Rated 5 out of 5 by GraniteGal Durable and good looking
I've purchased outdoor furniture from many places over the years and what we have purchased from LL Bean's lasts so much longer and really holds its original look. So when I was looking for beach chairs and was dismayed at the high prices at many competitors, I was thrilled to see that Bean's had a good looking chair at a reasonable price. Since receiving the 6 chairs we ordered, we've been thrilled. Comfortable, durable and should really stand the test of time. Another great Bean's purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HammerTime1 Fantastic beach chair
Excellent quality chair for the money! Comfortable, easy to carry and very durable materials. Notice one of the screws were not completely coated so I called LL Bean and they exchanged the chair within a few days. It is always a pleasure dealing with a reputable company!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JBSorTJB Good enough for a lake - avoid salt water beaches.
The design is almost there - better back-packability would be nice along with lighter armrests to reduce the weight. Biggest problem I've found after buying 8 of these chairs over the last 6 years is durability. Steel rivets + aluminum frame + salt from dripping bodies/wet bathing suits = corrosion and failure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanNYMom Used it as a Beach Chair
We used this one on the beach because I wanted more distance between me and the sand, so that when I sit I don't land in the sand! This does the trick. STURDY as all get out. Not too heavy either. But I must say, the way it is constructed it is not convenient to actually get on your shoulders to carry, The straps twist and are not exactly adjustable so it can be hard to get on. I would change this aspect of this chair. But over all it is a good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JudyKos Very Portable and Comfortable chair
I knew when I ordered this chair that it was low to the ground (great for those on-the-lawn concerts) and I was a bit worried about us sixty-something's being able to get out of it. It is not a problem. The sturdy wooden arms and the angle that it sits you make standing up fairly problem free. The chair is sturdy but light weight and east to carry. The one thing I would change is to have a better adjustment system for the back angle. The one it has works but is not real ergonomically friendly and can slip after awhile.

Rated 1 out of 5 by IKSBean Uncomfortable
I purchased 2 of these chairs after carefully researching many chairs and I am disappointed because the chairs are uncomfortable, the wooden armrests make them heavy, and one of them arrived broken.

Rated 4 out of 5 by alamedabeangal comfy lightweight chair
I wanted a lightweight comfortable camp chair with a structured seat and good lumbar support for camping. I have lower back problems and can't do camp chairs with saggy seats and backs anymore. I have no problem getting out of it even though it's low to the ground. Plus, it's a chair that I can easily carry to local music, etc. events.The only feature I don't like are the straps that raise and lower the back because they get in the way of resting my arms comfortably on the chair arms. I would have preferred the mechanism for raising and lowering the back was in the chair arms. Otherwise it fits the bill for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Calkk beach chair
The chair is sturdy and comfortable in an upright position. However it does not recline as far back as I anticipated. The back does not come up high enough for comfortable head rest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by camper22 great chair, very comfortable
I had an older model of this chair and I think this one is better except that it only has one cup holder. I like the design of this one better. Easy to carry on your back, lighter weight. It's a bit cumbersome to adjust the back but it's not a big deal. The simple design of the adjustment strap keeps it lightweight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BlossomOH As advertised
My family and I every summer go to a number of outdoor concerts. These concerts or listen to on the side of the hill. For several seasons we've noticed several people have this type of chair. Now after having purchased two for my wife and I my 16-year-old son wants us to buy another. The chair is everything that it is advertised. It is comfortable it is portable it does have a padded back and seed with an armrest in the cupholder. Very sturdy and reliable to sit in, perfect for where were listening to the music. great buy and great customer service!
