The GCI Outdoor KickBack Rocker Chair is folding and easy-to-use, equipped with a spring-action rocking design that works on any surface, and it is very affordable.
Key features & benefits
- Easy to use folding design.
- Spring-Action Rocking Technology.
- Quality craftsmanship.
- Very good price.
So as mentioned above, this is a nicely designed folding chair that comes ready to use, and there is no assembly of any kind. It is equipped with a patented rocking system unique to this brand. This is what they call the Spring-Action Rocking Technology. You can see it also in several of their chairs presented here in the site.
This system includes pistons on the back and bars on the ground, see the picture below. So the chair sits on the bars, but it has a pair of front legs just like any other chair.
Because of this, the chair will rock practically everywhere. This is not so with classic rockers that cannot work if the surface is soft.
This is one of those folding chairs that become thin when folded, similar to an umbrella. You can see this in the picture below. It is equipped with a strap so you can carry it attached to a shoulder as shown in the picture.
Note that there is no carry bag here. But there is a strap to tighten it for transport.
Such a packed size is because of its soft armrests shown below. But note that they are really well done and provide great arm support. One comes with a mesh holder for a bottle, and you have a small phone pouch on the other side. This is a Yeti-certified cup holder and it can accommodate Yeti Tumblers of 20 and 30 oz.
The frame is a powder-coated steel alloy, and you realize from the pictures that there are many tubes and support bars. This is a quad-style construction.
The seat and backrest are polyester taffeta. This makes it different from their GCI Outdoor RoadTrip Rocker Chair which has mesh on the backrest and it also has solid armrests. See how it works:
Who is it for
Regarding the size, the numbers are shown below. So the backrest is in the middle range, you have around 21.9 inches (56 cm) from the seat.
The seat is quite wide and deep, you have (W x D) 20.7 x 16.3 inches (53 x 41 cm). Note that is not very high, you have around 17.1 inches (43 cm) on the front. So this is 7 cm lower than their previously mentioned GCI Outdoor RoadTrip Rocker Chair.
Regarding the capacity, I would describe it as modest, the chair is officially for users of up to 250 lb (113 kg). This should be enough for most users.
Regarding the weight, it is moderately heavy with its 10.6 lb (4.8 kg). You have already seen its packed size, so all in all for long distances you need a car.
Regarding the price, it is more than appropriate for such a quality product and from such a renown brand.
- Weight: 10.6 lb (4.8 kg).
- Capacity: 250 lb (113 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H) 27.2 x 32.5 x 31.7 in (69 x 83 x 81 cm).
- Packed size: 34.8 x 7.9 x 4.9 in (88 x 20 x 12 cm).
- Seat height: 17.1 in (43 cm).
- Seat dimensions (W x D): 20.7 x 16.3 in (53 x 41 cm).
