Do you want to be the talk of the BBQ, softball game, work meeting, or any outdoor gathering? If so you need this chair! I first saw the Freestyle Rocker at the Summer OR show in Denver. I had been walking all day long and I was more than happy to take a seat when it was offered to me. After about 30 seconds in the chair I knew that I needed to test one out.
When the Freestyle Rocker showed up at my house I was very excited. I had a work picnic/meeting the next day and I knew that I was going to need to bring a chair. I felt a little guilty as the first 20 minutes or so of the function were capitalized by people asking questions about the chair and wanting to test it out. To say it was an instant hit would be an understatement.
I next used the chair at my archery elk camp and it became somewhat of a contest to see who was lucky enough to claim it first. The FreeStyle Rocker was again an instant hit. Whether it was my 8 year old daughter or my older camp mates the chair was always in high demand. The only issue I could find was that I only had 1.
I used my Freestyle Rocker for softball tournaments, hunting camps, picnics, and back yard gatherings. I have 2 solid months of testing under this bad boy and it shows little signs of wear and still functions as well as it did the day I took it out of the box. The only critique I have would be that the padding on the arm rests is a bit thin and the cup holder is a bit challenging to use when rocking. The overall function of the chair is perfect and I really feel this is a great addition to any camp or sporting event. You will not regret your purchase of this chair.

What can be done better?
A little thicker padding on the arm rests would be nice. Short of that I do not know what I would try to change. This is a very comfortable chair that I will be getting much use out of.
