Chair-Pak Sun Shade concept

Sitting to watch a ball game or enjoying the sunny beach is great fun but the sun can have a major impact on your enjoyment if too hot or glaring. The Sun Shade concept is really not a new one but this particular concept integrates smoothly with the compact lightweight on the go mentality Chair-Pak customers have grown to appreciate.

The operation is simple, take the 12” diameter Sun Shade out of your Chair-Pak, hold the base and shake it a little and the large 34” x 48” Sun Shade pops out instantly into a nice sturdy adjustable awning. Slip the base into the Shade slit pocket in the top of the backpack, sit and relax for hours. Easily keep the sun rays and even rain off your body as you enjoy the scenery and the game.

To store simply hold the two long ends of the shade with both hands, twist opposite directions 180 degrees with your wrists and it collapses again to a 12” diameter circle to store in your Chair-Pak.  Its that simple and effective.

  22. johan, January 8, 2017

    Would really like this and the quad pak/fpv pak x2.. Also wonder how well this cope with moderate wind like 5-7m/s. will the chair fall over or the shade just flex?

  23. Mark Mark HoweMark HMark HoweoweMarkm, October 30, 2016

    What is the status of the sunshade and the quad insert for the chairpak?

    1. ChairPak, 2016-10-30 19:51:31
      Hi Mark, thanks for the status question. I am perfecting the Sun Shade as we speak with a latest prototype to send to manufacturing who will then develop a sample for approval. This process will take probably take 6 months to finally be available. The FPV Pak add-on is well underway. I have the manufacturer focusing on producing a sample, final costing, packaging and soon I will have updates for all waiting as far as ETA for purchase. Thanks for being a customer and your interest in our add-ons. Les
  24. jan, October 5, 2016

  28. Courtney, September 16, 2016

  29. Roy, September 7, 2016

    Great idea! I currently bring a 10 x 10 ez up canopy with me to rc field. Which is great when spending a long time there. For those days that im only there for a couple hours this would come in handy. Love it.

    Waiting on this and fpv pack to be in production.

    1. ChairPak, 2016-09-09 15:06:41
      thanks for the vote and feedback Roy.

    1. ChairPak, 2016-09-07 19:54:48
      Jason thanks for your support, we are working hard to bring the FPV Pak to reality, it does take time but will be well worth it. Please keep checking back. We will also notify all here on significant updates. Les
  31. John, September 4, 2016

    Love this idea. We get stuck at soccer games all the time and it’s either too hot or it rains. This is one of the best concepts for shade I’ve seen

    1. ChairPak, 2016-09-07 12:56:29
      Excellent feedback John, much appreciated.
  32. Martin van Heusden, August 28, 2016

    1. ChairPak, 2016-08-29 15:23:53
      Thanks for getting a Chair-Pak Martin and for the Sun Shade vote
  33. Chad, August 27, 2016

    Love this feature to combine with the FPV option – I currently carry a beach umbrella I got at Costco so I can do long range flying on the beach, and this shade would save some weight on the walk…. Great development! Will spread the word to get this over 50!

    1. ChairPak, 2016-08-27 22:07:51
      Yes please tell your friends about Chair-Pak and add ons to help increase the numbers, we cant wait to supply the sun shade to you and all our customers.

    Ill doubledip I want it!!!!!

  38. Alex Lau, August 11, 2016

    I am very interested in this add on, even I am from Australia, would love to buy one of this with the chair, since the postage for the chair is already USD 79, I am hoping to buy the sunshade and the chair together to save some postages.

    1. ChairPak, 2016-08-11 15:22:46
      Thanks for the interest in Chair-Pak and the SunShade addon Alex. We will notify you when we get into production with it. Please let friends and family know so we can hit 50 followers.
  39. Toby Adams, July 24, 2016

    just ordered my chair-pak but am gonna need this as well……NEED for FPV races!!!!!!

  40. Mark Howe, July 24, 2016

    Took my Chair-Pak on it’s first road trip. 🙂
    Went to see “Dead & Company” play at the Gorge amphitheater in George, WA. on Saturday. One of the requirements for bringing chairs into the amphitheaters grassy seating area was that the bottom of the seat could be no more then 9″ off the ground. Not a problem for the Chair-Pak with its’ adjustable seat strap! Now, if only we could get 17 more people to sign up for the sun shade. I REALLY could have used it. FYI, the show was unbelievable!

    1. ChairPak, 2016-07-25 12:16:51
      Hi Mark, wow what a great testimonial for Chair-Pak and a great use case. Thank you very much. Les
  41. Tara Sloan, July 23, 2016

  43. Andrew Tuck, July 13, 2016

    1. ChairPak, 2016-07-13 22:29:31
      Wow thanks for the great feedback Andrew we very much appreciate it. We are working hard to produce the first add-on the FPV Drone Pak for you all. Please keep providing reviews and let your fellow flyers know about us.
  44. Mark Howe, July 7, 2016

    I’ll be needing one of these, too! *****

  45. Ruth Campbell, July 6, 2016

    Just ordered two of your chair-paks today, looking forward to the release of the sun shade! Will it also repel rain?

    1. ChairPak, 2016-07-06 20:25:09
      Hi Ruth thank you very much for your Chair-Pak order today. We will let you know when/if the accessories become available.
  46. kwan Herron, July 4, 2016

  47. Harold Henn, July 3, 2016

    Would definitely like to see this made. It’s the perfect sunshade for the chair-pak

  48. Chad S, July 2, 2016

    Bummer I thought this was already availible

  49. Andrew Tuck, July 2, 2016

    Yes, Please lets get this in motion!!

  50. Ringo Davis, June 29, 2016

    Definitely need this

  51. shiakhansmagic, June 28, 2016

    when will it be available in the uk because postage is to much to the uk like the sun shade as well

  52. tiggy bengal, June 28, 2016

    postage to uk is too expensive otherwise a worthwhile bit of kit especially with the sun shade

  53. trevor king, June 28, 2016

    this is fantastic i want to order a chair-pak black and this shade shipped to or supplied from uk (your postage is outrageously expensive ) probably will wait for it to be available in uk as your postage is nearly as much as the chair-pak
    although others are developing this idea as well will wait for a bit i think but yours does look good and very practical i would use it for my inspire 1 pro when out on my electric mountain bike

    1. ChairPak, 2016-06-28 13:38:10
      Hi Trevor thanks for the vote for Chair-Pak and the Sun Shade. Yes unfortunately international shipping is expensive and we do hope to offer product sales in the future in the UK and other countries.
  54. DusDDustin Boyd, June 27, 2016

    I live in the South and when you’re out in the sun all day having any kind of shade is a must. This would be a must have accessory.

    1. ChairPak, 2016-06-27 18:47:10
      sounds like a great case for Chair-Pak and the sun shade DusDDustin.
  55. Gary, June 27, 2016

    This is a great idea also, especially if the price point is good.

  56. Quadopple, June 24, 2016

    I need this !

  57. Mike Paolini, June 22, 2016

    Is it possible to order a prototype sun shade + chair pak today?

    I like the idea of the chair pak, but the sun shade is mandatory for me living and flying (FPV) in Texas.

    1. ChairPak, 2016-06-22 14:13:04
      Hi Mike, unfortunately prototypes are not built to be used except for internal testing and to get a concept across, so we won't be able to accommodate your request, but thank you for the interest. Chair-Pak on the other hand is not a concept anymore and you may purchase yours today from our store and you can use any umbrella along with Chair-Pak to keep the sun off until the Sun Shade comes out. We will make sure you are notified when available. Please tell a friend, we will go to production once we hit 50 unique visitor votes.
  58. Mike Paolini, June 22, 2016

    I like the idea a lot, more so when combined with the FPV pack.

    1. ChairPak, 2016-06-22 14:09:22
      Thank you for your Sun Shade + FPV Pak vote Mike
  59. Alvin Yeoh, June 22, 2016

    Could it be made waterproof? So in a pinch it could be rain shelter as well.

    1. ChairPak, 2016-06-22 13:45:00
      Hi Alvin, yes the envision of the Sun Shade will be water proof to use during rain showers and help keep the user dry. Thank you for the comment.
  60. Susan, June 20, 2016

    This could work well for plein air painting

    1. ChairPak, 2016-06-20 13:11:26
      Excellent use for the Sun Shade and Chair-Pak Susan. Also I see you just placed an order for Chair-Pak, thank you for your business.
  61. Frank Lee, June 19, 2016

    Perfect for the beach and fishing. Please put me down for one.

  62. Sean Pontzer, June 18, 2016

    Good add-on for the FPV package.

      Prototypes work well together, we hope to make it a reality for you all.
  66. Jason Cole, June 8, 2016


    1. ChairPak, 2016-06-08 10:29:41
      Thanks for the thumbs up Jason.
  67. Anthony Bennett, June 7, 2016

    Alright, please put me down for one of these. Since it’ll work in conjunction with the SolarPak, there’s just no way I could pass up buying one of these too if they became available. Thanks!

    1. ChairPak, 2016-06-07 17:41:59
      Awesome Anthony thank you for all your support. That's 3 for 3 votes for all Chair-Pak add-on concepts. Sure do hope we can make this happen for everyone.
