This is not the typical folding outdoor chair!  Although the rEvolve chair does fold up into a carry bag, that's where the similarities end with most outdoor chairs.  The rEvolve has a swivel base, so you can turn from side and side - even a full 3600 - and never miss the action of a game. [...]

Winter is gone and that means it's time to get outdoors and fire up the grill for some burgers and hotdogs. I'm not sure about you, but it always makes me a little queasy when I have to squirt lighter fluid on charcoal. I know most of it burns away once the charcoal comes up [...]
