Waiting For The Bus Seated Is So Much Better (A Product Review)

Updated on December 15, 2014

Dear Friend,

Not all bus stops are created equal. Some have no place to sit. If you find that a problem there is a low cost solution.

Standing for a bus can be unpleasant on a hot day under the high noon sun. You can get a little dizzy. A cold day isn't much better. It adds to the discomfort if your back starts to hurt and you get a little wobbly. It would be so much nicer to have a way to sit down. I have found a way. It's the Coleman Rambler ll Stool.

It works very well for me because it is light weight, stable and tall enough to be comfortable, and small enough to fit in a plastic grocery bag. It folds and unfolds quickly and easily like a clothe pin.

I got it at Amazon.

It weights only 1 lbs 9 oz and feels like a thin morning newspaper in my hand. Designed for campers it is waterproof and rust proof. Its seat is large enough for my bigger than average frame and strong enough for my 175 lbs of body weight. It supports 225 lbs overall. If standing at bus stops that have no seat is a problem for you it does nicely.

Comments from happy campers;

A person named Amazon Customer gave it 5 stars.

"I've used two of these for four 3-night camp-outs this year. We sit on them, prop our feet on them, use them as small tables outside the tent, or nightstands inside the tent. Very versatile. I leave them stowed in my van when we're not camping and they don't take up much space under a seat. I'm thoroughly pleased with them!”

Another reviewer, named The Hiker writes “The Coleman rambler is a great and simple designed stool. It is lighter than most any stool or small chair found and provides an extremely sturdy base and seat. Can be uses for backpacking, etc where lightweight but dependable counts.”

And Ralph says, “ 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!!!”

Waiting for the bus seated is so much better. My legs don't wobble and my back doesn't get strained. It folds and unfolds easily enabling my weight to enhance its stability. It affords my problem lungs relaxed and easy breathing.

People find it a delightful sight and engage me in pleasant conversation. Many know someone who might like to have one of their own for various outdoor sitting challenges. It makes me feel good that I may have helped someone a lot like me. Here are some other interesting facts.

  • It is the best selling stool in its category at Amazon. There is none other like it.
  • It has one of the highest number of 5 star approval ratings from happy customers
  • It is the most competitively priced for its category.

If you want one click on through to Amazon. It's worth it.
