What type of the chair is this

This is a rather new chair on the market and it is becoming very popular. The reason is its nice design and a great price. This is a folding chair that collapses to a relatively small size for transportation and storage, see the pictures below.

You need to do a small assembly when you make it ready or take away, but this just implies pulling pins on back legs to release the legs from the rockers. And to assemble you pull legs back and snap them into sockets by pulling on the pins.

The chair comes with its carry bag shown in the picture above, you have a shoulder strap to carry it short distances.

But this is also a rocking chair as you realize from the name. The rocking rails simply fold when you pack the chair. If you use it on a soft ground it will not rock but the rails will prevent any sinking, so this is a good design in any case. I have included it in my list of best rocking camping chairs.

You also have armrests with two integrated cup holders. The armrests are soft and this makes the chair quite unique.


Who is it for

Capacity-wise, the chair supports the weight of up to 300 lb (136 kg), so this is quite typical. Most of the chairs of this type are with such a capacity, you will see some in the comparison table below.

Size-wise, the dimensions of this chair are great. It measures (W x D x H) 32.8 x 38.2 x 38.2 inches (83 x 97 x 97 cm) and the seat is (W x D) 21.8 x 17.8 inches (55 x 45 cm). The back is high but you do not have head support here, if this is what you need please check my text on chairs with headrest.

Note that the seat is not low, the height is 19.3 in (49 cm). You have the  armrests to help when you get in and out.

Weight-wise, the chair is on the heavy side, it weighs 16.23 lb (7.4 kg) so I would not carry it long distances. This is a chair to use at places with a car access.


Materials & construction

The chair is very stable with its X-shaped supports bars which pivot when you fold the chair, you see them in the picture below. This is a strong corrosion-resistant steel construction. The mentioned two pins which you pull out and release the rocking rails to fold the chair are visible in the picture.

The fabric is a strong and durable polyester with PVC coating and the same material is used for the armrests. The two cup holders are mesh. The stitching looks properly done everywhere.


Good and less good features

Here is my short summary:

Thumb up icon.

  • Great price.
  • Great design.
  • Very easy to use.
  • Carry bag.

Thumb down icon for cons.

  • Heavy.

The price & rating

The chair is currently available on Amazon for $41, and this is more than a fair price for what you have here.

There are several reports by Amazon customers and the chair has received an incredibly high average rating of 4.8/5. Now, my rating is quite different but this is because I use several different criteria and I apply them to all chairs presented in the site. The idea is that you compare the rating of different chairs, rather than focusing on the absolute values of the rates.

Ozark Trail Rocking Chair vs Competitors

It may be useful to see how this chair stands when compared with some of its competitors. So I chose two of them, one with headrest and one without it. Note that both have solid armrests and those are rocking chairs. As you see, the Ozark Trail chair is bigger but it is also heavier.
