I attend a lot of local events with my family. For outdoor events, bringing chairs and blankets are usually less of a suggestion, more of a requirement if you want to be comfortable and not stand for hours.

I have no complaints when it comes to my portable chairs, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to try one that not only reclines, but has a footrest.
The RORAIMA Reclining Camping Chair includes a detachable headrest, two cup holders and a pocket on the left side that is large enough to hold a tablet and more. The additional cup holder and side pocket are desirable additions that are necessary, even before you realize how necessary they are.
Aside from needing some place to rest my phone as well as a drink, if you're like me you probably have kids who always ask you to hold something for them while they play. That's where the pockets become useful.
I went to the park with this chair so I could photograph it, and before I noticed the pocket on the side my kids did. Their phones were placed in it before they headed to the playground.
Regarding its durability, the RORAIMA Reclining Camping Chair is lightweight and petite. Having quite a few chairs, it's easy to compare this to the others, and one of the more noticeable factors aside from the footrest is the breathable mesh. It's not very sturdy, or as strong as what I'm used to, but I'm guessing that's due to the mesh material. It has a height and weight limit of 6', 200 lbs, which I think is pretty accurate, but on the low end, I think it's best suited for someone over 5' if you would like to use the headrest.
(To demonstrate, I had my 11 year old who is 5'1" sit in the chair)
All things considered, this is a good chair and it comes with a lifetime warranty. If you're considering buying this chair, here are the steps to recline your chair. It's a simple two step process:
Slide the back of the arm rests down.
Slightly lift while pushing the two sides of the headrest back. (The bottom steel on the legs slides up while you do this)
Congrats, you now have a recliner! Just push the back forward, and raise the arm rests to return to the upright position.
I really like my Sport-Brella Versa-Brella All Position Umbrella. I've had one for years since my children play sports and I would have to sit in the hot sun watching practices and games. It fits any chair I choose to use. You can even hook it onto a cooler of other things with poles.
