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
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
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.

First off, the thing is extremely lightweight, coming in at just 2 lbs. 9.6 oz. Its dimensions make it a perfect fit for vertical attachment to my bugout bag and… Full review
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
