Join us for this double review of two different styles of lightweight backpacking and camping chairs. We purchased some his and hers chairs. Stacie chose the Nemo Moonlite Elite. At 1 lb 2 oz, this chair can’t be beat for lightweight. It retails for $179.95 at REI. Features include aluminum hubs, reclining back, and a capacity of 250 pounds. The seat is a bit wider, for added comfort.

Vince chose the trusty Helinox Chair Two, weighing in at 2 lbs 8 oz. It retails for $139.95, but this model was on Last Call Clearance for $97.97. It has a high back and pockets on the sides for easy stowing of a phone or other small items. It has a capacity of 320 pounds. Since he got a deal, Vince also purchased a high back seat warmer for $44.96, also on sale in the Last Call Clearance section. It weighs 10 oz, and is a synthetic quilted material.

We are looking forward to getting out camping this spring with our new backpacking chairs!
