A low, casual design for relaxing outdoors. The Playa Chair has a laid back feel with a wide seat and high back allowing you to lean back and enjoy the views. The two cup holders are ideal for whiling away the hours.
The Helinox Playa Chair is a luxurious option for the beach or the backyard. It has a collapsible design, a wide and tall supportive frame, built-in arm rests, and integrated beverage holders!
The chair has a comfy, supportive high back and the woven polyester material is well-ventilated in expectation of warm weather use. The poles are durable DAC aluminum and shock-corded construction allows them to pack down small. The "feet" have a broad reach and tip ends that make the chair stable even in soft sand.
Helinox's Playa Chair is ideal for relaxing in the garden or at basecamp. A strong, solid design with surprisingly lightweight materials make for an easily transported chair. Putting the chair together and taking it down is really easy with the shock cord frame and it's only the first few times the fabric needs a bit of extra force to fit onto the frame.
The low position is really comfortable (although not to everyone's taste - this split the opinions of the staff at UOG who tested it) and the seat is generous enough to keep you comfortable in a range of conditions. The two bottle holders are ideal for garden parties and relaxing at camp after a hard day. The head rest does feel a bit too far back at first but there is a large piece of material that is adjustable so you can fit a jacket or camping pillow in there to make it a much more comfortable head rest.
