Bench is described as a long seat for several people. For that, a bench is also not synonymous with camping. Like who would bring a bench to camping? But what do you know? There is actually a bench designed specifically with base camp in mind. I mean, why not, right? It’s nice to be able to seat close to someone… that’s assuming that the pandemic is out of the way.
Folks, meet Bench One, an elegant piece of base camp furniture that sits two person. It is minimalist, portable, lightweight and sets up in matter of seconds.
The bench features a unique cantilevered design, DAC alloy construction and breathable material. Believe it or not, it may look like a long field chair without a backrest, but this little big guy can hold up to 320 lbs (145 kilograms) – despite it weighing just 4 lbs 10 oz (2.1 kilograms).
It is 16 inches (40 cm) tall, 43.5 inches (111 cm) wide, 16 inches (40 cm) deep, and packs down to an easy to carry 6 x 17.5 x 6 inches (H x W x D; 16 x 45 x 16 cm).
If you think Helinox Bench One is what’s missing from your camping adventure, you may want to consider picking it up from Helinox.com. Be warned though, it does not come cheap. Such awesomeness commands a rather wallet-crunching US$299.95. That’s $150 per butt if anyone’s counting.
