Sports Illustrated Swimsuit + Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, which means a weekend full of barbecues, fireworks and (if you're lucky) beach time. Now, at SI Swimsuit, we know a thing or two about the beach. You can seek out inspiration on the suit front at our most recent issue here and here and here. Meanwhile, we wanted to suggest some other gear that will make a sandy day even more enjoyable. So here are five of our favorite seaside products.

Though beach chairs have been around forever, one company decided to make the ultimate one that alleviates common grievances. It was expertly engineered to be comfortable, fold easily and be light enough to carry. Plus, it has a built-in UPF50+ shade that protects you from 98% of the sun’s rays, plus a collapsible drink holder that can adjust to any size bottle. Oh, and did we mention it comes with a dry pack to keep your valuables water and sand-free, and a free towel that attaches to your chair so it won't blow away or fall. Bonus: It comes in 26 colors, so you can find one that is just your style.
