Rated 2 out of 5 by shadow007 Flimsy - no support
I finally pulled this to use last week at a lacrosse game. It does not offer back support or cushioning. I felt as if I could not 'lean back' or the adjustable straps would break. It is light weight but not what I was looking for. I wanted something with an aluminum frame. It will be going back. I purchased it based on the reviews. Did not fit my standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigredtruck Comfort for bleacher sitting
Wish I had gotten one of these five years ago. As a band mom I spend many Friday nights and Saturdays sitting on bleachers. This trail chair doesn't have the padding in the seat that many bleacher chairs do, but the back support is what I needed. It's lightweight for carrying, has a handy pocket on the back for programs, and the adjustable sides are easy to use. Also great for picnics and outdoor events when you don't want to haul a chair.
After a full season of use, it still looks new!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ADKontheSevern Actually 4.5 rated - needs reinforcement in a spot
A higher back would be nicer for this 6'4" frame - however, this has worked pretty well for me. The heavy stitching has kept the stays in place - this has been a fairly swift failure point for me with a competitor's product. The outer hinge area around the stays could use some reinforcement - the design is fine for grass ,sand, and probably bleachers..If used on rock or asphalt, a few square inches of sacrificial gaffer's tape is recommended for this contact area - there was noticeable wear at two small spots around the [stay] hinge after several hours use under the more severe conditions (asphalt))

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whatchamacallit Great for traveling
I just purchased a second one of these for my husband. This easily fit in my suitcase and went with me to the beach every day for several months on a Greek island. I need to have back support and this was great. VERY lightweight, durable, comfortable, and waterproof. Wish it came with a shoulder strap, but I improvised one easily. Couldn't find anything like it in the island shops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kellyGSP Did what they are supposed to
I purchased these to use on an old canoe of ours that doesn't have any back support. After spending a few full days on the canoe, I decided that we needed these. They work great for sitting on the canoe and fishing. I'm sure they will also come in handy for other uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VermontMomOfFour Great for Bleachers
These seats saved my back sitting in numerous basketball and baseball games. I have been using them for around 8 years. The seat is not flimsy, but flexible. Your body is in a V position. You can adjust the seat so that your knees are closer to or farther from your chest. Difference between these seats and a metal stadium seat is that these seats allow you to lean back. Just used it last night at a basketball game. I had forgotten to get it out of my trunk the last week. Last week, I was hunched over and got a sore back - This week I leaned back in comfort. I highly recommend. Work well on the ground too. Kids like them cause they can rock in them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jim2012 Trail/Stadium Chairs
Nice chairs. Seem to be just as advertised. Very light and easy to carry. We have used them a couple of times at Basketball games as bleacher seats. Back support quite good. Back can be adjusted with the attached straps. Straps are very sturdy and well attached to the chair. Quality is very good and well made. I must say they are probably not suited for a very large person but fit me well as I am 5'7" and 145#. We will see more about the use as we use them more but so far so good. Probably should give them five stars but since I have just started using them and I don't rate quite as high as I sometimes should. Overall very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BuckeyeBeaver Lightweight, comfortable
Since our stadium does not permit rigid back seats these are the next best thing. Besides giving good back support they are very light and easy to carry. They are easy to adjust depending on body size and the amount of cold-weather clothing worn.

We recently purchased these trail chairs. We used them for a little extra padding for bleacher seating at a recent concert. We really appreciated the back support. The seat part could use a bit more padding. That's an easy fix...I will just make small padded cushions to use with the chairs. We will use them again while attending future concerts (with extra padding) . We also liked that they were compact and light to carry. We recommend these chairs to others, if only for the back support they give you.
