The Helinox Swivel chair is a lightweight (1.280kg) chair that allows easy set-up and is very useful for looking around as it really does swivel. Ideal on bush walks, bird walks or even just sitting down somewhere, and if you are camping this really would be invaluable. We have used it on some of our tours and found it very portable and useful. Recommended.
