Lightweight, comfortable backpacking chair. Easy to set up and take down. Well made. Just returned from a 200-mile backcountry cycle tour in Idaho. Brought the Helinox chair with me as a luxury item. The slight weight penalty (very light for what it does) was well worth the comfort that it provided. This chair is easy to set up. It comes in a zippered carry bag with two loop straps that make storage of the bag easy. The shock corded aluminium chair structure pops together just like a tent pole structure. Full review
Very disappointed in this chair. It looked good quality. It's certainly lightweight and packs down to a tiny package...but it broke immediately when my wife sat on it. The plastic fitting broke and the chair is now useless. My wife is certainly less than the max weight rating. Look for something more robust. Full review
Lightweight (about 2kg) and most easy installation under 1.5 min with good design. Only the price is slightly high. I'd been looking for a light and easy cot and found two of all. They were the Helinox Cot 1 and Therm-a-Rest ultralight Cot. I gave my choice to the Helinox Cot 1 because it needs really fewer motions of setting up than the Ultralite cot and more reliabilities from their DAC pole. Full review
Excellent chair for camping, backpacking, festivals, etc. Easy to put together with the shock-corded poles. Two pounds with the included sturdy carry bag.

The fabric is durable and well sewn. This sturdy little chair can even hold up to 320 lbs. It comes with a very heavy duty carry bag that has a handy… Full review
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. 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. Full review
