We've had this chair for a few years and I never understood why my kids fought NOT to use it. Tonite I used it and understood. The back rest works as promised and is great if you have back issues. The bottom, however, is under-cushioned which leaves you basically directly on the bleacher. It's barely better than having nothing ... yes you are protected from dirty or wet or cold bleachers but you are not comfortable.

How have I lived 40 years without this? I'm crazy about this little seat. I am no longer hurting after sitting on the bleachers, watching my kids play sports. I really like how the seat back is adjustable and locks into place with ease.

The seat is elegant and light. The back can be set at different angles if so desired. However, the seat does not have much cushioning. The seat is longer than most and this is why the edge of the seat cuts into my thighs. Maybe if my legs were longer, this would not be the case (I am 5'6"). I am thinking of opening up the zipper and inserting more cushioning and/or cutting down the seat length.

Revised 11/15/17: I used it at two other stadiums and did not have the same problem, since the seats in the bleachers were lower. At one of them, however security at one gate told me I could not take it in since it had a zipper and they considered it a bag (?!) I went to a different gate and had no problem getting it in.

Decent. Better than complete bleacher-butt I guess....

I like that they don't have arms like some designs, but my husband, who is 6'0/260# found it to be kinda skimpy, width-wise. While it fit my butt just fine, after sitting for a few hours, I could feel the support bar inside the cushion. I'm #160, so I've concluded the padding is mediocre. I really like the adjustable back, b/c that usually bothers me more than bleacher-butt :)

Overall, they are decent and reasonably priced compared to other models.

I was so looking forward to receiving these chairs! They are definitely smaller and easier to carry than the stadium seats you haul to and fro on your back. I felt as though they had sufficient padding, were easy enough to adjust the back angle to suit you, and the quality of the workmanship appeared to be good. But......after 10 minutes (or less) of sitting in them on top of metal bleachers, we both agreed they had to go. The top of the back frame hit us halfway down our back and was not at all comfortable. Not sure what the manufacturer could do to change that other than make them taller. We tried for a different angle, but no difference. As much as we wanted these to work, they just didn’t, at least not for us. We are not tall people - husband is 6 feet, I am 5’6”, so average height. I have returned them and ordered Soft Touch Stadium Seats (the kind you haul on your back). We’ll see how those work for us.

Love this seat. It is a but big for carrying around as it is carried in the completely flat position. It is very comfortable for sitting in bleachers and supporting your back. I have to sit for 4 hours at gymnastics meets or 1-2 hours at a time a lot kids hockey games and this seat is great. I really like the adjustable back. It can be slightly reclined or straight up to fit your needs. The only downsides, if there are any, would be the ability to feel the bar (structural) in the front under your legs and the placement of the pockets that cannot be used if you are sitting in the chair (only usable when carrying the seat unless used for butt warmers).

I was really excited about this product. However, the moment I took it out of the package and put it up right the seam busted. In that case, I doubt it will last long.

I love this chair. I bought it to keep on our boat for sitting on the bow and it's just perfect. It's sturdy and works as promised. I like that it's cushioned on the bottom so it doesn't scratch the boat. I ended up buying 2 more! Also very easy to put away when not in use. Love and highly recommend. Also... great price!

I have back issues, so took it to 2 football games for the bleachers. The first game ended up just having grass on a hill for spectators...while the material did slide a bit on the downhill was way more comfortable than sitting on the grass. The people I was with kept getting up uncomfortably, but I never felt the need. I just left it flat for that experience. The next week, it was on bleachers. The velcro holder for around the bleacher fit with room to spare for bigger benches. It was super comfortable. Definitely recommend this one!

we bought these chairs to use at 4+ hour sporting events where we would be sitting in long bleachers. These simple chairs give you a bit of cushion and ALOT of back support. The chair is light to carry and is quite small. Would recommend these 100x over and cant believe we went a year without them.

I didn't buy this to use as a stadium seat, but instead as a beach chair for lounging on the sand.

I've used it once so far and it worked fine. I was able to easily set the angle and the chair had no problems accommodating my weight when I leaned back into it. I did notice that at the end of the day, the seat cushion seemed to have flattened out. This indicates to me that the cushion material is a bit flimsy but, aside from that, it performed to my satisfaction.

Top horizontal support bar really digs into your back. Back and bottom seating needs more padding. The reclining mechanism seems to work well and is relatively light weight.

This is a very good folding chair. It helps a lot supporting my back. It's a little heavier than I expected,though, but still I would recommend it.

I’m extremely disappointed in these chairs. I bought with the hopes of having back support while at the park or beach with my kids but the chair backs are so small it’s extremely uncomfortable. I returned the two I bought.

Could use a little more cushioning for the bottom as you can feel the bars when sitting on the seat, otherwise this item was as expected. Much better than sitting on the cold, hard benches at my kids games.

These seats are well made with a sturdy frame. They offer great support and you can set the angle of the back to what ever works best for you. I wish they had a bit more padding as I can feel the frame pressing into my back if I lean back into it. Aside from a little discomfort they are perfect for use on our small sail boat.

Perfect for The hours I spend watching my daughters VB tourneys

Super confo

Back support is marginal due to poor cushion. I am a small guy at 135lbs yet I can feel the bars through my seat.

Wife loves it. Going to the arena makes it easier.

Very happy with this purchase. The seat is warm and comfy.

Works good

Very small but does the job
