kid-sitting-on-soccer-ballLet me start by stating that I am not a soccer mom. I enjoy a kid’s soccer game as much as a guy can that has no parental or time invested in it….but I do know that I want to be comfortable. Especially sitting on the sidelines of the field watching kids run around like crazy little chickens.

My first experience on the sidelines was my niece’s soccer game. I quickly realized that the only seating for me was a bucket turned. So, I sat there for a short time on that “seat”, longing for the seat the mom a few feet away was sitting on….sipping her latte.  I also noticed that the kids were not sitting on any comfortable seating either, but the ground (which is fine, they are kids after all) or buckets like the one I was sitting on.

At the time, I did not know that things like the TravelBench existed. I did notice that the mom sitting down from me had a little seat for her kid, though, and thought “why don’t they have seats for all the kids?” Multiple person seating has always been something stationary, never something you can just throw in the trunk and bring with you…. until now.  Now TravelChair has a collapsible bench that offers seating for as many as 6 adults at a time.  And with a 300 lb. weight capacity, even Big Uncle Joe can sit with the team.

I think if more people knew about products like the multi person TravelBench, they would absolutely use it for these kids. It is durable, easy to use, and takes up less storage space than that cooler full of soda. Not to mention you get seating for 6 adult size people for only $105, seriously that is a steal!


Dimensions (Closed): 19″ x 16.5″ x 18″

599My suggestion: get some seating for the kid’s team before the next season of soccer or football starts.  Maybe get yourself a comfort chair like the Big Kahuna.  Extra comfortable and oversized, it has side storage compartments for snacks and a tablet or two.

Slacker Stool- 1389V

"I now keep one in my car ready for any type of activity where sitting is preferable than standing. You can insert your own activity here. The size make this easy to grab when in doubt, and has often served as a life saver.

Easily stored and low-profile. Almost no bigger or heavier than an umbrella. You will not complain taking it with you and will be rewarded by being rested and comfortable when you get up."

    Joey Chair- 7789V

    "After owning this chair for a little more than half a year, I can confirm that this chair is all-around amazing. It is extremely comfortable and it is pretty light weight.

    As others have mentioned, the feet outperform other chairs that have straight feet in the sand. The feet design allows for the chair to sit on top of sand rather than sinking in.

    My friends are always jealous when I bring this chair to the park (which is every time, since its so easy to pack). So much that we often end up taking turns on it 
    If you're debating whether or not to get it, do yourself a favor and just buy it!"

    Big Kahuna- 599

    "Awesome sturdy comfortable chair. I don't know why but I am the King Champion of breaking folding camp chairs. I am 6'2" 295lbs and have broke many 300lbs rated chairs, one chair cut up the back of my knee pretty good when it failed.

    My son is 6'7" 325lbs and plays major college football, he has not even come close to breaking as many chairs as I have. Well the Big Kahuna Chair is rock solid and comfortable I don't ever see this chair failing. If it ever does I'll post it."
