Gear for the Holidays: Crazy Creek HEX 2.0 Original Chair

These super light, highly packable camp chairs are great for backpacking and even day hikes or mountain bike rides where you want a comfy place to sit for lunch. The HEX 2.0 rolls up tight and includes a built-in strap for easy packing. I took the HEX 2.0 camping on the beach in Costa Rica and in addition to having a comfy place to plant myself with morning coffee and end-of-the-day libations, I used the rolled-out chair as part of my sleeping pad system since space in my checked luggage was limited. It also served as a light pack frame tucked inside my 35 liter Black Diamond pack that accompanied me on the plane. With carbon-fiber stays and tight-knit nylon webbing, this improved Crazy Creek classic chair seems virtually indestructible. At just under 22-ounces, the HEX 2.0 will be joining me on many backcountry adventures this year. MSRP: $53.50. Crazycreek.com.//
