Why We Like It

The Big Agnes Helinox Beach Chair hits the sweet spot of comfort, durability, and portability. It is one of the few packable models that offers neck support, with the stuff sack even converting to a pillow and attaching to whatever height you need. A smart base pole design prevents the chair from sinking down into the sand easily. Packs down to about the size of two Nalgene bottles into the included stuff sack.

Asa true beach chair design, this chair sits low – which is an aspect I love, however it may not be for everyone. The absence of pockets or a cub holder isn't ideal, and setting up the chair can take some practice – so read through the instructions to prevent any headaches!
