Good fit / Bad fit for

ALPS Mountaineering Low Rocker is a typical, standard rocking camp chair with nothing special about it to be honest. It’s not a good fit for backpackers or people who actually need to carry the chair. This type of rocking camp chairs usually go with car camping, caravan, or backyard relaxing.

The chair’s got mesh seats which is good for relaxing in hot weather. Material used in this chair is Pro-Tech Powder-Coated Steel which makes a pretty solid, durable product.

As this product is a low-rocker, it might not be so good for people who have issues with their legs when standing up. The rocking chair’s armrests are not actually perfect for resting your arms but they can be a good way to support you when you try to stand up.

Another important point to mention about this chair is that it does not have a cupholder or an organizer caddy. So, if you are planning to enjoy a bottle of beer or something else while watching a game in your backyard, you need a chair with a cupholder.
