Helinox Ground Chair for camping

Written by Fiona

June 20 2016

Here’s my photo video review of the Helinox Ground Chair.

  • The Helinox Ground Chair is lightweight.
  • It packs into a small and easily transportable bag.
  • It is made with aluminium alloy poles that quickly fasten together.
  • From start to chair set takes only one minute.
  • The chair fabric is strong and supportive.
  • The chair looks like it will be long-lasting.
  • It’ a comfy seat although…
  • You do need to be flexible enough to sit low on the ground… And get back up again.
  • It’s not ideal for big bottoms or heavyweight folk.
  • It’s brilliantly portable and I have used it a lot for camping trips already.
  • SRP £85 from UK stockists. More details at
