    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
    • Maximum weight capacity: 320 pounds
    • Item #HEL0005

    Almost the perfect chair!

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

    Light, easy to assemble and I really appreciate that it fits back into the bag easily after you break it down! Super comfortable, breathable and good looking... if they had included a drink holder, I would say it is the perfect camping chair. Drink holder aside, I would still repurchase!

    Camping Essential

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    A friend of mine brought one of these on a camping trip and I had to have one after trying his out. Super comfortable for sitting around a campfire. I normally car camp but I suppose you could backpack with them as well. It packs down small enough that I just keep it in my car for whenever I need it. Comes in handy for post mountain bike ride beers.

    Trade offs like most things in life.

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

    For me this chair is a good compromise. I am 6'1" and about 210 pounds. This was the smallest chair I could be somewhat comfy in for more than 5 minutes. This one is wider than most and the sides of the chair don't dig into my sides, as it IS wider than the other "backpacking" chairs that weigh less. This one is sturdy and really easy to set up once you have done it a few times. I don't take this backpacking every trip, but the longer, or shorter ones I do. Longer because I want the relief, shorter, because I don't care how much stuff I bring since it's short. it packs down small, but it still bulky. It rides outside my pack sandwiched in-between the lid and main pack body. It weighs over 2 pounds with it's bag according to my harbor freight scale.

    Here is the skinny: Not as comfortable as a full sized car camping chair, but more comfortable than the 1 pounders for this not so little backpacker!

    Light Weight and Durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this chair mainly for car camping and it has been great! It is crazy light weight and it can be taken anywhere. I have even brought it with me on backpacking trips and it has been worth it every time. The chair is super light and comfortable.

    Great travel chair

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

    I've been in the market for a travel chair for a bit. This one fits the bill as it is lightweight yet feels incredibly sturdy and reliable, The set up is similar to a tent, with easy connecting rods. I feel very comfortable in this chair.

    Perfect camping chair

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

    I got this as a trial run to see if i like chairs like this, and safe to say, they are awesome! i will definitely be getting another one.

    Car or Carry?

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

    So, when I think of car camping, I don't look forward to sitting in my Helinox Chair one. It's solidly built, impressively so, but simply not nearly as comfortable as a $5 garage sale bought regular camping chair--and for some tallish like me (6'2", 165 lb ectomorph male) it doesn't do anything for my neck and squeezes a bit uncomfortably just under my armpits. So, if you are car camping exclusively, then just go for the garage sale and save your money.

    But, when I think about using it on a hike as an alternative to sitting on the ground, it's good: we used it on a day romp in the woods and sitting in it for an hour or so was great--and entirely made possible by the chair's modest weight and size. We never would have taken a regular chair up and down the bluffs on a day hike.

    So, how do I score this? I suppose I will give it a four because for its intended use, it is clearly competent, if only a little pinchy on a guy with broad shoulders like myself.

    But, again, if you really mean to use it when a regular camping chair will do, just go for the regular chair.

    But for a light weight alternative to sitting on the ground. it's great, and seems uber solid for the long haul.

    Love These Chairs!!

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

    It's just a chair, but they are light, easy to carry, you can fit them in a backpack, and they are comfortable. What more could you want in a chair?

    Shweeeet!

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

    These chairs are super sweet. Compact when packed up. Can't believe this chair breaks down like it does. Should last a long time, whether in the mountains or on the sidelines.

    Amazing chair for anything

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This chair is not only great for camping and backpacking but basically anything. I’ve also taken to park, beach and soccer games to watch my kids. Super lightweight packs small and doesn’t take long at all to set up. All my friends want one now. Also it feels very high quality and durable which you can tell the difference when you try a simialar type of chair but cheaper and it’s definately worth the extra money for comfort and durability.

    Compact and durable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We love this chair! It is sturdy and very comfortable, as any good camp chair should be, but the selling point on the Helinox is how compactly it stores. Previous to purchasing these chairs we had the regular fold-up camp chairs. They took up so much space! With 2 adults, 3 kids (2 of them teenagers), and a medium-sized dog, space is at a premium in the 4Runner. Make the investment in this chair. You won't regret it.

    Compact and durable

    Small and Light Camping Chair

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love having a smaller camping chair that doesn't take up as much room so then you can fit more luggage in the car for camping. It is a fast and easy set up, the fabric is tight at first but gets easier to put on throughout use.

    Unanswered Question

    Dimensions of the chairs when set up would be helpful. I have bad knees, so if it's too low I don't think I could handle it. Same goes for all your chairs. I'd like to keep one in the chairs at all times.

    Can this be used inside a 2p backpack tent.

    Hey James, Thanks for asking! You could use this in a backpacking tent but depending on your tent and how tall you are, your head will probably touch. A better option would be the Camp One Mini that is slightly shorter. Your best option is probably to use it outside your tent and take a nap while it's raining outside! If you don't mind the ground, perhaps a Crazy Creek will work out best for sitting inside your tent.
