Helinox Chair Zero

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Having made fun of such chairs carried by other backpackers, I had to eat my words this summer when I caved in and bought the Helinox Chair Zero. I consider myself an ultralight backpacker, a veteran of many decades. My current pack weight for a week on the trail usually comes in at about 20-23 pounds (depending on bear canister or no), including food, so to consider adding a whole POUND of weight to my load required a monumental trade-off. For me, this chair is well worth the extra pound of weight. Full review

Helinox Chair Zero

rated 4 of 5 stars Beautiful design, very well-made, and light enough for backpacking; a bit low for tall people Sometimes I get the impression that UL hikers think comfort is a dirty word. For my part, I try to solve the weight-time-distance-comfort equation to maximize the FQ (fun quotient) for any given trip. Something to sit in or at least lean against can dramatically enhance the FQ on some trips, especially those that allow time for sitting around reading, sipping coffee, and nibbling bonbons. So ever since… Full review

REI Flexlite Chair

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight camp chair. Purchased the Flexlite in 2016 after considering against the Helinox. Ultimately chose the REI on price ($20 less) and comfort with REI products.  The chair is pretty great—comfortable, super easy to set up and breakdown. Bought for weekend backpack trips for comfort. It's a little bulky/heavy, especially as a non-necessity, but a nice reward after lugging a pack all day.  Pretty happy with it. Full review

Alite Monarch Chair

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Tired of sitting on the ground or searching for a dry place to sit at camp after a long hike? This chair fits in your backpack, is quick to set up, and is quite comfortable. Started carrying this chair a few years ago and now I carry it on every trip I take—you know, never leave home without it. It has a very small footprint and fits nicely stuffed in the corner of my backpack, packed in the quick access top pocket or in one of the side mesh pockets. It has a slightly bigger diameter and longer… Full review

WildHorn Outfitters TerraLite Chair

rated 5 of 5 stars Incredible durability and innovative foot design set this apart from all other camp chairs. Priced less than all competitors! This chair was up against several others that I had tried in the past, including the Helinox. While not as lightweight as the Helinox, this is far more durable, and so I find myself using this more than I otherwise would if it were just a "hiking accessory." I consider a chair a hiking luxury, as most would, but a cigar sure is nice in the mountains when you have a dry seat… Full review

Crazy Creek Hex 2.0 Original Camp Chair

rated 5 of 5 stars Saved my back. Sometimes, hiking when you're a middle aged mother of three who's broken her spine in three places can be a wee bit stressful on the back.   With this chair, I can take a break anywhere and recline fully supported and comfy and rest so I can enjoy the rest of my hike. I have read that completely open, it can double up as a half sleeping pad...  my jury's still out on this, lol.   It's super light and tough as nails, sets up in seconds and rolls nice and tight. I can fit mine inside… Full review

Helinox Ground Chair

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, compact camping chair. Rests low on the ground, but this is not a bad thing because it means you can stay seated when using your cooking gear. The first time I went camping, I squatted while preparing my supper and spent the rest of the evening sitting on a rock. At night I found it hard to sleep because my back was killing me. I realised that unless I could sit with my back supported, my venture into camping was going to come to a premature end. The Helinox Ground Chair was the answer. Full review

Leki Sub1

rated 4 of 5 stars A lightweight chair that is somewhere in between an all-purpose and a lightweight camp chair. Incredibly easy to set up and a durable base make it a good option for many functions. Conditions: I have been using the LEKI Sub1 for a wide range of purposes in a variety of conditions for nearly four months. The chair has been exposed to sun, snow, rain, and wind. The Sub1 has been used for car camping, hunting, tailgating, and hanging around the backyard fire pit. It has also been packed into an Osprey… Full review

REI Hang Time Chair

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The REI Hang Time Chair is extremely comfortable and ideally suited to car camping. It is one of those chairs that everyone will be trying to sit in, so lay claim to it early—if it belongs to you. I have covered my impressions of this chair pretty well in the pros and cons list. I don't have much else to add other than the fact that inserting the backrest tubes can take a little bit of effort for someone that is not mechanically inclined. But not a problem for the most part. The reclining angle… Full review
