Let's face it, If there's one thing that can ruin a good tailgate party or backyard BBQ, it's the weather! So investing in a good quality folding tailgate chair with a canopy can really help you out.
A decent sized canopy will not only help protect you from the rain (or snow!), it also acts as a great sunshield if you've got blazing sun in the parking lot.
Another advantage of a tailgate chair with a canopy is that it doesn't need to cost the earth. The chairs reviewed below don't cost much more than your NFL branded folding tailgate chairs. Some cost less.
In terms of what to look for in a canopy chair, factors to consider include comfort and durability, ample shade and shelter, ease of use and portability, plus a cup holder in the arm rest.
Below, we've reviewed 4 of the best tailgate chairs with a canopy we could find, taking these factors into consideration, so you can make an informed choice on the best chair for your own personal tailgating needs.
The canopy tailgate chairs we review are:
Chair Dimensions: 37" x 24" x 58"

Canopy Features: Adjustable canopy (tilts up or down) with 50+ UPF sun protection
Additional Chair Features: Breathable ergonomic mesh seat, sturdy powder coated steel frame and armrest cup holder

Kelsyus are a big name in quality outdoor gear and they pride themselves on creating outdoor kit that has durability, style and comfort at its heart and this is reflected in the Kelsyus Original Canopy Chair. The chair features a wide seat and supports up to 250 lbs with it's strong, sturdy build. The canopy itself is adjustable up or down and also converts into a carry case, a feature we love. You also get the all important cup holder in the right arm rest.
Overall, the Kelsyus makes a great choice for a tailgate chair with a built in canopy, something reflected in its consistent 5* reviews on Amazon. This is definitely a chair to beat.

The Quik Shade Adjustable Canopy Chair is another popular choice with tailgaters. Made from durable steel and polyester, the chair is waterproof and easy to put up. As well as the adjustable canopy, which you can raise, lower or tilt, this chair comes with 2 built in cup holders, plus a handy pouch on the side of the chair for your program, a book or a stash of snacks. If you're on the taller side, take a look at the Quik Shade Max - it's a very similar canopy chair, but with a slightly higher arched back.

This is removable and has a 360 degree swivel capacity.

The Bravo Sports Four Seasons Courtyard Shade Chair With Canopy is a pretty similar canopy tailgate chair to the Quik Shade Adjustable Canopy Folding Chair, but let's take a look.
Here's what we like about the Bravo Sports Four Seasons Courtyard Shade Chair With Canopy
We love the Kelsyus Original Canopy Chair - it's got everything you need for a quality tailgate chair with a canopy.
Not only does it provide a wider seat than most, it also offers a weight capacity of up to 250 lbs. Most similar chairs are nearer 220 lbs. The chair is also a cinch to put up, with the separate canopy easily extending up over the chair and locking neatly into position. You also have the option to tilt the canopy up or down. The canopy itself is a decent size, providing good protection from sun and light wind and rain, including 50+ UPF sun protection for those times when the parking lot, or backyard, are super sunny and hot.
The chair seat itself is partially made of mesh, which helps with breathability, as well as allowing rain to drain away after a sudden downpour, meaning your butt stays dry! You'll also find the all important cup holder in the right arm rest, with a built in o-ring, providing that extra bit of stability for your beer or soft drink.
And when it's time to pack up, the canopy itself neatly converts into the carry case. We love this feature as it means no grappling around stuffing a chair into a separate carry bag after a few beerios.
If you don't just want to take our word for it though - check out all the 5* reviews on Amazon.
If you want a slightly lower cost chair, we recommend the Quik Shade Adjustable Shade Chair - it's another hugely popular canopy chair with tailgaters and we really don't think you can go wrong with it for the money.
