The best chair I have...

The best chair I have tried so far it is very comfortable chair and the chair sets up quirk it is light and easy to pack.

I do a lot of...

I do a lot of research/reflection before buying most of my gear. I don't mind spending a little more money, if I can see that a product is well designed, the craftsmanship is high and the product makes sense within my personal use. Usually this time researching saves me money in the end because it results in more use, comfort and the product just lasts longer. The Helinox Sunset Chair fall into this area. A couple of years ago i purchased the Helinox one chair which is lighter and used it alot, great chair super light and tuff. I was really impressed by it. Well along came the Helinox Sunset chair, it is a little heavier, (not much), but not for backpacking, but it has comfort in spades. The chair is a little higher off the ground and has a higher back, which I can say is close to perfection in the way the body fits into it. It is now my favorite chair the take canoeing/kayaking, or car camping. Yes it is expensive compared to regular outdoor folding chairs, but just sit in it or carry its super light weight and you will see that this chair is light years better than the rest. Enjoy.

The Helinox Sunset Chair...

The Helinox Sunset Chair is a taller version of the Camp One. Both the seat and the back are taller.

PROS:
Very light, easy to assemble, fairly comfortable.

CONS:
The back is somewhat narrow and tight in the rib area.
The feet sink into the ground pretty badly.
Expensive

To remedy the second problem Helinox came out with a set of feet and a ground mat. Both of them add $25 to the price of an already very expensive chair. I use wiffle balls on the legs, works fine but the balls don't fit in the bag.

Excellent addition to a paddle camping trip or day trip. Pair it with the Helinox Table One for ultimate camping comfort.
