Featuring lightweight, compact frames, both chairs are acclaimed for their blend of strength, versatility, and packability. However, Chair Zero is superior when it comes to compactness and Chair One takes an edge in comfort with its slightly larger dimensions. 


Chair Zero and Chair One are both designed to cater to a wide range of users, but Chair One stands out in terms of weight capacity, supporting up to 320 pounds. This superior capacity is owed to its utilization of bluesign®-certified and recycled 600D polyester fabric, renowned for its strength and durability.


Both chairs offer exceptional portability, ready to accompany you on any adventure. However, weighing in at just over one pound, Chair Zero claims the title of the lightest portable chair available. With an ultralight frame, lower seat profile, high-tenacity aramid ripstop fabric, and even screen printed logos to eliminate unnecessary weight, its the ultimate choice when every ounce counts. 

When it comes to packing up, Chair Zero slides into a sleek cinch bag. Chair One packs into a full case with a convenient daisy chain and webbing handle.
