Chair One

with Chair One we have the comfort we missed for a long time.

Marcus & Heidi are on an epic around-the-world cycling adventure. While in Australia they discovered Chair One. "We camp the most of the time and we missed always something. Chair One was the missing piece for us."

An icon of lightweight design

Offering never-seen-before levels of strength, comfort and compactness, Chair One has revolutionised the camping chair market since its introduction in 2012. Now considered a true icon of lightweight design, Chair One continues to win the hearts of walkers, cyclists, sea kayakers, pilots, adventure motorcyclists and outdoor adventurers throughout Australia and New Zealand.

The secret to Chair One's success?

The very best materials:

  • Advanced DAC alloy for the frame.
  • High-strength nylon hubs.
  • Premium seat fabrics and reinforcing panels.
  • Strong & durable stitching. 

Clever design features:

  • Packed length of just 35 cm.
  • Linking the frame sections with elastic shock-cord means the chair almost assembles itself.
  • Frame is designed with an amount of 'flex' so it can mould itself to your body shape.
  • Carry bag can be attached to frame for storage.
  • Webbing ladder and two large loops on the carry bag for easy attachment to a backpack, bicycle, motorcycle, etc.
  • Optimum comfort from such a compact package.

Great accessories:

  • The optional Ground Sheet prevents the legs from sinking into sand or soft ground.
  • The optional Seat Warmer is filled with duck feather and keeps you warm and cosy on cool nights around the camp fire. 
  • Optional 'Rocking Foot One' is a removable rocker accessory that converts Chair One to a rocking chair. Has the added benefit of allowing the chair to tilt forwards – handy when tending a stove on the ground.
  • A set of 4 removable 'Ball Feet' is available to help prevent legs from sinking in muddy ground. Ball Feet are easier to clean than a Ground Sheet in this situation.
Chair One

Lived off the bike, and used the chair and table pretty much every day

Phil took his Chair One and Ultralight Table on a 3 week motorcycle adventure through VIC, SA and NSW. The durability, compact size and comfort level makes Helinox equipment essential gear for adventure riding.

Award Winning Comfort

Chair One was voted the best outdoor adventure accessory at Munich ISPO in January 2013. ISPO is the major international showcase of quality outdoor adventure equipment with over 2,000 exhibiting participants and a judging panel of 57 independent experts from 14 different nations.

The most prestigious recognition of design excellence is Europe's "Red Dot" award. Helinox Chair One was acknowledged as an outstanding quality innovation in July 2013 and will now be an exhibit at the International Design Museum Singapore.

But the most important 'votes' are those of thousands of Australians who've choosen Chair One – making it Australia's most popular compact camp chair.
