I bought one of these last year for a 2 day bimble round Scotland last year, pi55ed down all week so I never got there.

Happened to walk into the new Blacks in Sheffield today, and they have the Helinox one still at 60.

Surprisingly comfortable for such a small chair, more comfortable than the Vango equivalent which looked exactly the same, and packs much smaller too.

Expensive but definitely one I would go for.

I've had one of those Chinese helinox copies for about 3 years now, it's been everywhere and seen alot of use. Still works great and is super comfy. As said previous it does flex and is a low reclined kind of seat, but nothing on it has broken.

Mine was the 1st copy with super small feet. I bought some cheap rubber walking stick grips and put them on the feet.

The newer ones come with bungees that attach to the feet so you can't lose them.

I've used one of these for over a year now. It's been sat on countless times and is one of the best buy's I have made for my many camping trips. Love it!

After using the Vango tall chair I can say it was utter luxury, more like a deck chair I even fell asleep in it after a few beers  :thumb: packs down and very lightweight; it's more comfortable than most sturdier camping chairs I have had the displeasure of sitting on

I liked it so much I have purchased the microlite table to go with it so I can put my beer bottle on it week after next as I am going back for a short hop to Saumur for more castles and sun (hopefully).

For the feet you could use motorcycle pucks for stands, can normally pick these up for free at a lot of the BSB meets.
