Recent Camp Chair Reviews

Helinox Chair One

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 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

rated 3 of 5 stars 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

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 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

rated 4 of 5 stars 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

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
