A fantastic chair!!

The construction quality is fantastic, it’s lightweight and compact but it doesn’t feel flimsy in any way. One thing I didn’t expect is how stable it is! My cat is (as all cats are) quite cautious of unstable surfaces but she gladly slept on it when I left it setup in the livingrooom

Compact and Sturdy

I love this chair! It travels with me on my motorcycle. It fits nicely in my side bag. It’s comfortable and sturdy. I’ve had friends try it out and they have ordered after they use it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Chair Zero is perfect for carrying on two feet. It's the lightest portable chair Helinox makes. The trade-off is some comfort – the seat lacks the mesh ventilation panels of Chair One and some people find it a little tight around the hips. Chair Zero also sits a little lower to the ground than Chair One. If you don't mind carrying the extra weight, Chair One is the perfect all-rounder. However when weight is critical, Chair Zero is the only way to go.

Chair One's bag includes a carry loop at each end. Most Chair One cases (style dependent) also feature a webbing ladder. An optional Shoulder Strap accessory can be attached to the carry loops for easy over-the-shoulder transport. When setting up the chair, the carry bag loops can be placed over the lower seat poles before attaching the seat. This means the bag won't get lost and it can be used as a handy storage compartment under the seat.

Chair One supports 320 pounds or 145 kilograms.

The lowest part of Chair One's seat is approximately 10.5 inches or 27 cm off the ground.

At Helinox we refer to 'low profile' chairs as those that sit you closer to the ground. A lower seated height is one of the ways we save weight in models like Chair Zero and Chair One. We also offer Sunset Chair and Savanna Chair for those that prefer a higher seat.

Seats and carry bags should be hand washed in warm water using a mild detergent. Seats and carry bags are not machine washable. Ensure fabric is completely dry before packing away for storage.

Your chair should be stored in its original carry bag in a dry location. Always ensure the chair is completely dry before placing into storage. Chairs should never be stored damp or wet.

Always start by fitting the seat to the upper rear poles. Then lay the chair on its back. Use your body weight to flex the lower seat poles into the pockets. Brand new seats can be a little tight but don't worry, they will stretch slightly with use.

All Helinox frames are anodized to protect against corrosion. However the anodized coating will be fighting a losing battle if you pack your chair away wet and leave it that way. So always ensure your chair is completely dry before storing it. If the frame is exposed to salt water, always rinse with fresh water and leave to dry before packing away for storage.

Yes! Shock-cord that gets damaged can be replaced to keep your Helinox chair active for many years.

We sell a number of accessories such as Ball Feet and Ground Sheets that prevent chair legs sinking in soft ground.

Helinox frames are made from an advanced high-tech aluminium alloy that offers the perfect blend of strength and minimal weight. This special alloy is a higher specification than aircraft-grade aluminium and goes through over 70 production processes from raw billet to finished pole section.

Hubs are made from high-strength, fibre-reinforced Nylon 66.

All Helinox products are backed by a 5 Year Warranty.
