Awesome Size When Packed

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We bought these chairs to save room while packing for extended family camping trips. The old camp chairs took up almost 1/3 of the space we had. These chairs pack so small you almost forget about them. Comfortable and sturdy, worth the investment.

Unanswered Question

Dimensions of the chairs when set up would be helpful. I have bad knees, so if it's too low I don't think I could handle it. Same goes for all your chairs. I'd like to keep one in the chairs at all times.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this chair for long days of hanging out while climbing. The chair packs small, about the size of a large water bottle, and is really light. I just throw it in my pack with the rest of my gear. The one downside of this chair is that I never get to use it myself. Once I set it up at the crag, my climbing partners always wind up sitting around in it all day. Maybe I need to buy another one.....

Great chairs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My wife and I love these chairs. Worth the extra few pounds. Bought them during one of the big sales at a hell yes price.

The only camp chair you need!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these chairs because they are easy to put up / down and are lightweight and easy to take with you where ever you go. I bring my camping and pack them in a backpack for summer concert series. These are the only camp chairs you need!

Great chair

    Great for backpacking

    Ditch the Bulk

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Camping, Tailgating, just plain lounging this chair gets it done. Stop dragging around the big bulky chairs, this one is super comfortable, packs quickly and easily and is light enough to carry around.

    Lighter & more comfy than you'd think

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I was really impressed how compact and light these chairs are. Construction is on the luxe side, no cheap-out here at all. I could easily see kickin' back at the campsite in these chairs and letting my tired bones rest.

    great camp chair

      This is a great chair to take camping. Set up is super easy just pull it out and it almost snaps itself into place. In less than a min you can have yourself a comfortable chair to kick back and relax in. I have taken it on a few short hikes up the local mountain so i have a place to sit other than a hard rock. This chair is a great buy.

      Hey Jason, thanks for taking the time to write a quick review! These Helinox chairs can be such a great addition to a pack for backpacking and day hikes. They pack down small and are so lightweight I hardly notice it's there. Thanks again!

      The perfect wedding gift

        I love giving these chairs as wedding gifts to my outdoorsy friends. You can pick a “his” and “her” color and in my experience it’s not something they will have thought off but will be super stoked to receive. Once you go helinox you never go back!

        Can this be used inside a 2p backpack tent.

        Hey James, Thanks for asking! You could use this in a backpacking tent but depending on your tent and how tall you are, your head will probably touch. A better option would be the Camp One Mini that is slightly shorter. Your best option is probably to use it outside your tent and take a nap while it's raining outside! If you don't mind the ground, perhaps a Crazy Creek will work out best for sitting inside your tent.

        Never go anywhere without this chair!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I snagged the helinox one camp chair for the main purpose of taking it backpacking and camping. But quickly learned that I really should just take this helinox chair with me everywhere I go. Summer concerts, softball games, tailgating, or just hanging out at the park. This chair doesn't take up any room so why not leave it in your vehicle at all times?

        Take It Everywhere

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I bought two of these chairs as a gift for friends of mine. They rave about them after each use. All of their hiking buddies are jealous every time they head out backpacking. They said the chairs are light enough that they don't question whether or not to bring them. I plan on picking up one of these for myself.


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I originally got this chair to take car camping. It's so lightweight I will for sure pack on my next backpacking trip. Surprisingly comfy and worth every penny.

        Best Backpacking Chair in the Game

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Worth the carry on any backpacking trip. 'Nuff said.


        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I had bought these as gifts, multiple times, and finally got a couple for myself. I'm impressed. They're super lightweight, they compact well, they are easy to use, and comfortable .

        Light Comfortable Chair

          Lightweight, packable, and comfortable. Normally you only get the first two and not the third, but I have consistently used this while car camping and as extra seating in our house when its busy and can attest that is an extremely comfortable camp chair! I'm so excited to bring these on an Iceland trip as well for picnics and hiking!

          Big Things Come In Small Packages

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          This is a great little chair! It is incredibly lightweight and packs very small. It is also super quick and easy to set up. I've used it on several camping trips this past summer. The mesh material helped air out my back on super hot days. The chair itself is fairly small and sits pretty low to the ground. I'm not sure how well it would fit someone that is super tall. I think this chair is very comfortable, but I'm also pretty short. The chair is so small that I just leave it in the back of my car in case I'm ever in a situation that I might need a seat.


            I love these chairs they are so small and light great for taking it on backpacking trips. Very sturdy


            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            Very light and backpack-able camp chair. Packs with my backpack nicely, doesn't take up a lot of space and doesn't add much weight either.
