Six ways Chaheati will save you summer

Greetings and Happy Fathers’ Day, readers! As the nonstop stream of barbecues, baseball games, and longer days kick into high gear, you’ll need to be prepared. You know that rain or shine, you’ll be outside, and Chaheati has your back every time. Literally. See what we did there?

In a shameless plug for our product (it is our blog after all), we’ve assembled a list of the myriad ways Chaheati chairs can improve your quality of life this summer.

If you have kids, you’ve probably spent some portion of your life attending activities that involve hot, dusty fields and chain link backstops. Although you’ll likely transport about a half ton of gear to the field, make sure you prioritize! Your Chaheati camp chair will be the envy of all your fellow spectators as they squirm on the blazing hot bleachers. And Chaheati’s Water-Resistant Denier fabric means it will dry quickly after those summer storms that aren’t quite enough to call a rain-out, but just enough to leave things damp and uncomfortable (no guarantees that your shorts will dry as quickly).

Fireworks

As a patriotic American (sorry Canada), it’s pretty much mandatory that you find and view some kind of fireworks display on July 4. What would Independence Day be without hearing the cries of “oooohs”, “aaaahs” and “I told you not to light sparklers in the garage!” from your friends and neighbors? You’ll be pleased with Chaheati’s rugged construction and ability to stand up to 280 lbs as the small children screaming in terror start to pile up in your lap.

Parades & Festivals

Summer brings with it a nearly endless variety of summer festivals and parades. Whether you’re interested in music, historical reenactments, rodeos, or strolling heifers, someone somewhere is busily planning their homage to your favorite things. Sit parade-side in style with your oversized Chaheati chair. Bonus feature: two cup holders mean fewer trips to concession stands!

Barbecues

Fire up the grill–summer wouldn’t be complete without barbecues. Whether you like your sauce tangy, sweet, or fiery hot, you’ll need a place to sit, or face the increased probability that you will be wearing that sauce home. You’ll be grateful for the comfy, baked bean-resistant sweet seat you’re in, and our hosts will be grateful for your BYOC (bring your own chair) thoughtfulness as they haul out lawn chairs from the depths of the garage.

Camping

One of our favorite ways to use our Chaheati camp chairs is to do just that–camp! Chaheati’s rugged and durable construction means you’ll sit in comfort at the beach, on a mountaintop, or anywhere in between. The super high efficiency battery lasts for over 500 uses, which means one less thing to worry about on your trip! The water- and fire-resistant fabric make Chaheati a perfect addition to your camp furniture collection wherever you roam.

Lawn Seats

A growing number of cities and towns now boast outdoor concerts and theatrical performances, many of which have free or lower cost ‘lawn seats’ available. While lying on a blanket under the stars is a lovely idea, after an hour or so my back is not on board, and I know there will be a price to pay. In addition to the super-comfy seating surface, our Chaheati camp chair also offers four heat settings (look ma- no coil!) to keep you cozy long after the sun goes down.


We hope that wherever you are, you enjoy your summer. We love product feedback and love your Chaheati stories even more! Drop us a line and we may feature you in a future blog post. Happy summer everyone!

Baseball Spring Training Action Is Heating Up

The crack of a bat, the smell of roasted peanuts, and the end of winter all signal the return of baseball in the United States. People are grabbing their camp chairs and loading up vehicles to head to spring training baseball games and catch a glimpse — or a souvenir — of an old familiar player or an up-and-coming rookie. It gives teams the opportunity to gauge how their minor league talent is developing, often giving more proven talent the opportunity to compete for a spot on their associated MLB team.

For those who don’t know, baseball spring training is split up into two leagues: Cactus League and Grapefruit League. The Cactus League games are played in Arizona, while the Grapefruit League games are played in Florida. Most East Coast teams have spring training complexes in Florida, and West Coast teams have theirs in Arizona. There are a few exceptions, however. The Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds are examples of teams closer to the East Coast with spring training complexes in Arizona.

Pitchers and catchers reported to camp for all MLB teams by February 17, with position players reporting in four to seven days later. The first spring training exhibition game began February 24 with Florida State University losing to the Philadelphia Phillies 8–0 in the Grapefruit League. Cactus League play revved up the next day, with the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants narrowly beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 7–6. Since then things have been really heating up in spring training in both leagues.

For many young players spring training baseball is a real opportunity to prove they’re ready to play in The Bigs. Take for example the St. Louis Cardinal’s recent loss of Adam Wainwright at the beginning of spring training. The Cardinals are talking about filling Wainwright’s role from within, meaning both veterans and young players will have a shot to compete. Similar competitions are occurring in other spring training camps right now, adding extra excitement to the sport.

There’s no doubt that people are excited about heading outdoors and enjoying the warmer weather of Florida and Arizona spring training. Baseball fans take this stuff seriously. You can find all sorts of spring training guides and early player reports on most any major sports network. Some fans are so serious about it that they’re not afraid to give their picks for the best food in Arizona and Florida. And with a reported 2.87 million reported fans in attendance in both leagues last year, the popularity of spring training baseball looks to remain strong.
