REI Comfort Low Armchair

An awesome, affordable middle-of-the-roader, the steel-tubed Comfort Low is more substantial and comfortable than tinier seats but, at 12 pounds, doesn't weigh in with the wood ones. The adjustable recliner never slipped, and a shoulder strap made towing it over the dunes easy. Even a movable pillow that slides up and down – we were definitely skeptics – proved to be a surefire nap-inducer. [$60; rei.com]
