Good fit / Bad fit for
As a backpacker/bikepacker, I fell in love with this rocking camp chair immediately. It’s so light and the packed size is quite small. It is really comfy and durable, too. However, just like all other lightweight stuff on the market, this rocking chair is also pricey. So, if you are thinking about buying a chair for car camping or music festivals where the weight of the chair is not a big issue, you don’t have to pay this much.
Removable rocking legs turn this rocking camp chair into a regular camp chair. This feature is unique and quite versatile. This makes it possible to use the chair on softer grounds like sand or snow where you can’t normally use a rocking camp chair.
If you are a big fella, unlike me, you are lucky with this chair. It supports up to 320 pounds and it does not have armrests. A problem is, Helinox Chair Two Rocker is a low chair and if you have trouble standing up, this can be an issue for you.
If you are a parent, and need a rocking camp chair to use while your child’s playing soccer or baseball, or you want to bring a chair to a music festival, this camp chair might be overpriced for you as it has features that you probably do not need.
One feature that I like the most when using a rocking chair on my backyard is bottle holders. This one does not have a bottle holder or organizer caddy. If I’m trying to watch a football game in my backyard and can’t put my beer anywhere, that’s a problem for me. If you are looking for a rocking chair to use in your backyard, I’d suggest you read other product reviews on my website.
