More comfortable than expected, and totally easy to carry
on December 9, 2011
I acquired this in a holiday lightning deal on Amazon for th ir ty dol l ars. It arrived very quickly and in good condition. Most importantly, it is very comfortable and seems like a sturdy, well made product. My wife and I have both used it for sitting in bleachers and we both attest to a high degree of comfort. The other reviews pretty much tell it all, but I would reinforce the point that the larger chair of the same brand is more comfortable than this one (we got one of each). However the larger one also takes up a few inches more width on the bleacher, and if you're attending an event that's crowded, you might regret it.
The person who said it's too heavy must have no arm strength whatsoever, or they're totally a troll. Although the Markwort chair is bigger and heavier than the typical padded-fabric seat (which provides vastly less support and comfort), that should come as no surprise to anyone who looks at the picture and sees its frame is made of tubular metal. For being as sturdy and well made as it is, I think it's very lightweight and easy to carry.
I'm glad we got the chair and I would highly recommend it to anyone else. In fact I'd say that if you are thinking about it, get it sooner rather than later, as it looks like something that will last a very long time. Might as well get as much use out of it as you can, while you're still sitting in bleachers watching the kids play basketball and whatnot!
