Blue Ridge Chair Works Outer Banks Chair

This beast is made in the U.S. from kiln-dried ash – like that other American classic, the Louisville Slugger. The Outer Banks is a four-position recliner designed for long, thirsty days on the shore, and it offers sturdy storage for two drinks (or one, plus your sunglasses). The chair is built to last but folds up bigger than the rest; it took up most of a Honda Fit's trunk. Buy it if your Suburban is destined for the off-road beach. [$178; blueridgechair.com]
