Hands-down, it’s one of the most popular chairs in the Helinox line-up–for good reason. The Sunset Chair sits high off the ground so it’s a breeze getting in and out, plus the supportive high-back design makes it a must for campers, glampers, loungers, and picnickers to take just about anywhere.

FEATURES

Comfortable
Longer leg poles make it easier to get in and out, and the high back adds increased neck and shoulder support.

Convenient features
Two pockets on one side. Reinforced corners hold and support. Headrest flap keeps a puffy jacket, soft pillow, even your chair case in place for more head support.

Portable
Compact, collapsible frame. Packs into a 48cm x 13cm x 12cm full zip case that has a daisy chain and webbing handle.

Lightweight yet strong
Weighs 1.6kg when packed up and can hold up to 145kg when assembled.

Advanced engineering
Proprietary DAC aluminium alloy frame and nylon resin hubs merge strength with durability.

Easy set-up
Shock-corded poles lock the frame into place.

Recycled high-performance fabrics
Bluesign®-certified and recycled 600D polyester is durable enough to withstand the elements. Mesh paneling provides ventilation and breathability.

Sunset Chair

I was disappointed to see that the cross section of aluminum is still riveted in place in this model. As my previous two Sunset Chairs broke at the rivet points, I would have thought this would have been improved and they would be glued in place instead of rivets like the opposition manufacturer does

Great chairs

The Sunset Chair is perfect for those who do not want a very low chair. I haven't come across any other chair that is so lightweight, yet sturdy enough & comfortable. A great addition to our beach gear. Thank you Helinox.

Sunset chair

Love this chair. The height means that it can be used at a camping table and the high back makes relaxing easy. Simple to put together. Just used it for 4 weeks in Tassie.

Sunset chair

Awesome addition to my Helinox collection. Don't have to be the only one sitting low any more.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Although these two chairs may look similar at a glance, they're actually very different. Chair Two is an evolution of Chair One. It shares the same seated height as Chair One, whereas Sunset Chair has a much taller seated height. The high-back on Chair Two works best for people 5 foot 7 inches (170 cm) and under. Sunset Chair features a taller 'high-back' that works well for taller people.

The high back on Sunset Chair features a padded cross-bar and offers a comfortable rest for your head. For added comfort, the carry bag (on most variants) can be filled with something soft and attached to the high back for use as a neck pillow. Simply open the velcro flap on the carry bag to expose the velcro section and attach this to the matching velcro on the seat back. The amount of padding and exact attachment point can varied to your personal preference. To up the comfort level even further, try the optional Air and Foam Headrest accessory.

Sunset Chair supports 320 pounds or 145 kilograms.

The lowest part of Sunset Chair's seat is approximately 14 inches or 36 cm off the ground.

Sunset Chair and Beach Chair are the same except for the legs. Beach Chair features splayed legs suitable for use on sand and therefore sits much lower than Sunset Chair.

We kept it simple with Sunset Chair and decided to offer a Cup Holder as an accessory.

Sunset Chair's seat is carefully tailored to provide support for the lower back. If this is an important consideration for you, choose a variant that includes mesh panels (Black, Blue Block, Red Block, etc) as the flexibility of the mesh provides even better lower back support.

Yes, with the optional Rocking Feet accessory.

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.
