Chair to be Envied!
on May 31, 2014
My mom and I went to the winery about a month ago and her friend had the version of this chair with only the folding table. We were so very impressed that I came right home and searched until I found it...and then I saw the link to THIS chair - with even MORE bells and whistles and I ordered one right away for both my mom (for Mother's Day) and myself.
The chair is awesome and sturdy and comfy and just as handy as a pocket on a shirt. I love that it has carrying straps so you can strap that sucker to your back if you also have several bags and or coolers to carry. I bought an umbrella to go with it (though I bought a $5 umbrella from 5 Below, instead of the $30 umbrella advertised for it). It is fantastic! I just love the fact it comes with an umbrella holder. I haven't used the attached cooler yet, but I'm sure I will in the near future. All of the pockets and shelves are great for phones, iPads, speakers, food, books, assorted handy items you like to have with you during times of fun and relaxation.
There are exactly THREE things I'd change about the chair to make it perfect. 1.) I'd like the option of different colored fabrics like on the chair with the table only. It comes in a wider variety of fabric styles and if I could have picked something pink and floral, I'd have been all over that. This one only comes with a few color options for the frame. 2.) I'd make the chair a little deeper and less straight up and down. My preference is more of a leaned back, sunken in chair instead of the straight up and down prim and proper angle. It's not uncomfortable, it's just not quite the relaxed feel I prefer. 3.) It would be sheer perfection if there were a pop-up or detachable foot stool available for it. If you could work out those three little details, it would truly be the Cadillac of folding chairs!
Until then though, I'm still the envy of the neighborhood with this version...and I will be giving it a real workout all summer!
