Why We Like The Sunset Camp Chair

Helinox's Sunset Camp Chair is a surefire way to induce the highest level of luxuriating outdoors. A bit of neck support goes a long way after full days spent hiking, and the Sunset's stuff sack doubles as a pillow that we can strap to the chair. Select models have mesh panels for extra durability, and the rest have unique styles that look the place for concerts and park hangs.

Super Comfortable

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size

I love this chair so much! I take it rock climbing and it's light enough to not be a bother on the approach. Material is super strong and I've never had a worry about it and the same goes for the piping. Super reliable and I definitely feel like I can trust it. Also, I love the way you can use the bag a pillow although it makes it a bit too easy to fall asleep.

Great chair but one strange design error

Love the chair. Easy set up, comfortable, compact, attractive. The headrest and chair Velcro don’t quite match up as they should. It seems that the Velcro on the back of the chair should the hooked side so that it can receive the plush counterpart on the strap but both are plush. Its a strange oversight and I can’t quite figure it out beyond it simply being an error. Odd that it has yet to be corrected.

Love

I just purchased 2 of these chairs and made the same discovery. I called Helio and they said that that female portion of the velcro on the travel bag is just to keep that closed so that the male velcro patch there doesn't damage anything else. But, the promotional pictures of the headrest in place certainly make it look like this should fold over the top and attach to the other side. But it doesn't as it just sort of hangs there loosely. I can't begin to make mine look attached rigidly like their photos appear to make it do. So, why is there female velcro on the back of the chair? And who wants to rest their head on a giant rectangle of female velcro on the front if you don't attach the saggy carry bag/pillow on there? the only solution i can see is to buy a strip of male only velcro and attach the sticky side of two pieces to each other. then use that to help this female strand on the carry bag to attach to the back. Haven't tried it yet, but seems like the only solution. Honestly, this detail makes me wish I had bought a cheaper knock off chair that doesn't have this feature...

Lightweight yet so durable!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This chair was a questionable purchase for me at first, that is until I took this camping. I was amazed at how lightweight this chair was. Along with the comfort as well, it was the perfect chair to take an afternoon nap in or spend some quality time around the campfire. Highly recommend.

Love it

Love this chair! Very pack able and lightweight for long trip walking, or when I need to fit a lot of stuff in my roof box! Super comfortable!

So comfortable and lighweight

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I love these things. They pack up so small, are so lightweight and perfect car camp chairs. I appreciate that they elevate you off the ground while still providing the kick-back-headrest experience of lower-to-the-ground beach chairs. They are also nice enough to bring out to my backyard if we don't have enough deck chairs for company. Apparently the carrying case becomes a pillow you can attach to the chair itself if you stuff a towel in it, but I have not tried it yet. These chairs are definitely more expensive than your average camp chair but I think they're well worth it!

Camping Chair Comfort

I've used it several times

Light chair that packs down to a reasonable size. Doesn't take up much room in our van or in a pack to lounge at the evening fire

Best chair ever!

I am an “old guy”, 70+, but still enjoy camping. So whatever I can do to make things more comfortable, I’m there! This chair is very comfortable and is the best I ever tried! Love it!

great chair

Super comfortable and packs away nicely.

Packs down small for the size.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I love these chairs, especially how small they pack down. We bought these chairs because of their packed size. Packing camp chairs for a family used to take up so much space, these have been worth the investment just for the space savings.

Helinox Sunset Camp Chair

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've used this chair a few times since it arrived and am very pleased with my purchase. It sets up and goes back in its case with ease, its light weight and comfortable. It is a great replacement for my old chair when spending a few hours at a music festival or for sitting around a campfire. I've received quite a few positive comments from others that are not familiar with the product. Time will tell on its durability and longevity. My only issue had to do with the Backcountry ordering process when using PayPal for payment.

Envy of the Campsite

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Purchased this chair for several reasons. To use for car camping, outdoor concerts, etc.. I took this on a 5 night float trip in northern Idaho and was the envy of the campsite nights and mornings. Everyone else had little three post stools. This chair was super comfortable -- even for my 6'5 frame- for long periods of time. Great quality build and unbelievably lightweight. Consider this for camping, tailgating, or outdoor concert going.

I love this chair.

It is so light, so comfy & so awesome. Break out the credit card it's worth it. I love the high back to rest my head on and it's so compact when put away.

Helinox Sunset Chair

Lean back and relax in the Sunset Chair. With a high, supportive backrest you’ll enjoy taking in the view from your back deck or a campsite while the sun sets (or rises). This chair is lightweight, is designed for easy set up with a single shock corded pole structure, and will be the envy of everyone on your next overnight trip. Accessory pillow sold separately.

Pretty Big

Super comfortable and pretty light for its size. However, I thought the size of it packed down would be a little smaller. I don't think I will take it backpacking. Picture coming soon.

BEST camp chair ever

This is by far the most comfortable chair for camping .I use it for my motorcycle tours. Dont know what else to say other than I love it

>Rating: 5

Comfortable

Great camp chair with a tall back that you can lean into. I really like that I can lean back and rest my head in this chair. It breaks down and packs really small into an included bag.
