Contrasting with Helinox’s minimalist chair Zero, the Sunset Chair puts a premium on support and comfort with an elevated back and a broad, cradle-like seating. Overall, it’s a top-quality and exceptionally comfortable camp chair made to last. It has an aluminum frame that is durable and sturdy, as well as a dense polyester/mesh seats with a shock cord. The design allows for quick assembly and lets the chair be packed down in a compact size. With a weight of 3 pounds 4.8 pounds, it’s heavy and bulky to take to backpacking trips for long periods of time However, this Sunset is well-built that is simple to remove and store away, and has great neck and upper back support for those who need it.

The main drawback of the Helinox Sunset’s style is that it doesn’t have features like a pockets or cup holders making stowing drinks and other electronics difficult. Helinox does offer a few enjoyable accessories, including the sunshade, groundsheet as well as cup holders however the chair itself is expensive at $170. It’s enough to knock the Helinox lower in our list of top picks However, it’s still an excellent choice that manages weight and comfort as well as the many campers who love the sling-style design which makes it easy to get comfortable in. For a similar-looking model with a little higher (20 inches.) seat-to-ground height and lighter weight, take a look at Big Agnes The Big Six.
