    Time for an upgrade!

      i had a pretty uncomfortable chair the last 2 years so it was time to update to something comfortable and lightweight that will fit easy in my over night pack. This chair is just that! comes in a small storage bag and is easy to set up and put away. cannot wait for all the camping adventures with this new addition of comfort.

      Never look for a log/rock again

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have used this now on multiple backpacking trips. This is one purchase I really questioned if I should make as I started in to backpacking. This is an absolute must have and worth every ounce of additional weight. It is so nice to be able to have a chair vs a rock/log after a long day on the trail.

      It is very easy to set up and really comfortable! I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one just like it.

      The LazyBoy of the Mountains

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This thing rocks! The assembly is very straight forward and take no time once you figure it out. It packs down pretty small for a camp chair of its size, and of it's comfort level. And not to mention it's Camo, which looks pretty sweet. Pretty good price, and it will be a good product for anyone looking to camp/hike/sit down anywhere.

      Comfortable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This chair is very lightweight and packs down small! I have used it for all sorts of things, from sporting events to long backpacking trips. It's so nice at the end of a long hike to be able to sit in a comfortable chair. It's great!

      Take a load off!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Game changer! Why I didn’t buy one of these sooner, I do not know. Some of my friends thought it was ridiculous to carry a chair on top of all of the other gear you might need for a few days in the mountains…until they sat in it with a fresh, cold boulevardier after a long day on the trail. The only issue is the possible reclassification of a backpacking trip as “glamping”. So, it’s 2 pounds of additional weight, boo-freaking-hoo. If you were into ultra-lightweight backpacking, would you even be looking at a backpacking chair? No. Buy it and thank me later.

      On another note, I guess I’ve failed to realize that you might want to purchase this chair for something other than backpacking. It’d probably be good for any other activity when you might like to rest your butt on something other than the ground but have exhausted all of the available trunk space in your Miata on something of higher priority such as beer, Frisbees or a razor scooter. It is light, packs down small, and comes with a cool carrying case.

      Ultra Compact Camp Chair

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you are looking for an ultra compact, low to the ground, and comfortable chair, this is it. I brought this on a 2 day hike in trip recently and my friends could not get over the fact I had packed a chair in our trip. This chairs packs down to an unbelievably small size. At 14 x 4 x 5, this chair takes up half to a third of the size of all my other camp chairs. I'm also finding I can take this to outdoor concerts and tons of other activities without having to make multiple trips. This chair will be the envy of your next trip with friends.

      A Throne Fit for a King

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The mid-September air was fresh, surprisingly warm and with a hint of fall lingering around the corner with the cool breeze off the big lake Gitche Gumee. Our spirits were high and our packs were full with the necessities and nothing more as we set off for our 12 mile day hike to the highly anticipated lunch stop at a waterfall.



      ...fast forward 3 hours, my out-of-shape, pencil-pushing, weekend-warrior self slogging through the trail, huffing and puffing, approaching each small waterfall saying to my wife, "this is gotta be the one! I really think it is this time!"



      Alas, once we reached the mid-point of our jaunt through the forest, there was nothing besides my tuna and cheese sandwich I was more happy to see in my pack than our Helinox Camp Chairs. My other option was a rock...a hard, muddy, dirty, rock. My fat butt deserves better, heck, it demands better, and that's where this chair comes in. Stable, sets up in seconds, comfortable enough to consider throwing out my furniture in my house to replace it with these bad boys. To say I highly recommend them is an understatement, the price tag is high but they're worth it. It's the easiest extra 2 lbs decision to add to your pack.



      Honestly I was on the fence between a couple of chair options, (the shorter one is less weight...but you're closer to the ground/mud/water and have to keep your balance a little) but Karissa @ BC helped big time and guided me into this fine tuffet for my muffet. I'm a big guy, 6'2" and 215 on a good day, and this chair supports me so well. If you doubt me, email klamb@backcountry.com and she'll point you in the right direction.

      My Fav Camping Equipment!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I got this chair for myself to use at the 10-day trip to the K2 Base Camp. Every evening after trekking 20-30 kms we would reach the campsite and I would pull it out, put beside my MH Tangent tent and watch the heavenly views of the giant mountains of Karakoram. It is simple, easy to set up and very comfortable. It is one of my fav camping gear.

      "Worth Every Cent"

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

      I bought two of these as a gift, for my Aunt Linda. Here's what she had to say :

      "The Helinox chair is lightweight, portable, compact, and strong.  It fits nicely in the carrying case which can easily be hung from the chair when not in use.  I appreciate the ease and speed of setting it up and putting it away.  This chair is the relief your body needs after backpacking, driving, or hours spent dancing at a festival.  I will enjoy this chair after many adventures.  The Helinox is worth every cent. "

      Nice and light

        I got this chair to replace the heavy camp chair I was lugging on hikes -- what a great move! This chair is super light, very compact, and pretty comfortable. I would say that if you want to do some serious lounging the back isn't high enough, but if you want to be able to sit in comfort off the ground, this chair is an excellent choice.

        Pack it in!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        If you’re thinking of just sitting on a stump or rock instead of this to save a couple pounds backpacking, don’t! This is light-weight and the seat sits a grown man wider than you’d expect, with a great back-angle to lounge in after walking all day. The inner-chords that hold the skeleton frame are thick and tough too!

        Pretty Comfortable for it's size

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

        I bought this chair since it says it's weight limits are considerably higher than most at 320lbs. It's fairly comfortable for it's size and seems pretty sturdy. I'll be taking it out into the backcountry so hopefully the ground will be dry enough to use it.

        No excuse to be uncomfortable

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        For the longest time I have always battled with making the decision to either pack in my big/heavy camping chairs or just find rocks/logs to set up on.

        I have had this chair in my sights for a while but was pretty hesitant due to the price. I finally pulled the trigger and am SO GLAD I did. I can't believe it took me so long. They pack down nice and small and are so light you barely notice them. Obviously if you are a superlight backpacker you probably aren't looking to bring a chair but if you are like most of us you are ok with bringing a little extra gear for some comfort.

        An added perk is that the bag has a little daisy chain attached on the outside so it can easily be strapped to the outside of your pack. If you are on the fence I STRONGLY recommend you go for it. You will not be upset.

        One downside I noticed was that where I took it for the first time the ground was very soft. The small surface area of each leg would sink down into the soft ground. They now offer a ground mat to solve this problem.

        I am usually a minimalist

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

        Okay,

        I just went backpacking with my dad and his buds. They were all bringing these chairs. I really did not want to due to the extra weight but I am glad I did what everyone else did! The chair came in handy!!!! There was snow and cold ground everywhere we were.

        The chair was perfect for keeping my bum warm and dry from the big rock we chilled on!

        It fit on the top of my stuff in my backpack. This thing is super small and seems really durable.

        1lb of luxury

          Love this chair! I've tried both the REI and Big5 versions, which are both less expensive, but fall short compared to this chair's comfort and quality. It is totally worth the price for the real deal. And IMHO worth the extra weight on backpacking trips as the first thing I do is set up my chair and kick off my shoes when we reach our destination.

          Best camp chair ever

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Every time I take this camping at least a few people ask me about it. Where did I get it? How can they get one? Yes, its a $100 camp chair, and it's worth every penny. My ONLY complaint is that it's a little tricky to fold the chair and seat back into the zipper carry bag, but once you get the hang of it it's easy and the bag is definitely big enough.

          Worth the price tag

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          These things roll up into TINY bags. About 1 foot long and 6 inches in diameter so it's super easy to bring with you camping or hiking. They're comfortable, durable and compact. Not sure you can ask for more than that. I used to have the Walmart $10 chairs and while they got the job done for car camping, they quality can't compare to these and you can take these EVERYWHERE! and love the colors.
