Let’s be honest we all have some outdoor chairs in our arsenal that just aren’t comfortable. Life is too short to sit in an uncomfortable chair, while you’re out trying to have fun. From the tailgate to the campsite you should be able to maximize your fun and enjoyment and it starts with being comfy. The team and GCI Outdoor puts out some of the most comfortable chairs on the market and they just dropped their latest offering: Pod Rocker.
The Pod Rocker has the rocking style technology, that makes these chairs ultra comfy, but incorporates a wider ‘POD’ like feel for the user to sit. The spring action rocking is what makes these chairs so unique. It’s like having a suspension underneath you that allows you to effortlessly rock your way to relaxation.
I’ve been a fan of GCI Outdoor chairs for the last few years, ever since the first time I sat I their original ‘freestyle rocker’. One of the pieces of feedback I passed along to them was that they needed to add a sunshade to their rocking chair lineup to help keep the sun off and protect from sunburns. They made it happen with the Pod Rocker and I was stoked. The SPF sunshade is fully adjustable, so as the sun moves you can adjust the shade to keep it out of your eyes.
When you first get your Pod Rocker you will have the question, why don’t the front legs touch the ground? I thought I was doing something wrong at first, but learned that it is supposed to be this way. This gives you the option to go off road with your Pod Rocker and it better adjusts to terrain that may not be flat. Now you can rock out in the parking lot, or watching the sunset on the top of a mountain.

I love the Pod Rocker for the rocking technology and the adjustable sunshade. The one downside with the Pod Rocker is that I don’t like the arm support. Their offering of the ‘freestyle rocker’ fits my frame better. The Pod Rocker is a huge step up from majority of the tailgating chairs that I’ve tested and the spring action rocking technology is something that you MUST try. Once you try it you will never view other chairs the same.
