what people say

In addition to being Amazon’s best-selling patio rocking chair, the GCI Outdoor Camping Chair has earned an impressive 4.7-star rating based on hundreds of customer reviews. Since it starts at $87, buyers have also said it’s a “great chair for the price.”

Reviewers called it “amazing” and “perfect” for outdoor activities. With its built-in strap, buyers say this chair is “so easy to transport” to and from campsites, as well as to Little League games where parents can sit comfortably on the sidelines.

One reviewer called it “the perfect camp chair” and shared that the rocking motion is great for “chilling around the fire.”

“So great that I bought three!” said one reviewer, while another added that “everyone who tries this loves it”.

Buyers have said that while this rocking patio chair is comfortable, it sits “slightly lower than most camping chairs.” If you prefer to sit higher off the ground, this may not be the best choice for you.

It also weighs around 10 pounds, so depending on your physical condition and mobility, you might want to opt for a lighter camping chair.

The verdict

If seat height and heavier weight aren’t issues that would deter you from enjoying the GCI Outdoor Camping Chair, you might just want to stock up on a few. Shoppers noted that it was quickly becoming the most coveted seat in the group and even bought several to ensure there was always one available.

It can be found in indigo, green, gray or red, and is an easy way to up your camping game this season.
