Although these two chairs may seem similar at a glance, there are some key differences.

Our Sunset Chair is designed for total relaxation. It sits higher off the ground and features a taller back for added support. The model also comes in a variety of ventilated seat covers for those warm, sunny days.

Chair Two is closer to the ground and tends to be most comfortable for people 5' 7" (179 cm) and under. It's a great mid-range option for adventure-seekers looking for a lightweight, high-back alternative to our Chair One.

The high back on our Sunset Chair features a padded cross-bar that offers support for your head.

For added comfort, the carry bag (on most Sunset styles) can be filled with something soft, like a towel or jacket, and attached to the back for use as a neck pillow. Simply open the velcro flap on the bag and attach it to the matching velcro on the seat back. The amount of padding and exact attachment point can varied to your personal preference. To up the comfort level even more, try our Air and Foam Headrest.

Our Sunset Chair measures 39in h x 28.5in w assembled and comfortably supports up to 320 pounds (145 kilograms). It's also one of the most popular high back Helinox chairs and sits higher off the ground than some of our other models, making it perfect for longer limbs. Sunset is also compatible with a wide range of Accessories to maximize comfort.

For people looking for a wider profile or chairs with extra built-in features, we offer a range of Extra-Roomy and Beach-ready models. All our chairs are made with the same durability, high quality materials, and lightweight design, so even our more spacious models are exceptionally compact and packable.

If you've decided to opt for a more compact chair, we recommend taking a look at our Ultra Lightweight models. These chairs offer extra support for long days outside while maintaining a lower profile and taking up minimal space in your pack.

The Sunset's seat is approximately 14 in (36 cm) off the ground. The added height makes this supportive high back chair more comfortable on joints and limbs after a long day outdoors. With the Sunset, you can finally stretch out your legs without wondering how you'll get up. This chair is also great for pulling up to your Helinox Camp Table to eat or play a game of cards.

Not much. The primary (and most obvious) difference between our Sunset and Beach models is chair legs. The Helinox Beach Chair has splayed legs perfect for digging into sand and soft ground, which means it also sits much lower than Sunset Chair. Both are considered High-Back Chairs and thoughtfully designed with high-quality materials for wherever adventure takes you.

The Sunset Chair is perfect for R&R, and its straightforward design makes it both comfortable and packable. It does not come with a built-in cup holder, but we do sell the Cup Holder as an attachment. Browse our Accessories page for other creature comforts to deck out your Sunset Chair.

We know how important lumbar support is for extended sitting sessions. Our Sunset Chair is thoughtfully designed to provide ergonomic comfort reinforced by taut fabric and an ultra durable frame.

Pro tip: Some Helinox fans suggest using the Helinox Headrest as support for your lower back.

Yes, the Sunset Chair can be transformed into a rocking chair with the purchase of our Rocking Feet accessory. Simply attach the rockers to your chair's legs, sit back, and relax in nature.

All Helinox chairs are built with high-quality, ultra-durable materials for long-term comfort and dependability. To keep your chair in top form after heavy use, some easy care is recommended. While seat covers and carry bags are not machine washable, they can be hand washed in warm water using a mild detergent. Just make sure fabric is completely dry before packing away for storage.

Packability is an essential feature of Helinox chairs. Our innovative design ensures every chair is light and compact enough to fit neatly into its carry bag for easy travel and storage. Tuck your chair under your car seat or in the back of your closet. As long as the seat cover is dry and you're keeping it in a dry location, the only problem you'll have is remembering where you've stored it!

Assembling your Helinox chair is quick and easy. The shock-corded frame will virtually self-assemble – just be sure all the poles are fully inserted into the hubs. Always fit the seat to the upper rear poles first. Then, lay the chair on its back and use your body weight to flex the lower seat poles into the last two pockets. Brand new seats can be a little tight and the durable fabric helps prevent the seat from sagging over time. But don't worry, the more you use your chairs, the easier they'll be to assemble.

Helinox chairs are designed to help you feel At Home, Anywhere, and all our alloy poles are anodized to protect against corrosion. But to keep your chair in top form after use near water, some easy care is recommended. If the frame is exposed to salt water, rinse with some fresh water. And always make sure your chair is completely dry before packing away for storage.

Yes. Any shock-cord that gets damaged can be replaced.

Helinox Chairs are built strong and for use in all types of environments. For extra balance and support, we do offer soft ground and stability solutions, such as our Ground Sheets and Ball Feet.

Helinox frames are made from an advanced high-tech aluminum alloy that offers the ideal blend of strength and minimal weight. This special alloy is a higher specification than aircraft-grade aluminum, and goes through over 70 production processes from raw billet to finished pole section. The result is an ultra-durable frame that's sturdy, packable, and good-looking.

Hubs and joining components are custom-designed in-house and molded from high-strength, fibre-reinforced Nylon 66. The reinforced design provides a solid and secure connection for sturdy comfort and easy assembly.

All Helinox products are backed by a 5 Year Warranty.

You can return the product in ‘as new’ condition (undamaged and with original packaging) within 30 days for a full refund. To ensure the products remain in ‘as new’ condition, we recommend trying them indoors first. Any outdoor use in the dirt will scuff the feet and will render the product ‘used’.
