Very light, pack very small, reliable, and easy to use. We own two pairs of these poles and I have just ordered another pair of the Passport TLs as I initially purchased the shorter 115cm poles and have since realized I prefer longer 125 cm poles. These poles are fixed in length so make your purchase carefully. They come in three sections connected by elastic shockcord and take seconds to extend and connect up. When folded and packed away they are smaller than a rolled newspaper. Once extended and… Full review
These poles are a joy to use because they are so lightweight and the groove lock makes them fully adjustable while not giving way even when doing serious off-trail hiking. They are best for any type of hiking or moderate backpacking. I have been using these poles for the last two years on both trail hikes and off-trail hikes, as well as backpacks both on and off trail.

It was a toss up between getting the 'Evrgrn Campfire Rocker' chair and when I tried the Rocker chair upon getting up, the chair slid from under me and my butt ended up on the floor, can you imagine if you had a hot drink in your hand? So yeah, this Helinox chair came out the clear winner. … Full review
Guilty pleasure, luxury item must-have. I've always been anti backpacking chair (except when I used to bungee an old school steel shorty beach chair to my external frame pack in the early '90s). Several years ago I tried one of those soft seats with the side straps that hold up the back. Hated it and threw it in the trash. I've seen the expensive packable backpacking chairs going around for years. Wasn't into the Monarch balance version and the ones they added legs to didn't seem sturdy and were… Full review
