Spring sports are starting- are you ready?

According to Punxsutawney Phil, spring is still a few weeks away, but many ‘spring sports’ practices are in full swing, and games are just around the corner. From baseball to track, soccer, and lacrosse, parents everywhere are gearing up for a lot of quality time on the sidelines.

March and April are fickle months; one day you’re sweating in a t shirt, and the next, shivering in your ski jacket. Temperature highs and lows often fluctuate 20° or more during the spring, depending on your location. Planning ahead for weather at outdoor activities in the spring can be a challenge, since temperatures often shift dramatically throughout the day. Here are some best practices to help you get through various outdoor activities in changeable weather.

Layering

Everyone knows that layering is a good idea, but most people don’t really know how (or what) to layer for optimum comfort. To start with, each layer has a function. The base layer (against your skin) keeps you dry, the mid (or insulating) layer protects you from the cold, and the outer layer protects you from wind and rain. Mix and match as needed; if wind and rain aren’t concerns, the first two layers may be sufficient.

If you regularly attend outdoor sporting events or go camping, it’s probably worth investing in decent equipment. Most high-quality brands are designed to take a beating and last for years. Do your research — visiting a reputable outdoor gear shop or reading reviews online can be a good start.

Addressing physical comfort

For most folks, standing during an entire little league double-header is not a good time. Bleacher seating is not much better- think hard, cold metal + annoying sports parents. Of course, we shamelessly recommend sitting in style (and comfort) in our Chaheati camp chairs. With four heated settings and a comfortable, durable design, our chairs are second-to-none when it comes to unpredictable temperatures.

Food & Beverages

Another way to keep warm or cool off at a game is from the inside out! A mug of nice, hot coffee makes a frosty, early morning event downright enjoyable, while a cold soda or bottle of water can be a life-saver in more sweltering conditions. Keeping those beverages and snacks at the proper temperature can be challenging, but an insulated cooler like this one can make a big difference to your enjoyment of that hot pastrami sandwich or cup of icy lemonade. (If you’re headed to a tailgate, check out these insulated shot glasses.)

No matter what sport your kid/niece/grandson plays, you’re bound to enjoy it more with a little advanced preparation. Sit back (preferably in your Chaheati chair), relax, and stay comfy, friends!

New Heated Add-On puts the WIN in winter!

Soccer games. Football games. Tailgating. Cold-weather camping, fishing, and hunting. Winter driving. What do they all have in common? COLD BUNS. You know the feeling. Although your camp chairs are nice and portable, they don’t have much in the way of insulation. Fishing and kayaking are great year-round sports, but freezing water rushing beneath your backside is uncomfortable at best. Didn’t preheat your car before heading to work in 20°? Unless you have heated seats, your teeth will be chattering.
