    Stores small, feels light, and offers huge comfort after a long day in the woods.

    Set up base camp, whip out the Helinox Chair One Camp Chair, and suddenly your friends will regret their decision to sit on the ground or pull up a stump. This comfortable little chair uses a mesh seat suspended on a lightweight aluminum frame. Easy to setup and easy to break down, the Chair One Chair is ideal for car camping or even overnight backpacking trips when you want a little extra luxury around the camp fire.

    • Pole technology is the same that DAC uses in their high-end Helinox trekking poles and tent poles
    • Aluminum material makes the poles lightweight and durable enough for seasons of camping trips
    • Hub-and-pole structure keeps the poles attached at the seat joints so all you have to do is unfold the poles and position the back and seat stays to ready them for the seat cover
    • Feet have rubberized coating that keep your chair from sliding on rock or slick surfaces
    • Synthetic cover is made of mesh that's breathable and quick-drying so you can sit comfortably no matter what the weather
    • Zippered storage bag holds the folded seat cover and collapsed frame so you can save space when you're not using this chair

    • Item #HEL0005

    Comfy and Portable!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This chair really is amazing. It's incredibly light and packs away into a small case. Perfect for backpacking. Setup is very quick and easy, and although the chair almost seems like it would be flimsy, it holds up to plenty of weight. I really love how comfortable the chair is. you really sink into it and it feels great. A cup holder would be nice but it doesnt really work with the design of the chair with no arm rests after all.

    Tiny!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just picked up two of these chairs after an overnight trip with some friends who had them. I was so impressed with how small and light they packed down to. All the comfort you get out of a nylon chair, with just a little stretch to the fabric. So far I have only brought car camping, but I would not hesitate to bring backpacking with how light and small they are.

    Best 100 i ever spent!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First time I used it was in a downpour while grilling a ribeye on bank of Black River. Except for needing tennis balls on legs to prevent sinking in soft ground this thing rocks! I'm 245 lbs. Can lean back and enjoy. Will never sit on a rock again! Weight...what weight? I'll pack it gladly. Top quality construction as well.

    Campside

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love how lightweight and easy to assemble this is! Broke my finger and couldn't help much setting up camp but this chair made it so easy! Comfortable and sturdy. Supported my 90lb lab thinking he is a lap dog! Can't wait to take this backpacking and up a summit!

    I've Taken It Backpacking

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It packs down super small, it's super light, and it's super comfy. I took it backpacking, my friends made fun of me for bringing a chair, I was the one laughing in the end.

    I also watched the second half of the Falcons/Patriots Superbowl sitting in this chair and we all know how that ended, so, I can't say for sure, but I will anyways, this chair won the Patriots the Superbowl.

    It is a great chair that can be used in many different settings.

    It's Really Small and Light

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    This camp chair is basically perfect. Doesn't take up much space and it's pretty damn light to boot.

    No more Lugging

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For years I have just sat on the ground at concerts, games, picnics etc because I can't stand lugging folding chairs around. NOT ANYMORE - I can throw this chair into my purse and park it anywhere. Worth the $ for no more hassle.

    Mind Blowing!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm used to crappy, inexpensive, heavy chairs. Then I bought this chair and will not ever change chairs again. This chair is strong/durable, always feels safe and secure instead of other chairs feeling like they are going to break if you sit on it. It's extremely comfortable and light weight. A must have chair!

    Love the chair - graphics...not so much

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    My wife loved the chair, but the Aspen Grove graphics leave much to be desired - it's subtle, but there's a distracting nude female back drawing etched into the trees that just doesn't belong on a camp chair (in our humble opinion). The chair itself is great though. We bought one locally in the black color since our trip was only a day out from when the Backcountry order arrived. I'm 6'4" and my wife is 5'6" - it fits us both well (though we both are on the thin side - unsure how a more ample backside would do in it).

    Should Have Bought Two

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm usually a minimalist when it comes to camping gear (2lbs, that's 1/2 the weight of my tent!) but I decided to scoop this up during a holiday sale for a wilderness medicine class I was taking, where a lot of the course would be outdoors, and I didn't want to sit on the ground all day.

    I had no idea what I've been missing! First, 2lbs is incredibly light for a chair. When I've borrowed chairs from friends for car camping they're always heavy, and even when folded are kind of awkward and difficult to pack around in the car. This folds down to nothing, and is a perfect little rectangular tube inside its bag, making it easy to fit in a backpack or your trunk. Second, it's easy to put together, the first time I opened it I was sitting comfortably in less than a minute. Lastly, it's very sturdy, this fabric doesn't feel like you'll tear it and it's easy to wipe down so you'll be able to keep it from getting grimy.

    It now lives in the back of my truck so I have it ready for impromptu beach trips, or relaxing after a trail run. I'm definitely going to get a second!

    I Love Helinox

      This brand has stood the test of time, and lots of use and abuse. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a long term camp chair solution. We have had ours for almost 2 years and it still feels good to lean back in it after a long hike.

      Great Camping Chair

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you are looking for a sweet camping chair that does not take up much space look no further. This chair packs down into a small bag that is around 10 inches long and 4 inches thick and can easily strap to the outside of your backpack. It takes about 20 seconds to set up and is pretty comfortable. The only drawback that some people might not like is that it does not come with a cup holder, but that is probably the only thing people might dislike about this chair.

      This chair has your back

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      It's hard to find things to say that other reviews haven't already said.

      After any kind of physical activity, sitting in this chair is the most glorious thing. This chair makes any camping trip better. I would happily add the extra weight to any backpacking trip.

      Could Not be Happier

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      This chair is so comfortable and when backpacking is one of those small things you can look forward to all day on the trail. Comfort is super important to me when backpacking and having something like this that is so light while being sturdy and providing support for my back is exactly what I was looking for. I will be recommending these chairs to all of my friends who hike, camp, or even just for tailgating.

      Perfect portable chair

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I can't say enough good things about my Helinox Chair One. For those of us with short legs, it makes lounging so nice. I don't mind not having a drink holder as I am close enough to the ground to just set it there and not worry about spilling. Pay attention to how it comes out of the back originally as rolling it back up is a bit tricky.

      Get one already!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is one of my favorite pieces of gear. compact and light enough to bring backpacking, but equally as at home car camping. The design is genius, it's a breeze to set up and it's incredibly comfortable.

      Love it

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I use this at all day volleyball tournaments and it's totally comfortable and not blocking anyone else views. Lightweight enough to take anywhere, assembles like a breeze and then packs down equally easy into its own little bag.
