The Kelsyus Original Canopy Chair is a versatile chair that can quickly convert from a regular camping chair to a canopy chair. This comfortable chair is perfect for many uncovered locations and outdoor events like camping, children’s sports games, parades, beaches, and pools. It is even great to use while sitting at the water’s edge waiting for the fish to bite.
This quad chair has many useful features. The chair pulls open and closes with ease. In fact, it can be opened in one motion. Its sturdy steel frame holds up to 250 pounds. The canvas arms on the chair have a built-in cup holder to support beverage cans or bottles. When not in use, the Kelsyus Original Canopy Chair closes compactly into an attached bag that can be conveniently carried like a backpack with its two padded shoulder straps. This makes it easy to transport from your home to the car and to the outdoor destination. This product is available in several colors including blue, green, red, and camouflage print.
This outdoor chair allows you to take your own shade with you. The canopy is long enough to provide sufficient shade to protect your torso and legs from the heat and potential sunburns. The hood shields you from being blinded by the bright sun light. In addition, the waterproof canopy offers protection from light rains and drizzles. For convenience, the canopy has pockets to store keys, a cell phone, or other small items. When not needed, the canopy can be folded down behind the chair.
Many customers online have reported problems with the canopy portion of the Kelsyus Original Canopy Chair. Apparently, after several uses, the plastic roof straps connecting the canopy fall apart. To correct this problem, the manufacturer does offer a better quality canvas replacement for these faulty straps. Hopefully, this issue is corrected in the most recent manufactured chairs. Another negative is that the canopy works best when the sun is directly overhead since it does not provide much shade if the sun is at an angle.
Overall, this product earns a rating of 4 out of 5 on the scale. It is easy to set up, close, and carry. Plus, the canopy does provide ample shade and coverage. As long as the canopy construction has improved, the Kelsyus Original Canopy Chair is a great choice to use outdoors on sunny days.
