In summer, stores are stocked with myriad cheap folding outdoor chairs, but rarely do they prove reliable, comfortable or long-lasting.

The Director’s Chair, which sells for a pricey $130, folds into its own small messenger bag. pack.pngWhen the chair is set up, the bag converts to a back-of-the-chair storage caddy.

The chair, which weighs 9 pounds but can comfortably hold a 250-pound person, is made of breathable mesh and aluminum and has telescoping legs.
