These chairs come in varying levels of comfort with some making you wonder why you bothered, and others testing the luxury of your lounge room sofa.
So what would you think if you found a chair that was collapsible, weight rated to 150kg, folded down like a standard camp chair and came with a canopy which doubles as its own built-in backpack?

The Original Canopy Chair by Renetto has got you covered (literally) with its innovative camp chair. The unique selling point is its waterproof canopy that provides 100 per cent UV protection utilising 600D heavy polyester fabric.
When you’re ready to go, simply fold the chair, wrap the canopy around the frame using snap-lock buckles, and two shoulder straps will appear. With these straps you can throw the chair on your back leaving your hands free for fishing gear, lunch, or whatever else you need to enjoy a few hours in the great outdoors.

The Original Canopy Chair has a 16mm powder coated steel frame, an oversized seat with wide arm rests and two beverage holders. The canopy has integrated an overhead pocket which is ideal for sunglasses, keys, or your latest copy of 4X4 Australia. Perfect while waiting for the fish to bite.

While the canopy might sound a bit claustrophobic – it isn’t. It slips up and down easily and readily accommodates taller people. And the protection from the sun is ideal for those times when you have little shaded relief. Oodnadatta Track anyone?


  • The canopy acts as a heat reflector and keeps the evening drizzle at bay.
  • It’s an inexpensive and highly practical choice.


WE SAY: Versatile, durable and compact.
