Sumo, who are well known for their modern day bean bag furniture, has a new product that uses air instead of beans as a filler. The Sumo Air is a lounge chair that can easily go from the living room to the beach and even to the pool. Let’s take a closer look.
What is it?
The Sumo Air is an air inflatable lounge that is made of thin nylon material and is available in six different colors. It folds up easily for storage in the included drawstring shoulder bag.
The Sumo Air is lined with plastic so it can even be used in a pool. It has two air tubes that are inflated as you sweep through the air. Once filled, you roll down the top edge of the tubes and secure them with a plastic clip. The lounge is then ready for lounging 🙂 Check out my video below, which does a better job of showing how the Sumo works.

Lessons learned: I squint too much, and I need to get more exercise because running back and forth around my yard wore me out! It didn’t help that it was almost 90 degrees outside when I made this video. 🙂
Does the Sumo Air work as advertised? Yes. But it does take practice and some effort to inflate it and unless you’re swiping it around in a lot of wind (I don’t advise using the Sumo Air in a hurricane or tornado), you probably will not be able to inflate it as much as you would like.
I wasn’t overly impressed with it, but Jeanne wants to take it with us when we go to Sanibel Island, Florida in October. She thinks it might be great for lounging on the beach. If we do bring it along, I’ll be sure and update the review afterwards.
