Good fit / Bad fit for

Considering the specs listed above, I would say this rocking camp chair is mainly for car camping or backyard purposes. The weight is almost 12 lb which makes it impossible for backpackers or bikepackers.

The chair supports up to 250 lb, which is reasonable but I did not have the chance to truly test this since I only weigh 130 lb. If you have this specific rocking camp chair model and you want to add your review, feel free to comment below. I’m sure our visitors will thank you for it.

Mainly, this is a fair rocking chair for relaxing that you can use in your picnics, car campings, or just to sit in your backyard.
