HELINOX OUTDOOR ADVENTURE EQUIPMENT
"New generation" Helinox poles are stronger, lighter, easier to operate and more compact. We generally suggest fixed length super compact folding poles because they are even easier to operate, even lighter, even more compact when folded and they are also cheaper. You might prefer adjustable length poles. Our ultra lightweight LB130 is more technically advanced and simpler to adjust than anything else available. The FL120 is the lightest full strength adjustable pole available.
The world's first truly portable camp chair
Every outdoor adventurer has dreamed of a comfortable camp chair that is light enough and compact enough to carry in a backpack. It's now a reality. Luxury in the wilderness is now less than the weight of a litre of water: the Helinox Chair One.
Umbrellas can keep the rain off without wearing waterproof clothing that can restrict movement and create perspiration. Umbrellas can provide cooling shade and make a temporary shelter, but most umbrellas fall to bits when the going gets tough. Not so with the Helinox trekking umbrella - super tough and super light!
The Helinox J-Stake tent peg by DAC Featherlite is generally acclaimed as the world's best ultra lightweight tent peg and is standard equipment on all the best quality tents from Europe and the USA. Use these pegs for backpack camping on the week-end. Then have fun at work on Monday by challenging the office "macho man" to bend this amazingly strong piece of ultra lightweight engineering.

The new way of doing things - direct to the source
The world is shrinking. We're much better informed. We're more discerning in our choices. We rely more on recommendations from our friends than slick advertising campaigns. Quality and value are now more important than high pressure marketing "hype". The links between the people who make quality equipment and the people who use it are becoming more direct. We think that is all good!
We're part of the new breed. Helinox engages directly and personally with the people who actually use the equipment that we design and make. That provides the opportunity for you to have more say in how things are done and it means you pay less for the very best quality in the world. We rely on the superior quality and value of our products to generate sales through personal recommendations. The $$$ savings in distribution and advertising costs (often more than half the retail price) are passed on to you.
When you buy from this web site, you get immediate and personal attention. The goods are sent to you EXPRESS POST as soon as possible. If you order before lunch, you can expect to have your purchase delivered to you the next day (in metro areas). We use Australia Post for your convenience - we can deliver to your post office box or to your local post office for extra security.
We understand that buying unseen goods by phone or internet has some limitations. We know our equipment is the best, but if it isn't what you'd expected, just send it back for a full refund. We only ask that the goods are unused and you do that within a reasonable time (a week or so) - we think that's fair.
What's so special about Helinox?
Outdoor equipment must be functional and reliable. It must also be strong and very light. That's where Helinox leads the world. Helinox equipment is engineered by the world leader in advanced high strength alloys - DAC Featherlite. DAC has been leading the world in lightweight alloy technology for more than twenty years. All the best lightweight tents in Europe and the USA feature DAC poles and pegs as standard equipment because they are universally regarded as the very best - the strongest and the lightest. You will find the DAC logo on the best brands wherever ultra lightweight strength is required - trekking poles, backpacks etc.
DAC developed the amazing material - TH72M - which is the "significant point of difference" that makes Helinox equipment the strongest and lightest in the world. Helinox equipment is made from TH72M.
But the best material is only part of the story. We've operated at the very centre of the outdoor adventure industry for more than 20 years. We've absorbed a huge amount of experience by working closely with the world's most active adventurers - some of whom work in our own design office. Our design engineers are the sharpest and the brightest. Helinox blends experience, innovative design and the world's most advanced material technology to lead the trends.
Helinox relies on personal recommendations for sales. Reputation is only built when equipment performs. Our customers take our equipment into the very toughest environments. Our focus is therefore on equipment design - function and reliability - rather than marketing, promotions and advertising. The discerning Australian and New Zealand outdoor adventurers have been quick to embrace this simple philosophy.
So welcome to the family!
We're serious about getting closer to you, the outdoor adventurer. Sometimes things can be done better. Sometimes things designed for use in Europe and the USA should be modified to better suit Australian conditions. Maybe you have an idea for a completely new product. We are innovators, not followers, so please share your thoughts with us.
