What this MacRocker is about
Here you have a folding and rocking chair of a particular type. The term folding implies that there is no assembly, it folds like a book so you open it in seconds when it is needed.
This is one of those that remains large in two dimensions when packed, but it becomes thin so it will fit in narrow spaces. The dimensions in the folded state are 34 x 25 x 5 inches (89 x 64 x 13 cm). The picture below shows how it looks when folded, as you see there are handles on the top to carry it around:
The rocking feature of this chair can be understood from the side view below. As you see you have completely flat bars on the ground. So this is a very specific rocking mechanism, the chair rocks on the platform created by those ground bars.
This chair will rock on any surface, this is not so with classic rockers that have curved rails, they do not rock on a soft surface. This makes the MacRocker chair similar to some models of the GCI brand, see this GCI Outdoor FirePit Rocker Chair to compare. So I have included this chair in my list of best rocking camping chairs.
Other features include solid and padded armrests, a bottle holder on the side and a storage pouch next to it, you can see them here:
This is all a sturdy powder-coated steel frame and I am surprised that the declared capacity is not higher, the chairs looks very strong and stable. The fabric is very durable 600D heavy-duty canvas.
Who is it for
Capacity-wise, the chair is quite modest with its declared capacity of 225 lb (102 kg). So if you are a heavy person, you might want to check this Guide Gear Oversized XXL Rocking Camp Chair with its classic rocking design.
Size-wise, the dimensions are moderate, the seat is 16 inches (41 cm) above the ground and its dimensions are 20 x 15.25 inches (51 x 39 cm). If you need something higher with such a design, check this GCI Outdoor RoadTrip Rocker Chair with the seat that is 19.7 (50 cm) above the ground.
Weight-wise, with its 10 lb (4.5 kg) of weight, I would describe it as lightweight for such a type. The GCI rockers of this type are all heavier, see this GCI Outdoor FirePit Rocker Chair that is the lightest and it weighs 11.9 lb (5.4 kg).
The packed size is already given above, and as usual for this type, it is bulky when packed, but this is normal for such chairs. So this is a camping chair that needs car for transportation.
Rating, pros & cons
