Helinox Camp Chair at Walmart

Not the same brand, but I spied this at Walmart today. Exact same design, just not as high quality materials, but still decent!

If any of you lightweights have been holding off on dropping the coin for a Helinox, this would do for you. There is a trade off of weight vs lbs. The knockoff is considerably heavier, but the joints and material seem substantially robust for $15. Image

It is a pretty good buy. We have both. I would be VERY hesitant to use the Walmart version if you weigh more than 150. Ours buckled quickly with a 200+ occupant.

Thank you for the heads up on this. I selected a different Walmart chair (because I really like the mesh panel) and my hiking part of camping is usually walk-in park sites so I'm ok with a heavier chair.

I pick it up next week so I won't be able to use it this weekend - dang it! I'll let you know what I think when it arrives.
