[WTB] Helinox chair one or similar

Looking for a lightweight chair I can whip out camping and at my sons football games.

Let me know if you have one to sell or even if you'd recommend a low cost alternative.

Thanks!

Check ebay for hiking chairs. Seem pretty similar in weight and design to the helinox ones for about 40 bucks. May not last you quite as long but with heavy use you can get a few years out of them.

Also look out for the Aldi knock off for about $30 if they turn up in the near future. I've had one for several years and it's been great.
Given the proposed application, remember these things are more fragile than the average car camping chair.
Regardless of brand/price, with care they are fine but they don't play well with excessive force.

Check the Denali Zephyr chair, it was recently $55 on sale at Anaconda.

Definitely not a Helionox, but i grabbed one to replace by big car camping folder chair.
