Whether you’re watching your kid’s little league baseball game or supporting your state university football team in an epic battle against their formidable rivals, sitting on cold hard bleachers is a huge pain in the butt.
Bleachers are cold, hard and just plain horrible to sit on. Real sports fans know to bring their own cushions or seat padding to prevent their butts from freezing. This works well for a while, but there’s usually no back support so you’ll soon be feeling soreness in your back as you try to stay comfortable during the game.
That’s why you absolutely have to consider using bleacher seats with back rests! They’re ergonomically designed to keep you comfortable and happy for hours without even giving it a second thought.
Let’s take a look at six of the nicest portable stadium seats that will make your next sports game a painless experience.
Ventura Reclining Stadium Seat

The Ventura folds flat and has an awesome backpack strap configuration which makes transport to the stadium or the sports field a breeze. A zippered storage pocket finishes of the seat nicely.
It is slightly larger than the other chairs and a tad heavier, but the size and comfort of the high density foam seat pads make it well worth the extra weight.

Why Buy a Portable Sports Cushion Chair with a Back Rest
There are a few health problems that can arise from staying seated for a long time on hard cold concrete with a straight edge.

Other problems that can be caused by this are varicose veins in middle aged to older people.
And finally another medical problem caused by sitting for extended periods on cold hard surfaces are those inevitable nasty things called Haemorrhoids! No one wants these!
In general, sitting for long periods on a hard stadium seat is just plain uncomfortable and can lead to numerous health issues. Going to the stadium should be a pleasant experience, not one where everyone leaves with a sore butt.
