Reviewed several lightweight chairs before choosing this one. Glad I chose the Helinox. It's great for backpacking and for music festivals. This chair is perfect for that. It is very comfortable too. With four feet it stays off the ground unlike some other LW models.
- Looks good
- No cup holder
- No head rest
This is a really great chair for the size and weight. The sitting height is ideal; it's tall enough that you can still stand up from it without having to push off with your arms while still sitting low for camp fires and music festivals.
The chair frame will "adjust" to fit uneven ground surface so it is very stable.
The cloth and stitching are top notch quality. I anticipate many years of service from this chair.
The bag is easy to use; you don't have to solve a puzzle to get the chair back in the pouch. It has loops so you can strap it to the outside of your pack.
We use this chair at the kids' sporting events too. Way easier to carry than one of those backyard lounge chairs. Worked great at the beach too. The feet sunk into the sand just enough to anchor it from blowing over when not being used.
All in all... Love this chair and will be getting another one soon.

This chair is for the hiker who is ready for the most comfort for their carry! I've sat in a lot of styles of camp chairs but this one far succeeds its competition. Just over a pound it is so nice to be off the ground especially when the ground is wet!
- Sturdy construction
- Very compact
- Hammock campers don't have to carry a sit pad
- Heavier than a sit pad
- Legs sink on soft ground
- Does weigh over a pound
This chair has cords in the legs so when assembling or breaking down, all the parts stay together. It also has a very sturdy seat with the proper ventilation for your warmer adventures. Altogether it will make anyone's adventure more comfortable around the campsite.
