Waiting For The Bus Is Easy On A Portable Stool (Product Review)

Updated on July 30, 2015

Did you ever have the problem of waiting for the bus with nowhere to sit down? I've had the same problem having to stand while looking down the road hoping the bus would get there soon. You can't force a bus to get there sooner by getting aggravated with all your might. Things got pretty crumby, especially in the wintertime with my bad lungs while grocery shopping and wondering if I'd be able to carry my bags far enough on foot once the bus got me to my home stop. I wanted to figure something out.

Finally I thought I'd get a portable seat, a cheap one, a light one, if I could find one at amazon or somewhere that I could carry on foot. It would have to be light enough and small enough to fit in a grocery bag; not too big. And it would have to be low cost. Here is a picture of the one I got:

This one is very light. It only weighs 1.9 pounds and is like a folded newspaper in my hands. And it fits in a Save-A-Lot grocery bag just right. The first time I tried to carry it to the bus stop with me it was real easy to carry, nice and light, thankfully, no weight at all. I put it in my cart at the grocery store and it fit just fine and didn't get in the way. When I was done it was time to see how it worked to sit on at the bus stop going home.

It was perfect. It opened right up easily and held me securely when I sat down. It did not wobble or feel like I had to be very careful how I moved or fall over. Not at all. It sits 225 lbs. of weight. I waited very comfortably for the bus for about 15 to 20 minutes with my two bags of groceries on the sidewalk beside me. It stands high enough for my 5' 11" and when I saw the bus coming it was quick and easy to fold and put back in the bag. I am very pleased with it.


Other Customers Comment:

.Other customer reviewers also found the Coleman Rambler 11 Portable Stool stable, light, and comfortable. In his 5 star review Perfect Little Stool, Steve writes::"This little camping stool is perfect. I bought it to use a few times while camping and fishing, but I find myself using it more and more around the house. I use it when working in the garage, and even break it out during BBQ's for extra seating. So many activities can be enjoyed by using this stool. The possibilities are endless. And to make things even better, it is compeltely ruggedized, will withstand all kinds of abuse."

Another buyer, T Turner says in her 5 star review, Fishing Stool "This stool is almost perfect. Very sturdy and lightweight. If I could change anything, it would be to give the seat an inch or 2 more "butt" space. My boyfriend is 6'2" weighs 200 pounds & he has no problem with the seat."

Ralph says in Sitting At The Track Field, "This stool is very light to carry, yet very strong to sit on whether on sand, gravel or turf. It has really helped from having to stand and watch the field events that are not in the stadium. Thank you They are a big help at Church events also that take place outdoors. I am very satisfied with this Coleman Stool. Versatile and sturdy!!!"

In her 5 star review Susan says, " I am very pleased with my Coleman stool. I have plantar faciitis (sp) and it is hard for me to stand at times. I keep this stool in the trunk of my car. It is handy to have, and light weight. I use it at soccer games, fishing trips, picnic's, beach. A handy thing to have on hand"

Many more of such enthusiastic reviews are posted at Amazon, most folks rating it 5 stars. I too have found this stool to be just the thing for my special needs. I recommend you consider it for yourself or a loved one. It doesn't cost much at all. Here is the link to the page on Amazon.
