Ultra Lightweight Chairs

These low-profile chairs, our lightest and most packable, offer comfort that’s seldom available in the backcountry and are available in designs that fit right in at home.

Their streamlined design makes them exceptionally compact, so these foldable chairs fit easily into your pack, making them ideal for backpacking and other outdoor adventures like mototouring, kayak tours, or day hiking. And they’re easy to store at home – fitting easily in a closet or under your bed.

Streamlined designs, serious performance

Created with lower backs to minimize material weight, all of our ultralight chairs focus on shaving every gram possible while providing support.

Some are made for backpacking, others deliver expanded versatility by striking a balance between comfort and lightweight design, and some are created to compliment your home’s distinct style.

All are packable, can weigh as little as 18 ounces, and feature advanced materials, minimalist design, and durable construction.

Chair Zero: Our lightest ever

Our lightest chair ever, Chair Zero is made for backpacking but ready for anything.

Weighing just 17.6 ounces, holding up to 260lbs, and packing smaller than a water bottle, Chair Zero is exceptionally light and compact, yet delivers impressive support and strength.

Chair One:
The original One

The original icon of lightweight design, Chair One is our most versatile lightweight chair – you’ll want to take it everywhere! With a larger profile that offers more support than Chair Zero, our original chair is the ultimate combination of comfort, lightweight packability and refined design.

Chair One Mini:
Just the essentials

What if Chair One was scaled down to provide just the essentials – a stable base for your rear end, some lower back support and a little side cushioning? The result is Chair One Mini. A ridiculously compact portable chair that will still give comfort for hours at a time!

Light and strong

Our frames are exclusively built with ultra-lightweight and exceptionally strong DAC aluminum alloy poles. This advanced pole technology was developed for expedition-level backpacking tents and is trusted and relied on by the world’s most discerning adventurers. Helinox is the only furniture brand to use DAC aluminum alloy poles. Hubs and joining components are molded using a high-strength nylon and engineered for maximum precision to create solid, secure pole attachments.

Durable comfort

We’ve designed our seats to deliver as much support and comfort as possible while maintaining minimal weight and bulk. The seat height supports your back, even with our low profile ultra lightweight chairs, and the design wraps around your body to cup it comfortably.

Award-winning design

Simplicity is difficult. It takes discipline to pare our chairs to their essential components, but it is the path we choose so we can create the lightest most packable chairs we can. You can only create a chair that weighs less and packs smaller than a water bottle if you are creative, demanding, and disciplined. This discipline has been rewarded with many industry and global design awards.
