Helinox One Chair

Postby BeeKeeper » 17 Apr 2013, 2:41pm

I have been after one of these chairs since reading about them on this forum but they were out of stock for some time. However, they are now back and mine arrived today. I am very impressed as it is much sturdier than I had anticipated. I suspect the only drawback (apart from my wife wanting one now and no cup holder for my after-cycling glass of wine) are the feet are a bit narrow so I suspect they will sink into any ground which is not pretty firm. http://www.ultralightoutdoorgear.co.uk/ ... r_one.html (Other suppliers are available but all are at more or less the same price as far as I can determine)

How about 4 plastic milk bottle lids to spread the weight to avoid sinking in the soft?

I find that milk bottle tops work fine with my chair.
