Lightweight Camp Chairs

Super Compact

Small pack size is feature common to all Helinox chairs. Across each field of application Helinox chairs are the most compact available.

For those wanting to carry a chair in a backpack, Chair Zero has a packed length just 35 cm and weighs only 510 grams. Ground Chair tips the scales at 640 grams and a compact packed length of 30 cm.

If carrying gear in a vehicle is more your style, you'll find Sunset Chair and Camp Chair to be less than half the packed length of typical quad-fold camping chairs.

Lightweight Camp Chairs

What's your activity?


Chair Zero is so light & compact you'll barely notice it in your pack. Ground Chair doubles as a geat hiking chair and the perfect seat for outdoor festivals that restrict chair height.

Two wheel touring

Whether your cycle is engine-powered or human-powered, Chair One is the original and best choice for portable comfort on a bike tour. Chair Two gives the option of slightly wider & deeper seat with a higher back.

Four wheel touring

Why carry bulky camp chairs that chew up space in the SUV or RV? Sunset Chair and Camp Chair will save space and weight in your vehicle while providing a comfortable rest at the end of the day. Chair One L (Large) and Chair One XL (Extra Large) are also suitable options.

Follow the action

Swivel Chair's unique base rotates through 360 degrees, enabling you to follow the action at a sporting event, keep an eye on the wildlife, or refer to the view you're sketching.

Follow the sun

Beach Chair is a special adaptation of Sunset Chair. The splayed legs are designed to work on sand. The lower seating position enables you to sun your legs while taking a nap!

Just for Kids

The little ones should have their own comfortable seat too. Chair One Mini is perfect for children ages to 2 to 6. Made from the same quality materials as all other Helinox gear, Chair Mini is a gift built to last.
