I'm not a gadget guy but this is a truly practical travel accessory. It compresses to a little 3 oz ball, so you can toss it in your luggage just in case. Great for unplanned day hikes, fishing trips, or a walk around town. Don't be that guy with a bunch shopping bags with stuff falling out as he tries to cram them into the overhead.
A beach and festival chair that has everything. UPF 50+ adjustable sun shade, aluminum frame for corrosion resistance, and pack straps to get you to the beach with your hands free. The back pocket is even big enough for your towel and favorite book.
