Everything Branded Cooler Chair EB-107291 The Everything Branded Cooler Chair would make the ideal addition to a man cave. It is upholstered with faux leather, features a cupholder in each armrest, and you can order it with custom embroidering on the back of the chair and the front of the cooler. Plus, the insulated compartment comes with a lid that allows it to double as an ottoman. everythingbranded.com

When you go camping or to the beach, or even sometimes just to watch your kid's little league game, there is inevitably a lot of stuff to bring along. You can make your life a bit easier, and your load a bit lighter, with one of these handy cooler chairs. We wanted to make sure to include a variety of different styles so there would be one to suit every need.
While none of these will be as comfortable as a beach lounger that allows you to fully lay out, the Tommy Bahama Beach Backpack, Life is Good Beach, and Rio Gear Ultimate can come awfully close. They all offer multiple recline positions, have an adjustable neck rest, and have dry storage pockets for various items in addition to the insulated cooler compartments.
Though we like all of the above options, if you want to store more than a few drinks, you may need to opt for the Oniva Fusion, which can accommodate more than 20 standard-sized cans in its detachable cooler. Plus, it has a hard table attached to the right armrest that features two hanging shelves, so you can keep a lot of stuff close at hand. Other models that include a hard table are the Timber Ridge Laurel and Kamp Rite Director, making them good for eating meals at a picnic or around a campfire.
If keeping your load as compact and light as possible takes precedence, even at the expense of comfort, you should consider the Portal Stool and Zology Folding Stool. We like the former because it offers a backrest, making it slightly more comfortable, however the latter is lighter and boasts the ability to support heavy users upwards of 300 pounds. Plus, if offers adjustable carrying straps, which the former doesn't.
