    The Perfect Beach Chair?

    http://goo.gl/photos/V6wrWmAiZ2EZMGFS9

    - many sitting positions and can be completely flat
    - neck/head/pillow rest
    - folds small enough to fit in a large suitcase
    - two zipped pockets on back -- one insulated for three adult beverages
    - side pocket for mobile phone and "active" adult beverage
    - backpack straps for easy carrying
    - clasps to keep the chair closed when porting

    One con: they're low slung... You need to be an Olympic gymnast to pull yourself out and stick the landing

    we have these.
    when we get out of the chair, we kind of fall to our knees and then help each other up.
    it is how we old folks entertain ourselves

    What they're not showing is their pull behind cooler

    We have had these chairs for years from Costco. They hold up well. The trick is to dig a nice ditch with you feet prior to pulling yourself out

    You can barely see the cooler bags off to the side in one of the photos.

    I've mastered the leaping sit-stand using the chair arms like parallel bars. The Germans were impressed with my mid-air somersault and two foot landing.

    That's me getting up from the low beach chairs...
    Cover your kids eyes, this isn't going to be pretty...lol. Tommy Bahama makes one that sits a little higher but definitely not as convenient to carry around.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Does anyone know if they sell these on the island anywhere? I have a set of these at home and love them. I have been looking for a great set of chairs on the Island and always find ones that wind up breaking. I really would like a set of the Tommy Bahamas to keep at our place and not have to drag them along from the USA.
