BOTTOM LINE: If portability is important to you, the Helinox Chair Zero is one of the best options on the market. It only weighs a pound, and it folds up into a stuff sack about the size of a water bottle. We even take ours on backpacking trips when comfort is a priority. The nylon scoop seat supports your back in a slightly reclined position, and it’s just the right height for your legs to extend comfortably. If you’re looking for maximum portability without compromising comfort, we highly recommend the Helinox Chair Zero. There’s also a Highback version now — it’ll cost you a bit more, but it’s even more comfortable and supportive.
