Key features & benefits
- Rocking chair.
- Solid armrests.
- Folding design.
- Reasonable price.
What is in the name
I am using the name as given by the manufacturer. They use the words Zero Gravity in the name of this chair, but this is quite misleading because the so-called zero gravity chairs normally have a footrest and they are reclining.
To realize what I mean, please see this Best Choice Products Oversized Zero Gravity Reclining Lounge Patio Chair from the same brand. The names are very similar but these chairs cannot be more different. So this chair here has none of the two mentioned features.
But this is a rocking chair in the best sense and you realize this from the pictures. You have the usual rocking bars on the ground and some 30-degree motion angle as shown in the picture. Because of this, I have included it in my list of best rocking camping chairs.
You also have solid armrests here, this is necessary with such a design, so it is easy to get in and out. You can see below how they look, and notice also the nice bungee cord that attaches the fabric to the frame.
The backrest is high, you have around 25.5 inches (65 cm) from the seat, and you have a head pillow shown in the picture below. It is not removable but you can flip it on the back when not needed. The size is (L x W) 12 x 7.5 inches (30 x 19 cm) and it is 2 inches (5 cm) thick. Because of this feature, I have added this chair to my list of best chairs with a headrest.
This is a folding chair so this makes it easy to use. It comes ready and you just unfold it in second, there is no assembly. This is one of those that remain large in two dimensions when folded. So this chair is indeed large but it becomes thin, the dimensions are 42 x 24.8 x 7 inches (107 x 63 x 18 cm), see the picture.
There is a locking mechanism that keeps the chair folded, this is useful for transportation, see the picture:
When you unlock it, you open the chair as shown in the picture:
The frame is steel so it looks very strong, the armrests are some sort of plastic, there is no info about this. The fabric is nylon and they claim it is UV resistant. Note that they build it in at least 5 different colors, some are shown here in the text.
As usual with such rocking rails, the rocking feature will not work on a soft ground. But this is a floor-friendly design.
Who is it for
Regarding the packed size & weight, you have already seen how big the chair is when folded. The weight is also substantial, it weighs 17 lb (7.71 kg). So this is not a chair to carry long distances, and you need a car for transportation.
Regarding the capacity, the chair is quite modest. The official weight capacity is 250 lb (113 kg). So if you need something for heavy users, please check my list of chairs for heavy people.
Regarding the size, the chair is quite impressive, you will see the numbers below in specifications. Note also that the seat is high, it is around 20.5 inches (52 cm) above ground. This is good for taller users, and it may be useful for elderly users too, the armrests will also help to get in and out easily.
I use official numbers from the manufacturer, just to know because I have seen some inconsistencies in numbers on Amazon and elsewhere.
Regarding the price, I think it is fair, the right price for the money.
- Weight: 17 lb (7.71 kg).
- Capacity: 250 lb (113 kg).
- Dimensions (W x L x H): 36.5 x 25 x 42 in (93 x 64 x 107 cm).
- Seat size (W x L): 20.5 x 18.5 in (52 x 47 cm).
- Seat height: 20.5 in (52 cm).
- Packed size: 42 x 24.8 x 7 in (107 x 63 x 18 cm).
Rating, pros & cons
