Helinox Outdoor Adventure Equipment

Postby Helinox Australia » Thu 24 Mar, 2016 9:32 am

Hi Everyone,

It must be about time we made an official contribution to this forum!

We sell a range of walking poles, compact camp chairs, camp stretchers, umbrellas and tent pegs.

All Helinox gear is engineered using an advanced alloy called 'TH72M' from DAC. Weight for weight, this alloy is 30% stronger than aircraft grade aluminium and allows us to make the world's lightest & strongest alloy tubing.

The hubs on our chairs and stretchers are formed from Nylon 66, a very hardy and strong material. All fabrics are premium quality too.

For the Australian & New Zealand markets we've elected not to sell via the usual retailers. We sell direct via our website (helinox.com.au) or over the phone. This keeps the price down and we can provide better service and support.

We now have 5 camp chairs in our range with more to come later this year. There are 10 models of walking poles to choose from and 3 different camp stretchers.

A 5 year warranty applies to all our products and if you're not 100% happy for any reason, you can return your purchase for a full refund.

Cheers
Andrew

I've been extremely happy with my helinox chairs and walking poles, which I stumbled across on the net some years ago.

i've been using Helinox tent pegs and the TL125 poles for several years and have nothing but praise for them. I'm yet to bend a peg, and the poles have had a huge amount of use and abuse and are still going strong. Every time i have ordered a product i have received it 2 or 3 days later.

Highly recommended.

Wouldn't be without my Chair One for my cycle tours.

I'm looking forward to getting one of the umbrellas for this winter

Me too.
As the back and knees get more and more rickety the chair makes campsite life so much more comfortable.
Tons better than the old tripod stool and I don't mind the insignificant weight in my kit.

I got a ground chair and decided to test it by sitting in it in the living room. Where it still is, being sat in every day.

Very comfortable indeed for me at 5'2" and the getting up from the low chair several times a day does my leg muscles no end of good.

On both bicycle and motorcycle tours it has been lovely: quick to pack and unpack, compact, comfortable. And because it is so low no other *&%$#! tries to sit in it!

Ground Chair or Chair One??

I was thinking Chair One but the Zero is tempting.

I'm guessing the Chair One would be more durable?? I wish I had taken more notice of the chairs two guys pulled out at Echo Hut.

Not sure how much they will get used for hiking but as we need to save space in our overland rig these look just right.

Given we have to downsize from a 4 bed room house into one car which we will be living out of for 12 months along with hiking it seems the way to go.

Camp Chair is probably getting a little too big to carry in the pack.

Advice??

Ive got a groundchair. Its great, just enough to kick back on. The newest slightly lighter model is also a bit smaller so not sure if I'd find it comfortable.

We have Chair Ones they are very good but the 300 grams less would win me over for the Chair Zero if we were buying now. The ground chair wouldn't be my cup of tea.

Just went to order 2 x Zero's and they out of stock until June....that's half the hiking season gone.

I see there are knock off of the one but cannot find any zero's, in saying that I would much prefer to purchase helinox.

I picked the Groundchair (before there was a Zero) it's leg shape won't sink into the ground. Has been good.
