Thousands of outdoor lovers descended on Denver last month for the city’s very first Outdoor Retailer show. The Camping Page was there to scout out innovative new products in the camping industry. While there were hundreds of noteworthy gadgets and enough gear to outfit America, we found a few products that really stood out. A new camp rocker from GCI Outdoor was the talk of the exhibition floor — and it promises to take relaxing outdoors to a whole new level.
The GCI Outdoor Pod Rocker: New for 2019
The Pod Rocker from GCI Outdoor may just be the most exciting new camp chair of the year. While GCI Outdoor already has an impressive lineup of outdoor chairs, the Pod Rocker is unique. It features GCI Outdoor’s patented Spring-Action Rocking Technology, allowing for smooth rocking on all types of surfaces, including gravel, sand, and grass. The sling-style seat provides stability and comfort, and the breathable mesh panels keep you cool in the hottest temperatures.
One of the coolest additions to the Pod Rocker is the optional SunShade, an adjustable UPF 50 shade that can collapse flat and rotate from back to front. Throw in the integrated side pockets to hold a beverage and your phone, and you’ve got the perfect lakeside lounge chair or campfire rocking chair.
The Pod Rocker folds into its own carrying bag, and is entirely portable and lightweight for maximum versatility. It’s no wonder Outside Magazine included the Pod Rocker in their round-up of best camping gear from the 2018 Outdoor Retailer show. The GCI Outdoor Pod Rocker retails for $60 and the Pod Rocker with SunShade starts at $70. Both will be available in retail stores soon.
Another Favorite: The GCI Outdoor RoadTrip Rocker
Because one awesome camp chair is never enough, we feel obligated to mention the RoadTrip Rocker, which debuted early this year and is on the market now. It’s a bit more luxurious than the Pod Rocker, with a nice high back and padded arms for maximum comfort. Like the Pod Rocker, the RoadTrip Rocker features the same patented Spring Action Rocking Technology, enabling it to rock out wherever your adventure takes you.
A powder coated steel frame, mesh backrest, and integrated beverage holder round out the offerings, and like all GCI Outdoor products, the RoadTrip Rocker is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The RoadTrip Rocker weighs in at 13.2 pounds and features a unique two-way folding system that allows it to be bagged and carried from campsite, to beach, to tailgate party without breaking a sweat. The RoadTrip Rocker can be found at outdoor stores worldwide, as well as the GCI Outdoor website. It retails for $60.
