This review will cover what you need to know about the Stansport folding stadium seat before making a purchase. We were initially impressed with this product because of the multitude with as well as the comfortable-looking design. We do like the fact that this is a collapsible stadium seat. Many other Stadium seats are not collapsible and they weigh a lot. This would prevent someone from carrying them around while they are traveling. But with this one, is a shoulder strap to make it easy to carry with you while keeping your hands free.
The stadium seat is a little different from some of the others because it has a hook at the bottom to latch onto the bleachers. Weather this week is actually very stable is questionable. Customers have said that the hook has broken off for them with multiple uses. Also, because the hook is there underneath the seat, you cannot simply set it down on the ground to sit during an event. It needs to be on a bleacher or on another seat.
We will give this one credit, as it does come at a very affordable price. Please see below for the Stansport folding stadium seat features.
Weight: 19 pounds
Dimensions: 19 x 17 x 5.5 inches
Collapsible: A great feature about this product is the fact that it is collapsible so that you can simply carry it around with its shoulder strap.
No assembly required: No setup is required for the Stansport stadium seat, and it’s usable right out of the box.
Storage pockets: Perhaps one of the greatest features about the Stansport stadium seat is the fact that it has plenty of large storage pockets. It’s largest pockets are behind the seat, parallel to the back. But there is also storage area around the legs at the bottom of the item. The storage area is convenient to place newspapers or magazines inside of it.
Shoulder strap: The shoulder strap that comes with the stadium seat allows you to carry it around hands-free after it is folded.
Use it to watch sports or take to a picnic table: The main purpose of purchasing this product would likely be in order to use it at a stadium on a bleacher. But you could find other ways to use this, such as with a picnic table.
Armrests: The armrests on those products are built right into the tubular steel frame.
Padded seat and backrest: The seat and the backrest are both padded. However, customers have said that the padding on the seat does not seem to be sufficient in order to prevent rubbing against the steel frame.
Tubular steel frame: The tubular steel frame is made to be durable and stable.
- Plenty of space to store your reading materials and water bottles
- Comes at a very affordable price
- Can’t use it other than on a seat because of the hook
- Customers have said that the middle clip is not very secure
- The padding around the sides is not sufficient protect against the steel bar.
While the Stansport Folding Stadium Seat comes at the very affordable price of less than $30, it does have a few issues the customers have pointed out. Although it is nice that it has plenty of pockets to store your items, there other stadium seats that will do the trick and be more comfortable.
One of our favorites is the Cascade Mountain Tech Stadium Seat, which has overwhelmingly positive reviews. One of the great things about the Cascade Mountain seat is the fact that there is no issue with the steel frame poking into the sides or back. It is about the same price as the Stansport stadium seat. The downside is that it does not have any armrests or any pockets. But for us, it does offer more value.
One that does have pockets and is very comfortable as the Rio Adventure Stadium Arm Chair. The price is very similar to the two of us, and it also has a nice cushion easy that is about 2 inches thick. Customers have touted the level of comfort of this one and it said that this is one of the best stadium seats they’ve ever had.
Although the Stansport folding stadium seat does have its merits, if you want something that is more robust, please check out our other stadium seat reviews.
