The Hobie Mirage Inflatable Seat Pad is an additional cushion that attaches to the standard foam seat pad for Hobie Mirage kayaks. Adjust the cushion by adding or releasing air pressure with the air valve. Like an inflatable camping pad, the Hobie Mirage Inflatable Seat Pad has an internal self inflating foam and an air valve through which the pad can be further inflated / deflated to suit the users comfort. Not designed for use on Hobie Mirage Inflatable kayaks.

Review: The pad helps but it doesn't solve all of the problems with the Hobie Mirage seat because it doesn't give you any additional padding over the webbing with the pegs that hold the seat in place. I’ve always considered the Hobie Mirage well designed except for the seat. Basically it has no comfortable position because of the way it fits into the “scooped out” seat area. It forces your bottom to slide down and back on the webbing that the pegs are attached to. This feels like you are sitting in a hard trench. The second problem is the pressure that it puts on the back of your legs between the hips and the knees, where the scoop angles up to the middle of the kayak. This cuts off circulation in the back of your legs. An improved pad design would be a wedge that is at least 4 inches thick at the back of the pad, then tapers to 1 to 2 inches thick at the front of the pad. Instead of attaching to the seat by a flap like the existing pad, add 2 Velcro straps to the top and bottom of the back side of the pad that are long enough to wrap around to seat back to hold the pad in place. This would be a simple design that could be quickly attached to the seat and you would still be able to reach under it to line up the seat pegs to the holes in the kayak. Attaching it to the back of the seat rather than the web and peg part would put padding over the web and pegs. Hobie still has work to do to improve the seat and/or pad.

Review: Spent about 12 to 16 hours in that seat over 3 days in SW Florida bay fishing. Made a huge difference.

Review: very nice product. Self-inflates to perfect thickness, or you can inflate more if desired. Velcro's securely to the Hobie seat. Appears sturdy enough to last awhile. Really makes a difference in butt comfort.

Review: Expensive, but worth it. Before buying this, I tried a 20 dollar inflatable thermarest pad. That only lasted a couple of trips before it started leaking. This Hobie pad is far more rugged and I'm confident it will last a long time (6 trips so far).
