About this deal

We humans come in all sizes and shapes, so there’s no single chair that will be the most comfortable for every body. It’s also stable enough for my much larger frame to sit, but I haven’t sat continuously for more than a couple hours at a time. All i need to do now is to find same quality like this to replace the rest of my kit and ill be sorted. Most folks will have to decide between keeping their arms pinned to their sides inside or letting them hang to the outside of the straps.

Packed into a robust carry sack with a loop handle both at the top and side of the bag, the whole chair fits neatly inside. Short sides alleviate the weird arm placement issue and allow for wider hips to extend over the edge of the seat. It looks like something that would fit well on a carrier or in a pannier for a day out or a longer trip. That said, I've no idea how effective the Helinox Ground Sheet is and Chair Zero plus ground sheet is close to the weight of the Ground Chair. 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.The Monarch’s base has only one pole hub, versus the competitions’ dual-hubbed designs, and that hub is constructed from the same lightweight aluminum from which the poles are made, versus the bulkier nylon hubs that many of the other chairs utilize.

We also found that, when in the upright position, the Moonlite offers the best lower back support of any of the chairs we tested. Our comparably heavy friend TJ, as mentioned, also put many evenings on his Chair Zero with no issues before he upgraded to the Moonlite—strictly for comfort. Crazy Creeks and other sling-type models support the back to some degree, but they’re at least as bulky and heavy as most legged chairs. The zipper is functional, the material is sturdy, and the capacity is just right for the chair, making the frame and seat easy to stow.What’s more, the mesh breathes well, and the low-profile sides make it so wider hips can relax without being squeezed. Alternatively, one could place the chair legs on rocks or bits of bark to help disperse weight and prevent sinking. Maybe I got 2 particularly awkward ones but it was laughable trying to get the cover on and I actually pulled a muscle in my side and my much stronger girlfriend had to put them together, even she struggled and she does boxing twice a week. It is an OK interpretation if your only an infrequent user and don't plan on backpacking with it, it's more car camping weight.

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). The sturdy aluminium frames and durable fabric materials ensure they can handle rugged terrains and varying weather conditions, providing you with long-lasting performance. Though quite similar overall, each chair has unique characteristics that affect its overall comfort, stability, weight, and packed size. It’s also important that if a foot gets stuck in the dirt, you must check that the joints are properly seated if you move the chair. The Chair Zero is the smallest and most lightweight of Helinox’s chair models, weighing only 525 grams (1 pound, 2.Another clever use of the carry sack is to pack it with a jumper or jacket and you have an instant pillow for the night! In the reclined position, the decreased tension on those straps makes it more comfortable to rest the arms upon them. It also helps that I get a discount via the Caravan Club (other organisations also have discount arrangements). The mesh provides some air circulation but, more importantly, allows for a little extra stretch where it’s most needed—at the hips. Also, my previous chair burned up in the campfire, because the wind blew it into the flames, but with this mat, you can actually put like a boulder on it, to stop your chair blowing away.
