For example, it should be appreciated that those skilled in the art will, in light of the teachings of the present invention, recognize a multiplicity of alternate and suitable approaches, depending upon the needs of the particular application, to implement the functionality of any given detail described herein, beyond the particular implementation choices in the following embodiments described and shown. That is, there are numerous modifications and variations of the invention that are too numerous to be listed but that all fit within the scope of the invention. Also, singular words should be read as plural and vice versa and masculine as feminine and vice versa, where appropriate, and alternative embodiments do not necessarily imply that the two are mutually exclusive.
  • The present invention will now be described in detail with reference to embodiments thereof as illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
  • Embodiments of the present invention provide portable canopies that shield a user from weather conditions such as, but not limited to, rain, wind, snow, and sun. The preferred embodiment is a lightweight portable mini-dome canopy that easily attaches to any standard lawn chair to protect an individual from sun, rain, snow and other adverse weather conditions.
  • FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of an exemplary portable canopy 100 attached to a standard lawn chair 105, in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. In the present embodiment, portable canopy 100 measures approximately three and one half feet (3½′) high. However, alternate embodiments may be larger or smaller depending factors such as, but not limited to, the intended use and size of the chair to which the canopy is to be attached. In the present embodiment, portable canopy 100 is made of a durable lightweight material that is weatherproof and has a tension rod frame 108 embedded to the fabric lining for easy opening. Side panels 120 made of a weatherproof material extend downward from portable canopy 100 toward the ground to further shelter a user from the elements. Alternate embodiments may not include side panels. In the present embodiment, portable canopy 100 attaches to standard lawn chair 105 by attaching a vertical support 110 to the frame of lawn chair 105 with means such as, but not limited to, hook and loop material, snaps, buckles, clips, etc. Vertical support 110 is a flat rigid element that may be made of various materials such as, but not limited to, plastic or metal. Alternate embodiments may use different means for the vertical support such as, but not limited to, one or more collapsible rods, non-collapsible rods etc. In some embodiments the vertical support may be adjustable, for example, without limitation, a telescoping pole, enabling the user to set the height of the canopy above the chair. In the present embodiment, portable canopy 100 comprises side windows 115 in side panels 120. Side windows 115 may be completely opened, zipped to a screen or closed. Alternate embodiment may not comprise windows or may comprise windows that have various different features, for example, without limitation, windows that do not open and close or windows that do not comprise screens.
