Helinox Chairs

Three years ago, we purchased four Helinox chairs (one for each family member) as a Christmas gift. After 3 years of use, we remain impressed with the quality and durability of these chairs. The Helinox chairs are compact and light, taking up about half the space of our old heavy foldable camping chairs. This not only helps when we road trip in the minivan, but also makes it possible to put them into a backpack for short hikes. These chairs assemble easily – our kids can have their chairs built in less than a minute. Read our full review at:

This is the best dslr camera for mountain biking - at an entry level price point

Canon T7i DSLR For Mountain Biking Photos

We recently upgraded to this 24mp Canon DSLR with 18-55mm lens so we could get sharper action shots and achieve better results in low light. The camera can shoot 6 frames per second and its auto-focus is more than adequate when upgrading from a smartphone. A 16gb SD card can hold over 500 images. It also shoots HD video at 1920 x 1080 resolution. If you want a similar camera with a weather-sealed body, consider the Canon 80D.
