Chair Zero REVIEWS

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A good rest during a long hike helps restore your energy. A chair isn't a luxury item if the increased stamina and overall enjoyment exceeds the minimal weight added to your pack. Our Chair Zero packs smaller than a water bottle and weighs just 1 lb. No need to sacrifice comfort when there's a lightweight chair that delivers durable support when you need it most.

Chair Zero is the lightest portable chair Helinox makes. It's low to the ground with slightly smaller seat dimensions, making it the perfect companion when keeping your pack weight down is essential. Chair One weighs 1lb more than the Zero, but offers the versatility and added comfort of a higher profile.

The seat on Chair Zero is made from a lightweight fabric with non-stretch silver thread that forms a supportive framework while saving as much weight as possible. Don't worry: it's just as durable and easy to maintain as other Helinox models.

We didn't include a shoulder strap or handle on Chair Zero's bag in order to save some weight. For hand-free carry, the chair is small enough to fit neatly inside your pack or strapped to the outside.

Our Chair Zero measures 25 in high x 18.5 in wide assembled and holds up to 265 lbs (120 kilograms). It's also the smallest and lightest chair Helinox makes. While the seat depth is the same as our popular Chair One, the Zero's seat is slightly more narrow and sits lower to the ground.

For people looking for a taller and wider profile, we also offer a range of High-Back and Extra-Roomy chairs. All our chairs are made with the same durability, high quality materials, and lightweight design, so even our more spacious models are exceptionally compact and packable.

Chair Zero's seat is approximately 9 inches (23 cm) from the ground. The lower profile helps make the Zero our smallest and lightest chair, which is especially important when keeping your pack weight down is essential.

For people looking for more height, we also offer a range of High-Back and Extra-Roomy chairs. All our chairs are made with the same durability, high quality materials, and lightweight design, so even our more spacious models are exceptionally compact and packable.

At Helinox, we refer to 'low profile' chairs as those that sit closer to the ground. A lower seat height is one of the ways we save weight in our Ultra Lightweight models like Chair Zero and Chair One.

We also offer High-Back and Extra-Roomy chairs for people who would prefer the added support of a higher seat.
