REI Flexlite Chair

I overlooked the wobble in favor of size and weight. However, my mesh developed a rip, not due to weight (I'm 160 lbs) or misuse. There is NO customer service! These chairs are not cheap, and there are NO resources for replacement parts. REI will not replace them after one year. Youngone Corp who manufactures the chair is impossible to contact. There is NO customer service or even an email. So they are essentially a $90 throwaway. Shame on those that preach sustainability or carbon footprint.    … Full review

Therm-a-Rest Trekker Chair Kit

The Trekker Chair Kit is a relatively light and supportive supplement to your air mattress so you can lounge around camp at the end of a long day. It packs away in a small roll, adapts to different sized pads, and provides decent lower back support. It could be a bit taller in the back, and is usable but not overly comfortable on its own without a pad. As it’s a seat on the ground, it fits well for lounging around in your shelter but would get dirty sitting around camp and takes a little while… Full review

Helinox Chair One

The chair is lightweight, simple to put together, and keeps you off the cold/wet ground. I’m a solid 240lbs and wasn’t worried at all regarding the structural integrity of the chair. They boast a 320lb-rating and I see no reason to question those specs. The reason for only 4-1/2 stars was due to the legs wanting to sink in the soil...larger feet pads could help eliminate that. Overall a great addition to one's gear closet! The chair is lightweight, simple to put together, and keeps you off the… Full review

Helinox Chair One

These chairs are light, pack small, and are pretty comfortable. Who says they are not for backpacking? I take mine on every trip. Just wait until you get a little older. A chair changes everything when it comes to comfort in the outdoors. Easy to set up. Works like it is supposed to. Well made. The first thing I do at the end of a day on the trail when backpacking is take off the pack, set up the chair, and sit down and take off the hiking boats and slip into a pair of crocs. That is living.  On… Full review

Helinox Ground Chair

Chair's OK. Went on a backpacking trip in Mammoth Cave NP two years ago with a friend. He had the chair, I didn't. I used it more than he did and bought it from him when we returned. Was better than sitting on the ground or a log but the angle of the back was uncomfortable for me. Full review

Helinox Ground Chair

A well-engineered balance of light weight, comfort, and functionality. Gets you off the ground, but low enough to use in a tent or vestibule. The stable base won't sink into soft ground. Extra insulation needed for cold weather use or to protect tent floor. Some backcountry campsites have features that provide natural seating. While a rock or a log to sit on stool-wise is a good start, for my part I want something that I can lean against: a big tree that curves gracefully into its roots or a boulder… Full review

REI Flexlite Chair

Good camping/hiking chair. Strong and lightweight. Not too big...it packs away fairly small. I have owned this chair for two years and I am happy with it. I cook, eat, and drink my well earned glass of wine after a long day of hiking seated in this chair. Bought one for my GF...she loves it also. In all, it's great to be off the ground. Full review

Helinox Chair Zero

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

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
