PROS

This model weighs a measly ~7 pounds and has no issues supporting up to 500 pounds. The built-in bleacher hook adds stability when sitting on wooden and metal bleachers. At the same time, you can easily pivot the hook away to sit on the ground. The rubber strips on the bottom do an excellent job preventing the seat from sliding around/away.

CONS

The folding mechanism will start squeaking over time. 

OUR VERDICT

The Flash Furniture Grandstand Ultra-Padded Seat is pretty amazing for those who love the team but hate the bleachers. You'll be able to watch the game with comfort and confidence. You can bring the seat to any camping trip as well as to the beach and pretty much any outdoor concert.

OUR VERDICT

The name tells you everything you need to know about the Cascade Mountain Tech Portable Folding Steel Stadium Seat to make the right decision. Considering the affordable price tag, this is an easy decision to make. Plus, the aluminum frame makes the model pretty much indestructible.

The integrated straps let you roll up and secure this stadium seat to make sure you're able to carry the seat with other outdoor essentials. The model also comes equipped with this mesh seatback pocket that lets you enjoy the game hands-free and keep different items easily accessible at all times.

CONS

The buckles are not necessarily sturdy/durable. 

OUR VERDICT

Coleman Stadium Seat is almost too easy on the pocketbook to pass up. You can unhook the buckles and seamlessly convert the comfortable seat into a bench pad for two people. The adjustable shoulder strap lets you sling this thing over the shoulder and you probably won't even feel its 1.2-pound presence.

Power Pulse Technology Heated

Bringing the Heat

Power Pulse Technology Heated Cushion is not necessarily a seat. Surprisingly enough, this thing is a cushion. We couldn't overlook and not add the product to our stadium seats list though.

First things first, the cushion is compatible with stadium seats. At the same time, you can bring the cushion to different sporting events as well as tailgating, fishing, hunting, and other purposes like that. The cushion is suitable for golf carts, standard car seats, and more.

As the heated part suggests, the model comes equipped with a heating element that generates enough heat to keep you warm and comfortable outdoors. Generally speaking, the cushion takes ~15 minutes to reach max heat output. You can choose between 3 heating modes, so you'll be able to keep yourself not just warm but also comfortable through different temperatures.

The polyester cover is as water-resistant as they come, meaning you won't have to worry about maintenance. The necessary AC and car chargers come with the package, so you won't have to purchase them separately. Finally, the shoulder strap and carry handle will let you transport the cushion with comfort and ease.

The Power Pulse Technology Heated Cushion is awesome. You can bring this heated stadium seat with you wherever you go. It will keep you warm and comfortable no matter the temperature. The battery lasts somewhere between 3 and 6 hours depending on the heating mode.

ONIVA Ventura

Backpack Chair

Calling this product a stadium seat is excessively reductive. Despite the name, the ONIVA Ventura Reclining Stadium Seat is more of a backpack chair than anything else.

Incorporating padded armrests, six backrest positions, and high-density foam padding, the lightweight and highly portable model easily compares to beach chairs, recliners, stadium chairs, and different game chairs.

The lightweight frame makes this product easy to move around. The sturdy polyester canvas is practically immune to wear and tear. The water-resistant bottom will let you take the chair outside despite any weather.

Apart from that, the large exterior zipper pocket will let you store different items and keep them easily accessible at the same time.

You can invert the arms to increase the seat's width up 20 inches.

The aforementioned six backrest positions let you find the perfect angle for any arching back.

The adjustable backpack straps let you carry the seat anywhere you go hands-free.

In other words, the ONIVA Ventura Reclining Stadium Seat lets you kick back and relax pretty much anywhere. The only issue we have with the product is that even when folded, the seat takes quite some room to store. Compared to pretty much any folding stadium seat with back support, this is about as good as these things get.

Flash Furniture Grandstand

Screw the Bleachers

The Flash Furniture Grandstand Ultra-Padded Seat is pretty amazing for those who love the team but hate the bleachers.

Not necessarily its biggest selling point but the model weighs measly ~7 pounds and has no issues supporting up to 500 pounds, meaning that the seat doesn't discriminate at all.

More importantly, the padded back and the 3-inch foam seat will keep you so comfortable that you probably won't ever want the game to end.

Apart from that, the built-in bleacher hook adds stability when sitting on wooden and metal bleacher seats. At the same time, you can easily pivot the hook away to sit on the ground.

On the stability subject, there also these rubber strips on the bottom that do an excellent job preventing the seat from sliding around/away.

When folded, the seat measures 18" x 15.5" x 6". As far as we're concerned, these dimensions are perfect - large enough to keep you comfortable but not too large to make people around you uncomfortable. The only issue here is that the folding mechanism will probably start squeaking over time.

Other than that, the Flash Furniture Grandstand Ultra-Padded Seat will let you watch the game with comfort and confidence. You can bring the seat to any camping trip as well as to the beach and pretty much any outdoor concert.

Cascade Mountain Tech Portable

Don't Have to be Gentle

The Cascade Mountain Tech Portable Folding Steel Stadium Seat is pretty much everything that the name describes.

The aluminum frame makes the seat pretty much indestructible. You won't have to be gentle with this thing at all.

The canvas is pretty tough and durable too. The water-resistant coating gives the canvas additional durability and lets you use the seat anywhere under any temperature conditions.

Meanwhile, the bungee reinforcements make the padded seat especially comfortable and practical. These are these bleacher hooks that let you attach the seat to metal and/or wooden bleachers with ease. Also, you can always stow these hooks away to place the seat on the ground.

Apart from that, the non-slip bottom makes sure you're able to move without moving the seat. The carry handle lets you transport the seat with comfort and ease. The folded model measures 17" x 15.5" x 5", meaning that it is relatively compact. That being said, the seat weighs 8 pounds, which is more than you'd expect from these dimensions.

Again, the name tells you everything you need to know about the Cascade Mountain Tech Portable Folding Steel Stadium Seat to make the right decision. Plus, considering the affordable price tag, this is an easy decision to make.

Coleman Portable

Almost too Easy on the Pocketbook

The Coleman Stadium Seat is ridiculously cheap. Of course, the model doesn't necessarily compare to >50-buck seats. Considering the very affordable price tag though, this is an excellent product that offers major value.

Because there's no frame here, the seat weighs 1.2 pounds and measures ~15.5" x 15" x 15" when opened; 15.5" x 15" x 4" when folded.

Needless to say, you'll have no issues transporting the seat. You can use the shoulder strap to sling this thing over the shoulder and you probably won't even feel its 1.2-pound presence. Also, the strap is adjustable, making the seat equally comfortable to carry for different people.

Moreover, there are also these integrated straps that let you roll up and secure this stadium seat to make sure you're able to carry the seat with other outdoor essentials.

These straps also double as the frame, keeping the back upright. That said, you can always unhook the buckles and seamlessly convert the seat into a bench pad for two people. The only downside is that these buckles are relatively flimsy, so we wouldn't recommend doing that all too often.

Last but not least, the seat comes equipped with this mesh seatback pocket that lets you enjoy the game hands-free and keep different items easily accessible at all times.

Long story short, the Coleman Stadium Seat is almost too easy on the pocket to pass up.

What is a Stadium Seat?

You can love the game/team and hate the bleachers, that's completely normal. These things are not comfortable at all. You can love outdoor concerts and hate certain aspects like sitting/standing on the ground for hours. You're not the weird one here. There are many activities that do not necessarily include comfortable sitting arrangements but benefit from them immensely.

That's where stadium seats come in. Despite the name, these seats are usually pretty suitable for many endeavors like camping, fishing, hunting, and more. You can set them up anywhere you want. Baseball, football, picnic time, you name the scene/occasion.

The biggest difference between these things and entry-level/mid-range fishing and hunting chairs are these bleacher hooks under the seat that, surprise, surprise, let you hook these seats to the bleachers.

Apart from that, you're looking for/into the same things here, including but not limited to non-slip bottoms, carry handle(s)/shoulder strap(s), armrests, pockets, etc. Consider where you'd be using the seat and what features you'll need first and foremost.

Again, the best stadium seats are pretty versatile. Occasionally, however, camping chairs and beach chairs will likely prove more suitable, so you might want to check these out too.
