Helinox Chair Zero: $50 Off

One of our gear testers demonstrates how light the Chair Zero is on a windy day on the Dragon’s Back Trail in Hong Kong.

The Zero has a weight capacity of 265 lbs and, despite being so light, is still plenty comfortable and durable. While we tested it as a backpacking chair it can double as a car camping chair, too.

Currently the Zero is on sale for an impressive $50 off. This is the best price we’ve ever seen this chair go for.
