All the awesome.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a camp chair. It is too big/heavy for backpacking proper, though you'd be fine on a 3 mile out-n-back just fine. If you're car camping, there are cheaper bag chair options. If you're a frequent paddler like me though, have a few nights by the bonfire ahead of you and want the Cadillac of travel chairs, do not look anywhere other than the Helinox chairs w/ headrests. I specifically have the beach chair, but would love to try the sunset/two model chairs as well.
I'm in the BWCA half a dozen times a year on 4-5 day canoe trips. I have tried every brand and type of chair and had 2 requirements when looking for my own: Can't be the size/weight of a full bag chair, has to be comfortable enough to sleep in if the weather's perfect and the fire's toasty.
This is it. This is the real deal. It's the holy grail of this genre.
Perfect Beach Chair
I was hesitant to spend this much on a beach chair, but this one is worth every penny. I live in NYC and regularly ride my bike to a ferry, then take a ferry to the beach. So size and weight and very important to me. This chair easily fits in my small backpack with a towel, book, sunscreen, and snacks for a beach day. It also takes less than 30 seconds to set it up and is the most comfortable beach chair I have ever used.
