Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beach Bound I purchased this chair after sitting in a friends Helinox Zero chair. Thats the original version of the chair. I purchased the "beach chair" version because my only complaint with the Zero was that your head wasn't supported. The beach chair allows you to lean back comfortably. I've even been able to take a nap in it. Some people complained about how low to the ground it is but that doesn't bother me. Its easy enough to get in and out of. The only downside is that while it folds up and is easy to assemble, its too big to take on backpacking trips if you're counting ounces. I use it car and paddle board camping where the larger pack size doesn't matter so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great chair This chair was very expensive (hence, only 4 stars...) but I bought 2 to take on a road trip to both beach and mountains. The chairs are very light and easy to pack and set up. The best part about them is the fact that they support your head and neck so you can snooze in the sun! They sit very close to the ground and are a little hard to get up from if you are as old and out of shape as I am!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth every dime we vacation to the remote out islands of the Bahamas where beaches are beautiful but primitive and lack amenities. we are also strictly "carry-on" travelers. The folded size, the comfort, the ease of set up, stability in the sand, hit the mark and set the bar so high i don't think they can be beat! we used these chairs many times on five different beaches, some hike into, some down a small trail, super convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Helinox high back chairs We have purchased 2 now, one for me & my wife. Lightweight enough for backpack trips & extremely comfortable! Go for it, well worth the $$!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable!!! I bought this in a rush last month before a hastily planned camping trip. I'd never even heard of Helinox before- anyway, point being, this is the most comfortable camp chair my butt has ever had the pleasure of gracing. Setup is pretty easy and the shock cord really helps keep everything together. I really don't know how they were able to make such a comfortable chair with such little weight. I'm roughly 5'11 and 185 pounds and it easily accommodates my derrière while still being quite stable. Expensive yes, but worth the money if you ask me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended I bought it for dual-sport motorcycle camping, and I just received it. Thus far, I can say that it fits in my bikes panniers. I did a significant amount of research amongst motorcycle folk before I hit the purchase button and did so because it was highly rated amongst that crowd. More to come.....

How high (or low) is the bottom of the seat compared to the Camp X chair? Thanks.

Asked by: HEgger
On flooring, this chair stands 4 inches off the ground, and at the beach it stands 1-2 inches off the sand. The lowest point on the REI Camp X Chair seat is about 12.25 inches off the ground.

The description states that the storage sack converts into a pillow. How does it do that? Does it use padded areas or would I use clothes? Also, is there a carry strap? Thanks in advance!

Asked by: Jennifer 1
The storage sack for the Beach Chair converts into a pillow by stuffing the storage sack with clothing. There is no carry strap on the storage sack.

Is there a bar across the front of the chair that runs under your legs? Or is the front of the chair just cloth?

Asked by: tkw
There is not a bar across the front of the seat on the Helinox Beach Chair , only fabric.
