to look for is their comfort factor. Are they high enough off the ground for you? Can you easily lean back on them?

Next, you want to look at how easy they are to fold up and how light they are to carry. You want to make the experience of lugging them to their setup spots as pain-free as possible. Finally, you want them to be stylish, at least to you. You want to feel joy every time you set them up and spot them from far away.
