- Best backpacking chair for bigger people
Likes: This is the best weight to comfort ratio backpacking chair at the time of this writing. The chair itself weighs approximately 2 lbs and has a weight capacity over 300 lbs. The end of the front poles are 13 inches off the ground so your knees aren’t in your chest.
Dislikes: If I weighed less, I would probably buy the Helinox Chair Zero because it is only 1 lb—that’s the one I bought for my wife. I gave this chair 4 stars because Helinox needs some incentive to make better chairs, but it really is a great chair.
- Wonderful Product
Likes: The chair has a good height for easy access in both sitting down and getting back up. It is extremely lightweight and easy to setup.
Dislikes: Upon first setup the seat material was very tight and took some muscle to setup. I'm hoping that with time it will loosen up a bit and allow me to setup with ease.
- Slightly heavier than claimed, but SO comfortable
Likes: - As comfortable as a living room couch
- Packs away easily, travel bag is large enough for easy stuffing, unlike REI Flex Lite
- Very durable. I purchased this 2 years ago, and used it plenty. Still looks like new.
Dislikes: - Weighs 938g on my scale (33.1oz)
- If you try one, you'll buy one.
Likes: This is the one "luxury" item I bring with me in the backcountry. My buddies initially scoffed at the idea of bringing a chair, but when they were sitting on a wet log or the ground and I wasn't..... They have all since purchased a Helinox of their own. I'm 185 lbs and it holds me with no problem. Being able to get off your feet after a long day is a huge benefit.
Dislikes: Takes up extra room in the pack. It's a little larger than a standard roll of paper towel.
- Excellent for motorcycle touring/camping
Likes: Compact, lightweight, easily set up, well constructed
Dislikes: The only complaint would be the tiny feet sink into soft ground.
