we were at rei a few days ago and tried this chair and i will say that its definitely on my list of items to buy myself! im only 5'7" so i was able to sit cross legged with my son on my lap and we could have both fell asleep. my wife liked it also but didnt like that price tag eitherI tried one yesterday in store (60 seconds in the chair) and loved it. It felt more roomy than the Sunset chair and the rocking was addictive. I will say that the vertical chair supports are close to the arm rests though.
Also, my wife did not like it at all, but that could just be because of the price tag
ive always wanted a helinox but same thing happened to me also and im only 5'7" 165. plus my kids are always with us camping and they toppled the helinox at REI on even stable ground. my 2 yr old can easily get in and out of the stargazer no problem. only problem is everyone sits in my damn chair now instead of the couch!!!went to REI and sat in the Helinox chair and immediately fell over when I put my arm out as if to grab a beer. Looks like a waste of a lot of money to me. Very unstable with the legs so close together.
mine just got sent back last week. waiting for my new one to get back so i can sit in comfortFYI Nemo Stargazer Camp Chair RECALL: https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2018/n...chairs-due-to-fall-hazard-sold-exclusively-at
