Stadium Seats With Backs Provide All Day Comfort

Updated on March 8, 2013

Stadium Seats Provide Comfort

If you attend sporting events that require you to sit in bleachers for an extended period of time, then you have to see the new stadium seats with backs. They can provide all day comfort.

My daughter is 11 years old and recently started playing club volleyball. Club volleyball is a lot more involved than the school team that she has played on the last couple of years. It is an all day event. For some tournaments, we are in the gyms all weekend.

We arrived at the volleyball center yesterday at 7:30 am and left around 4:00 pm. She played in 4 matches for a total of 10 games. There was a lot of sitting around time during the games and in between the matches. Needless to say, the metal bleachers we were sitting on were brutal on our rear ends.

I talked to a number of seasoned parents whose children have been playing on the volleyball circuit for some time. Several of them had these padded stadium seats with backs and they all raved about them. They stated that these seats were a must have item in order to avoid many weekends worth of sore buttocks from sitting on these metal benches.

After 8 and a half hours of sitting on these metal bleacher, I heeded their advice and went home to order a pair of these stadium seats for my wife and myself.

The Best Stadium Seats

I did quite a bit of research before purchasing so that I could ensure that I ended up with the best stadium seats available. Part of this research included reading a number of the user submitted reviews to ensure that current owners had no complaints.

The ones that I ended up deciding to purchase were the Markwort Patented Stadium chair. I was able to get these for approximately $45.00 a piece. I purchased a red one for my wife and a kelly green one for myself. This was a little more than I was wanting to spend, but my wife made a good point. We will be using them a lot, so if we are looking for comfort, don't skimp on cost if we have to sacrifice comfort.

I chose this model for several reasons:

  • They are highly rated. With a 4.7 out of 5 star review and 76 customers reviewing them, everyone seems very happy with this model.
  • They have a heavy duty clamp, allowing you to clamp this stadium chair to the bleacher. This will allow you to lean back without falling backwards.
  • It has a nice canvas back, measuring 17.5 inches wide by 11.25 inches high. The seat is also canvas, and measures 17 inches wide by 13.5 inches deep.
  • It is available in a variety of colors. Ten different colors to be exact. So my wife gets her favorite red color, and I get my favorite kelly green!
  • They are light weight. The shipping weight is only 1 pound, so it should not be a hassle to carry these around.
  • It is the #1 best seller in the Stadium Seats & Cushions section on Amazon. That's some social proof for you. Everyone else can't be wrong!

Top 6 Choices in Stadium Seats

While performing my research, I created a list of the best stadium seats available. These are the top choices and are available with a variety of features, colors, and prices. While the Markwort Stadium seat was the top choice on the list, the other models were high on the list for consideration.

Some of the models offer pockets for convenient storage, and others are "no-frills" models that offer nothing other than comfort!
