Sometimes, keeping it simple is the best way to go. Like umbrellas and bubble wrap, the lawn chair is part of a special group of inventions that barely need any updating.

Lawn Chair USA understands this, and as such, have designed their flagship product, the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair, to be just that–a highly durable, straightforward lawn chair that not only does its job, but does its job well.

Easily foldable, lightweight, and 100% American-made, the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair is more than just an ornamental throwback to the ’50s and ’60s. In fact, it might even be good enough for your next camping trip, or for those picnics on particularly rugged terrain.

That said, it is by no means the perfect lawn chair, and there are definitely a few things we think Lawn Chair USA can improve on. Read our full review for a more detailed look at this iconic lawn chair.

Old-school design with a modern build

Lawn Chair USA’s Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair is definitely more than just a nostalgia-trigger that makes for a good conversation starter at cookouts. No. What it is, is a well-built, versatile lawn chair that also honors its roots.

While it does look like the well-loved classic lawn chairs of your parents’ or grandparents’ time, the similarities end there. The Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair is made with thicker aluminum tubing, more robust nylon bushings, and UV-resistant webbing fit for a world with an ever-thinning ozone layer.

Moreover, the lawn chair’s basic design makes it lightweight and easy to clean.

Its highly durable construction makes the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair, ironically, ideal for places other than your lawn and your local football field, with a few exceptions (which we’ll get into in a bit).

We can definitely see this lawn chair getting a lot of use on camping trips and on beach days. It folds up really flat, so you can just stuff it in your car, or in your trusty beach wagon, and you’re good to go.

While there are more affordable lawn chairs out there with more features, if you’re looking for something that’s no-frills, virtually indestructible, and with a classic design, then Lawn Chair USA’s Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair is worth looking at.

Overall Construction

The Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair’s overall construction is a study in simplicity. There’s nothing fancy about this lawn chair (apart from its retro styling). While Lawn Chair USA pretty much stuck to the classic lawn chair design, this is definitely not a rehash of the original.

It’s not without flaws, but this is definitely an improved version of an old classic that’s fit for modern times.

Durability

As stated in the intro, there are not a lot of things we can pick apart when it comes to the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair’s durability.

Simply put, this chair can take a beating. Made with a rust-resistant aluminum frame with thick rivets and UV-resistant nylon webbing, it fares well in practically any weather, and won’t get too banged up even with extensive use.

While the webbing does stretch quite a bit after some time, it never really sags to a point where you can no longer sit comfortably. Also, if the webbing does fall apart, Lawn Chair USA does offer replacement webbing on their website, and the chair is easy to re-web. Moreover, the chair is easy to clean and store, which ensures its longevity.

Related Reviews

If you’re someone who doesn’t want to be bothered constantly about the state of your outdoor furniture, you can definitely rest easy with this one. And to answer the question at the back of your head, no, you won’t have to worry about your kids or pets “accidentally” breaking it.

As long as you’re not reckless with it, this lawn chair would probably still be completely functional long after it becomes vintage, and another company makes a lawn chair based on the iconic 2022 design.

Usability

While the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair is marketed as a classic lawn chair, it’s sturdy enough to be used in a variety of settings.

Sure, it’s absolutely great for cookouts with your friends, outdoor concerts/sports games, and your kids’ backyard birthday parties; but it also shines in camping trips and seaside days out, no matter the weather (as long as you have a canopy with you and/or a waterproof jacket).

Besides, if the weather does get too harsh, the chair collapses quickly and smoothly (definitely no annoying, creaking sounds) and is very easy to store, so you can always retreat to your car or your tent whenever you please.

Obviously, you don’t have to limit yourself to the scenarios we mentioned above.

Even if you’re a city dweller and you’re not particularly outdoorsy, you can still find many ways to use this lawn chair.

You can use this lawn chair while you’re waiting in line for the release of a new smartphone or gaming system, or if you want to thoroughly enjoy the view of your city from your office or apartment building’s roof deck, or if you’re investigating the comings and goings of a new neighbor (you’d also need a good pair of binoculars for that).

Technically, the possibilities are (kind of) limitless.

Now on to (probably) our only real gripe about this lawn chair.

While sturdy enough for most settings, this lawn chair falls short in the stability department. The tubular design of its legs makes it unstable on even just slightly uneven surfaces. If you’re particularly fidgety, or if you shift your weight a lot, be sure to put it on an even surface before you sit on this chair.

Weight, Capacity, and Comfort

Weighing at a maximum of 4.5 lbs, Lawn Chair USA’s Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair is light enough to be carried manually on short distances without breaking a sweat. This makes it ideal for your home, where you can carry it from your front porch to your backyard on a whim.

When it comes to weight capacity, the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair can accommodate a variety of body types. The Magnum version of the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair can support up to 275 lbs, while the smallest version, the Low Back Beach, can accommodate up to 225 lbs.

While you can probably get away with a few more pounds, you should probably consider other lawn chairs if you’re a bit on the heavy side.

As for comfort, while the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair doesn’t have any sort of padding, the webbing does conform to your shape and break in nicely after a few days’ use, so it’s comfortable enough. The solid plastic armrests are also quite comfortable, and don’t have that irritating plastic smell and texture that you’d find in cheaper plastics.

That said, if comfort is your main priority, there are definitely more ergonomic lawn chairs out there, with padded seats and armrests.

Value

At around $60 to $80, this is probably one of the priciest lawn chairs in the market today (especially with its basic design). You’re paying for something that’s going to last though.

We’re not going to lie, if you’re strapped for cash, and aren’t too finnicky when it comes to your lawn chair’s overall quality, you’re probably better off with some of the more affordable (and sometimes, more feature-packed) lawn chairs out there.

That said, it’s also worth noting that Lawn Chair USA uses better quality materials than most manufacturers, and assembles each of these Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chairs by hand, and the chair’s retro styling does age quite well.

All things considered, if they knocked the price to within $40 to $50 USD, and fixed the chair’s stability issues, then it would make it easier to absorb.

Conclusion

While they’re definitely not cheap, they’re built with better quality materials and attention to detail than other lawn chairs out there, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a better-looking classic lawn chair.

Moreover, the Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair is durable and lightweight enough to be used in a variety of settings, and will hold up well in virtually any weather condition.

If you’re a lover of anything retro and vintage, and if you’re in the market for exceptionally durable lawn chairs that would last you a lifetime, then Lawn Chair USA’s Aluminum Webbed Lawn Chair is definitely worth considering.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions about Lawn Chair USA Aluminum Webbed

What is the difference between a beach chair and a lawn chair?

In truth, there are not a lot of differences between a beach chair and a lawn chair, as both can be used interchangeably. That said, classic beach chairs usually stand only a few inches from the ground, and allow you to recline and keep your legs on the sand. On the other hand, classic lawn chairs stand a couple of feet off the ground.

Can you use camping chairs at the beach?

Technically, you can use any kind of chair at the beach. That said, beach chairs often come with features specifically designed for the beach, such as cup holders, canopies, and coolers, while most camping chairs are a bit more barebones.

How do I choose a beach chair?

When choosing a beach chair, what you should be looking for is comfortability, and additional features. Ideally, you’d want something with the works–coolers, cupholders, canopies, ergonomic padding. Obviously, at the end of the day, it all boils down to which beach chair fulfills your needs and fits your budget.
