Description

When set up, the 10cm x 10xm seat gives plenty of room for you to perch on and is perfect for those quick tea breaks. But, for many folks, the comfort of a reclining chair that offers good back support will easily make hauling the 939 grams (2 pounds, 1 ounce) well worth the effort. The cut of the hammock and the pole design also create a deeper seat than is found in most other models, which makes the user feel supported and unlike they will slip out of the chair. Nemo provides the most back support and a confident secure feeling, but Virginia found some discomfort in that the buttocks rests on the poles when fully upright, and the edge on the tightening straps rubs the arms. She finds the REI to be a little more comfortable because the bucket seems to have a slightly higher front seat edge to buttocks height ratio, and keeping the butt down and knees higher takes a little pressure off of the back.

For others, specific circumstances of the bikepacking journey determine what are and what aren’t essential items that deserve a spot on the pack list. However very well made, very comfortable, love the colour and if they loosen up a bit they will ideal as they take up very little space in my camper and fairly light weight as well. Per Backbone Media’s May 2021 article in the Outside Buisiness Journal, Alite products will be rebranded and then made available to purchase sometime next year.The difference between genuine Helinox and the cheap copies is that the copies use generic aluminium tubing rather than DAC, so the weight limit tends to be around 100-110 kg, rather than the 130 kg that Helinox quote, and that, when cutting costs, quality control is one of the first things to be cut back on, so there's a higher chance of failure due to something like bad stitching on a corner pocket. What’s more, the mesh breathes well, and the low-profile sides make it so wider hips can relax without being squeezed. We inspire and inform through original bikepacking routes, stories, and coverage of the gear, news, and events that make our community thrive.

This sub is about overnight backcountry backpacking, with a focus on moving efficiently, packing light, generally aiming at a sub 10 pound base weight, and following LNT principles. The extra flex that the mesh seat offers allows it to stretch in the reclined position, but in the most upright position, it causes enough of a sink that the back of the thighs rest on the front legs of the chair. The chair has been used during weekend camping trips, day trips to the beach, at several backyard cookouts, and pulled out of the trunk at the trailhead when I’m back at the car after a strenuous hike (I love sitting it in to take my sweaty boots off and enjoy a moment of rest before getting back in the car). With their lightweight and portable design, comfortable seating, and durability, these camping essentials offer the perfect mix of functionality and usability.Although many of us are dogmatic minimalists, we also recognize the importance of creature comforts while bikepacking. Logan’s a big fan of the Helinox Chair Zero and finds it pretty comfy as long as you’re on flat ground and can keep the legs from sinking. While not a big deal, I mention this because it’s the only chair this has happened to me with, and it’s happened more than once.

The chair has a great design where all the components are wrapped up together in a tough fabric carry sack. It's easy to put together and we love the fact that it can all be packed back down into a portable carry sack. The small feet are apt to sink into soft surfaces, but Helinox has additional stability accessories available for purchase to increase surface area. For some of the diehard gram counters, racers, and masters of efficiency in our community, that’s every time they load their bikes.

It would be a shame if it is discontinued as I find it great (but I've already got one so does not affect me). Was tight to assemble first time as many reviews highlight but mine is now more than a year old and is fine.
