I don't see a link to the purchase site on my iPad. Maybe it's too cleverly embedded?

Cot looks very nice. Chair looks exactly like an REI chair I bought which is very nice.

I've been shopping around and researching other cots Doctor and although a little short for me, I've signed up for the Helinox version. Finke is coming up and a swag in the red dust (hopefully - not mud!) isn't an attractive cleaning option. Thanks for organising the group buy..

I showed a Swiss traveller in Oz (Thierry) my Helinox chair and table so he commandeered mine and bought new ones for me via your group buy - poor bugga missed the codeword out and didn't get his discount.....dealing with a new currency didn't make it any easier for him either, but he's as happy as a P.I.S. with the products. cheers.

Got back from a work trip to Cooma to a nice surprise on the doorstep. Usual prompt service from Norman. Thanks for organising Doctor and I would be keen on the mat if one comes along.

Brilliant service and product

ordered on Sunday night, delivered Wednesday morning... wow FAST!

great build and design... as "smart" as the chair... the Mrs saw it, assembled it... and liked it a little TOO much me thinks!

+1 on the mat when it goes live... based on the quality of everything else I've seen from them... its a no brainer

Velcro??

Any thoughts on what the Velcro on back of the chair and underneath the cot are for? Also... what's with the neoprene bag for the cot?

Neoprene bag filled with "stuff"= pillow? least that's what i'm using it for

Velcro and clips... I think they are looking at something like the luxury lite cot uses to reduce the thermal loss below... in cold u need something additional to insulate where the sleeping bag compresses under your weight

but this is a guess on both accounts
