Initial Thoughts on the Helinox Chair Zero

The Heliox Chair Zero is a super lightweight chair that really gives you no excuse not to pack it on your next trip. In the 10 years that I’ve been backpacking, I’ve never once bothered to pack a chair but now that’s all about to change. I can’t wait to actually sit down with my favorite meal and admire the sunset in comfort. This one-pound chair sets up in exactly no time flat and is bound to make your camping trips more comfortable.

Pros Cons
  • Incredibly lightweight
  • So lightweight it could blow away if left unattended at camp
  • Quick and easy to setup
  • Very comfortable
