Lafuma CB

Don't feel like lugging a chair with you? Pick this one up anyway. At just 2 pounds, 11 ounces, the CB was a barely noticeable addition to a beach-day haul, so you could easily carry a pair of them. The seat is made of a mildew-resistant, breathable fabric that has a nice stretch. But the powder-coated aluminum frame is 9 inches shorter than the others here, so it's tough to take a snooze in. Still, compared to no chair at all, it's a daymaker. [$35; shoplafuma.com]
