Rated 5 out of 5 by MD1024 Great chair - for some
This is a well designed, easy to assemble, incredibly compact and light weight chair -- easily fitting on or in the smallest of daypacks. Important note -- it's small in overall size, so not really suitable to "wide-load" individuals, and it's built rather close to the ground so it's not that good for those with movement limitations. But, it's the best ultralight, portable, packable chair for those of average size, and physical ability. Love it...

Rated 3 out of 5 by bioboy Tip over Backward.
Compact, lightweight, and surprisingly sturdy. Unfortunately I have a back that needs firm and upright support. This chair angles way back to the point where I felt I was always on the verge of tipping over. You can use it as a stool, but that is not restful. Also it does not support the upper back or neck so that part of your body will be constantly under stress. I suppose one could just slouch down. Best analogy is the angle of a bean-bag chair without the support.

I brought this as my "luxury item" on a 400 mile bike tour and man was I glad I did. It just made my trip so special and everyone on my trip tried it and loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by silvermaiden Great camp chair
this chair is light and easy to set up. I take mine on kayaking trips. It makes a great camp chair, not the most comfortable chair but better than standing or sitting on my kayak.

I purchased this chair for my husband since he is 6'8" and this one was the only which fit him. He had to guard it from our friends on our last backpacking trip!

This is the perfect chair for going to outdoor movies or sitting in the park. It's so lightweight, I can carry two in one hand! It fits in a backpack or tote. Very easy to assemble and take apart. We've gotten lots of compliments and inquiries from strangers about them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MassBackpacker The Helinox Chair
over memorial weekend some buddies and I went on a 3 day "men's survival weekend". Backpacking, camping and exploring. I was smart to bring along a chair, oh but not just any chair, the Helinox!
This is EXTREMELY lightweight, durable and when I say comfortable I mean WICKED COMFORTABLE!
Assembles in less than 15 seconds....and disassembles just as easy. Also comes in a carry case similar in size to a small traveling toiletry bag.
In short, this is the best $80 you'll spend! My buddies had to either sit on the ground or a tree limb....but I was cool enough to share my chair when their backsides needed a break.
Trust me on this, any hiking or backpack trip needs this chair. My buddies will be buying one for our next trip and my next purchase is the Helinox table.
You can thank me later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBreviewet Awesome
This is an awesome chair. It is very well constructed and compact. I bought the Helinox Chair One for my boyfriend. He travels on megabus from Alabama to visit me in Texas about once a month. There are often long layovers in places with no where to sit for hours. When he took the chair out of his carry on bag at the first 4 hour layover after receiving the chair, all the other people waiting thought it was awesome. The joints and seat cover are sturdy and well constructed. It only takes a few moments to assemble or disassemble. He has only used it on flat surfaces so not sure how stable it is in a camping situation. He loves it! Worth the extra money compared to other chair reviews I looked at before this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cadmanpilot Big Agnes Helinox Chair One
This is a really great chair. It was exactly what I wanted in a lightweight chair. It is really comfortable even at my 74 inch height. I even let a friend try it out (230 lbs) and it was plenty strong. I purchased it with a 20% off coupon that reduced the $99 price to a more reasonable $79 - the same as comparable lightweight chairs on the market. This chair is superior to the others in size, height, and comfort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dirtylew04240 Comfortable
This chair is extremely comfortable. The only drawback is that you have to have perfectly flat terrain in order to use this. The feet are rather skinny and if you are on a surface that isn't flat, you will tip over. Getting past that issue, comfort is what you always strive for in a chair. It is extremely portable and sets up and takes down in a snap. I highly recommend this product!
