Unlike a tent and a sleeping bag, the camp chair is a piece of outdoor furniture that many of us are perfectly okay with leaving behind. For many, the most packable of them aren’t comfortable enough to warrant schlepping up the side of a mountain, and the most comfortable are too cumbersome for any campsite that’s too far from a vehicle. Enter Helinox’s Chair One: it weighs roughly two pounds and packs down smaller than many sleeping bags yet offers elevated seating (so your bum won’t freeze on the ground) and comfortable back support. Helinox achieved this by building the chair with folding aluminum DAC poles that come together just like the ones your tent uses. The seat is nylon and mesh.

With the Chair One, it doesn’t matter where you stand in regard to backcountry seating — if you hate camp chairs, this is the one to turn you; if you love them, here’s your upgrade. It’ll work for camping trips but can also handle outings to the neighborhood park and is perfect for outdoor concerts too. It’s also marked down by 44 percent — that’s $55 off — at Mountain Steals. In addition to the Chair One deal, Mountain Steals is offering discounts on more packable outdoor seating from Helinox; there’s a larger (and smaller) version of the Chair One, a rocking chair, a swivel chair and more.
