Collaborated on by DAC, the leading manufacturer of tent poles, Helinox® products incorporate many of the advanced features and quality found in DAC tent poles.
“What’s so special about DAC tent poles?” we hear you ask…
Unlike every other tube manufacturer, DAC has developed the material and the process together. This gives DAC several advantages. The first advantage comes from DAC’s development of its own custom aluminum alloy, TH72M, which is found on the Chair One. The second advantage comes from DAC’s years and years of experimentation and development of rigorous production process controls. So it’s no surprise that the tubes from DAC, whether for tents or for chairs or other things, are genuinely the highest performance tubes in the world today.
The optional Helinox Rocking Foot One feet that convert Chair One to a rocking chair are available.
Because of this incredible manufacturing, the Helinox chair one, despite weighing under 1kg, can hold a max load of up to 145 kg! A breathable mesh on back and sides saves seat sweat on a hot day as you’re able to still enjoy the slight cooling breeze without sweating into the chair itself. Easy to pack and set up, Helinox are so confident in their product that they will even secure a 5 year warranty with every purchase.
