Rio Beach Chairs
Backpack Beach Chair with Cooler

Rio beach chairs are unrivaled in both design and quality. They are manufactured by Rio Brands - a company that has been in the business of manufacturing outdoor chairs, umbrellas, carts and more for over 60 years.  And these beach bums have been in the business of taking them to the beach for well, less than 60  years.  Here is why we love this beach chair:

Backpack Rio Beach Chair

The light weight aluminum frame and padded, adjustable straps makes this Rio beach chair easy to carry.  Backpack beach chairs are worn just like a backpack which makes transporting your chair easy.

When you are carrying a cooler full of food and drinks, and a bunch of beach toys, carrying a chair under your arm can be quite difficult. The straps make it easy for you to take your chair anywhere. Just strap it your back and your hands and arms are left free to carry everything else you need to take with you.

An insulated cooler means one less thing to carry. Just put your drinks or food that need to stay cold in the handy cooler on the back of the chair.

The cooler works fine - it's lined and keeps things cool for a couple of hours. We added a bag of ice in a ziplock bag.  There is enough space for a couple of cans, fruit, and a sandwich.

Adjustable Headrest

The headrest is connected to the chair with velcro straps - simply lift the straps  off and adjust the headrest to a comfortable position.  The pillow is removable or can simply be flipped over to the back of the chair. 

Extra Storage Space

Velcro secures the cell phone or iPod in this handy pouch. The pocket keeps your cell phone away from the sand and an extra pocket is there for a wallet, camera or keys. A cup holder on the other side is a fabric pocket to hold a can or water bottle.

Towel Rack

Lift the bar up until it locks into position. Hang your towel on the rack to keep it off the sand or to help it dry.

Reclining Beach Chair

Rio beach chairs have 5 reclining positions - including one that goes completely flat.  It's a great feature making it comfortable to sit up and read or watch kids or to lay back and relax for a nice little rest. Simply grip the front of the arms and lift up and move the back rest to your favorite reclining position. Press the arms down to lock the back.  The ability to recline is a must in the perfect beach chair.

The weight limit for this chair is 240 lbs.

You can clean the chair by hosing it off or use mild soap and water, but never use bleach or laundry detergent. We purchased ours at Amazon here:

These chairs also come in a variety of great colors - my favorite is this baby blue. Style, comfort and beauty! What more could you ask for?
