GCI Outdoor, creators of portable, durable and comfortable outdoor recreation furniture, is excited to introduce its latest rocking technology for the spring 2022 season. The new ComPack Rocker will feature GCI Outdoor’s all-new Torsion Rocking Technology™ which utilizes a cylindrical design for lightweight rocking. 

“Our engineering  team has been hard at work building out our line of rocking chairs, and to see that work culminate in our proprietary Torsion Rocking Technology™ is really exciting,” said Jeff Polke, co-founder of GCI Outdoor. “We anticipate spring 2022 being an important season for us with new additions across multiple product categories. The uptick in outdoor participation as of late bodes really well for the industry, and we’re excited to keep up the momentum.” 

The lineup for spring 2022 starts with the ComPack Rocker™ ($110) featuring patent-pending Torsion Rocking Technology™ which creates a smooth, relaxing  rock. It’s built with shock cord retention, setting up and breaking down easily and fits into a small and sturdy pouch with a carry strap. The ComPak Rocker ™ also features a mesh backrest to keep users cool, and a padded seat and headrest for added comfort. It is designed to keep in the car or throw in a backpack – making it the perfect chair for every occasion. 

The Freestyle Rocker XL™ ($85) is based on the classic Freestyle Rocker and features a broader and tougher frame. This heavy-duty rocker has a 400 lb weight capacity, and was designed with patented Spring-Action Rocking Technology™, which allows for rocking smoothly on grass, gravel or sand. Outfitted with patented Eazy-Fold™ Technology, the Freestyle Rocker XL is easy to open and close, and also sports a carry handle to make transportation easy. Additional features include a mesh backrest, beverage holder and phone pocket. 

Bring the comfort of the indoors right into the outdoors with the Freestyle Rocker™ with Side Table ($85) and Freestyle Rocker XL™ with Side Table ($95). This rocker is designed with patented Spring-Action Rocking Technology™ for a smooth rock wherever you set up camp or watch the game. The XL comes with a broader seat and backrest, and has a 400 lb weight capacity. The side table has a phone holder and deep cup holders in two different sizes to keep beverages in place while gently rocking. Both chairs also feature a convenient carry handle, mesh backrest and patented Eazy-Fold™ Technology.

Using Legz Up Technology™ which was first introduced as part of the Freeform Zero Gravity Lounger™, the Legz Up Lounger™ ($100) brings comfort and relaxation to the outdoors! With a built-in leg rest, the Legz Up Lounger allows users to switch back and forth seamlessly between legs up or legs down. Stay cool and comfortable when you recline the mesh backrest to one of four positions for an even more relaxing experience. It also includes a head pillow, beverage holder, phone pocket and backpack straps for easy portability.

Perfect for small gatherings in the backyard or campsite, the Slim-Fold Table™ ($120) is ready for a good time. The open size is approximately 24.2 x 54.3 and 26.8” inches tall, allowing the Slim-Fold Table to easily seat up to 4 to 5 people. The design also allows for half of the table to remain folded  when the full space isn’t needed. The light but durable heat-resistant aluminum tabletop can hold up to 125 lb. When it’s time to pack up, the Slim-Fold Table folds up quickly and is easily transported with the included carry handles.

Gather with friends and family around the Slim-Fold Table XL™ ($135). With an open size of approximately 30 x 60.8 and 30 inches tall, this table can easily seat 4 to 6 people, or serve as a large prep station. Keep half the table folded if the full table isn’t needed. The Slim-Fold Table XL also features durable heat resistant aluminum tabletop that can hold up to 125 lbs and folds up quickly and is easily transported with the included carry handles.
