The Helinox Chair Zero is probably the most beloved lightweight camping chair among hikers who pay attention to the weight of their kit.

The reason for this is that when it was introduced, it was the lightest “real” chair on the market. At just around a pound, it still offered all of the benefits and features of a comfortable chair, including an off-the-ground seat, a suspended seat that cradled your back and hips, a supportive backrest, and enough height so that your feet settled on the ground well below your hips.
