UOG TOP PICK - Helinox Ground Chair - Lightest - We've singled out Helinox's Ground Chair as one of our top recommendations because its the lightest chair we've found. It may be low to the ground but its only 622g, that's carry-able, even on backpacking trips.
The Ground chair offers 'back resting'comfort in a minimalist package. Made out of the ultra lightweight DAC TH72 aluminum alloy with an easy to clean seat. Weighing only 622 grams with a weight capacity of 120 kilo’s, there is no reason to leave your chair at home anymore.
Each year during the ISPO, 60 judges from 13 countries and 3 continents are awarding the most outstanding sports articles with an ISPO AWARD. A jury of independent professionals of the sports articles industry evaluates several hundreds of potential candidates, according to predefined criteria, including non-exhibitors.The Helinox Ground Chair has been awarded as WINNER of the 2014 ISPO Award in the Outdoor Segment, category Adventure Equipment.
Helinox's Ground Chair is fantastic because its a fully supportive chair that's only 622g, on a long hike a chair that will support your back is a real luxury, and will be worth carrying for some people. It also packs down quite small so there should be room for it in your pack.
If I was buying a chair for base camp I'd choose one of the models with longer legs.
