I learned recently that there are reviews for everything online, except for bleachers, outdoor benches, aluminum bleachers, portable benches and baseball bleachers. Now, let us be honest for a second. I am not certified in bleacher reviews or comparisons. I did not take any formal education in bleachers. I am not a metallurgist. I am a regular Dad that has sat on every bleacher growing up and now watching my kids. I have sat in the bleachers where the persons knees can’t help but stick in your back the entire game. I have sat in the bleachers with no aisles that require people to tap on shoulders, step on legs and drop everybody’s soda just to get to the bathroom. I have sat on really tall bleachers that allow young kids to go underneath them to makeout. I have searched for my own outdoor portable bench that could accommodate me, my wife, my four kids and our cousin/friend/neighbor to all sit on. I have complained about bleachers, the feeling of cold aluminum on a winter day and the overall uncomfortable feeling that one gets sitting on a bleacher. I have had jobs cleaning bleachers, setting up bleachers, putting down bleachers and coaching high school sports. I do feel qualified to review bleachers.
LET’S START WITH THE ONE BENCH BLEACHER REVIEWS
This portable bench is made of Aluminum. It is 7 1/2 feet long which means that it can fit about 5 adults comfortably and you could probably jam up to 7-10 kids. It is professional looking. I like the colors. It comes in silver, blue and red. My cousins had two of these benches lined up along their outdoor basketball court. They are pretty. They look good and are long lasting. They come with “end caps” which is probably for safety purposes. More than once, one of us was knocked into the end of the bench which could have caused problems without the caps. They also have ‘no slip surfaces’ on the seats. You won’t be sliding all over the place. BUY ON AMAZON
Price is generally between $226 to $1400*
Aluminum Outdoor benches are a great addition to outdoor basketball courts, parks, school playgrounds and gymnasiums.
LARGE OUTDOOR BLEACHER REVIEWS
Are you putting in a baseball park? Do you need additional seating for your school’s football stadium? This VIP bleacher is a Very Good Option. It has an aisle with a handrail WHICH IS DIFFICULT to find on a bleacher set this size. Are you kidding? An aisle? Love aisles. The fenced railing is a great safety feature. Your kids won’t fall off of the back or sides of the bleacher. It is big enough for about 144 average size folks. I’m not talking about the Big people that you see around alot more now. I mean average size. The Aluminum seats are “anodized” which is a process that increases corrosion and wear resistance, and reduces the likelihood of discoloration. BUY ON AMAZON
Price is generally between $20,000 and $25,000 (SAVINGS ON AMAZON)*

TIP N’ROLL BLEACHER REVIEWS
Every AAU and High School gym needs a set of these Tip N’Roll portable bleacher sets. We have all sat on them. We all know how uncomfortable they can be, but how much better they are than sitting on the floor. These Tip N’Roll Bleachers are “double planked” for additional leg room. However, it will still feel worse than an airplane ride. Swivel casters means that even the most out of shape janitor can hoist this set on his own. I would say if you are putting 40 adults on here you are in trouble. BUY ON AMAZON
Price is generally between $3,000 and $4,000*

STADIUM CHAIR REVIEWS
OK Young people. Quit making fun of the old people sitting in the stadium chairs. I was there. I swore I would never bring a stadium chair to the football game. They just looked nerdy. Boy was I wrong. 10 Years and I bad back later I would never attempt to sit through a baseball or football or basketball game for that matter without my Stadium Chair. There are some great ones now too. BUY ON AMAZON
Price is generally about $50.00 or less for a Stadium Chair*
PORTABLE BLEACHER REVIEWS
These are some heavy duty Portable bleachers. When I say portable, I don’t mean put them in your car and take them to the ballgame. I mean if you have a huge storage shed and only play games on the weekend at the park, than you can move these bleachers out into the park. You need a Portable Bleacher Kit and a Tractor.
These particular bleachers (by Barco) are made of Aluminum with Five Rows. As you can see, it looks that they can fit about 6 or 7 comfortably on each row. BUY ON AMAZON Price is generally above $1,200*
PORTABLE BENCH REVIEWS
Love these Portable Fold up chairs. Now, you are not going to sit a whole group of fans on them, but you will fit a family or two. This Kwik bench is Sturdy and holds up well. Love the back support on this bench. Folds out easily enough that my non-mechanical Dad can do it. Collapses easily with steel frame for long lasting support. BACK SUPPORT SELLS IT. BUY ON AMAZON
Price is generally a little above $100.00*
