Pros:Comfortable & Affordable

Cons:Arm rests are slightly wobbly, and there is no way to tighten them.

The Bottom Line:

A great stadium seat that provides comfort, support and is priced right.


With 2 children involved in sports I spend a great deal of time sitting on hard uncomfortable gymnasium bleachers. This year when wrestling and basketball season rolled around I was prepared; I purchased two Ozark Trail Folding Stadium Seats.

So far, I have been very pleased with my purchase. I have been using the the the stadium seat for three months. At a recent wrestling tournament I spent almost nine hours straight, sitting in one of these Ozark Trail Folding Stadium Seats. I was comfortable the entire time. At that tournament I also had several people ask me where I got my seat because they wanted to get one just like it. Their seats were whimpy!

Why I love it

Comfort: There are several things that make the Ozark Trail Folding Stadium Seat comfortable. One is that the padding in the seat and back is 1" thick. The padded seat base is 14" deep and a roomy 16" wide, the seat frame is actually 18" wide.  The padded seat back is 16" high.

The sturdy frame also has two built in support bars that provide additional comfort and support horizontally across the back.  These bars are flat and with the 1" padding you feel nothing but support. 

It also has arm rests which add to the comfort factor. They are an adequate 10" in length and approximately 2" wide. The arm rests on both of the chairs that I bought are a little wobbly--that doesn't interfere with the comfort, it just seems to me that they should be tight, but there is no way to tighten them.  
 
Portability: The Ozark Trail Folding Stadium Seat folds up for easy portability and storage. It has an adjustable padded shoulder strap, as well as a convenient handle for carrying, and it is surprisingly lightweight, weighing no more than 5 lbs. which adds to the ease of portability. It also has two adjustable nylon straps with clips to keep the seat closed and compact for storage and while transporting. When the seat is collapsed it measures 3" deep x 18" tall x 22" wide. It stores nicely in the trunk of my car and doesn't take up much room, so I store it there throught the sports season.

Cost:
$16.00
When I first inspected the Ozark Trail Folding Stadium Seat in the store I figured that it would cost around $30, I thought that it was a high quality seat. I was pleasantly surprised that it only cost $16. (at WalMart) What a bargain!

Storage:  The Ozark Trail Folding Stadium Seat has plenty of built in storage.  It has 5 different pockets.  An 8" x 4.5" mesh zippered pocket, and a 3" x 4" mesh pocket. It also has an 8.5" x 4.5" pocket with a velcro tab closure on it, and another pocket with no closure on it that is 3"x 4.5".  On the back of the seat there is a generous 17" x 12.5" pocket with a draw string closure at the top. These pockets are great for holding keys, snacks, cameras, and blankets.

Material: The fabric that is used is a heavy-duty canvas type, it should wear well. The strap and handles are made from nylon and canvas.  The arm rests and clips are made from a heavy-duty plastic.  The frame is made from a metal-alloy that is light weight yet strong.  My husband is a big guy, weighing 200+ lbs.--This seat has proven to be strong and durable standing up to his use.  When I purchased my Ozark Folding Stadium Seats they were available in royal blue with black trim, or red with black trim. There were a lot missing from the selection so there may have been other colors to begin with.  The tag on the seat doesn't offer any information as to which colors the seat is available in. I chose the red seat with black trim... our school colors.

Easy to use: The Ozark Trail Folding Stadium Seat is easy to use.  You simply unlatch the clips, set the seat down on the bleachers, and pull the seat open, it unfolds smoothly.  For added security, there are two spring loaded stability clips on the bottom of the seat. These clips would keep the seat from sliding off of the bleachers.  I haven't needed to use them yet.  I probably would use them if I had a child sitting in it to keep them and the seat from sliding forward or backward off of the bleacher. 

Warnings on the tag:  The advised weight capacity is 225 lbs., it recommends not exceeding this, or leaning over the armrest stating that personal injury or damage to the seat could occur.
