rEvolve: Spin Me Right Round
Nothing is better than sitting in a comfortable chair and having your favorite tunes. Well, one thing is better: being able to take that chair where ever you go!
The rEvolve Chair is a well made, nylon, easily opens and closes (quickly fits in its zip-close carry bag), light weight (11lbs, yet can still support up to 300lbs), roomy (18″ by 21″ in the seat), full 360 degree swiveling, anywhere bag chair. The one we got to play with even had speakers and a place to put your MP3 player. This is the perfect chair for camping or for backyard BBQs. It is light enough to carry with you for a little bit, but I would not advise going backpacking with it. It is ideal for car camping, park picnics, or that tailgating party. It is great that it comes with built-in speakers, to help eliminate one more thing that you might need to carry.
The speakers are made with a single person in mind, but you can turn them up (as long as the person in the chair doesn’t mind) and everyone can enjoy the tunes. I really like the idea of having this chair for singular camping trips, where the comfort of the chair and your favorite tunes are welcoming.
The other cool part about this chair is that it has a 360 degree rotation. This gives you a lot more freedom with your movement than most other bag chairs, helping you catch every part of the party. The goofballs here took it for many spins (trying to see how fast we could go), and it not only held up well to our abuse, but it swivels pretty smoothly.
All and all, is this a product someone needs? Perhaps not. Is it a fun novelty that you can use, even if you don’t use the speakers all the time? Totally. As far as standard bag chairs go, the rEvolve Chair is going to be more expensive, at $72, with its 360 degree rotation capabilities and speakers, but those are the unique characteristics that make this chair stand out. If you think you can live without the speakers, you can find the chair for a little less at $67. However, I would not bother saving the $5, and I would just get the speakers.
