Kit Focus – Helinox Chair Seat Warmer and Vibram Ball Feet

Helinox Chair Set Warmer and Vibram Ball Feet
A few months back I reviewed the fantastic Helinox Chair Zero. The super lightweight camping chair has fast become a vital accessory for all my adventures by land or sea; supplying comfort and relaxation after strenuous challenges.

This product is near perfect for its intended use, but I recently discovered two additions that can improve its functionality and comfort even further: the Helinox Vibram Ball Feet—to stop the chair sinking into soft ground; and the Helinox Seat Warmer—for extra comfort in colder temperatures.

Vibram® Ball Feet (45 mm)

I have been using the Helinox Chair Zero for kayaking and hiking adventures; it is perfect for beach stopovers and resting your legs with a flask of coffee at the top of a big hill. The problem I discovered a few times on such rest stops though, was that I had a bit of a sinking feeling…

I am not a heavyweight, but on soft sand and mud there is a tendency for the feet of your Helinox chair to sink into the ground; something that makes it even harder to pull yourself back onto your feet and continue your adventures!

Helinox partnered with renowned grip manufacturers Vibram to produce the new Ball Feet. These four balls easily slip onto the feet of the Helinox chairs and increase the contact area with the ground; reducing the chance of sinking in and getting stuck. Helinox also produce a Ground Sheet that achieves a similar aim of increasing the chair's contact area; but I opted for the feet because they are easier to clean and do not absorb water.

The Ball Feet are also ideal if you want to use the chair inside a tent or on an indoor floor; as they avoid marking and scratching that might occur with the standard plastic feet.

These are a fantastic addition to improve the practicality of the Helinox Chair Zero.

Just when you thought it did not get any more luxurious than having a camping chair with you for your mid-adventure stops; well now you can have a padded and insulated camping chair, with the Helinox Seat Warmer

The Helinox Chair Seat Warmer is a neat cover that fits over your Helinox camping chair; suppling padding, insulation, and draft exclusion for those chillier stopovers. It packs up small in its own stuff sack, weighs just 500 grams, and it is machine washable thanks to the synthetic insulation.

A superb comfort addition to the Helinox chair range.
