Nothing beats just kicking it back on a reclining beach chair with a footrest on a hot Summer day. Through kicking your feet off the ground under a nice umbrella in the shade, you’re set for the afternoon and nothing could possibly get in the way of your leisure. When you pick the wrong chair for the job; however, a relaxing day on the beach can turn into a giant pain in the rear as your legs’ circulation gets cut off and you get itchy from an irritating surface. With that in mind, I scoured the net and found what I believe to be the best beach chair for our purposes. It comes with a few promising features and has left a long trail of happy customers in its wake.

Sport-Brella Recliner Chair Overview

A reclining beach chair with a footrest built into to unit, the Sport-Brella Recliner Chair offers a place to kick back without any of the annoying disturbances found in some lower-quality products of its type. Unlike the vast majority of beach chairs, it also comes with a built-in beach umbrella as well as a couple of cup holders, ensuring you have everything you need all jam packed into one single unit.

Sport-Brella Recliner Chair Features

An all-in-one unit, the beach chair in question seems to be marketed specifically toward those who would rather not spend all day searching around for a wide variety of different products just to make it out to the beach. The all-in-one factor is easily its best and most sought-after feature.

The built-in umbrella comes with with an undercoating which gives it a solid UPF 50. For the unaware, this means it will do a great job of protecting you from harmful UV rays. The umbrella itself is a bit larger than what you might expect and actually comes with a three-way swivel.

The built-in pocket is advertised as being large enough to hold up to four drinks (cans, specifically) and is insulated so as to keep drinks and food products at a cold temperature despite being out in the sun.


  1. Because it has so many added attachments, you’ll need to spend less time shopping for what you need.
  2. Buying a reclining beach chair and an umbrella of the same quality separately will likely cost much more.
  3. An insulated pocket keeps things cool.


  1. Those already in possession of an umbrella will be paying for equipment they don’t need.
  2. Rather large in size, this won’t simply fit in a backpack.

The Verdict

The Sport-Brella Recliner Chair is comfortable as a standalone chair. What’s more, it comes with a bunch of built-in equipment, essentially bringing everything you need in one package. It’s extremely cost effective, it does it all and you’ll find it quite comfortable. For under sixty dollars, there aren’t a whole lot of people I wouldn’t recommend this relaxing beach chair to.
