What this is about
This Mac Sports Diamond Rocker Chair looks like a club chair, but it folds differently from most of its competitors. The picture below shows what you get when it is folded. So it remains large in two dimensions, but it is thin.
The chair is generously padded and this is typical for club camping chairs. There is even a headrest pillow on the top as well as you realize from the picture below. But note that will headrest will serve the purpose only for relatively short users.
The Mac Sports brand has been developing several different types of rocking designs, you can see one completely different in their MacSports MacRocker Outdoor Foldable Rocking Chair.
But here you have something different, and as of the moment of writing this text, this is the only club-type chair known to me that is also a rocking chair.
There is a long U-shaped bar on the ground and the rocking is due to flexibility on the front part. The backrest swings backward and forward but the base does not move and it remains in place.
This is a patented springs-less technology that provides a smooth and effortless rocking motion.
In the picture above you can see a red locking button on the side, this you use when it is time to fold the chair.
I would say that the most important detail here is that rocking works on any surface. This is not so with classic rocking chairs that need a solid ground or floor.
This chair can be used even on sand as in the picture below, and its rocking will work.
The frame is a powder-coated heavy duty steel frame. The mentioned ground bar is such that this is a floor-friendly design and you can use it safely even in a floored family camping tent.
The fabric is a polyester, and inside there is some padding but there is no information about it.
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, the chair supports the weight of up to 225 lb (102 kg). This is quite modest so check in my list of best rocking camping chairs if you need more for a heavy user.
Regarding the dimensions, they are really good and the seat is wide, see the numbers in the picture below. Note that the seat is a bit low, you have 15 inches (38 cm) from the ground.
Regarding the weight, the chair is on the heavy side. You have already seen its packed size and you realize it is quite bulky. All in all, this is a chair for places with a car access, not something to carry long distances.
Regarding the price, in my view it is fair for what you have here.
- Weight: 14.5 lb (6.6 kg).
- Capacity: 225 lb (102 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 31.1 x 31.9 x 36.3 in (79 x 81 x 92 cm).
- Folded dimensions: 33.5 x 32.3 x 5.1 in (85 x 82 x 13 cm).
- Seat height: 15 in (38 cm).
- Frame: steel.

User Review( votes)
So this Mac Sports RF904DR-100 Diamond Rocker Chair is unique on the market with its patented rocking design. It is easy to fold and unfold, there is no assembly of any kind. You can use it anywhere and this should be understood literally. But it is indeed bulky when packed and a bit heavy.
