Helinox add Royal Box and Cot One Convertible Insulated to 2020 catalogue

Written by

Helinox have released their catalogue for 2020 and amongst the highlights are an innovative lightweight sun shade, the Royal Box, and a remarkable insulated camp bed, Cot One Convertible Insulated.

Royal Box - Shade, where you need it:

Whether on a day out in the countryside or on the beach, the new Helinox Royal Box provides portable protection from the sun. Two Helinox chairs and a table can be accomodated in an easily transportable structure. Constructed from DAC's proprietary, high-strength aluminimum alloy poles and a durable nylon canopy, the Royal Box is versatile, easy to assemble and offers SPF 50+ coverage. Shade, always available where it's needed..

Helinox Royal Box

Thanks to the lightweight aluminum pole construction by DAC, the Royal Box only weighs 2400g. DAC has been producing high-quality poles for the most renowned tent manufacturers in the outdoor market for decades. This expertise is reflected in the Helinox Royal Box and allows easy assembly and disassembly in just a few minutes.

The canopy is made of durable ripstop nylon and offers an SPF of 50+. Measuring 145 x 220 x 148 cm (L x W x H), the Royal Box offers protection and shade for two Helinox chairs and a table all year long. As well as offering shade from the sun, the latest member of the Helinox family also keeps wind and rain out.

When packed it only measures 70 x 15 x 29 cm (L x W x H). Thanks to the carrying strap, the Royal Box can easily be transported wherever shade is needed.

The Royal Box will be available from spring 2020 in black and sand colours at a recommended retail price of £175.

Cot One Convertible Insulated:

Helinox has added to its range of lightweight and durable camping cots.  New for 2020 is the Cot One Convertible Insulated, adding warmth but little weight to a proven product.

The Cot One Convertible Insulated combines Helinox's proprietary DAC aluminium alloy legs with a self-inflating sleeping pad that delivers an insulation R-Value of 5.  Easy and quick to assemble, the cot has generous dimensions of 190 x 68cm and a capacity of 145kg.  This new addition to the Helinox range has already been well received in the UK, having been shortlisted by a panel of experts in the 2020 UK Outdoor Industry Awards.  Along with the other finalists, the cot will be showcased to 90,000 visitors at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show next February.  The general public will be able to vote for their favourite products at the show and online, before the winners are announced at the Outdoor Industries Association Conference next March. 

Helinox Cot Insulated

The Helinox Cot One Convertible Insulated is also simple to pack away into its compact carry bag (66cm long) and weighs in at just 3kg.  Built to last and provide high levels of comfort even when the temperature dips sharply, the new cot will be available from March next year in the Helinox 2020 collection, alongside the standard Cot One Convertible, Cot One Convertible Long, Lite Cot and Cot Max Convertible.
