Big Agnes – Chair One in Blue Tiger Camo

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

This is my OR Winter Market alibi. I ran across this Blue Tiger Camo version of the Chair One and wanted to buy one before I told you about them. Unfortunately, they are sold out, but still very cool in my opinion.


I’ve got an OD version of this 1.9 lbs, folding camping chair and love it. Hopefully, they’ll get more in stock.


Helinox Tactical Chairs Now Available from Mystery Ranch

Friday, July 19th, 2013

The Helinox Tactical Chairs I mentioned during last week’s Warrior Expo East are now available for order exclusively from Mystery Ranch.


MR honcho, Dana Gleason worked with the world renown aluminum wizards at DAC to refine a tactical version of their Helinox lightweight chair. He added a pair of side pockets as well as a Velcro patch on the back of the chair for ID. Offered in Black, Coyote, or Foliage, with Black collapsible chair frame.


OR – Helinox Chair

Monday, January 28th, 2013


As I passed the Big Agnes’s booth at OR, I caught a glimpse of MultiCam out of the corner of my eye. I stopped and sure enough, I had spied a camp chair in MultiCam. Of course, I thought, “how cool is that?” It would be great for use while deployed. But if that wasn’t great enough, once I visited Mystery Ranch I got to meet with a rep from the Korean manufacturer Helinox. Turns out, Helinox’s sister company makes aluminum poles. In fact, although not Berry compliant, their aluminum poles are the industry standard. But that’s beside the point. I found out that the chair I saw at master distributor Big Agnes is a consumer product.


Mystery Ranch will be offering a “cool guy” version of the chair called appropriately enough the Tac Chair. It is going to include a few enhancements and will be offered not only in MultiCam but also Black, Ranger Green and Coyote. For one thing, the small pouch you see at the rear will hold the broken down chair for storage and transport. Additionally, they’ve added a small pocket on the side as well as a full Cordura body for durability.


Here you see the Big Guy himself enjoying a short respite in the TAC Chair.
