The BeachMall Big Jumbo Heavy Duty Beach chair isn’t perfect, and it’s not going to be for everyone, but for the right user, it’s an absolutely awesome design. In the sections that follow, we’ll outline everything this chair has to offer and reveal its shortcomings and limitations so you can decide for yourself if you are the user this chair was designed to please. If that sounds good to you, let’s jump right in and see what the Big Jumbo can do!
An Overview of the Big Jumbo Heavy Duty Beach Chair by BeachMall
The BeachMall Big Jumbo Heavy Duty Beach Chair looks like exactly what it is. There’s no mistaking that this is a beach chair. Not your average lawn chair, not a camp chair. This model was designed for sun and sand. Offered in two fun variants of blue and featuring sturdy aluminum legs and wooden arms, it looks like the kind of chair you’d want to spend a sunny afternoon in with a cold drink close at hand and the sand between your toes.
Moving past the basic aesthetic of the chair, here are a few basic stats:
We like most of these numbers. The chair is delightfully lightweight, making carrying it to your setup spot on the beach a simple matter, and the seat width is generous.
Although the standard proviso applies here: If you’re very close to the chair’s maximum supported weight limit, you’ll want to take careful measurements to be certain that the seat is wide enough for you to sit in it comfortably.
The only potential weak spot is the seat height. 18” is generally regarded as the lowest seat height for a big and tall chair. So, if you are on the taller side and suffer from any type of mobility issue, you may find it a challenge to get into and out of the chair. Otherwise, though, these numbers are rock solid.
Adjustability, Comfort, and Extras
Let’s start with comfort because there’s relatively little to talk about on that front. The upholstery is double layered 600 Denier polyester fabric that has been treated to be water-resistant and quick drying. It’s fairly breathable and offers reasonable comfort, but there’s no padding in this chair, so what you see is what you get.
The only enhanced comfort feature on offer is the attached headrest pillow, which isn’t generously padded but is sufficient to get the job done and give you a nice platform if you decide to angle the Big Jumbo Heavy Duty Beach chair by BeachMall back and while away the afternoon listening to the sounds of the surf.
In terms of adjustability, the seatback can be angled through four different settings, which gives you some options in terms of lounging, but note that this species isn’t a lounger, so there’s nowhere to put your feet except on the sand.
That’s not a deal-breaker, nor even a bad thing. The fact that this chair isn’t a lounger is what makes it relatively lightweight and easy to carry. Still, it is important to be mindful of exactly what you’re buying. If you’re specifically in the market for a lounger, then you may want to check out the XL Zero-G Lounger, offered by Ezcheer.
Extras are where the BeachMall Big Jumbo Heavy Duty Aluminum Beach chair really shines. This chair comes with lots of storage and a handy cup holder built into one of the chair arms. You’ll find a zippered storage pouch conveniently located on the crossbar, just under the seat, another hanging off of the chair arm opposite the cup holder, and a third compartment on the back of the seatback, giving you all sorts of options for storing snacks, sunscreen, and any other summertime gear you feel like bringing with you.
No Assembly Required
Most of the beach chairs you can buy on the market today will arrive at your door fully assembled and ready to use, and the Big Jumbo is no exception. Just take it out of the box, unfold it, put it where you want it, and have a seat. That’s all there is to it.

Pros and Cons of BeachMall Big Jumbo Heavy Duty Beach Chair
The only real negative the BeachMall Big Jumbo Heavy Duty Beach chair has is the seat height. It’s a bit on the short side, so if you’re taller or if you have a mobility issue, that may make it a non-starter for you.
Other than that, this is a superb chair offered by a smallish but established brand. It’s built to last and supports a lot of user weight. Best of all, it has tons of storage options, which is ideal for a good beach or other outdoor chairs.
BeachMall Big Jumbo Heavy Duty Beach Chair Review Conclusion
