Reviewed: 9/7/2021: Jon – Exactly what I wanted in a chair. Lightweight, portable, low profile.

This chair is a great light weight small packages chair. Putting it on a slope downhill or uphill may make things awkward but that shouldn’t be a deterrent.

Assembly can be a small nuisance getting things to line up even with the ripcord/bungee system.

I bought it for portability and packed size. Nice to have a chair in the car or trunk that doesn’t take up a lot of space.

Nay-sayers can complain all they want about expense and stating it takes longer to set up than a traditional folding/camping chair. So what I don’t feel like carrying around a heavy ass chair.

I don’t feel like the build quality is crap like other chairs. I have another Heilnox chair for a few years and not one hole rip or tear. Friends of mine have purchased 2 or 3 camping chairs to my one.

Pro: Lightweight
Packable or strap it to the outside of the bag.
Build quality.

Cons: Anchor it down if it’s windy
Expensive but reasonable IMO.
Setup can be a pain when the rods don’t line up. Minor problem.

Most comfortable, durable, lightweight chair I’ve used. Went to Yosemite last week on a backpacking trip and although this is 1.2ibs, the extra weight was worth it to perfectly cradle my back and rest my legs after several miles of walking with a heavy pack. My only wish is that it were 1ib. It’s been a solid decade with chairs like these weighing 1.2+pounds. I want to see top of the line materials for a sub-1ib backpacking chair.


Reviewed: 7/18/2022: Stephanie – Do not use in sand

This chair is amazingly lightweight and pretty easy to assemble (after the first time). It is decently comfortable, especially for how small and lightweight it is. HOWEVER, this chair can not be used in the sand. I specifically bought one that had legs parallel to the ground so that I could use it in any kind of ground without sinking in too far. When used in the sand, the chair sinks in just enough for the holes to fill with sand, making it very difficult to get the legs back out of the holes. I had to have my husband yank it apart, because I couldn’t get the legs to budge. Once disassembled, all of the aluminum legs are all scratched from yanking them out of the sandy holes. This is pretty disappointing. My husband bought the Helinix beach chair, which does not have this problem, but it is much bigger (which is why I chose to go the smaller, lighter route). Oh well, I guess I’ll be looking for another chair.
