FirePit Rocker Review

Getting a group of your friends around a warm fire in the fall is an amazing experience. It's hard to take this experience and make it better, but it can be done. It can be done with the right seating. The group at GCI Outdoor knows a thing or two about some comfortable seating and brought out a chair made for the fire pit. May we introduce you to the FirePit Rocker!


The FirePit Rocker is another rocker based off of their amazing Freestyle Rocker. If you've followed Tailgating Challenge for any length of time you know how fond I am of the Freestyle Rocker and have called it the most comfortable tailgating chair on the market. The FirePit Rocker takes the same rocking technology but lowers the chair to bring you closer to the fire. 


Let's check out some of the FirePit Rockers features: 

  • Folds flat for storage
  • Includes convenient carry handle for easy transport
  • Easy to open, close and carry
  • Powder-coated steel frame
  • Mesh backrest
  • Beverage holder
  • Supports 250 lb (113.6 kg)
  • Open size: 25.6 x 24.4 x 33.1 in (65 x 62 x 84 cm)
  • Seat Height: 14.8 in (37.5 cm)
  • Folded size: 25.6 x 5.5 x 33.1 in (65 x 14 x 84 cm)
  • Unit weight: 11.9 lb (5.4 kg)
  • Limited lifetime warranty

I set the FirePit Rocker up beside the fire pit and then started rocking. The FirePit Rocker does bring you down a few extra inches vs. their classic Freestyle Rocker. The rocking mechanism is the same and it feels great. When done with using the chair you can simply pull up on the handle and it will fold flat for easy storage. 

While I still love how the FirePit Rocker feels, I think it would be ideal for those that are a little bit shorter in height. I can also see if you have issues getting up and down that this lower seat height could cause some challenges. 

Overall, the FirePit Rocker feels great and is awesome around the fire. If you're under 6 feet tall, or like sitting closer to the ground then this is the rocking chair you need in your life. 

We love to see pics of our fans using the line up of GCI Outdoor chairs. Tag us in your pics and let us know if you agree that these are the most comfortable chairs you've sat in!
