What this is about
So here you have a new product on the market from this renown brand. As you realize from the name, this is a rocker chair and this is a folding design. This means it needs no assembly, you simply unfold it in a second and it is ready.
The picture below shows it from the side so you can clearly see the size of its rocking rails.
The picture also shows its solid armrests. They are covered with the fabric so that you do not touch the metal, but this is not a true padding. With such solid armrests, it is easy to get in and out of this rocker.
So this all is a single piece and all the elements remain preattached to each other when you fold the chair. Below you can see how it looks when folded and then you can store it in its included carry bag:
As you see, the bottle holder remains in place when you fold the chair. You realize also that this is one of those chairs that remain long in one dimension only when folded. So I have included it in my list of best folding camping chairs.
See some details in this zoomed picture which shows the cup holder and the fabric covering the solid armrests. Observe also the mesh sections for ventilation on the sling.
This is a very stable and strong structure with some cross-poles for extra stability, both on the back and on the front. You can see the back structure in the picture below.
Who is it for
Size-wise, this is a large chair with the overall dimensions (W x D x H) 26 x 35 x 39 in (66 x 89 x 99 cm). Note that the seat alone is (W x D) 23 x 19 inches (58 x 48 cm).
The backrest is high, you have 24.5 inches (62 cm), but this is not a chair with a headrest except for a short person. If this is what you want, check this list with some nice headrest options and rocking features.
Capacity-wise, with the declared 300 lb (136 kg) weight capacity this chair is quite typical and this should be good for the majority of users. But if this is not enough, check this Guide Gear Oversized Rocking Camp Chair.
Weight-wise, this is a bit heavy chair and although portable it is best to be used as a standard camping chair at places with car access.
Note also that it remains long when packed, the size is 45 x 9 x 4 inches (114 x 23 x 10 cm). So you need a car for transportation. But observe that it is quite thin when packed and it will not take much space.
The chair has large mesh sections and I find it suitable for warm climate and summer camping.
The frame which you have seen above is what they call the Pro-Tec powder-coated steel. The fabric is a combination of a comfortable polyester and a nylon mesh center for ventilation.
