Rated 5 out of 5 by SAM1914 very clever
This is a very clever, very light chair. The design is innovative & it seems well made.
The only caveat is the chair is rated for 275 #. I weigh 240 and I fit in the chair but not to well. I haven't used it much so I don't know how it will hold up.
My suggestion is that if you are more that 200# it might not be the best for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jhkretired Great chair
This is a great chair that fits perfect in my Harley's saddlebag. Really very comfortable, easy to set up and use and folds up to a really lightweight and small package. This is great for the motorcycle and for camping. The only fault is that it does tend to sink into sand and mud. We use it a lot and would highly recommend it.

I thought the chair I've used for years was lightweight, but as I get older the chair seems to get heavier: then along came Helinox. Truly light weigh and comfortable. If I had a suggestion to make,it would be add a pound and raise the seat 3" or 4" inches. So far it's a little stiff (tight) fit to assemble, but i imagine it will loosen up a bit over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Larryville Exceeded my expectations
I love this chair. It is light and compact to tote around, easy to set up and break down, AND a comfortable seat. I worried that it might sit too low but I am just a tad lower than my husband sitting next to me in a typical umbrella chair. I will most likely buy another one to have a set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IggyFisher Great, ultra-light chair
I am 6' tall and weigh 220 and this chair fits me just fine. It's light enough to take anywhere, even on short backpack trips, and sets-up and folds-up in about 30 seconds. It's strong and durable, and I like the little case that it comes in.
My wish list for this product is:
1) I would have liked the carrying case to have a shoulder strap,
2) It sits closer to the ground than the picture alludes to, and you tend to sink in a bit.
Neither of these things are negative enough to have me reduce my number of stars for a rating.
You can find this chair for a dollar or two less on other sites, but for the extra buck, I get the Bean money-back, no-questions-asked guarantee, and to me, that's worth much more than a dollar or two. I am completely satisfied with this chair.

Many times while back packing a comfortable chair is totally out of the question because of weight and bulk.........Not any more!!
This chair is the real deal at only 2 pounds and about the same size as my inflatable mattress. "VERY WELL BUILT" It only takes a minute to set it up or take it down and is "VERY COMFORTABLE" and will last for years. No more setting on a log or rock. A GREAT FIND at a GREAT PRICE .......Good job LL BEAN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zorrito Big Agnes Helinox Chair
I have been looking for a camping chair that packs down to fit my motorcycling camping habit. This chair really folds down into a small package that will fit into a saddlebag, tank pannier or tent travel bag. It is comfortable, quickly set up[ and will support my 220 pounds with ease. I will be showing this chair at the upcoming camp outs and recommending others consider purchasing it.

Love this chair. Hesitant at first because of the cost. If it holds up I will be thoroughly convinced. Very to light to carry in a great case. Very comfortable, had some skeptics when camping, but when they would not get up, I knew they were convinced. Just bought another one for my husband. Hope to get great use from it

Rated 5 out of 5 by trufflefamily Extreme comfort, ultra lightweight -Gotta have it!
This chair is incredible. Super lightweight. We took it on a five-day hike & my tush was screaming "Hallelujah" at the end of each day. The back support as well as comfiness was amazing. It doesn't look like it would be durable, but we had guys sitting on it that were well in the upper 280 lb. range. It's very easy to put together & put away. This is a leisure seat so don't expect to be able to lean forward easily & do your cooking. The only other drawback we found was that the legs sunk down in one of the campsites that was soft. The two little feet came off when we pulled it out & had to be washed and slipped back on. Not a big deal. The other 10 hikers with us all agreed that the chair was well worth the $90 that I paid for it. This is the second chair I bought for our family and when I found L.L. Bean was running a 10% off sale & $10 coupon for next purchase made it much easier to spend the cash.
