We’ve seen camping chairs with all kinds of features, but the Quik Chair Max Shade is a design seldom seen. Obviously, we’re talking about the built-in, fully adjustable shade awning that will keep you safe and shaded even on the most sweltering of summer days.

Far from a one-trick pony, the Max Shade also includes two mesh cup holders and a reinforced side pocket for your phone, books, frisbee, etc. If you feel like getting some rays, you can fully retract the awning, so it hangs freely out of the way, off of the chair’s back.

The Max Shade is a really cool idea, but in practice, it can come off as more of a novelty piece than anything you’d get too much use out of. I was concerned mainly by the weight limit; there are plenty of chairs that can hold much more weight than the Max Shade.

Criticisms aside, I think that those seeking a folding chair for the beach or festivals will start to see significant returns on their investment. If you’re primarily concerned with sun exposure, the Max Shade is a solid solution.
