The best material is only part of the story.

We've operated at the very center of the outdoor adventure industry for more than 20 years. We've absorbed a huge amount of experience by working closely with the world's most active adventurers - some of whom work in our own design office. Helinox blends experience, innovative design and the world's most advanced material technology to lead the trends.

Compact. Strong. Light.

Outdoor equipment must be functional and reliable. It must also be strong and very light. Helinox equipment is engineered by the world leader in advanced high strength alloys - DAC Featherlite. The best lightweight tents feature DAC poles and stakes as standard equipment because they are universally regarded as the strongest and the lightest.

We’ve won a few awards.
Ok, a lot of awards.
