What is 2-in-1 here
It is best to focus on the picture below to realize the best feature of this chair. So as you see, the rocking rails are removable, and without them you have an outdoor chair with very wide feet that will not sink easily in the case of soft ground.
There are no many outdoor chairs with such a nice feature, you can see it also in this Helinox Chair Two Rocker. There is a horse-shoe shaped locking mechanism for each of the wide feet where they attach to the rocking rails. Because of these features, I have added it to my list of best rocking camping chairs.
This is a folding chair as well, and it is one of those that fold like an umbrella so it becomes a thin tube with the dimensions 40.9 x 9.8 x 8.3 in (104 x 25 x 21 cm). Below you can see how it looks when folded and packed in its included carry bag:
The chair is with solid and padded armrests. It is important to have such armrests because of its rocking design, without this it would be a bit complicated to get in and out.
This chair comes with a lot of it, the pictures below shows what you have. So the side storage system is nicely organized into smaller units, two of them are with Velcro closure and one is zippered, plus one larger to put books. On the back of the backrest, you have a large storage pouch. A cup holder is on the right side.
The frame is a powder-coated steel with multiple joint points with bolts, and particularly interesting is the locking mechanism on the rocking rails, one of these elements is shown below.
Note that they write about curved lumbar area, but this is almost invisible so do not count on this. If you want a chair with such a design better check my list of chairs with lumbar support. Note that they sell two different chairs at the same place on Amazon, so there is some confusion about numbers and about the description, the other chair indeed has an adjustable lumbar support.
The fabric is 600D polyester fabric so this is a quite typical material for such items. There is some padding on the seat.
Who is it for
Size-wise, the chair is large with its dimensions 39.5 x 38 x 24.5 in (100 x 97 x 62 cm). Note that the seat is very high, it is 24 inches (61 cm) above the ground when on the rocking rails.
The backrest offers 24 inches (61 cm) from the seat to the top so this may good enough to have a headrest.
Capacity-wise, I would describe this chair as very good with its official 350 lb (159 kg) capacity. This should work well for most potential users. But if you still need more, please check my list of camping chairs for heavy people.
Weight-wise, in view of its 16 lb (7.3 kg) this is a heavy chair so you would not want to carry it anywhere. On the other hand, it is a bit long when packed, so all in all you need a car for transportation.
- Weight: 16 lb (7.3 kg).
- Capacity: 350 lb (159 kg).
- Dimensions: 39.5 x 38 x 24.5 in (100 x 97 x 62 cm).
- Packed size: 40.9 x 9.8 x 8.3 in (104 x 25 x 21 cm).
- Seat height: 24 in (61 cm).

So as you see, this Coastrail Outdoor Folding Rocking Chair with Detachable Rockers is indeed a versatile 2-in-1 system. So you have a standard folding camping chair when you want to use it that way, but you can attach its rocking rails and it will transform into a pleasant rocker.
With the rocking rails, it allows for some 30 degrees tilt or so, to enjoy in the camp or your garden BBQ. This is a nicely constructed chair and it is not surprising that it is becoming so popular.
