Yeah I'm in a good quest for these chairs as well. Just called every online vendor today inquiring about inventory. Seems as though everyone is out of stock, everywhere. Some of these vendors are selling this chair under the manufacturer big Agnes. Perfect! Gave big Agnes a call in steamboat springs CO and they also out of stock. Per their website, they expect delivery oct 1st.

I just hope to get a pair before my upcoming trip on October 6th!

If anyone has any other leads that I failed to find, feel free to chime in!

You will pay for it though. About triple of normal cost….

I bought 2 of these great chairs here - http://www.ultralightoutdoorgear.co....chair_one.html

About $115 at the current exchange rate, received them here in the U.S. in about 3 days!

I waltzed into REI the other day to purchase an inReach. Low and behold, REI has rebranded the helinox chairs as well. Blew my mind. It's the exact same helinox chair, same plastic lug for the dac poles, same little plastic feet, slightly different webbing pattern on the cloth.

$65 for the REI rebranded Helinox. I walked out with two :).

Too lazy to go to the local store, just ordered mine with their 20% off sale and free shipping.
$55.20 including the governments share.
I love REI.

They have different weight ratings.
REI Flex Lite chair rated at 250#, Helinox rated at 320#. Huh?

It's a great offer but unfortunately not as comfortable as the real Helinox... :)
