Helinox Chair One

helinox chair oneWe were first introduced to the Helinox Chair One back in Rhonda, Spain by a cycle touring Dutch couple and we thought it looked like a very nice chair. However, at the time we had the Walkstool and were pleased with its performance. As we continued our journey across Portugal, Spain, and France we met other cycling tourists that were also using the Helinox Chair One and they all seemed to really like the chair and had no major complaints. By this time, we were barley using our Walkstools, preferring to just sit on the ground on our Thermarest Z-lite SOL mattresses, because we found the Walkstool to be not comfortable for extended use. So we decided to give the Helinox Chair One a try. We have now used the Helinox Chair One pretty extensively for more than 2 months and are very pleased with it.
